What do you think?


message 2: by Phil (new)

Phil | 11604 comments I'm not brand loyal.

My clothing and shoes are whatever is on sale and looks good (though I do like "Life is Good"), my food is whatever is on sale (unless I've had it in the past and it tasted like crap), my toiletries are whatever I see at Costco.

Warning to LG: The link only shows the top five brands. You want to see the rest? It's a slideshow. 100 slides.

Pepsi already sucks.

We call that one "Honey Boats" because my son has always liked it but when he was younger he couldn't say it correctly.

message 9: by Laurin (new)

Laurin (laurinlooloo) | 1867 comments General Motors. 3 generations of my family worked for them, and I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them. I will NOT drive anything that isn't made by GM.

Coke. Pepsi is too sweet.

Disney. I've been going every year, multiple times a year since I was 5. My family loves Disney. I've never been to Universal, and I don't ever plan on it. My life goal (legitimately) is to go to every Disney park on earth.

Dooney & Bourke/Coach - not necessarily those brands, but expensive purses in general. I don't buy cheap purses. I've bought $20 purses that are ruined after 3 months. I've had some of my $150-$200 purses for years and they're still in great condition.

Mary (merrussell) I really like Kashi products. I especially like their blackberry graham cereal bars-they are to die for!

High Altitude Hungarian Flour


message 14: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Why the hungarian flour, Petra? Ok...I see those high altitude directions on some recipes...do you really have to use them? Also, when you go down to low altitude, does the air feel different?

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3385 comments Tightassedness irks me.

I used to be loyal to brands: Cheer, Charmin, Bounty, Dawn, Clorox, Safeguard. Now I'm a bargain whore.

I can attest to going to a lower altitude feeling different. I live at 7500 ft elevation. When I go to sea level I feel like I could walk for miles and not get tired. I also sleep soooo much better.
And you really do have to follow those high altitude directions!

I agree, they do not taste the same.

 ~Geektastic~ (atroskity) | 3207 comments Oh, and Pop-Tarts. I don't want "toaster pastries," I want Pop-Tarts. They just taste better (except for the bizarro candy flavors they have been making lately, ick).

I remember making mac & cheese on a mountain once and the whole pot dissolved into starchy goo because we didn't know about the temperature difference.

I'm giving up on Tom's of Maine. I hate the texture. I like a slightly grainy toothpaste.

Yes, there is a noticeable difference for us high altitude people when we visit you low landers. Why do you think there is an Olympic Training Center in CO Springs and the cyclists train in our fair mountains? As Mary said, when I visit a beach and go for a run it is so easy.
Also, as Bun and Pi mentioned, there is a difference in baking. I always have to add about 1/4 cup extra flour to a recipe.


message 27: by Laurin (new)

Laurin (laurinlooloo) | 1867 comments I'm starting to lose faith in McDonald's. I should stop eating there since I'm trying to lose weight.

But every time I go, it's a bad experience. They forget something, mess something up, or are just generally rude. I understand that this might not be the ideal job for everyone, but be thankful that you have a job, a lot of people don't.

I do buy my deodorant from the health food store (it's not Tom's of Maine). It has fewer chemicals, and more important, it doesn't stain my clothing. It's more expensive but it lasts a really long time.

Natures Gate makes a really nice herbal shampoo without chemicals especially parabens which are really bad.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. I didn't have munch faith in them to begin with, so they're slowly creeping toward zero. And I never have had a McRib and I plan on keeping it that way.

Sarah | 13815 comments Gotcha.


message 34: by Laurin (new)

Laurin (laurinlooloo) | 1867 comments If I want ribs, I will go to a reputable place. $5.00 for a rib meal seems a bit skeevy to me.

Good plan. The rib place will give you actual ribs. There is no rib in the McRib sandwich.

Félix (habitseven) Reconstituted rib meat only.

Wait, I live on a mountain and make mac and cheese a few times a week, what do I do different than those down low?
