relative costs

the next time you pop some money into a vending machine and it eats one of your quarters, pretend that the cost of your item is more equivalent to what you'd pay at a movie theatre or a sports arena concession stand or a coffee shop or whatever and consider how much money you're still saving.

just a random thought.

Good point. And if you don't buy it at all because the thing ate your first quarter you'll probably be more healthy.

i'm thinking snacks, dear. like sun chips or peanut m&ms or liquid vending machines as well.

or the occasional egg salad.

okay, i'm joking about that last one.

in reality the high fructose corn syrup thing only bothers me in beverages and not food, at least in small spurts, because in food i see it as being a particular flavor attribute as opposed to, say, partially hydronated oils which i consider to be a texture attribute.

practically speaking, i can eat M%Ms more tolerably than i can eat Doritos and Triscuit that's of the non-fat variety (although the salt content in Triscuit can be all blech too).

Overall, i prefer the evaporated cane juice sweeteners you find in things like vitamin water.

and vending machine eggs salad has neither of those things. ;)

OR you can think that you're leaving a quarter behind for some lucky patron, but not really.
