Correct me if I'm wrong but I noticed that prices at Tim Horton's increased during the Roll up the Rim contest. It's as if customers think, "Who cares? I want my roll up cup!" That's sneaky for Timmy's.

I won't complain about price increases because of inflation. I just find it intriguing that prices go up during the contest.

Not surprising, considering what the prices for flour, sugar, milk, coffee, etc are doing.

Tim's coffee is cold. Starbuck's doesn't even grind their own beans, and they're overpriced to boot. The Jamaica Blue I grind fresh & brew in my french press every morning is exponentially tastier than any commercial swill. But I LOVE those little Tim Horton's sausage, egg & cheese breakfast sandwiches! Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, tasty!
