    yeah, they have really good customer service. one time, i was waiting for a while, and the guy handed me two coupons for a free starbucks beverage. and it wasn't even that long of a wait.

    another time, i bought a caffe vanilla frappucino, and it was mega ultra sweet. i wrote them an email, just saying that i got one that was too sweet, and they mailed me two coupons as well.

    i starbucks. they're so nice to me.

    maybe they realize that i spend way too much there. i have a starbucks card that gets automatically refilled via my credit card, and they sent me a statement last year. i spent 700 bucks on starbucks in 2006. -_- when i saw that statement, i decided that i needed to cut down.

    it's really not that hard. i used to go almost every morning before work. and each coffee is 3 or 4 dollars. so that's like 15 - 20 bucks a week. T_T now, i limit myself to 2 or less a week.

    is kettle corn popcorn usually sweet? the one that i got out of the boz (the microwavable type) was sweet when i tried it. or maybe they just put artifical flavors in it
    but im guessing that youre really using a kettle and putting popcorn mux in it? idk i never made it before either.... O:

    yeah, kettle corn is supposed to be sweet. i've had both the popped in a big bronze kettle and the microwave kind, and to me...they taste the same.

    here's the definition from wiki...

    Kettle corn is a sweet-and-salty variety of popcorn that adds granulated sugar, salt, and oil.

    In the 1700s, kettle corn was introduced to colonial palates in the United States. The corn was popped in iron kettles and then sweetened with sugar, honey, and sometimes molasses before adding salt. The combination was widely popular in the early 1800s but fell from wide usage during the 1900s. In the early 2000s, it has made something of a comeback in America, and as of 2006, it can be purchased at fairs and flea markets throughout the United States, as well as at grocery stores under Orville Redenbacher's, Act II, Pop Secret, and other brand names.

    Its flavor is not overwhelmingly sweet like that of caramel corn. The contrast between kettle corn's subtle sweetness and its salt flavoring has endeared it to many. Additionally, nutritionists point out that it has less fat and sodium than most flavored popcorns, a desirable feature for people on low-calorie or low-sodium diets.

    to me, kettle chips seem more deep fried than regular chips. it's probably not true, but for some reason i perceive them that way.

    yum. but unfortunetly the tastiest ones arent the most healthy. but hey, i'll die happy. i went to a burger place in seattle where the whole menu was various burgers, and a side order you had a choice of french fries, big or small, or a baked potato, etc, etc. when my plate came, there was one massive burger (the kind you have to eat with a fork or something) and like,... it musta been 5 pounds of potatoes sitting on on my plate. the plate was huge and 90% of it was french fries.

    call me a pig but i ate it all nonetheless

    My favourite type of cuisine is Thai food, I just love how they have all the flavours in the one dish, plus I like my food spicy too.

    Though someone mentioned that they like Starbucks, Um I don't know if the Starbuck coffee in the USA is any better then the ones in Australia, but I can't stand there coffee, to me, it tastes like watered-down coffee. If I've got no other choice and had to buy Starbucks coffee I have to order my Latte with an extra 1 1/2 shots of espresso just so I can taste some coffee, but that annoys me to do that cas I have to pay extra for that extra shot, and they're quite expensive as it is.

    If you say that, it does make me wonder if the coffee recipe is different for the USA and Australia. Like do they use different grains of coffee or the measure of the shot of espresso ect... Hmm I wonder if anyone on this site has tried Starbucks in both countries, if you have, please post up what your experience with there coffee is like.

    I love to eat Papaya Salad, I like it when they make it with salted crab and a little bit of asain anchovies (bah laar) I especially like to eat it with Sticky rice. Hmm so yummy.
