I think alll that cream negates the benefits of the sweetner.

Two coffees=1 donut (which I gave away).  I'm hoping for an iPod!

You know they use 18% don't you?

I weaned myself from 2 cream to 1 cream and 1 milk (comes to 10% cream) and finally to 2 milk.

I wonder if we could send our winning rims for coffees, doughnuts, cookies etc to the boy and girls in KAF?  Would the Timmies there accept them? If they will, and we can arrange it, would you guys send over your rim winnings?

What about the time lag on the mail?  They might not get the winners until after the contest expiry.  On another note - eventually, I'd guess every regular drinker (of Timmie Ho's) should eventually get at least a fat pill and a coffee... so...

... given the high percentage of service personnel who consume Timmie Ho's, and the large number of service personnel on this site - I would expect, given the law of large numbers and chaos theory their due - that someone who is a member here should win one of the larger prizes.  I wait with abated breath...

Monday, on my way to work I grabbed a tea and yes I got the roll up the rim too  ;D told me to play again though  :( I never had much luck winning on those. But yes, to say it is a sign of "Spring" that definately works for me because I am ready for it! Just the thought of that makes me glad!

It's a shame they have to charge anything at all to those amazing folks serving our country "over there" as far as I'm concerned!  Thank you RN PRN for what you do (did).

They do accept Tim Horton's Gift Certificates though. I sent hubby and his section over some for Christmas...each got $5...two free coffee's...they did appreciate that!!  Also, my hometown (Ingersoll, ON), banded together to raise enough Timmie's GC for each guy to get $10. Hubby got that when he finally came back in camp.

Sig_Des Rolll up Sitrep:

x2 Tim's coffee's per day since Monday...

Each time, I won a Ressayez...That's a Toyota, right?

Honestly, the only thing I've ever won with the Roll-up the rim is a bagel. And I'm not a bagel person...

Don't feel bad about this Sig_Des, because there are some of us (myself included) who are not able to win due to the fact that a member of my direct family is an employee of Tims.  :crybaby:
