My friend was in line and a teenager (probably 14-15) won a matrix, right in front of her!
Sorry don't know the cup size but this was in Timmons, ON.

Unfortunately, so many people buy a handful of coffees and instantly assume that it's a large enough sample size to make a statistically significant point of view.

QUESTION: Are the winning vehicles available to be found in ALL size cups? I drink XL and in the past contests it used to be listed in the rules that no vehicles were in that sized cup (so I bought a different size during the contest) however I don't see this breakdown in the rules now.

Actually thanks for finding this, it actually shows proof that there is no correlation... or very minor correlation between cup sizes and prizes... well at least for large prizes.
When you do the math, you will see that when you add all prizes and cups sizes, the probability of winning are as follows:
M --> 0.00426
L --> 0.00427
LX --> 0.00428
Variance is so minor that really cup size has little to no bearing on odds of winning. Now as for the caveats, this is based on 2006 data... 2011 can be very different and those odds only reflect large prizes. Food prizes make up the vast majority of prizes.
