Re: “Going Brazilian

Bad joke, right? Just google it.
In fact Pepsi makes Guarana Antartica for international Markets, like US. They've signed a deal in 1999. AmBev exports the GuaranĂ¡ extract to Pepsi-Co for international production.

Re: “TODAY: Uber offers sweet treat, sprinkled with convenience

I can't figure that out either. What hidden costs?

Re: “TODAY: Uber offers sweet treat, sprinkled with convenience

What "hidden costs" is Uber known for exactly?

Re: “Friendly, savory Che Gaucho Argentine & Urguay Grill

Worse service ever. World Cup finals. Called in the am to watch game at the restaurant. I was told it was sold out but could come after the game was over because they were open until 8pm. Show up to the restaurant at 6, they tell us to have a seat. 10 minutes later the waitress comes by and tells us the kitchen is closed. Parents were in town from Argentina. Total disappointment!!! My family won't be back

Re: “Piped butter cookies

If you use cake flour instead of regular all-purpose flour your dough won't be tough at all. It is the gluten that makes the cookies tough.

Re: “Charlotte needs mocktails

I could not agree with you more! I'm 6 months pregnant and would love to be able to enjoy a flavorful, well-balanced mocktail when out to dinner!

Re: “Grocery Store Wars Episode IV: A new low-price hope

You wrote, "empirical," in your opening paragraph. I think you meant, "imperial."

Re: “Three questions with Geoff Broomhead, owner of Ozpresso

He is entitled to his opinion, especially since he has tasted different coffees from all over the world. Maybe he's right. There have been other people I know from Africa, Europe, and South America that actually say the same thing: Coffee in the US coffee isn't as good.

Re: “Charlotte needs mocktails

Persis Biryani Grill has an actual mocktail menu. My pregnant wife was thrilled to find this during her third trimester when she was sick and tired of drinking ice water while everyone else had a real drink. She says they were awesome.

Re: “Three questions with Geoff Broomhead, owner of Ozpresso

I've been to Ozpresso Geoff is not nearly as pretentious as this article makes him sound. Do not judge a book by a three question interview my friends.

Re: “Where to find it: Live Blue Crabs

You really did an article about blue crabs at Super G Mart....made it sound good...did you realize they only sell FEMALE blue crabs??? No one who has a knowledge of blue crabs will EVER eat a female crab....they may have something good there but they are the reason we do not have male crabs.....seriously.....kill a female and where do you expect a child to be born? did you research crabs before you did this article? I hope others will send feedback as well. Fishing for females should be outlawed.

Re: “Three questions with John Morgan, owner of Queen Charlotte's Pimento Cheese Royale

What a fantastic story! WTG, John Morgan. You're living your dream. Your pimento cheese IS the best! I'm hesitant to say where I purchase it, as I would hate for it to always be sold out when I want to buy some, LOL but I'll show and tell --- you can find it at Providence Produce.

Re: “Eat With Your Dollars: Chocolate

I appreciate the tremendous work you are doing to uncover what the greed and profit driven food industry is putting in our "food". However, I cringe every time you push "vote/eat with your dollars" because it is highly classist and disparaging to the millions of people in this country who economically are disenfranchised. Having less money should not mean you have less of a voice.

Re: “It's time to try garlic scapes

Thanks for this. Brad from Coldwater Creek mentioned these during the Know Your Farms tour a couple weekends ago, but they didn't have any garlic scape pesto left to taste. I've been looking for it ever since; I wanna try some!

Re: “Three questions with Geoff Broomhead, owner of Ozpresso

An ounce of pretension is worth a pound of manure.

Oh well, Smelly Cat gets my coffee money when I'm in NoDa anyway, no reason to stop now...

Re: “Three questions with Geoff Broomhead, owner of Ozpresso

Good god, what a pretentious douchnozzle. I had the presumed honour of grabbing a cup of coffee last week before reading this article. Glad I did because I doubt I'll be back now! The coffee was fine, not nearly as good as Not Just Coffee (*gasp* how is that even possible?!). With so many options for a nice cuppa and less judgement in the QC, I can't see this place lasting terribly long.

Thanks for thinking I'm a tasteless troll! You know how to win over a customer base.

Re: “Three questions with Geoff Broomhead, owner of Ozpresso

Business acumen: If you want customers, don't tick them off by suggesting they are ignorant and tasteless. I can't imagine beans from Athens being as fresh as beans roasted in Charlotte. Also suggests he knows nothing about Charlotte's (now large) coffee culture beyond Caribou and Starbucks (hint: you aren't the first boutique coffee shop). I was curious about this place; not anymore. My money will continue to go to Smelly Cat, Central Coffee, and Not Just Coffee.
