5 Hilarious Tim Hortons RRRoll Up the Rim to Win Prizes from the Past

The “it” prizes of each year are pretty hilarious and definitely a sign of the times. Check out these hilarious RRRoll up the Rim to Win Prizes from the past.

With a location kitty-corner to the StyleDemocracy office, it’s obvious to say Tim Hortons is our go-to for coffee breaks. And when RRRoll Up the Rim comes around, the prize-boasting game gives us a little more incentive to amp up our caffeine intake.

As true Canadians know, the annual contest gives individuals the chance to win an amazing roster of goods. Up for grabs this year are Honda Civics Coupe EX-T, LG 4K UHD Smart TVs, $5000 prepaid CIBC gift cards, $100 TimCards, coffee, donuts, and wedges.

But RRRoll Up the Rim prizes weren’t always so extravagant. In fact, when the contest first began back in 1986, all you could win was a large coffee or 20 Timbits. We’re not complaining – we love a good Timbit – but over time, Tim Hortons has definitely stepped up their giveaway game.

Each year, Tim Hortons offers the “it” prize of the moment, and some of the prizes are hilarious. They’re definitely a sign of the times and boy oh boy, has technology changed.

Check out some of the prizes Canadians went nuts for each year below. They’re sure to make you giggle.
