QOTD 8 Nov

Postby Funky Fairy » Nov 8th, '14, 5:19 am

When you go to the shopping mall, what's your favourite treat or snack?

We always go to Costa for lattes (hot chocolate for the kids).
It's our UK version of Starbucks but much better. We love Costa.

Louis always pesters for Auntie Ann's. I think the pretzels are very expensive in the UK though so it's a treat and doesn't happen that often.

When we are in the US our treat is to share Chinese in the shopping malls.
We love doing that. It's so so good.

I truly try to avoid the mall at all costs. I'm sure that will change in a couple of years as my daughter becomes a teenager.

When I was young, my favorite treat was an Orange Julius drink. I do love a Starbuck's Salted Caramel Mocha and the yummy, soft pretzels. Wow, I haven't had a pretzel in a few years - it might be time to change that!

Yogurt shops are big currently and when I do go to the mall (which is not often), that is a fun treat because you can get a small little bit.

Hmm.... we rarely get any treats at the mall... except at Christmas when I always get a White Chocolate Candy Cane hot chocolate from Second Cup (coffee place like Starbucks)... it is my one holiday shopping treat.

I too avoid the mall. I usually have a certain store in mind and use the closest entrance through an anchor store. Get in, get out. The food isn't that great anymore at our local malls. I'm getting so I prefer Biggby or Tim Horton's over Starbucks - heresy I know. I had a skinny SF Peppermint Stick Mocha yesterday but I purposely went to a stand alone store to buy it.

Well, after all of my years of working retail management, I tend to avoid the malls these days. Now, I do love a good stroll through Target and I stop at Starbucks to get the seasonal flavored latte. Right now, it is gingerbread!

Not much into shopping at the mall myself. We would walk around when the kids were little, and if we got a treat it would be a hot pretzel and lemonaide. I agree though...that was years ago and they were spendy.

I hardly ever go to the mall anymore.... it's true.
Most of my shopping is done on line or on etsy.. or in local stores near where I live.
I'm not a big mall shopper at all.
