    Default Tim Horton's iced cappuccino

    How the hell do they make this thing? I've seen the workers make it and they don't seem to use ice cubes crushed with blender like say how Starbucks and the like make their Frappuccino. All I see is they put some kinda coffee syrup and milk together then put the cup uder a machine with a nozzle and kinda mix it and voila, it comes out semi slushy. Are they using like liquid nitrogen or something to freeze the liquid?



    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    if you've ever seen margarita mix machines i think it is the same idea that there is ice churning around in the machine but you just can't see it.

    Have you ever tried the "Cappuccino Blast" at Baskin Robbins..? Oh, lord, it's even better than Tim's Iced Cap.

    Man i thought I was the only one who drank those. Usually after every 2 weeks, I allow myself to a large Ice Capp with about 4 of there cinnamon bums (w/ icing). Holy heaven that shit is good.

    Now that the weather is cold, I'm liking their hot smoothies... The flavours they have are raspberry, orange, caramel and hazelnut I think.

    Has anyone tried one? They are rather sweet compared to flavoured steamed milk from other coffee places.

    I'm just wondering if they are using real milk in this...I wouldn't want any powder creamer type of thing in it... I don't think they actually steam real milk there.

    A hot smoothie sounds very unappetizing to me.

    I love Tim's Iced Caps...I am from Rochester NY and get several everytime I am home. The only thing second to it is Baskin Robbins Cappuccino Blast.

    Everyone know the joke about Tim Bits? If you don't I can't say, it is too much in bad taste. Forget I mentioned it.

    It's not really smoothie-like where it has blended fruits n things. It's more like just flavoured steamed milk.

    Tim Hortons always makes me laugh when I stop in. Where else can you get a cup of soup, a cup of coffee and two doughnuts of your choice as a lunch value meal. Love Tim Hortons!

    Never heard it. Now you've made me curious.

    I'll trade you this Tim's joke for it!

    A young woman goes into a Tim Horton's and buys a coffee. She gets it in a "roll up the rim to win" cup.
    She carefully rolls up the rim and starts to shout "I won a motor home! I won a motor home!"
    The manager goes over to the woman and says, "Miss, that's impossible, we don't have any prizes like that."
    She continues to shout, "I won a motor home! I won a motor home!"
    The manager gently takes the cup from her hands and rolls up the rim.
    It reads...win a bagel.

    Ok I can't tell you the joke EXACTLY, but here is a big hint:

    Look up Tim Horton-some don't know who he was, and he played hockey for a number of years before his death involving a car accident.

    There is a little joke about that and "Tims Bits". I warned you, it was not in good taste, I should have never said anything, or deleted the post...

    LMAO at the joke from you though!
