Wallet Punch Plus
Fifteen years ago or so, I recall enjoying my first smoothie from Smoothie King. Yum! It was tasty, allegedly nutritious, and you could have one as a snack or in place of a meal. All for only 3 bucks or so.
Sure, I know how prices rise over time. But has anyone else had a smoothie recently and payed nearly ten dollars? Seriously. Order a large smoothie, plus an additive, and after tax you just shelled out ten bucks for a big hearty beverage.
I reflected on this yesterday after I took my wife to Cafe Reconcile and we stuffed ourselves for just over $10 total. We weren’t even hungry for dinner afterwards– and that’s a rare, rare happenstance at our place.
And speaking of bargains, I think the Palace Cafe is running its popular two-course “temperature lunch” special again this summer.
