1. For years, everyone was convinced the coffee was so addicting because it contained MSG.

But no. It’s just pixie dust, maybe?

2. Timbits aren’t Canada’s answer to "doughnut holes.” They’re freaking Timbits, and they are a way of life up here!

3. We all got a little too freaked when we heard that the new owners (Burger King) were going to stop selling Timbits.

Luckily, it was just a vicious rumor.

4. There can be five Tim Hortons in a single small town, and there is still a long line at the drive-thru of each of them.

5. Every Canadian has a specific order they always get at Tim Hortons.

Even if they don’t go very often.

6. So yeah, we pretty much go all of the time.

"OMG TIM HORTONS!" "OMG YES!"

7. You can buy coffee for everyone in your office and it still costs less than Starbucks.

8. Roll Up The Rim To Win is a huge deal.

9. Nothing hurts more than throwing away your cup and realizing later that you forgot to roll up the damn rim.

The struggle is real.

10. At least five times a day during the promotion, you’ll hear somebody try to roll the Rs in "Rrrrrrroll up the rrrrrrrrim."

More like roll your EYES, amiright?

11. Somebody even invented a little gadget to make all that rim-rolling easier.

12. It’s not called a “Café & Bake Shop” in Canada. This ain’t Cake Boss, guys — we’re not fancy

It’s just “Tims” or “Timmies" up here.

13. You might think you’re being healthy by choosing a muffin, but they have more calories than the doughnuts.

Make the heart-smart choice, and order a filled Canadian Maple like a good canuck.
