So who's got the XL runs from the new slurpy sized XL coffee?

The new XL isn't even that much more compaired to a L. There is no point buying it cause it's skinnier.

Its 4oz bigger, or 20% bigger. I'd say that's a lot more Timmies shits in the morning.

LoL... all the existing sizes are still there, just that they got moved down the scale of sizes.

Old XL became L
Old L became M
Old M became S
Old S became XS

smart in the sense that ppl like me who dont go there much will say "medium" or "small" by default and will now pay more than they wouldve before without really realizing it

also makes sense since their sizes were damn small compared to other chains...altho they are also way cheaper and i kinda liked that

Prices are still the same. you're merely getting more cup for the samz price.

Changed today and I have some potentially bad news...

TL/DR - they pretty much just introduced a new size for $2.20 and renamed them

Previous Prices (taxes in):
XL - $1.95
L - $1.78
M - $1.50
S - $1.34

New Prices in effect (taxes in):
XL - $2.20
L - $1.95
M - $1.78
S - $1.50
XS - $1.34

I wish I developed the taste for coffee. Almost 27 and still don't like it. Although I do love the smell of coffee beans >_<

Doesn't that mean, that nothing really changed. Like if I pay for a medium coffee, it won't be exactly $1.50 anymore.

So even though sizes became "bigger", prices are the same

Welcome to the world of marketing

They basically want customers to come in more often, as they "think" they are getting a better deal, since a) the cups are now larger, or b) they can pay one size cup smaller..to get what they normally would have received.

But at the end of the day, its still the same. You didn't think Tim Hortons would lower their income now, would you?

So now you order a small coffee, an you'll get the exact same amount of coffee you've always been getting, for the exact same price of $1.50.

Could they have kept all the existing sizes the same and called the new one XXL? I'm sure they could have... but I guess their marketing team decided doing it this way will bring in more money.

I think they're banking on people just ordering a set size, no matter how much content there actually is. If someone usually orders medium stuff, they'll still order a medium now.
