Study Finds Road Warriors Go to Starbucks and Subway... a Lot

Starbucks media pic.jpg
We all need our caffeine.
You can spot them a mile away. Bleary-eyed people in suits pulling wheelie bags like pet poodles while they stand in line at the nearest Starbucks. They're the sales professionals and marketing reps who spend most of their lives on the road, endlessly traveling from meeting to pitch.

And, like most people, they need nourishment. And by nourishment, we mean caffeine and sugar.

Vegan Meal Delivery in South Florida: DeliverLean with SexyFitVegan Ella Magers

There once was a day in which people actually cooked for themselves. Unless its for special occasions, that day has come and gone.

Whether it's eating out with friends, picking up some Chipotle on the way home, or pizza delivery, it seems like no one cooks on weeknights anymore -- and it's pretty hard to maintain a special diet without doing so.

If you haven't heard or done so yourself, a number of people have turned to meal delivery services. Easy enough for most people, but vegans, not so much.

Now DeliverLean has teamed up with SexyFitVeganTM Ella Magers to offer daily delivered vegan meals.

Taco Bell Cool Ranch Doritos Locos is getting a sibling.
Not content with their brilliant ad campaign (which says, "collect all two"), Taco Bell is adding another Doritos Locos Taco to their lineup.

The fast food chain that caters to stoners and frat boys, reinvented themselves with their Doritos Locos taco, featuring a taco shell made from Nacho Cheese Doritos chips. This past spring, the success of the original Doritos Loco was duplicated by the introduction of the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos taco.

Just stop, OK?
It's pretty much agreed that when you drive your car to the Taco Bell order window, you're not there for your health.

But, then again, you might be justified in assuming you're getting a "safe" taco. As in, one that's never been licked by a human tongue.

This is real...and it's available now.
When Taco Bell launched the Doritos Locos taco, with a shell made from nacho cheese Doritos tortilla chips, stoners everywhere said a little prayer of gratitude.

The product also translated into an out-of-the-ballpark hit for the fast food giant. USA Today reports that in less than one year, over 350 million Doritos Locos tacos were sold, making it the company's most successful item ever.

Starbucks Is Expensive in South Florida: Outrageous in Norway

Categories: Fast Food
That latte's going to cost more in Moscow.
Are you addicted to Starbucks? 

We are too -- so much so that we're seriously afraid to find out what horrible detox we'd go through if we didn't have our daily allowance of caffeine and sugar.

Recently looking at our bank statement, we were shocked to see all the Starbucks charges. At about four bucks a pop, that got us a little depressed at the fact that we probably spend about $1,000 a year at the coffee chain. 

Until, of course, we read the Wall Street Journal and thanked our lucky stars we didn't live in Norway...or Sweden...or Switzerland.

Dairy Queen Customer Appreciation Days: Half-Off Specials Offered Today and Saturday

Because the Peanut Buster Parfait will never go out of style.
One of the best/worst jobs I ever held down as a high school student was slinging Blizzards and Peanut Buster Parfaits at a Dairy Queen in Lapeer, Michigan, in the late '90s. Some aspects of the gig sucked pretty hard -- like the time a grumpy, grown-ass adult literally threw something at my 15-year-old self while I was working the drive-through window -- but it was mostly easy peasy. Flirt with cute boys all summer long and get all the soft-serve ice cream I could possibly shove into my angsty teenaged face? Yes please.

It may be time to dip into the nostalgia of Dairy Queen as the ice cream chain -- which pre-dates all of those trendy, flash-in-the-pan, self-serve fro-yo joints -- celebrates the start of its Customer Appreciation Day(s) today. While some locations will recognize the day on Saturday, most in South Florida appear to be offering their discounts today (Wednesday).
