One Large Glass of Milk

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

UPDATE

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.

Eating enough breakfast?

I was talking an online survey and one question stuck me as odd:

12. How often do you eat breakfast in a typical week?
Never
1 time
2-5 times

The choices presented to me don’t represent my breakfast intake of 7 days a week. Apparently not eating breakfast is very common. So much so, that ‘Never’ and ‘once a week’ make up 2/3 of the options.

Even Spread

I don’t think at any point in my life have I had a salt bagel that was evenly coated in salt. The top half is always coated in salt. It’s almost white. The bottom half might as well be a plain bagel.

I’m no baker, but is it terribly hard to get salt on both sides? If it is, then ok, can we at least sprinkle with salt instead of dumping a cup full on top of the bagel? I’ve seen numerous people scrapping 3/4 of the salt off just to enjoy the bagel.

Also, if it’s possible to do with salt, I would love an everything bagel fully loaded. The everything actually falls in the opposite category of the salt, whereas, if you can only coat the top half, I would like it loaded up. Salt must be cheaper than everything ingredients.

Over the Top Donuts

This morning while grabbing a bagel, I peeked at the assortment of Dunkin’ Donuts.  This doughnut in particular caught my eye and reminded me of the pretzel Michael Scott orders on Pretzel Day from The Office.

Yes, those are mini M&M’s on top of a white frosted doughnut. I’m holding off for the creme filled, M&M and sprinkle chocolate frosted doughnut though.

Michael: Hi. Please tell me you have a sweet pretzel left.
Pretzel Guy: We do.
Michael: Thank god.
Pretzel Guy: And we have 18 different toppings. We have sweet glaze, cinnamon sugar, chocolate, white chocolate, fudge, M&Ms, caramel dip, mint chip, chocolate chip, marshmallows, nuts, toffee nuts, coconut, peanut butter drizzle, oreos, sprinkles, cotton candy bits, and powdered sugar.
Michael: Is there any way that you can do all, all of them?
Pretzel Guy: The works, you got it.
Michael: All right! Thank you!
