Health Facts Monday – Calories Face-Off: Starbucks VS. Tim Hortons

In “Health Facts Monday“,  we will REVEAL ANY HEALTH SECRETS THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE OF and ANY NASTY TRUTH PEOPLE WANT TO EARMUFF THEIR EARS BUT THEY STILL HAVE TO KNOW.

Going to Starbucks and Tim Hortons has became Canadian’s daily routine. When something has become a daily routine, people are not aware of what they consume.  Do those people really know how many calories are in their favourite bagel? or their favourite breakfast? or their favourite donut? I AM ABOUT TO REVEAL THESE UGLY AND NASTY TRUTHS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.

1) Breakfast (Tim Hortons WINS!)

4) Drink (Timmies WINS!)

5) Yogurt (Timmies WINS!)

Starbucks’ Strawberry and Blueberry Yogurt Parfait (right) – 270 calories

Ultimately,Tim Hortons’s food and drinks have less calories than Starbucks in general. Well, this does not apply to every food and drink (I used the popular products to compare), but my goal is to give people perspective and to make people aware of how many calories are these two chains serving. For myself, I seldom buy food from both places because I do not like their food and I sometimes buy Starbucks mocha as a treat for myself.  I also hate Tim Hortons coffee because they taste yucky (maybe thats why the calories is lower than Starbucks).

Do you always go to Starbucks or Tim Hortons? What do you usually buy in there? Post your comments below. Till next time.
