Last summer when we were camping in the US, Saturday morning we headed to the closest Tim Hortons. We put our orders in and I asked for what I always order, an XL Coffee with 2 milks and 2 sugars.
They handed me the biggest cup I had ever seen! It was bigger than the XLs in Canada!
I said to the barista — “We need cups this size in Canada!”
Here is the announcement from Tim Hortons….
Tim Hortons announced it will be brewing its biggest cup yet, with this month’s introduction of a brand new extra large cup.
To accommodate the brand new cup, the names of the other hot cup sizes have shifted: the original small is now extra small, the medium is now small and so forth. The change in names of the hot cup sizes will apply to all hot beverages – guests will still receive the same amount of coffee for the same price, only the name of the size has changed.
“We tested the names of the new hot cup sizes with our guests and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Our guests also told us that they love our small eight-ounce cup, so we will continue to offer that size,” said Dave McKay, Director of Brand Marketing for Beverages, Tim Hortons. “By shifting the sizes, we’re able to provide coffee lovers with a full range of five size options: from extra small, all the way up to the new extra large.”
This press release was sent to me from a PR company working on behalf of Tim Hortons. I posted it because I love Tim Hortons and am very excited about the new cup sizes. I had been tweeting about this before they emailed me the press release!
