The Curse of the 0dtes
Trader Joe’s announced the winners of its 14th annual Customer Choice Awards. This year’s overall best winner was their Chili & Lime Rolled Tortilla chips. :: runs out to grab a bag :: Inconceivably the chocolate croissants came in 4th place, but maybe the 18,000 people who voted don’t respect a good breakfast pastry as much as I do.
Speaking of breakfast, this guy went to Mcdonalds, ordered a sausage McMuffin and was handed a bag with 5k in small bills. Despite the universal desire to peel out and keep the money, he returned it to the restaurant and was rewarded with free McDonalds for a month and $200 cash. If he wants to come out even on this deal, he needs to take them to the cleaners and order about 1200 Egg McMuffin meals this month, which breaks down to just 40 per day. I pray he fights the good fight.
In today’s edition of “who would drink that?” I recently learned of a new Chili Cheese Beer. That’s right, read that again. A Chili Cheese Beer. I make Chili probably 15x a year, and the main ingredient is beer, but I never thought of DRINKING the mixture. Known for its meat, food company Hormel announced a collaboration with a Minnesota based beer company to produce a Chili Cheese Flavored Beer. They’ve used barley malt as a base, and describe the taste as “chip like,’ while also mixing in powdered cheese and spices to create the chili cheese taste. I believe I speak for all of us when I say, “this must be flying off the shelf.”
If you listened to my show this week with Bootch, you heard how much I love music. It is truly one of my greatest passions. I’ve been noodling for a while over the idea if making a monthly trading playlist, and I finally did it! Here is the first one!
