It sure was a scorcher the past few days here in Vancouver. I guess I shouldn’t complain because it’s still less than 30 Celsius. By this time tomorrow, am gonna be in Vegas which hit 47 Celsius!! Gosh! I sure picked a lousy time to be in Vegas. What more, am gonna drive thru the Death Valley from Vegas to Yosemite. I am having second thoughts of that right now.
Back to Vancouver, it’s so freaking hot, we decided to pop over to Timmy Ho for a cup of our favourite iced cap. We went to the one on No 3 Road in Richmond. As you can see below, the Skytrain Canada line construction had reached the Aberdeen station now. Traffic had been a nightmare nowadays here.
Did you know that there are more Tim Hortons’ outlets in Canada than Mickey D? Yup, kind of hard to believe it but it’s true. I believe that McD still had more outlets here in BC but in the east, Timmy Ho reign supreme.
We simply love Timmy Ho’s Iced Cap … more than the other iced cappuccino from other places like Starbucks, and Second Cup. This came in three sizes.
They had a new iced cap on the menu. The Iced Cap Supreme is available in four flavours: Butter Caramel, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and new Strawberry Shortcake. I chose the Butter Caramel.
I remember reading in the papers comparing Tim Hortons’ Iced Cap with Starbuck’s Frap, Dairy Queen’s Chillate and 7-Eleven’s Slurpucino … and Tim Hortons’ won hands down in number of calories. I can’t recall exactly what it was but it seems something like 1000 … give or take 500. 🙂
Ohhh … Tim Hortons also have the prettiest looking Strawberry Tarts.
I dunno what it’s called but they do have some kind of cream in it. What is it called? Venetian cream? Anyway, it’s too rich for my taste but Suanne absolutely digs these stuff.
We’ll be traveling tomorrow and we’ll blog when only we get the chance. But stayed tuned for our trip report shortly … it’ll be Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe/Reno. I think you all will enjoy reading it. BTW, thanks for all the comments/tips that some of you left on this blog … more tips appreciated.
I’ve been working like a dog the past few weeks and so badly need a break from all the madness. He he he … this morning I received an alert on my cell on a Production issue and guess what … I don’t have to respond to that sort of stuff for the next two weeks!
I so look forward to this trip!!
