[Tim Hortons] Tim Hortons Smile Cookies - $1 (Sep 19-25, 100% goes to charity)

The Tim Hortons Smile Cookies ($1 ea) are back for 2022 (Sep 19-25) with 100% of the proceeds going to local charities.

My local Tim's prices the individual regular cookies at $1.29, so a bit of a discount in that respect, plus the $1 goes to support charities.

Not a bad way to solve a sweet tooth craving next week...

An SM POST circulated widely a week or two ago revealing that in many cases, Tim Hortons franchise owners ask High School volunteers looking for hours or "strongly encourage" their employees to take unpaid time to make these cookies.

Similar to Bell Let's Talk...up to you as an RFDer to support the corporate charity machine you deem worthy. Not really a Hot Deal.

Do they make them in the store? I thought all of the baked goods are made off site.

This. Such a scummy thing to do. It shows you how much they actually support charity when their answer to charity is to ask for ppl to work for free.

Tim hortons is in essences the same as every scumbag multinational that parades itself as a canadian staple. There is no place in my life for million- billion dollar company tax right offs in my name.

Lol. My Tims bumped these to 1.29 even though the screen behind them is saying a dollar.

Maybe they couldn't find anyone to give them free labour too decorate the cookies so they had to pay people and are recouping the cost? Face With Tears Of Joy

They tasted better than in previous years, less stiff cookie.

The order screen showed $1.29 per cookie, but I was charged $6 total for 6 cookies.

No taxes on orders of 6 or more cookies, so it made sense to order 6.

Maybe the employee didn't know there was a promo price, and punched in regular cookie, resulting in $1.29?

Depends how you define made?

Many locations receive the different items frozen and then the location bakes them.

Even something like Old Fashion Plain donuts, which you may think is fried, is actually received frozen and baked in store.

Fixed that for you. Par baked / flash frozen offsite then reheated in a steam oven locally.

The icing or glaze is put on at the store, but other than that, it's thaw and serve. Same with donuts, muffins etc.

"Always fresh" whereby fresh means not rotten I guess.

Increased to $2 in Hamilton, apparently because food banks are empty, was $1 each on Monday. I’ll probably just donate directly to food banks instead of taking part in this now.

American owned company (most people already know this). I guess they get co-op students from highschools to make the cookies. Apparently they lose a bunch of money when they have this charity, so whatever lol. Their coffee is still horrible compared to what it used to be.

I paid $2 each. $2.30 with tax.

Claiming to support charity is so slimy it's more like Tim's is the charity here...

Not for a few years.

Tim Hortons is owned by Restaurant Brands International (RBI), a Canadian-American multinational fast food holding company with global head office in Toronto
