Justin Bieber has made it clear he isn’t a fan of the new lids at Tim Hortons and — as celebrities do — it seems he’s started a trend.
Retro-lid lovers can now take to the Internet to get ahold of the cup-toppers that we all thought were long gone.

Described as “antique” and “vintage,” the postings are all offering unused lids, one noting that they’re “in high demand locally and nationwide.”
“We took more than two years to develop the new lid – conducting 12 research studies, serving over 30 million beverages, and working with thousands of guests to help us design it,” said Alex Macedo, president of Tim Hortons, in a release at the time of the new lid launch.
“Our guests have been asking for a better lid for years and we took the time to research and develop an improved lid that not just reduces spills but has a reduced carbon footprint. Guest feedback on our new lid is overwhelmingly positive with a nine-to-one preference over our old lid,” Macedo said.
But what if you’re the one in that nine-to-one? The offer by Ian Benninghaus reads: “Can deliver. Cross posted. First come first serve.”
