Bitten: Tim Horton's Pomegranate Danish

Posted by Jennifer

Say it ain’t so, pomegranate. Have you really gone from “It” fruit status to latest flavour of a Tim Horton’s cheese Danish? Scanning the display case, one finds it is only too true.

The glob of jelly in the centre of is certainly a deep, rich pomegranate-ish red. But, bite into this fancifully named bun and what registers? Why, only the unmistakable taste of a Tim Horton’s pastry. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but there is none of that uniquely astringent zip we expect from pomegranate.

Yes, you leathery red orb, your name is known on every street corner in Toronto, at every small town’s major intersection from Goderich to Cochrane(birthplace of the infamous Maple Leaf defenceman). But, you
sold your soul.
