RE: Are you a snob?
I'm a food snob. I only buy food that is high quality and read the ingredients of pretty much everything. I won't even settle for regular ketchup.

Ignorance is not to be ignored.

RE: Are you a snob?
I feel like I'm a snob when it comes to movies and TV. I'm very picky about what I watch and it takes a large amount of effort before I'll commit to watching anything. I can quickly tell if it's going to be shit, too. If I'm forced to watch it it I'll make a lot of sarcastic comments and generally ruin the whole experience for anyone else who is around.

I like high quality food too but not organic, that's just an excuse to sell overpriced stunted malformed vegetables at massively over inflated prices. Laugh out load

That's not how this thread is meant. That's why I gave examples of turning my nose up at starbucks and tomatoes, not the people who prefer them.

Ah, I see: a snob about snobbery. Big Grin

No seriously, I'll drink any cold beer but I prefer Blue Moons or Red Stripes (Red Stripes are really good) and I do feel a bit snooty buying them.

There was a time, before Coors was available everywhere, when if you had Coors in upstate NY, you could name your price for a can of the precious stuff. (To get it pretty much required a round trip to Colorado.)

And people would pay your price, and boast about it. Now that was snobbery.

Heh. So no carbonation, and nothing with salt? Okay, maybe not - especially in coffee. Sadcryface
But I also like my coffee without the inorganic pesticide residue. Drinking Beverage

Ah, but the very best pesticides are organic: endosulfan, diazinon, methyl parathion . . . organophosphates, one and all.

RE: Are you a snob?
BTW, "snob" has a special meaning in Oregon: the Society of Native Oregon Born.

To become a member one either has to have been born in Oregon, or lived in the state continuously for 50 years or more.

By those criteria I am, alas, not a snob.

For Coors? Yowza!

Of course, I can remember when the beer selection in many stores was Schlitz, Bud, Strohs and Miller, so I guess I can see it.

Interesting...long as I can remember (in Houston area) the "big three" were always bud, coors, and miller. Then there were various cheaper brands. Schlitz was very popular. We didn't have Weideman or Hudepohl (misspelled I'm sure) but those were big with family in midwest.
