Krispy Kreme Glazed Chocolate Cake Doughnut


After Starbucks iced coffee (in photo posted Sept. 16), a little later I ate this doughnut at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. I went there other times this year in the spring and summer.

I like to sit there, eat a doughnut, and prepare my stomach for more to eat, which is what I did when I went to Carl's Jr. for a big burger soon after this, except I only ate about half of the burger, though I ate all of the doughnut except some crumbs. That doesn't mean I didn't like the burger, part of it (just the meat part) was for some body else, some four-footed body.

Anyway, there's a better Krispy Kreme photo from another time and when I can find where it is on the computer, I will show it on here.

Sonic Hot Fudge Shake

This photo makes me crave one more, except I've already had more than one more since June when I drank this shake. So I meant that I want one more right now.

Sonic Drive-In is a feel-good place to drink a shake while listening to music

                        Large Hot Fudge Shake at Sonic

I went to Sonic after 8 pm one evening in June (also pictured last time) to see if their shakes really were just half price after 8 pm. 

Well, shakes were $2 for large (which usually is $3.99 before the tax) and that's what I chose, but everybody in the area seemed to know about the half-price deal.

I had to wait a while to order my shake and then a little more time before I got it.  I wasn't in much of a hurry and just relaxed, listening to the music on Sonic radio or whatever they call it, and the songs were pleasing to my ears, including a song by Kiss, but I'm not sure it was the original version or even if it was them.

The shake is easy to drink since it's soft and smooth, not too thick or hard to get through the straw, and the flavor is a good one.  There's whipped topping and a cherry on top.

Sonic Drive-In Special on Shakes and Malts


Sorry, this photo is from June. The most recent time I went to a Sonic drive-in (not the same location) was last Saturday and they still have the half price shakes and malts after 8 pm.

I asked the girl working there how long the special price after 8 pm will continue but she didn't sound sure, so I'm not saying.

Can you tell which band this is?


It's hard to see them in this picture and should spark some curiosity.
I like this CD.

Starbucks iced coffee


I need to look at my notes to remember how to order this iced coffee.

Ah yes, here are some of my notes... I wrote this down: I went back through and she said that was sweetened with our Classic Syrup. She said I can just say iced coffee sweetened with cream and that's what I'll get. She said she likes iced coffee with coconut syrup (or hazelnut syrup) I said I'd try those flavors too.

I decided to strike through it because that's how it appears on the paper I wrote my notes on, but maybe she liked hazelnut syrup too, but I wasn't thinking clearly at that moment.

On the paper with my notes, I wrote that it was about 5 pm on Tuesday, August 13, 2012 but I just looked at the calendar and it was Tuesday, August 14, 2012 so at least I got the year right. haha

It was the beginning of the day that didn't end with chicken nuggets and a shake at Jack in the Box. However, since this is almost like part soap opera and almost part like a great movie that backs up, goes head, then settles on the middle of the story for the closing scene, or something else that confuses people.

So then, backing up to before I got there... I went to Starbucks because I wanted iced coffee to compare to the iced coffee I've had many times at Burger King and McDonald's. That and I just wanted some iced coffee.

I used the drive-thru and asked her to make Venti Iced Coffee the way she normally does.

I wrote in my notes: I'd say it's equal to McDonald's and Burger King iced coffee but which one is most consistent I'll have to find out. It's the first time I had this iced coffee and liked it a lot.

More notes: I wanted to get what they normally make to see what each fast food and coffee restaurant normally or usually gives to serves to its customers.

Of course I can't (or won't) show the notes because they are sort of sloppy though I don't think I set an all-time sloppiness record for notes, if there is such a thing.

Well, I did go to there again since that time but didn't like the iced coffee the way I did before, though it could have been my fault for not saying the right words when I ordered. Sometime I'll try again.

(More from last time) After McDonald's

I went over to Jack in the Box in Meridian. Almost ready to head back for the night, I swung by this fast food restaurant, as I often do and this time saw that Jack in the Box had free five piece chicken nuggets with any drink, so I ordered a large OREO Cookie Shake and they gave me the chicken nuggets for free.

Wow! delicious. great

I underlined the words 'delicious' and 'great' and it's on the top of the receipt I'm looking at while I'm typing this in at about 7:30 pm on Sunday. I wonder how many people wanted to go back and buy more. I've bought JiTB chicken nuggets since then and plan to buy more again. They're hot (temperature) but not too hot, and I hope they still sell these chicken nuggets when it's cold outside in a couple of months. Or, better yet, sell them forever!
