  • Canadian Peeps: Don't those Tim Horton's "Egg White Breakfast Sandwich"...

    I remember thinking to myself that I don't think they could show something on the screen that I would care less about eating. At least if it had egg yolks, I could eat part of it......but egg whites, bread, processed cheese. It literally goes against everything I stand for in food!

    And forget about asking them to blend butter into your coffee!! ;-).

        Saw the commercial once on the tv in the breakroom at work. Gross.

        Timmy's used to be a daily thing for me...English Toffee cappuccino was my crack cocaine. Now they've stopped selling it at most locations around here...guess I was keeping it going! LOL

          I have always, always, had terrible eating habits, but there were two places I refused to eat: Subway and Tim Hortons. I had decided very early on, as a teen, that both establishments serve terrible tasting food that I could have made at home for a fraction of the price and made somewhat tasty.

          Tim Hortons food is nothing but bagels, crappy sandwiches, and itty bitty bowls of soup. I don't consider 'treat' junk food like doughnuts to be food.

          Oh, and my local Tim Hortons shares a roof with a Cold Stone Creamery ice cream store, just double trouble now.
          There aren't many problems in life that can't be solved by sleeping it off, or adding more butter.

            There is a Tim Horton's maybe 200 yards from my house. I have not bought anything there in at least eight years.

              Are we neighbours? Because there are only a handful with CS in BC and there's one near me too

              I still drink the coffee. Double cream. At home, and on the road. Haven't tried it with butter yet.

                Hubby and I consider a tea from Timmy's (Chamomile for me, Apple Cinnamon for him) a staple of any road trip we do. Yes, it's more expensive than bringing hot water and our own tea bags... But we only live once, so it's an indulgence I'm happy to keep.

                I used to enjoy the breakfast sandwich on a 12-grain bagel in my wheat eating days, but those are gone now since last year!

                The egg white breakfast sandwich idea, though... It's like society takes two steps forward, one step back. LOL. We are making progress - Organic food is readily available now, there are more and more grass fed meat butchers, and most restaurants have low carb meat & veggie fare. But then something like this reminds me we've got a L-O-N-G way to go!

                  Ok, fair enough on most parts, but you have to admit that Cold Stone is pretty good. I'm a sucker for ice cream in general, especially if it's custard-based (keep your ice milk at home).

                    I know this is gonna sound really silly for you guys who are used to the place, but I love Tim Horton's for the simple reason that I'm a Buffalo Sabres fan. Where I live there's only Dunkin Doughnuts, Tim's didn't quite make it this far down. We went up to Buffalo for a game once and stopped by and bought a mug and some coffee. It's now the mug that gets the most use, and in the rare chance we run out of coffee (I don't drink that much, mostly tea) I have to order it.

                    It's a weird fan thing. D: So sad he died.

                      I may change my stance on the quality of Cold Stone after reading the ingredient's list. Even the cleanest ingredients list has gums, carrageenan and polysorbate 80. Blech.

                      http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/ass...ngrediants.pdf

                      The allergen info is pretty bad, too.

                      http://www.coldstonecreamery.com/ass...rgen_chart.pdf

                      Obviously, I would expect anything with cake, batter or brownies in it to have gluten and wheat in it, but it troubles me that all wheat products are paired with soybean oil. That's just unnecessary. And the most disappointing thing of all - their ice cream is not egg-based. Very few of their ice creams have an egg allergy warning, which is a huge turnoff to me. Sigh, I guess the only good ice cream anymore is the stuff you make yourself.

                      Just look at the ingredients for peanut butter ice cream:

                      SWEET CREAM ICE CREAM (Cream, Nonfat Milk, Milk, Whey, Sugar, Corn Syrup, Guar Gum, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan, Mono & Diglycerides, Polysorbate 80, and Annatto Extract), PEANUT BUTTER (Peanuts, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (rape seed, cotton seed, and soya bean oil))

                      Seriously, why is there hydrogenated oil in PEANUT BUTTER? It's the cheapest stuff on Earth. Even Shop Rite brand peanut butter is just peanuts and salt. Why does it have to be fortified with trans fats? They don't even know what kind of oil is in it. This and/or stuff has to stop. Peanut butter ice cream should be: "Cream, milk, peanut butter, eggs, sugar, extracts/alcohols." In that order. That's it. Ugh.

                        Graeter's Ice Cream, Quality Ingredients Make Our Ice Cream Better

                        Graeters kicks Coldstone in the ass. And they are custard based, made with eggs! :-) And no corn syrup, at least in the simpler flavors.

                          Graeter's.com - Ice Cream - Peanut Butter

                          Theirs is made with Palm Oil :-( Maybe you can market Primal Ice cream.... have a line with coconut milk for the non-dairy peeps.

                          I need to make ice cream soon. My fave is pumpkin. I could sweeten with maple syrup.....

                            Moving back to Canada from the UK, everywhere is oh you have to get a Timmies coffee....can you say disappointed?!?
                            Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                              Cream, milk, cane sugar, peanut butter (dry roasted peanuts, sugar, palm oil, sea salt), milk chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, soy lecithin, vanilla), skim milk, eggs, soy oil, vanilla extract, carob bean gum, guar gum
                              Palm oil is fine. It has a great lipid profile. My concern is that, once again, their is soybean oil in peanut butter ice cream. I don't understand it. Why would there be oil in ice cream? It's not even mixed in with the peanut butter. It's so frustrating. Sometimes you just want to grab something when you're drunk at 2am on a Saturday night. Everything is off limits!

                              Breyers honestly has some of the best ingredients in ice cream. Their vanilla is just cream, milk, sugar and vanilla. But it's ice milk. I want eggs. I can make pretty good ice cream, but it's not a professional ice cream maker so I can't get great overlap. You kinda have to eat it quickly or it'll slowly get harder and harder until it's a brick. I wish I could get 30% or so overlap in my ice cream. I bet Breyers has over 50% and is full of air.
