Tim Hortons Test Marketing A Bigger Size XL & Elimination Of The Current Small Cup Size, Canadians Think It’s “American Style”

August 31, 2011 2 comments

Since August 29th, some Tim Hortons locations in Kingston, Ontario and Sudbury, Ontario have changed up the sizing of their cups eliminating what is currently referred to as “Small” and re-dubbing all cup sizes down a notch. What is still a “Medium” at every other Tim Hortons in Canada is now a “Small” and so on. Because this change would otherwise also eliminate the size of Extra Large (XL), Tim Hortons has also introduced to these test locations a new, bigger extra large cup which comes in at 24 oz (which translates to 710 mL [millilitres] or, to be exact, 709.76471 mL). I was alerted to this change via my friend, Valerie @ValTorontoGal‘s blog post “Some Bits and Bites to Get You Through Hump Day.”

I found this article in the National Post which has this awesome graphic explaining the new sizes:

Tim Hortons USA Vs Tim Hortons Canada – It’s The Little Differences

This is a post I am writing after my road trip to the Syracuse, NY area – as I mentioned yesterday, I was there for the weekend. While in Syracuse I, being a Tim Hortons coffee drinker in Toronto (although I do frequent many other coffee houses, Tim Hortons is a good, simple go-to) I was delighted to find that there was one relatively close to our hotel in Syracuse, NY. But, as The Simpsons mentioned when they ripped off Pulp Fiction, it’s the little differences when you go to a popular place in a different country (or in The Simpsons’ case, city).

As an example of what I mean by this check out this picture of me below.

If you zoom it in to full size of the picture you will see that: Read more…
