Happy Canada Day! As a proud Canadian, I feel I have a duty to express my beef about a product that has a local reputation for its inherent Canadianness. But first, a quote from the propaganda video featured below:
There is a symbol that every Canadian soldier recognizes, & it always leads to something good.
‘Flavour shots’ is a relatively new concept for Timmy’s. It was never necessary – the coffee was unparalleled. It had the reputation of being the franchise to buy into if you wanted a license to print money.
After a few years of dissatisfaction, I have an increasing number of friends who are migrating away from our once-beloved Tim Horton’s, not all of it due to taste. My partner’s brother asked a Tim Horton’s representative what happened, & the reply he received was ‘nothing has changed.’ The implication is that we the consumer has the problem. Nicely done, spokesperson; your coffee doesn’t taste bad, our tongues simply sense it wrong.
I can barely believe that, to get a decent cuppa joe from a corporate entity, we have to go through this notorious frankenfood-schilling animal rights abuser. That’s why I make mine at home for about seventeen cents.
