If you're looking for something insanely Canadian for the day, we've found it. Tim Hortons, BlackBerry and the Toronto Maple Leafs have teamed up to help promote the TimmyMe app which allows you to pay for your purchases at Tim Hortons using your BlackBerry 10 device.

On hand for the occasion was Joffrey Lupul, alternate captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs who demoed the app for everyone by purchasing some coffee and likely some of those fancy BlackBerry and Toronto Maple Leaf donuts.

Sadly, I don't think the donuts will end up being available everywhere - only in Toronto for now. The TimmyMe app works at most locations though, so there's that.

Lmao about maple leaf donuts fill with boston's cream.

Better android than android. The future is black....

Doughtt

I haven't seen those donuts yet and I live in kitchener / waterloo....i would totally buy one too despite being on a diet!

Z10 still going strong!!!

I think that picture of the player is putting him in quite a bit of heat with wifey for chatting up that girl.

The BB donut probably has some blackberry jelly filling, but I don't think there exists such thing as failure jelly for the other donut...

BillyBreathes

You mean, 8-1-1 in their last 10 type of failure?? #GoLeafsGo!

feldmen01

More like the 46 year long drought between championships kind of failure... At least they have that record!

BillyBreathes

Touché.

For seriously though, us Leafs fans have a short memory. We prefer not to live in the past, because it causes so much pain and despair. So if someone says, "Remember the last 10 minutes of Game 7 vs The Bruins last year?", I can comfortably say, "No. No, I don't." Plus, Rob Ford takes some of the focus off when we have a losing streak. He's good like that.

Didn't take long for the leaf bashing to start lol do I sense a bitter sens fan?

At least they bring the most money in nhl

Bolderholder

Yeah, I'm afraid game 7 still stings...real bad. That one definitely left a mark.

axeman1000

But Boston s game seven choke in the cup final stings worse I bet lol. That was a collapse that stunk worst than the leafs.

Hate solves nothing, Respect gains everything!

JR A

Well if there's something that BBRY and the Leafs have in common it's that they haven't had a big win for a long time...

KDB84

I love both BlackBerry and the Leafs...but that was just funny lol well done.

Posted from my Z10 via CB10

JR A

LOL, me too man. Well, not so much the Leafs. I'm a Jersey fan, living smack dab in the middle of Sharks territory. I'm less than 10 minutes from the Shark Tank... Just like BBRY, the Sharks always come *so* close every year, but somehow find a way to lose it right at the end...

xhead75

I'm a Leafs fan in Ottawa, 20 minutes from Canadian Tire Center. I am not alone here though. There are more Leafs fans here than Sens fans. ;-). You almost never see someone wearing Sens gear here. When the Leafs come to play here, the crowd is 50/50 and they chant GO SLEAFS GO!

Posted via CB10

Bolderholder

If miracles happen and the Leafs do get thru to the Cup finals and win....there will be parties on every major continent of the world celebrating. Mark my words. But no party will be bigger than the one right here in the big smoke. No place I'd rather be on that day.

Now that is the advertisement crap they should have been doing a year ago. Not Alicia Keys. Partner up. Whats bigger in Ontario than timmies and the leafs.

Posted via CB10

Bla1ze

Yup. I can hear people laughing at this 'advertisement' but it fits so incredibly well. They could have essentially changed it up for a broader market as well instead of leafs, make it NHL or just hockey in general.

sk8er_tor

I believe part of it is due to BlackBerry's sponsorship of MLSE. That's how they got the Leafs and Raptors apps, as well as BBMC.

AngryEdmontonian

Blackberry also purchased a block of ice side seats at Staples Center in LA 2 weeks ago for the Canucks vs Kings game. It was nice and rare to see.

Yes, as much as Toronto would like to think so, it is *NOT* the center of the universe. How about the rest of Canada?? I would pick some of the BB doughnuts up today using my TimmyMe app is they were available at our local Timmie's on the west coast.

Gord Cluthe

I agree with you completely. What's better than 2 iconic Canadian brands helping each other from coast to coast!

Now THAT is awesome!!

BlackBerryEnthusiast

Now if they could get the carries in the malls to actually PROMOTE. BlackBerry handsets, that would be great. What does one have to do to see a working model in the malls these days? For heaven's sake BlackBerry, get working models out in the malls of every model you have out.

You are definitely not helping yourself by not doing so....

Don't think BlackBerry has much to say about which models the carriers promo...

Posted via CB10

bigmac_4000

Ya but us leaf fans (yes I'll admit it) idolize that team for some reason. And BlackBerry being Ontario company, americans barely watch hockey, but nascar or NFL in America just like F1 in Europe. They don't have to spend a lot just get the logo on tv. Clothing.

conbrio29

I wonder if the logo part is edible? I really hope those donuts make it across Canada. Considering how many Canadians actually go to Tim Hortons, it would get a ton of exposure if it went across the nation. Although, the bean counters would have to probably make sure that they'd actually make some money off this item, so who knows if it will make its way here to western Canada.

Posted via the Z30 on CB10

Gord Cluthe

It was edible.. like a fondant. I didn't get to have one personally, but saw some employees enjoying them on their way out of the office today in Waterloo :)

GeneralHerzog

Only in the centre of the universe. Soooo typical.

I know each hockey city has their own donut (even the CFL cities have a team donut) why not make this a national promo. I know Trannah peeps think they're the only ones in the world, but there's a very vast country of happier people to the east and west of hogtown! Let's share the promo.

I love this idea, (save for the Leafs part) I would definately buy several BB donuts.

Medium Brown

BlackBerry is a major sponsor of MLSE so it's a natural fit.

Oh, and the Tims app is fantastic!

Posted with my awesome Z30

Beanzzz

It's a gross generalization to say that 'Trannah' peeps think they're the only ones in the world. I grew up in western Canada but have called Toronto my home for the better part of 7 years now, and from what I can see, it's the immigrants or the people like me who were not born and raised here that most appreciate this city and what it has to offer. Those people who think this city is the centre of the universe either don't get out much, can't see past their nose, or work on Bay Street with their $1000+ suits. The fact that the majority of Canada's population is concentrated in the 'Golden Horseshoe' area along Lake Ontario may account for some people's opinion that they're at the centre of something, but they mistakenly equate population density with importance. Toronto is not New York. Or London. The inferiority complex of many Torontonians is certainly evident, though, when attempts to compare it to those cities are made!
Personally I'm happy this city isn't like either one of those cities. New York is a dive, and London really isn't any better. To be fair, though.. I'm sure the citizens of those cities would say much the same about Toronto. The only truth in perception is that it is never objective. The other truth is, of course, that objectivity is merely an ideal and ideal situations are rarely if ever found in nature. (much like quantum entanglement, lol).

Apologies for my babbling. I felt I had to stick up for those of us who neither consider nor want Toronto to be the centre of the universe. Or Canada.

Have a competition to win a device at all Tim Hortons when you buy special edition BlackBerry donuts you are automatically enrolled in competition to win a Z10 package (with battery charger bundle)

Do the same with Dunkin Donuts if they're up for it.

In the UK Selfridges has the Z30 . Try to get those devices out there.

We used to be up that way a couple of times a year, and also upstate New York and New England on trips with my son's hockey teams. Timmy's is part of what I miss of those days! I had the Timmy's app but I couldn't stand being reminded of how far away I was from the nearest!

Love all the Toronto haters. Guess what. If I walk down to my local Tim's I'm not getting one either. Pipe down about us being the center of the Universe and all that crap.

At my local Tim Hortons, only one of three payment terminals works with the TimmyMe app, which means being prepared to wait for that terminal to become available (while awkwardly waving other customers past you - not terribly impressive when taking a client or your boss out for a quick morning cup) or to deploy some other method of payment.
