Top 10 Classic Arcade Games of All Time

You can argue that the golden years of the video game arcade were during the 1980’s. A pocket full of quarters would bring hours of fun to fans of blinking lights and catchy computerized theme songs.  Although the classic arcade is nearly a dinosaur, you can still pick up a classic machine on sites like ebay and craigslist

Here is a list of the top 10 classic games according to KLOV.com (http://www.arcade-museum.com/)

1.   Pac-Man

2.   Galaga

3.   Donkey Kong

4.   Star Wars

5.   Ms. Pac-Man

6.   Dig Dug

7.   Asteroids

8.   Defender

9.   Tron

10. Tempest   (Tie) Centipede

They said it, we didn't. Sometimes it's hard to tell if some customer reviews online are real or hype. If there is one thing I do know, these reviews at yelp.com are the real thing. Yelp is a trusted online source for reviews for the things we love to do.

Recently on a shopping trip to my local Kroger store, I spotted popcorn in the produce section.  This area is usually reserved for natural snacks like dried bananas and granola.  It's impressive for any small company to be on the shelves of a giant like Kroger.

I always like to check out what other popcorn companies are doing, it's hard to make better popcorn if you don't know what others are doing.  The brand is called Will Cole and they are based out of Oxford, Michigan.  This is what I observed:

1. Our popcorn is bigger and more tender.
2  We have tons more chocolate. Theirs looked like the chocolate was smeared on.
3. Their taste could not compare with our fresh sweet caramel, it has a slightly burned flavor.

Believe it or not, the above picture represents the exact same amount of popped kernels.  Ours on the left, Will Cole brand on the right. 

We've had opportunities to sell at bigger stores.  We always turn them down.  It's difficult to keep high standards when you're mass producing. 

We never sacrifice quality for profit.

Sometimes we take for granted our favorite things. Some of the best things in life can be gone in a flash.  We always talk about doing the right thing, but sometimes doing the right thing can have bad consequences. Fort Worth Star-Telegram article about Dr. Pepper's impact on small town Texas.

Apparently there is a Dr. Pepper museum in Waco, Texas.  Being the soda fan that I am, I am surprised that I did not know this fact.  

Dr. Pepper was invented in 1885 by Charles Alderton in of all places, a drug store.  Like Coca Cola, it was thought the beverage would have medicinal effects.  People just liked drinking it and it became wildly popular.  Kinda makes you wonder if folks in 1885 were chasing a high that never materialized?

Read more about this cool place. Then visit the museum website.

I love Cheerwine.  It's a southern soda pop treat that is as refreshing as it is tasty.  Cheerwine and Krispy Kreme doughnuts may make my head explode.  Check out this blog post from CookBookAholic

If that makes your mouth water, you can get a bottle of Cheerwine at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn & Soda Pop Market in Old Town Lansing.

Has reality television jumped the shark?  I know I love to watch a fair amount of junk television while chomping on a bowl of popcorn, but every time I find out the show I am watching is fake, I become disappointed.  

Check out the Windy City Writeups blog.  What do you think?
