Tim Hortons is no longer selling Beyond Meat products
On Tuesday, Tim Hortons announced that it will no longer be selling Beyond Meat products at any of its coffee and doughnut shops in Canada.
The news comes after Tim Hortons cut plant-based burgers and sandwiches from its menu in September across all provinces except for B.C. and Ontario.
A spokeswoman for Tim Hortons said that “the product was not embraced by our guests as we thought it would be.”
However, she didn't rule out reintroducing more plant-based products to the menu in future.
So far, the reaction to the news has been mixed — some Canadians are happy that Tim Hortons is returning to its roots.
Yay!!! That was gross. Lol 😂 It’s a donut and coffee shop, not a fast food restaurant! If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it @TimHortons Tim Hortons pulls Beyond Meat products from Ontario, British Columbia https://t.co/5dWP7S4usO— Georgia B (@mrsburnside2011) January 29, 2020
And others are going to miss the Beyond Meat sausages.
Straight up. The beyond meat sausages taste better than the meat ones. Tim Hortons was bad at the burgers, but they're pretty good too.— Rob Clark (@EsehlCanada) January 29, 2020
This Twitter user defended Beyond Meat's honour.
I don’t think the blame lies on Beyond Meat. What Tim Hortons offered was garbage. It was a veg sausage patty and a piece of lettuce between bread. Zero sauce or anything. Was dry and meh https://t.co/Um40x5kjgv— Sophia Banks (@sophiaphotos) January 29, 2020
And this Canadian just couldn't believe the news.
Canadians will simply have to get their vegan fast-food fix by ordering Subway's new Beyond Meatball sub instead.
