If you've been following me on social media for a while, I have ranted before about how terrible Tim Hortons is.  Personally, I think their coffee tastes like a ladle of public toilet water with extra "brown" added.  Their coffee is so bad that most people who go there have to load it up with tons of cream and sugar (two servings of each, in most cases) just to be able to drink it.  People think THIS is coffee.

The reason I bring this up is that in my opinion the "double-double" Tim Hortons coffee is one of the big contributors to type 2 diabetes in Canada.  Some people drink three or four (maybe more?) of these "coffees" a day.

Here's some real sh*t for you:

Here is the nutritional content of a large double-double from Tim Hortons:

  • Calories: 264
  • Fat: 14g
  • Saturated Fat: 8g
  • Sugar: 30g

Now just for fun, let's compare these numbers to a Mars Bar:

  • Calories: 229
  • Fat: 8.7g
  • Saturated Fat: 4.2g
  • Sugar: 30g

So, if you're having three or four double-double's in a day, that is worse than eating three or four Mars Bars.  Now I'm not suggesting you go out and eat Mars Bars instead (that would almost be as stupid as paying money to drink sh*tty coffee)

Stop paying to get diabetes and do yourself a favour.  Go to a Starbucks or Bridgehead and get a decent coffee and put a bit of milk in it.  Here's the nutritional value for that:

  • Calories: 8
  • Fat: 0.3g
  • Saturated Fat: 0g
  • Sugar: less than 1g
