People don’t just hate this egg change, they really hate it. Says another signer, “Gross…. Tastes horrible. Loved the old style breakfast sandwiches and used to have them 2-3 times a week. Off to Starbucks and McDonald’s for breakfast from now on. Goodbye Tim Hortons!”
And if Timmy’s fans are looking for a new home, McDonald’s Canada has definitely been listening. The golden arches threw some serious shade when Tim Hortons announced its cracked egg menu update. Matching its competitor’s Twitter profile, McDonald’s changed its pic to a breakfast sandwich with cracked egg too and added an egg-emoji-filled caption, “Servin’ up freshly cracked eggs since 1976,” (via NarCity).
And if you think Tim Hortons has been oblivious this whole time, have some hope for change. The nearly universal dislike of this switch has been noted by management in a very Canadian fashion, which includes a link for a quick private message on the topic, “Our Tim Hortons breakfast sandwiches and wraps are now made with freshly cracked, 100% Canadian eggs. If you are dissatisfied with the change, we do apologize, please send us your contact details, as well as the location, and we will share your feedback with the restaurant,” (via Twitter).
And while most people are unhappy, know that at least one person enjoys the new experience commenting, “I love the new Eggs! I love the texture and the flavour they actually taste like eggs now.”
