If you live in either Kingston or Sudbury, your Monday morning double-double order might have been a tad complicated.
Here's a sign that explains it better:
And — in a move that's now four ounces more than a Starbucks "venti" (!) — there is now an 24-ounce (710 mL) "extra large".
Tim Hortons claims that the Sudbury and Kingston "market test" has been done in order to reflect customers new appetite for sizing up.
We truly believe that this photo captures the exact moment this flavour was concocted.
So, we wonder:
I rarely ever go to Tim Horton, or any other coffee shops, if I do, however I refuse to use a drive through, I despise them.
If I have to get up early for some reason and would like a coffee I will set up my coffee maker the night before and have it timed to start about 15 minutes before I get up, this way I have a nice fresh cup of coffee when coming out of the shower. If I need to leave immediately, I just fill up my travel cup.
My wife on the other hand hand hasn't met a Tim Horton she doesn't like, but mostly when she's by herself, she knows that I'm not a big fan and she probably uses the drive through, but that's something we don't talk about, she knows my opinion on the subject.
I can go without coffee if their is none available or don't have time to make it (forgot to setup the coffee maker) or I can gulp down 3 or 4 cups and go to sleep right after without any problems, maybe I'm lucky (or not) that caffeine doesn't seem to affect me.
So now Canadians are going to again follow the Americans and supersize everything? Sheesh..What's next?
The new small size clothes are the new large? I only have one cup of de-calf a day. Discipline is all one needs.
I don't know about others but I do not necessaryily enjoy large coffees. I always get a small. All Tims wants is an excuse to make more money. I wonder what would happen if I just asked for 1/2 cup.
I hope the test markets give Tim Horton's a message.
The other problem with a large coffee is that coffee is like beer, you don't buy, you only rent it.
How's that 45 minutes drive to work in the morning? :-)
That's another thing that drives me bunkers, when I walk into a coffee shop, the list of various flavors and what not, I figure that one needs a university degree in coffeeology to figure all that stuff out. What's an Irish cream Brazilian mocha with sprinkles, double frappe (what they beat the thing up before serving it?) or whatever bizarre concoctions and treatment? I hear they even make coffee from beans that have first passed through the digestive system of some wild cat, man how blasted do you need to be to try that one?
Invariably, I would avoid looking at the large list on the wall behind the cashier, lest my eyes would glaze over and they would think that I need strong coffee to recover some wild party the night before. I would walk up to the counter and ask for the strongest non perfumed medium coffee with just one cream, no sugar (I'm sweet enough) and the occasional blue berry muffin, thank you.
Hmm, I dont do Tim Horntons
use Second Cup or Starbucks
but at home
I make about 2 cups in the AM
that's my limit
I get a kick out of this resizing. Yrs ago an extra large was 2 cups of coffee or tea. Now it is a little over my morning cup. the sm. is crazy. I am not sure if they thought we were that stupid not to see the cups get smaller as the price rose. I get a steeped tea once in a while, and will not spend more than 4. dollars are I refuse to pay tax on my sons coffee and my tea. If there are more than 2 in the vehicle I do 2 orders so they do not get tax from me from thier over priced smaller cups.
So from the looks of it they are going back to about the original sizes they once had at just alot more money.
