$15.... yeah, PASS! Paying $15 to spend more money once on the inside yet they have close to two dozens of sponsors?
This is why I did not go to taste of Toronto...which is the biggest money grab piece of crap out there.

Any Freebies this year to look out for?

One year I think they were giving out samples of Dr.Oetkers pizza and coupons. I have not been in awhile so I dunno if they still give stuff out.
Stacy's chips is back! It's a tiny free bag, but it's the thought that counts right?
(Comes with free Hummus, Guacamole, and salsa.)
I also saw Astro, but the line was way to long for me to care.
Nature's path is handing out bars-I think they're cereal bars. (not sure)

I don't see Dr. Oetker! I'm surprised! What a great place to let people know that McCain frozen Pizzas are now Dr. Oetker...

Thanks for the contributions! The Dr. Oetker freebie was a few years back so I dunno about that. Will have to keep out a look for the freebies you mentioned! Any more anyone?
I am a Public mobile customer. Love them!

There are certainly lots of things available at the $5 price-point but to say "$5" and leave it at that is an over generalization.
I went the last 2 years and wrote detailed write-ups of my experiences, complete with prices of the foods we bought (2014 in [post=19489249]Post #127[/post], 2013 in [post=17259122]Post #85[/post]).

Prices we paid then for various items: $1/piece, $5 for 3, $5ea, $3ea, $4/doz, $2ea, $5 for 2, $1ea, $1 for 4, $3ea, $3ea, $2 for 3, $4/doz, $3ea.

Go with friends/family, buy and split where possible and in my experience you'll likely to spend roughly $13-15 each to sample 6-9 different foods/drinks and be satisfactorily stuffed.

I was actually shocked to see Corn on the Cob priced @ $4 at a few TOD locations.
Most other times it's only $3, and there are a few vendors @ TOD still offering corn on the cob for $3,
with at least one place offering the corn on the cob for only $2.50!! (and yes, that IS inside the actual TOD, not just outside)

Indeed. It's usually $5 and usually the female partner that wants one. The balling male partner buys one, and proceeds to share it/snag a bite, but is lucky if he even gets one in, before she devours it all.lol

It's great that gyros remain at $5 year after year at the TOD.

I hardly see spinach pies and have not seen coconut cake in years.

Very true!
What about stuffed peppers? I don't recall seeing any this year...green or red!

I've duly noted that there are several Greek restaurants no longer in business this year.
Two or 3 with a for lease sign in the window and one with a sign that now reads "Absolute bakery opening soon".
I honestly do not know if that will be a Greek bakery, or just a run of the mill every day bakery...

I recalled $2 , $3 was the general consensus way back when

I guess $2 a bottle water is the norm now. Crazy!

There is a convenience store selling water for 50 cents, but only one.
The majority of places are selling water for $1
There are a few charging $2 for their water. I hope they run into overstock issues! They deserve it!

We went yesterday and paid $7 for a beef and lamb mixed gyro :eek: :o

Saw some small pies: spinach, cheese and custard for $2.50 each.

I honestly do not know if this was just a one day thing (Saturday) or if they will also be doing this on Sunday:

FREE 500ml bottle of water just outside the Canadian Tire Express. They are promoting Jumpstart. :arrow: http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/
