What are Tim Hortons Anytime Snacker menu items?

In November 2022, Tim Hortons introduced a new category of savoury snacks to its menu for customers to enjoy a light bite alongside another meal or on its own. The Anytime Snackers are an extension of their other savoury items but include flaky and buttery baked goods. You might have already enjoyed Tim Hortons’ Herb and Garlic and Jalapeno pastries, and if that’s the case, then now there are more scrumptious options to choose from.

How do the Tim Hortons Savoury Pinwheels taste?

While we love Tim Hortons donuts and breakfast sandwiches, the Savoury Pinwheels have easily found a spot in our hearts.

The first bite of the Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Savoury Pinwheel was quite delightful. Not only was the pastry bursting with flavour, but it was also perfectly warm. The roasted red pepper is quite herb-forward and tastes similar to a marinara sauce. However, the addition of Swiss cheese made for a balanced bite. Overall, it tasted like a croissant version of a pizza, and we’re here for it.

Meanwhile, the Caramelized Onion and Parmesan Savoury Pinwheel was shockingly delicious. While we thought the Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss would be the winner of this taste test, our opinion changed after a few bites of the Caramelized Onion and Parmesan pinwheel. The bag it came in was quite aromatic in the best kind of way. The pastry’s flaky outer layer gave it a satisfying crunch, while the inside was addictively gooey. If you’re worried about the onion being too overpowering, it really wasn’t, which is why it took us by complete surprise.

Overall, the pinwheels are perfect for anyone looking for a cheap and quick pick-me-up snack without the mess.
