Hello all. Just as a general poll more or less: 1. What is your favorite drink from Tim Hortons? 2. What is your favorite treat from Tim Hortons? 3. Have you tried the new breakfast sandwich? Explain why each is your favorite, and if this is your regular order at Tim Hortons. For those of you that don't enjoy Tim Hortons, what is it that you don't like about it?

Well, Tim Hortons is a coffee shop. It serves coffee, hot chocolate, hot smoothies and loads of good food. It is Canadian based, and I didn't think about the fact that the majority of people on here aren't from Canada, which I do apologize for. Thank you for responding :)

1. Hot Chocolate 2. donut with sprinkles 3. yes and they are gross 4. There is no reason they are my favorite, I just enjoy them. I don't drink coffee or tea. It is not often I get a donut but when I do this is the only one I will eat.

Thanks for responding. My daughters also enjoy the vanilla dipped donuts. Have you tried the hot chocolate with a shot of the raspberry flavoring in it? It's amazing if you like raspberry! Thanks again :)

There is only 1, that's right ONE in town, and that's not here, that is in Town ...blah! Newfoundland should come together and fight for one in the Crossing! It would make a killing!

Well I live in Michigan and not in Canada so my experience with Tim Hortons isn't so vast. I don't remember what I got there all I know is it was an upscale dunk n donuts and a downscale Panera. I do know they have good coffee and many people like to buy it. What I don't like about Tim Hortons is that it is a canadian company so all franchise ownerships spreading across the US that have profits are going into Canada and not the US... just like everything else nowadays.

WOW!!! I am floored by that comment!!! I am not even gonna try and be polite about this!!!! (I'll follow in American footsteps!) pure ignorance at its finess!!! But then again that's pretty typical! How many American Franchises exist not only in Canada but all over the world empoverishing local communities while the profits are sucked out and sent back to the U.S. Look at South America and the amount of Free Trade that goes on!!! I cannot believe you would even say that!!!! You obviously have never left your "oh so glorious nation!" To cure a bit of your ignorance you might want to look up what companies like Coca-Cola & Walmart and the list goes have done to effect the PEOPLE!!!!! of small communities and how many products and labels are in fact owned by those companies!!!! And the devistation they have caused!! What American factories have done to Mexico!!! Mexico is right in your face and nothing has ever been done to show a bit of humanity towards your neighbours! Your comment actually disgusts me!!! As a development studies major I know what I'm talking about; I've lived through it, I've read hundreads of books on it, I've written hundreds of papers on it! The day you live in a small community down south or asia and so on ...living in favelas...living in communes ...trying to stay alive!!!! while American greed sucks every ounce of pleasure or freedom out of your life!!! is the day you can say what you jsut did!! ...but I guess it's to be expected from people who think they are "FREEDOM FIGHTERS!!!" That's a joke and half!!! That comment is the epitomy of the image the world has of Americans! IGNORANCE! Educate yourself before you shoot your mouth off about something so important! Furthermore, look up all the Puppet Leaders that have been hand picked by and for US benefit in dozens of Nations around the world where the consiquances have been horrendous! I suggests some light reading to cure your IGNORANCE!!! and if you think these books are propaganda think again...better yet get on a plain and go live in Bolivia, or Panama or Brazil or Argentina ...really anywhere and see the impact!! it's disgusting!

mmmm.... ICE CAPS!!!!! but oh so terrible for you! but the chocolat milk alternatives are still delightfull...but really nowhere near the gooodness of the cream ones! but really they are a heart attack waiting!!! also I really enjoy a couple of chocolat Tim Bits from time to time! it's always a nice treat!!! and of course I drink a little too much coffee!!! lol 3 milks 2 sweetners!! and it's never dissapointing! I also must comment that I have never yet met an unplessant employee from Tim's ...Everyone has always been friendly which is not always the case in "fast food" type restaurants! Congrats! One last thing I think is a wonderfull gesture to open a Tim Hortons in Kandahar for Canadian soldiers! regardless of supporting war or not everyone needs to remember the individual men and women out there doing their jobs and how much they REALLY DO sacrifice for their jobs!! I have friends in the military over in Afganistan and I see how much they miss things that they are deprived of and it's not like they can jsut take a ride into town and find an alternative like travellers can do! So I was very impressed that Tim Horton's was so considerate in treating our soldiers! Supporting Kid's camps is also a wonderful thing!!
