The pesto jar photo is just to have some visual symmetry in this post. Pesto tastes nothing like a frappucino.

Dang it, Starbucks and your overpriced sweetness. I really have a problem with spending $2+ for a little bit of calorie-laden coffee, but dang it – it tastes so good and I tell myself that I’ll reuse the bottle (like I like to reuse jars). So I do.

I really like the bottles because the are almost the same size as some antique milk bottles we have somewhere around here, but there’s no ‘ruin the value’ problem when you actually use them. I keep the juice concentrate in a little one and make Italian dressing in a tall one. Unfortunately, that is all I can think of to do with the bottles, so I guess I’ll never buy another one.

The only way to eat avocados.

Dang it. They tasted good.

    Where are ecologically sensitive recycled glass products going to get their recycled glass if not from you? After all, recycling IS one of the three R’s.

    I’m with you…love the drink, hate the price. I once got a coupon for $1 off of two 4packs and I was tricked into thinking it was a bargain.

    Keep drinking & send all the empties to Brad for cut flowers. Or he could put messages in them & throw them out to sea.

    I just sent you an email that you will love! 🙂
