You may have noticed the sharp rise in coffee cups littering our streets, which can only mean one thing: it’s Roll Up The Rim time at Tim Hortons once again. When Torontoist was young and starry-eyed, we used to dream of unrolling our cup and finding that we had won a car or a boat or some awesome camping gear. (What ever happened to that prize anyway? It was always the best one.) After years of winning nothing but the occasional muffin and coffee, we can’t help but feel rage every time we roll up that annoyingly pompous “Please Try Again.”
From next Monday, March 3 until Sunday, March 9, it’ll be better to be a loser. Country Style, fresh off of a chain-wide re-launch and re-branding as a classier place to get your cheap coffee and pastries, is offering all customers a free medium coffee in exchange for a “Please Try Again” cup tab from Timmy’s. Coffee is more delicious when it’s free, and even more delicious when getting it lets you vent your frustration. It’s about time that losers got to win.
