Free Refills & Why I Love America Rotating Header Image

September 4th, 2009:

Deep-fried butter. That is all

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better than the Double Down Sandwich or Perky Jerky, the American spirit shows itself once again.

This time, it is deep-fried butter.

The Today Show has the details:

Who among us hasn’t simultaneously marveled and shuddered over accounts of deep-fried Twinkies? Deep-fried Oreos? Deep-fried bacon?

Well, brace yourself, because a new deep-fried item has been invented that’s so bold, so audacious, so brazen, it’s bound to take your breath away. The invention is none other than:

Deep-fried butter.

I am speechless.

God Bless America!

If a cop catches you typing out a message on your keypad or doing other “dangerous” activities like using an iPod, it will cost you $150.

Just when you thought culinary achievement had reached its zenith when KFC rolled out the Double Down Sandwich, the American food scientists have developed a new mind-blowing product: caffeinated beef jerky. Perky Jerky, as it is called, will pack an impressive 150 milligrams of caffeine into every 2 oz bag. Why sip your espresso when you can chew on jerky? –(via Consumerist)

It is not quite as consumer friendly as a free refills policy should be, but the folks at Starbucks have finally entered the civilized world of the bottomless coffee cup. They are now offering free refills on brewed or iced coffee along with two free hours of internet access. The catch is that you need to pay for your coffee with a registered Starbucks card to qualify. At least it’s a start!
