They changed their cup size to match McDonald's. Instead of adding a XXL, you can now go to Timmies or McDicks and use the same word to actually get the same cup.

i had one this morning. usually the old XL didnt fill me up. I was full after this one.

besides, from a marketing point of view, its easier for the consumer to say XL, not XXL. makes sense to move them up in size without actually adding a new one.

It's about time. Every time I go to Timmy's I always have to remember to "size up" because their cups are so small compared to everyone else's. Timmy's hot chocolate is so good!

cream contains so much fat. i made the switch to milk a couple of years ago; now cream tastes disgusting haha.

if you really want to be healthy, you'll drink your coffee black. otherwise, reducing the sugar and switching to milk helps a lot.

I personally use 2 milk, 1 sugar. sometimes when they mess up and give me no sugar i'm fine with it too.

I used to add milk & sugar to my coffee. I started drinking black when my boss would bring me coffee and not add anything to it, and I was too lazy to go and add it.

Now I pretty much only drink black. I might add a little bit of honey on the weekend, or some Bailey's when I'm on vacation.

But I like my black coffee strong, Tim Horton's coffee is way too weak for me.

THIS is exactly what Tim Horton's management wants:

Is it just me or did they just add "Cafe & Bake Shop" to their slogan along with the new sizes?

I just saw a commercial that said, "Tim Horton's Cafe and Bake Shop" and I noticed it on the new cup...hmmm...they trying to overhaul their image?

I like this idea. I don't mind having the option to pay a bit more to get more coffee.

I'm not a regular but I can see how the new sizes can confuse ppl. I'll order xs from now on.

Just got XL today. Think cup size is roughly about the same size as McD's Large.
Not sure... I don't have a McD cup to compare with.

But the price is $2.20 (tax included).
