Tim Horton's employees are famous of accommodating unusual requests. As long as they're not too busy and you're willing to pay a little extra, they are usually willing to help you out.
And if they won't you can always buy the items and combine them yourself.
Hashbrowns On Everything
Tim Hortons hashbrowns are great. So great that people starting putting them directly inside the sandwich. these days Timmies has several sandwiches that include a hashbrown, but feel free to ask them to throw into any other sandwich or wrap.
Timmies has 5 different flavor shots available. Hazelnut, Raspberry, Mint Chocolate, Vanilla and Espresso. These are normally reserved for coffees, but did you know that you can add a flavor shot to pretty much any drink? Raspberry shot in an iced cap anyone?
There aren't enough items with cheese on the Timmies menu, that's why some customers have started adding cheese everywhere. On popular request is sprinkle cheese on a chili bowl. Another more daring option that people are asking for, is to put cream cheese on top of the whipped cream in your drink. I don't recommend it.
Donuts Instead Of Bread
Bread is boring and predictable, so why not use a donut as the main component of your sandwich? It's pretty much like a bagel, but with sprinkles. Timmies will gladly slice your donut in half and stuff it full eggs, cheese and bacon, you just have to ask nicely.
Now that Timmies has wedges in addition to the hashbrown, you can always ask them to swap one for the other. (though you might have to pay a little extra) .
The Mac & Cheese Wedge Poutine
This one is a little out there, so you may want to order these item to go and assemble it yourself at home (people might look at you weird). You buy an order of potato wedges and either a chili bowl or a mac and cheese bowl and you dump the bowl on top the wedges, it's messy, it looks horrific, but it tastes like magic.
Is your grilled cheese or cream cheese bagel boring? Ask hem to throw in some tomatoes or cucumbers to instantly step it up.
Sure, you can have one of Timmies' many sandwiches, or can start with a grilled cheese as a blank canvas and add only the items you want. (bacon, bacon, bacon, bacon)
Half & Half Drinks
These are very popular, especially the coffee/mocha combo. But now that holiday drinks are out, you have a million new possibilities. Anyone up for a salty caramel/white hot chocolate?
Chocolate Whipped Cream
Yup, they have it. And you'll never opt for regular whipped cream again.
So simple yet so brilliant, also works great for the croissants and pastries.
You might love to drink Tim Hortons "double doubles," but have you ever wanted to look like one?
Just in time for National Coffee Day, Tim Hortons is releasing a whole new line of swag called the Double Double Collection — an exclusive line of clothing that will only be available at Tim Hortons Canada.
Tim Hortons' Double Double Collection will have uniquely branded hoodies, T-shirts, sweatpants, and travel mugs and will be launched in both French (Deux Deux) and English (Double Double).
What makes the merchandise so unique is that the products "all feature Tim's signature double-double colour, inspired by the colour of the popular two-milk, two-sugar coffee," according to a statement shared with MTL Blog.
The collection will be available exclusively on thedripdrop.ca on September 29 at 10 a.m.
"Since Tim Hortons coffee is freshly brewed every 20 minutes, they will be delivering fresh options every 20 minutes until 6 p.m.," explained a company spokesperson.
The store, owned by Mathieu Côté, sold over 29,350 Smile Cookies, raising money for the Suroît Hospital Foundation in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield.
Nationally, the Tim Hortons Smile Cookie campaign raised over $12 million for charities across Canada.
This is a historic record for the campaign, far eclipsing the previous record of $10.5 million. One hundred percent of the profits will go towards various charities.
"Every year, Tim Hortons restaurant owners go above and beyond to raise money for our annual Smile Cookie campaign, and it is truly inspiring to be part of such an important initiative," Hope Bagozzi, marketing director at Tim Hortons, said in a statement.
A store in Dunnville, Ontario, sold the most Smile Cookies for the fourth year in a row, selling nearly 48,000.
Coffees of any size and sort (Iced, Dark Roast, Decaf) are part of the deal. One coffee is allotted to each app-user, and you do have to complete a transaction beforehand (or load $10 onto the app’s account) before being able to claim your gratis cup of Joe.
Tim Hortons locations across Canada and the U.S. will be participating in this Coffee Day celebration, which runs until October 8th.
Interestingly, National Coffee Day is held on the 29th of September in the United States. International Coffee Day, which Canada actually recognizes, is on October 1st.
Cleverly, Tim Hortons is covering its basis by starting its free-coffee-promo on the American celebration of caffeine and continuing into (and passed) Canada’s day to give thanks to the mighty coffee bean.
And as you’ve no doubt already surmised, Tim Hortons Coffee Day promotion is a thinly-veiled effort to get you to download the coffee chain’s app.
Not that the plan won’t work, because free coffee isn’t something one turns down, especially in the morning.
Nothing says "I'm Canadian" like holding a cup of Tim Hortons coffee in your hand, and maybe a box of Timbits.
But one couple on the east coast decided to take things to the next level by having the most Canadian wedding ever inside of a Tim Hortons.
Tom and Meranda Robicheau from Belleville, Nova Scotia had their first date at a Tim Hortons, reports CBC.
After two years of dating, the pair decided to tie the knot. So what better place to hold the ceremony, and create a nice sense of circularity, than inside Canada’s favourite coffee chain?
The newly christened Robicheau’s were married on September 16th at a Tim Hortons location in Yarmouth, N.S., where Meranda actually works as a baker.
Getting the venue secured wasn’t too hard, then, as Meranda already new the management. Plus, all of Meranda’s coworkers got to attend the wedding, too.
As did many customers. This Tim Hortons shares space with a Wendy’s, which was in service while the ceremony was going on. So while a couple was united in holy matrimony on one side, hungry patrons ordered burgers on the other. Obviously there were perplexed looks from one side to the other.
To make things even more uber Canadian, the wedding ceremony had some added Tim Hortons flair, as a coffee cup mascot posed with the wedding party.
And when the couple rode off after the festivities were finished, Tim Hortons coffee cups followed them, decorated onto the car.
Admittedly a little bit strange (and definitely not for everyone) you have to hand it to this couple. Casting aside standard wedding traditions and practices, the Robicheaus decided to make their ceremony unique and reflective of their relationship.
Getting married inside of a Tim Hortons may not be for everybody, but it was perfect for them, which is what every wedding should be about.
So kudos to the Robicheaus for being themselves and having the most Canadian wedding, ever.
