WEEKEND IN PICTURES
Too bad it tastes like utter shite.
Paul and I were walking home from dinner last night when I noticed that our local Spar was advertising that they now sold Tim Hortons coffee. I screamed and ran into the store to try some...and then noticed the dry and sad-looking British versions of my beloved Tim Hortons donuts. However, the coffee was what I was mainly interested in.
Alas I'm sad to report that the coffee doesn't taste anything like the Tim Hortons coffee in Canada; it tastes too acidic and of course, they offer milk - NOT CREAM - for your double-double (sacrilegious)!
It's a sad imitation of the real and glorious Tim Hortons that I know and love. Apparently it's not even a "real" Timmy's either. Rather, Tim Hortons has licensed out its brand to Cuisine de France in Ireland and the UK.
In the end, it just feels like a cruel joke; so close and yet, so far from the genuine and decent stuff! Why, Tim Hortons, why? Why not just open a damn store over here already!?
See that look on my face? That's the same face I pulled when I saw Spar advertising that they sold "Tim Hortons coffee".
Friday night, Paul and I had an amazing dinner at Rococo in Glasgow. I won a free dinner for two and seriously dudes? if you have $200 to drop on a dinner, I HIGHLY recommend Rococo.
