'No one thought of Bublé balls?': Michael Bublé and Vancouverites react to new 'Timbiebs' flavours (VIDEO)

Tim Hortons and Justin Bieber partnered to launch three new Timbits flavours

The most highly-anticipated doughnut drop of 2021 kicks off in participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada and the United States today. 

Starting Monday (Nov. 29), "Beliebers" and die-hard Timmies aficionados can sink their teeth into three new flavours of Timbits — Tim Hortons' iconic, bite-size doughnut holes. 

Aptly named "Timbiebs" to celebrate the partnership with the "Yummy" pop star, the flavours include Chocolate White Fudge, Sour Cream Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake Waffle. Additionally, Tim Hortons is selling a co-branded merchandise lineup that includes a cozy beanie, a fanny pack, and a tote bag.

"Doing a Tim Hortons collab has always been a dream of mine," said Bieber in a release. "I grew up on Tim Hortons and it's always been something close to my heart."

Eager Vancouverites took to Twitter Monday morning to share their enthusiasm, mixed feelings, or utter disgust for the sweet treats. 

Popular Canadian crooner Michael Bublé shared a hilarious TikTok where he admitted that "Timbiebs" is "cute" but that he had a better idea. 

"I feel like it's a bit of a missed opportunity," he said. "I mean, no one thought of Bublé balls?" 

While Timbiebs are a hit with many Tim Hortons fans, others aren't loving the Bieber-themed minis. 

Other people had high expectations for the Bieber-inspired pastries, although they didn't say they were gross. 

Some people are raving about the taste but feel somewhat embarrassed asking for the sweet treat. One man commented: "I felt like the workers were judging me."

Many "Beliebers" are also buying the merchandise associated with the pop star's doughnut drop. 

But many locals aren't thrilled about the cost of the highly-anticipated Timbiebs accessories — especially when a toque costs a whopping $33.
