TORONTO — Tim Hortons has added a new certified gluten-free Coconut Macaroon to its menu.
“We’sve made a commitment to our guests to provide balanced menu choices, and the new Gluten-Free Coconut Macaroon is an example of that,” said Donna Finelli, VP, Marketing, Food and Merchandise.
“Given the growing number of people who have celiac disease and gluten intolerance, we’sre making it just a little bit easier for friends and families to enjoy eating together at our restaurants. And, the new macaroon tastes fantastic, which makes it a great snacking option for everyone, not just those with gluten intolerance.”
The new meringue-style cookie is certified gluten-free through the Canadian Celiac Association (CCA) Gluten-Free Certification Program, which is Canada’s voluntary certification program designed for manufacturers of gluten-free products. The cookie is sold in a pre-wrapped two-piece package to avoid cross-contamination and is available at Tim’s restaurants across Canada for $1.29.
