Holiday Hot Smoothies at Tim’s: Another Treat
Since there are about 14 of these venerable establishments in
Kingston (Tim’s that is) it’s entirely likely that you may find
yourself near one with a hankering for a hot smoothee.
First off- don’t do it. Nothing that is hot should be thick like a
smoothee. This drink, thank goodness, is more of a ‘frothee’, but it’s
still too thick. It is likely that the thing is full of hydrogenated

The flavour- specifically of the ‘holiday spice’ variety- is
painfully artificial, and probably comes from the same supplier that
makes flavourings for those crappy egg nog candy canes. The hazelnut
smoothee is a little better, but it’s still doubtful that a real nut
ever came near one of those things.
In short, the Holiday Spice Hot Smoothie is not all it’s cracked up
to be- if it ever was. Better stick to what Tim Hortons is known for:
