Before I had kids, I never understood why people would wait in a drive-thru line up when it was long at Tim Hortons. I would just park and run in to grab a coffee and be back on the road in no time. But is the people who don’t have kids that know everything don’t they. After my oldest was born, it was easy to say ok the line isn’t very long I will wait. But anything longer than a few cars, and I would still just park and go in, taking one kid into the restaurant for a quick trip is no big deal.
Fast forward 4 more years, and now that I am a Mom of 3 young ones, there is no amount of cars that is going to get me to park and run in for my Tim Hortons coffee! Getting kids in and out of car seats should be an Olympic sport. It is well worth the wait in a drive-thru line to get my caffeine fix when I need it.
There are some days, usually after being woken up every hour by the baby and dealing with a toddler meltdown on the way to daycare that the only way I know I can get through the day is with a stop at “Timmies”. Besides Tim Hortons bagels and donuts keep excited mouths quiet for a few minutes so Mom can take a little break.
I think the arrival of the Dark Roast was a genius idea! I know there are days when you need something a little bolder and stronger to get through the day and make it to bedtime. Did you know the Dark Roast is now a year old? And we like to celebrate birthdays in style at Little Miss Kate! Tim Horton’s Dark Roast has sold over 100 million cups sold across the country, it is a hit with Canadians! The Dark Roast is pretty special afterall, it is the first time Tim Hortons history that they have offered an alternative blend of coffee in addition to the Original Premium Blend.
We are not the only ones celebrating this milestone. Tim Hortons fans can share their love of Dark Roast on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #TimsDark. And make sure you share often as Tim Hortons will be randomly surprising fans with Tim Cards until Tuesday, September 22!
