Philadelphia Cream Cheese: The Fat Pride Size 3 Pound Tub

What a great find this was. Philadelphia Cream Cheese - the good stuff - has begun selling their spread in a 3 pound plastic tub. As the photos show, it is app. 4 1/2 inches tall and about the same in diameter. Not only will this big boy keep you stocked up with the cream cheese, it also is very cost efficient when compared to buying it by those little tubs that sell for around 3.00. Franklin, one of our staffers lost the receipt so we cannot quote exactly what we paid for the big size at this time.

Subway 5 Buck Subs

This has been going on for at least a week and not sure when it ends - they say 'limited time only' on the menuboards at Subway. Any footlong sub is 5.00 flat rate. Pictures above is the chicken bacon ranch (toasted) with shredded cheese, lettuce, red onions, jalapenos, chipotle sauce and the sweet onion sauce ( This sub is normally 7.79 - that is why the staff does not go there during normal pricing.

If you would like to rate my sub, please use a scale of 1 to 10 with the comments link below.

Burger King NEW Potato Chips Fries & Ketchup Flavor

Now when we saw these, it really put us over the edge. All the new Doritos flavors banging out and then BAAM here comes Burger King into the game. These were like strip shaped chips that seriously smelled and tasted like fries and ketchup - however who like cold fries and ketchup? There is now a new flavor - something "baked" and we will be sampling those later this week. Worth trying out just for the novelty taste.

McDonald's Testing Outsourcing Their Drive-Thru Order Takers

In the Northwest U.S., we have been told by one of our thinktank members that when you talk to to the drive-thru box next time at McDonald's you may be speaking with someone at a call center as far away as another state. We belive that this may be the first step to the fully automated restaurant with no actual humans employed. This outsourcing is being done to improve correct order-taking - something that has been a problem since day one. Regardless how this pans out, we always recommend you check your order before leaving the drive-up window and if the person behind you honks impatiently just flip them the bird.

Our goal is to bring you the best and forget the rest.

Anonymous Photo: ??Cocktail??

We received an anonyomous photo of what appears to be a couple of mixed drinks - interesting thing is what the heck is floating in them? Your guesses will be forwarded to our thinktank team.
