If you ask my friends and family what my favourite food is, they’ll likely tell you that it’s Japanese, Thai, Korean AND Greek! I love them all! In fact, I love Greek food so much that for my birthday a few years ago, my friend and my husband threw me a surprise birthday party with a Greek theme! They converted my house into a Greek Acropolis! Guests even showed up wearing togas! It was incredible! The food (cooked by my friend’s amazing husband) was amazing!
When I heard that Tim Hortons guests can now enjoy a little taste of Greece while on the go with the new deliciously thick and creamy Greek Yogurt parfait with mixed berries, I was so excited! Also available is the Greek yogurt and almond granola or a Fruit Smoothie now made with Greek Yogurt. So delicious, so refreshing, and so perfect on a hot Summer day! Breakfast, snack, or something quick for on the go, the Greek yogurt menu items at Tim Hortons are ideal for everyone in the family.
Tim Hortons new Greek Yogurt parfait is made with creamy, vanilla or strawberry Greek yogurt, real mixed berries and crunchy almond granola. With 13-grams of protein, 6-grams of fibre and 35 per cent of the Daily Value of calcium per serving, it offers a delicious and satisfying menu option.
“Greek yogurt has become increasingly popular among our guests and whether they are looking for a great breakfast option or a more satisfying snack, it’s now easier than ever to enjoy this delicious and healthy yogurt while on the go,” said Tammy Martin, Vice President Marketing, Food and Merchandise, Tim Hortons. “The introduction of Greek yogurt to the Tim Hortons menu is just one example of our commitment to offering better-for-you options to our guests and we know they are going to love it.”
My 5 year old loves the Greek yogurt menu items. She’s like her Mom…she LOVES Greek yogurt!
The new Greek Yogurt with mixed berries and almond granola is available at Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada for $2.99. Tim Hortons Fruit Smoothies are the perfect blend of real fruit juices and purees combined with Greek yogurt and are available in three sizes starting at $2.69.

Your perfect match is:
If you selected “a” most often, your perfect match is:
Eros, the god of love. He is your ideal mate, providing hope for the hopeless romantic. This is one man you can never accuse of not being romantic enough. Get ready for candlelight dinners, spontaneous gifts and long walks on the beach. Your man will never forget another anniversary, birthday or romantic milestone. Be prepared to be spoiled.
If you selected “b” most often, your perfect match is:
Heracles (aka Hercules), the divine hero, paragon of masculinity. Calling him a man’s man is putting it
mildly – he practically invented the category. He is a fearless male who likes to stay active, loves sports and the great outdoors. Definitely not a home body, Hercules will require some alone time, as his adventures often require travel, and they may not be places that would make for an ideal date.
If you selected “c” most often, your perfect match is:
Apollo, god of light, knowledge and the arts. He is ideal for any woman looking for a complex, multi-talented man. The ultimate companion for any dinner party, he can speak intelligently on a number of topics. Apollo is a real combination of brains and beauty, he has been described as possessing the “ideal physique”. Don’t expect things to slip his mind, after all, he is the body of perfectionism.
