Tim Hortons has unveiled new lids for its coffee cups but it is not going over well with everyone who religiously have their Timmies every day.

Some people on social media have vented their disdain, saying that the lids are leaking — which was an issue raised with the old lid.

This past summer, the fast-food giant said it would be introducing more environmentally-friendly lids — emblazoned with a maple leaf — to include a closeable spout combat the leaking lid problem.

In fact, Tim Hortons said the new lid was tested by thousands of people who climbed hundreds of stairs and drove plenty of miles with cups in hand to design a cap that will cut down on the leaking.
