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.

    I haven’t been to Smoothie King in a while but $10 is ridiculous. Go to the web site, click the “On the Menu” tab, then “Discounts”, and check out the coupon!

    Cafe Reconcile is an amazing value. Definitely reccomended.

    Everything is going up in price bro. Try the 20oz smoothie with no boost. Cuts that $10 in half for you.

    $10 for something without alcohol? That’s just stupid.
