Tim Horton's free iced coffee today!
right now 'til 5p.m.
It is FULL of sugar. I rarely eat sugar, but if I do, I'll pay the cost of a small sorbet at Havre aux glaces (closest Tim's to me is just opposite the market). Probably less sugar than that iced "coffee"...
Very sweet but it was nice to have while watching all the excitment with the firetrucks at Guy and de Maisoneuve on their way to Dr Penfield.
It is sweet and you get as much of a kick from the sugar as caffeine. However, coffee's not a taste I ever acquired; its bitter taste churns my stomach and the caffeine sends my heart into palpitations. I actually threw up from it on occasion back in my university days when I tried convincing (very briefly) myself it was the 'sophisticated' thing to drink.
Long way of saying, I don't mind Tim's iced coffee or cap at all - that and the canned iced coffee in Chinatown is the only way I'll imbibe the poison.
(of course, I threw up many more times from booze in the years prior to my coffee flirtation and somehow soldiered on, hahaha)
