They are probably coastal. (East/West coast.)

Most of those "trendy" places don't do well in the heartland at all.
For example, I can't imagine anyone paying more than 75 cents for a cup of coffee.

And concidering what list they're on... Be glad you've never heard of them.
That is probably very true. ;)

Coffee here is what? 1-2$ ? if you want something other then just plain then it's $5 +

There's a place called "Starbucks" that's the big thing right now. I don't know if you have them in other places like Nova Scotia or not, but they're the big dogs in the US. (I guarantee Richard knows what they are, I think they started in California didn't they??) Anyway, they sell those $5.00 coffee's.

We never did get one around here but in town a wannabe place opened up. Same thing, $5.00 coffee just for a little Hersheys syrup added and some whipped creme on top.

The big thing I have seen recently are fake "Starbucks" coffee cups!! :D

They look just like the ones from the frilly little coffee shops with the snap on lids and all of that, but you buy them in packs like any other disposable cup.

That way you can fill them in the morning, drive to work and everyone thinks you're cool and paid big bucks for your coffee! :cool:

Myself...I'll stick with my Stanley thermos thank you very much.

Yah .... We have Star Bucks here but I don't like their coffee . It's bitter and over priced . I know you guys don't have Tim Hortons but I think some parts of the States do . Every one lines up here for a famous Timmies. .... Coffee is $1.75 for a large.

Funny you should say about krispy cream . When they first came here people lined up over night to get those donuts and then gradually we saw them disappear . They didn't do good here cause everyone goes to Tim Hortons . They are like the national trade mark or something . They are always busy.

The Krispy Kreme that opened here a few years ago with massive hype and fanfare and long lines faded quickly into oblivion. I think there's an office supply store there, now.

I don't go to a lot of fast-food places anymore, but I gotta have my Wendy's now and then. Best fries of any right now.

i personally think KFC or Dairy Queen has the best frys followd closely by A&W. i find wendys frys to be kinds soggy and way to greasy though that might just be the wendys here they probably dont have the oil hot enough.
