One Large Glass of Milk

June 30, 2008 at 12:18 am 5 comments

I went to The Original Pancake House for breakfast this morning and along with my pancake, eggs and bacon meal, I ordered a large milk. The following images depict the size of the ‘large’ milk.

The first compares the size of the glass to a standard syrup container (I’m sure you’ve used one at some point). The second picture shows the same size orange juice. I estimate I got about 12oz of milk.

My issue here is price. The milk was $2.69. I paid for nearly an entire gallon. There are 128 ounces in a gallon, which translates to about 10 glasses per gallon, which translates to $26.90 in total revenue to the store.

Oh, and the OJ, it was only slightly more expensive. $4.39. WOW

Today at lunch, I got a glass that represented exactly what I was expecting when ordering a ‘large’ glass:

The first picture compares the glass to a typical bottle of Tabasco. Not exactly the same scale as the maple syrup dispenser, but at least it’s a reference. The second picture shows the wide mouth of the glass. Huge is the only word to describe it.

    Breakfast this morning proved to be a real treat. Once again in California, I ordered a large milk to go along with my pancakes. The milk came and resembled the larger glass pictured above. Price – $1.85. That’s more like it. So it’s not that CA is more expensive, it’s just the Original Pancake House is a ripoff.
