Tim Hortons' "Smile Cookie" campaign is officially underway in Canada!
The event is actually both a great marketing ploy and fun way to be charitable.
The proceeds for all smile cookie sales go to local charities. Meanwhile, Tim Hortons benefits from the social media buzz generated by people publicizing their charity and talking photos with the adorable treats.
TL;DR The Tim Hortons "Smile Cookie" campaign is a wonderful charitable effort. But sometimes it doesn't go exactly as planned. This is a list of the most messed up smile cookies.
But sometimes those photo-ops can go awry.
The cookies are so popular that sometimes an overburdened Tim Hortons worker hastily assembling frosting smiles for ravenous customers can make some embarrassing mistakes.
Fortunately for consumers (and Tims Hortons) the results can sometimes be hilarious. Indeed, it's the messed up smile cookies that often attract the most social media attention.
Below we've compiled some of the funniest smile cookies fails from Canadians on Twitter.
