Tim Hortons has announced they are selling all-new Beyond Meat Burgers, something we noticed being tested in the GTA last month

Tim Hortons has actually made a host of announcements in the last few months. In June, the fast-food chain launched new Beyond Meat breakfast sandwiches to complement the rest of their breakfast menu.

At the same time, they also announced the new 'omelette bites,' low-carb, calorie-conscious snacks. Oh, and of course, the introduction of new drinks, like the oddly-named Creamy Chills, or the Jolly-Rancher inspired Slushy.

Today, Tim Hortons announced stores across Canada would have a new addition to their food menu: the Beyond Meat burger.

Tim Hortons is following in the footsteps of many restaurants to have added plant-based options to their menu: notably, A&W also serves the vegan burger patty.

For many, it seems like this new addition to the menu is a little off-brand: after all, most people go to Timmies for ice capps, doughnuts, and bagels, not burgers.

This girl understands what's UP. Vegan cream cheese would be DOPE.

Tim Hortons are excited to bring the burger to their menu. This is the first time the chain has been able to release a burger.

The reason for this new menu item, according to the press release is that "the burger patty is prepared in the same way as the Beyond Sausage™ patty for the new breakfast sandwiches."

Mike Hancock, Tim Horton's Chief Operating Officer, says he is "excited to be able to offer our guests a burger for the very first time."

Hanock goes on to state that, "with nearly 4,000 Tim Hortons locations across the country, we are the largest quick-service restaurant in Canada to add the Beyond Burger to our menu and at just $5.69, at one of the most affordable price points as well."

The Beyond Meat burger is available at select Tim Hortons nationwide starting today.
