The Mrs and myself found ourseleves in a BAD TIMS.

The Coffee was old and stale, the hot Chocolate was hot, I have had better products from (gasp) McDonalds. Driving away we through out the Hot drinks I can not call them by their real names as they were fake or AKA Mocka, & Hot Chocolate.

So if you ever find your self in Bay City Mi. near Wilder & M-13 just keep going that is not a Tims, its an imposter.

You must be traumatized. I am so sorry you had to experience that.

Mmmm....real Tims.

I still haven't tried the NY Tims, as I'm skeptical -- anyone around these parts tried one?

I've bought hot chocolate, coffee, and donuts from that very Tim Hortons and had no problem; all were delicious. That was about 3 years ago, though, and things may have changed.

____ MMKK, with that Tim's being the second closest to where we live, of course the other one is the opposite direction. When in Bay City we often stopped there, the last three stops have each been worse than the last. The young lady taking the order, and changing money was not interested in waiting on customers, The Mrs Mocha tasted watered down (weak) My Hot Chocolate tasted weaker.

____ The young man that got our food was friendlier and nice, the Chilli was fair, it has been better. The place had not been bussed in a while, we had to look for a unused table.

____ Because it seems that this Tims is in a downward sprial I wrote the Tims Website a flaming account of our visit.

The one in Penn Station? Yep. They had a really good blueberry frosted donut.

____ TheMoMan, again. Tim Hortons, Corp. Called got the wife, she filled them in, and pointed out that we threw out our hot drinks. We were promised that a secret shopper would be sent to that location.

____ I hope that that location gets its act together.

Myehhh... I just don't see what all the fuss is about. In my day, Tim Hortons was a wee handful of doughnut places in the Hamilton area -- I come back some years later and it has spread like a zombie plague. (Just substitute the words "double-double" for "brains!" and you'll have a fair idea of what it's like here.) This franchise has done something quite remarkable -- it's has turned a two-bit doughnut store into a national cult. The weird part is that -- IT AIN"T THAT GOOD!!! Okay, the coffee's cheap, and they're everywhere, but they're also ALWAYS FULL TO THE BRIM with rednecks who seem to ingest no other food products. Their doughnuts suck. Dunkin' Donuts are superior in every way. But I guess that's not the point -- when you buy Tim Hortons, you're buying into a lifestyle -- one that consists of bacon, beer, moose and chicken fingers. You're propagating the Northern myth. It's all hype. Remember Billy Bob Thornton's words: Canada is like mashed potatoes without the gravy. :-)

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

____ Spungo, here in our neck of the woods, there are no Donut shops, no cop hang outs. Tims has a reasonable Chilli, not to bad Bagels, and usually good hot chocolate. So if you go in expecting that and get treated rudely , poor quality on the items, you get the feeling of being ripped off.
