I did notice a while back their coffee sizes were kinda small but they've fixed that and now their old medium size is now their small size.

From what i've seen on infrequent drive bys is all their clientele have a lot in common with Honey Boo Boo and her mom. The place should be legislated out of business in the interests of humanity.
This just gives you an idea how the make their chocolate..http://www.rogallery.com/_RG-Images/...kin_Donuts.jpg

Not that I eat at either, but Tim's is no better. Just because you are Canadian shouldn't mean you can make such a biased statement.

The wildly popular Tim Bits are simply disgusting. The only reason people buy them is because they are cheap.
Believe it or not, Tim Hortons used to be pretty good. That was before they foisted this "parbaking" nonsense onto an unsuspecting public.
They ought to be hauled before a judge for false advertising when they say, "Always Fresh".

Sshhh - don't tell anyone. Your club might get banned from using them as a meeting place.

Just joking of course but yesterday they did put the kibosh on the Sensible BC campaigners from holding any more meetings at all Timmys locations.

We usually do Sunday fun runs, a local Tim Hortons Parking lot is a convenient place to meet.

Kinda off topic, jambo, so I'll keep it short; what do you drive and what town do you meet in?

They also used to try and charge a size differential for their tea until enough people complained (after all, you are only getting one bag and just more water). So what did they do? They came out with their steeped tea so they could use even less bags and continue to charge a size differential.

Only after they felt the substantial heat from competition like McDonalds, where a medium is the equivalent of a Timmies quadruple extra-large, they saw the light and decided that they should bring back a more fair cup size. And bagged tea.

They took advantage of decades of customer loyalty by being greedy and ripping people off. Now that they have stiff competition they suddenly love us again and want to make nice. I say to hell with them and their trucker-swill mud water and cardboard eats.
