Tim Hortons Does a 180!

Tim Hortons has always been a no-go for Celiacs. Their allergen guide states, “If you have a food allergy, we recommend that you refrain from eating our products.” Ouch!

However, all that has changed with a new, Canadian Celiac Association-certified gluten-free coconut macaroon! You can see it on this page. I called their customer service line to double-check, and they confirmed that the macaroons are produced and packaged in a completely gluten-free facility to prevent cross-contamination. This is an incredible turnaround that we never expected to see. I’m hoping that if this trial run is successful, they’ll add more products to the gluten-free line, just like Dunkin Donuts has done in the United States.

We’re going to track some of these macaroons down today, and we’ll let you know once we have taste tested!

    Dear Celiacs – continue to refrain from eating Tim Hortons’ products, your health overall will thank you. (It will also thank you if you avoid Dunkin’ Donuts too). The vast majority of Tim Hortons’ offerings are chock full of genetically modified organisms which are not safe for human consumption unless you only believe industry-funded, ghostwritten pseudoscience.

    I saw them in the Auld’s Cove Tim Hortons, but didn’t buy them because the ingredient list was too chemically laden for my tastes. Macroons should just be coconut, egg whites and sugar.
