I am somewhat of a chocolate snob. Hershey's chocolate is not worth the calories. I am becoming a yarn snob. Are you a snob of any sort?
Frozen vegetables to fresh except those I get from truck farmers picked that A.M. Egyptian cotton oversized towels and high thread count sheets. All leather shoes and handbags. Grandsons with dry noses!
How old is the grandson?
Good beer none of that miller light crap!
BBQ, Red Meat, & chocolate.
That's growing up in KC for ya.
Im a snob when it comes to snacks.
Yarn snob (merino, baby alpaca, cashmere blends - preferred P&TY), color snob, tea snob (*specific brands*).
But, I *do* have fiber sensitivities so unsure if that counts as true snobbery; have really bad reaction to some fibers & high-micron-count fibers. Very color aware, always have been, & some colors - ewww! Tea? Just know what tastes best to me. :-)
I'm extremely "low maintenance" in almost every way about almost every thing. Just not interested in being "demanding."
I'm like that when it comes to color too. We almost bought a car but the radio digital numbers were bile yellow. I chose the car with the blue digital numbers my husband can't understand it.
I'm a music snob. Prob more in the sense of I really pay attention to artists & don't enjoy mainstream generic music at all. and won't listen to it.
I'm actually usually a snob against snobs. I get really annoyed by people who refuse to eat or try something for snobbish reasons, people that make fun of others' taste or choices, or who act too good for something. I'm an anti-snob snob.
I like that.
I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to my hiking gear. It must be ultra light or super light for its purpose or I don't even consider it. My overnight pack, including food and water is about 17-18 lbs for a solo trip.
I'm a bit of a tv and film snob. It seems to happen if you take film classes. You start to hold films up to a higher standard than just "Does this amuse or entertain me?"
Absolutely. Anyone who has no appreciation of batik fabrics should be sent into outer space.
I am a snob with cheeses, and wine.
And a ice cream snob.
I don't like stupid people.
Today's my birthday.
Crap. This was supposed to be the start of a new poll, not a comment.
Well, happy birthday anyway!
Have a very very happy birthday did you get anything special? Did you eat anything special?
Got some video games and other great gifts. Ate at one of my favorite restaurants. It was a very good day.
I'm with you on the chocolate. I'm also a garlic snob..it has to be Christopher Farms or at least California. Fish has to be perfectly fresh, fruit must have no bruises, hot dogs all beef with natural casing, no frozen/chain pizza, organic catsup.
The more I think about it, I'm a terrible snob about lots of things.
I love you anyway.
Mustard, knives, and meat.
Seriously, I can't make myself eat poultry or yellow mustard.
I don't care for yellow mustard much, either. Loops Deli mustard is my favorite. Poultry works for me if it's organic or Kosher, but the stuff from grocery stores tastes like cardboard and I doubt is even healthy.
I don't like yellow mustard either. We get beaver mustard when were in Corvallis
I'll have to try the kosher chicken sometime, thanks. Personally, I prefer Inglehoffer Stone Ground mustard, I've never had Beaver, but I think I've heard of it. It has horseradish maybe?
Get it fresh from a Kosher butcher shop, if possible; not the frozen stuff in a grocery store. Then if you still don't like it, you really don't like it.
Trader Joe's sells Empire brand Kosher chickens. With these babies, you can't go wrong!
I think it's named for Oregon State University. It has to kick to it and it's really good I don't want mustard either.
When I was shopping at Trader Joe's what time somebody stop me and asked me where the kosher section was.
^^ @Tops: Haha!
Bikes, tools and food
Real Coca Cola, Charlie's Famous Hamburgers (Charlie's Special) Wichita 3200 W. 13th, Honda Pilot.
Starbucks Coffee or Nothing!
That's the real white girl wasted right there!
Don't understand your reply? ?
It's a joke. That white girl wasted is actually drinking Starbucks coffee.
I have become a snob when it comes to bed sheets. Nothing less than 800 thread count - Pima or Egyptian cotton sateen weave. I'm spending over 1/3 of my day in bed I'm going to treat myself good.
I do that, too.
Camera snob for sure, phone cameras are a joke, point and shoot are hardly worth putting in your hand. I prefer medium format film but am liking the DSLRs
Yeah, I'm kind of a snob when it comes to games, but I'm working on it. I've even managed to enjoy some rounds of Apples To Apples!
Not really snobby, buy i only buy Dawn dish soap now. It literally lasts years it's so concentrated. You end up saving money over cheap alternatives.
It's the only one I will use. It's a great product and I love that they donate it to save the birds after every oil spill.
I totally agree with you I think so too
Summer camp snob.
Day camp? Babysitting.
Two week sessions? Noobs.
Coffee and beer
I am also a chocolate snob.
With you on the chocolate!
Caress Soap, Coke, and my coffee ecigs.
Coca Cola, Hellman's Mayonaise
When I'm at my daughters house I always tease my son-in-law. And ask him where the miracle whip is. He is a mayo man.
Mechanical or automatic watches only, and mechanical transmissions in cars.
Oops I mean manual transmissions
Topsqueen...are you a knitter or crocheter?
Both but I prefer knitting now. I am determined not to take up spending.
I have crocheted for many years...mostly white crochet. Started knitting about 3 yrs ago and rarely crochet anymore.
I'm something of a yarn snob...but I try to find my yarn at cheap prices...which I have been able to do. Just cannot afford too many skeins of yarn at $30 or more.
I got some wonderful yarn manufactured in France and it's not that expensive. If you ask for their sample book it is amazing. Bergere de France. The prices are quite good. I'm meeting my daughter at neck scarf or should be.
Thanks for sharing info about the French yarn. I will take a peek for it!
I got some cyclone and I making my daughter and my son scarfs with it. So soft. And sounds very impressive when you tell somebody you need them something with love from imported from French yarn.
Tea snob for sure! I carry my own in case someone serves me Lipton or GFS crap in a restaurant.
Cheese snob too... Life is too short to bother with American Cheese, aka "processed cheese food".
South of us in Bandon Oregon they have a Cheesefactory that one international awards.
Oregon cheese is quite good.
Face rock cheese. Bandon Or. Bandit has a bookstore where I get most of my knitting books they have good quilt books too m
Beer snob and water snob.
Watches and sunglasses
Not really, or maybe so but the other way around. I can't see paying more for a "name" or "premium" brand product that is no better than the cheap stuff from Costco. And I completely disagree about delicious Hershey's chocolate. Mmm good!
On things like yarn though there is a big difference in the quality. I think Costco is good stuff anyway.
Beer snob and coffee snob.
I am a beer snob, car snob, hotel snob, and kids' shoe snob.
I agree that Hershey's milk chocolate is not worth the calories. I'll allow the Special Dark, but prefer others.
Okay if I ever post I'm going to Montana let me know where to go I love malts especially chocolate ones. I like my malt barely so it's crunchy
^^ Tops, see Missoula and Bozeman, and especially Glacier National Park! It's right up there with the Grand Canyon in spectacular-ness.
Video games. As someone who's played around 600 games across many different platforms, I tend to look down on those who call themselves gamers, but only play tablet, mobile, or browser games, or who only play when they're bored.
I keep those thoughts to myself though. Unlike many of my fellow gamers, I don't go around insulting people for being, as they often put it, "filthy casuals".
What are some of your favorite games of all time?
Bioshock, Septerra Core, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Fallout: New Vegas, Tomb Raider (2013), The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Halo, Final Fantasy X, To the Moon, and I could go on. I never can narrow it down, because I love so many for different reasons.
Wow, I've never played those. Been out of gaming for a solid ten or so years though. My all time favorites were the Wing Commander series, and Prince of Persia. The story was well done, particularly in the latter.
I loved Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. But after Warrior Within disappointed and frustrated me to no end, I left the series. Heard of Wing Commander growing up, but never tried one. Got 3 free on Origin though. Might try it out eventually.
Warrior Within was disappointing, but Two Thrones really tied it all together and redeemed the series in my opinion. I'd give it a try. I didn't make it past that one, but not because I was disappointed.
Cafe Britt espresso roast, and Ghirardelli chocolate. I allow myself one square of chocolate a day. My favorites include dark chocolate with caramel and sea salt, dark chocolate truffles, and recently the Mocha. So good!!
Computer stuff (Apple). Ice cream (preferably Graeter's). A lot of food in general... I'd rather have a small amount of something high quality than a whole lot of something made of crap (I'll just skip the latter entirely).
You have that one right sister!
Sushi, coffee, & toilet paper...3 things you don't skimp on ever.
Wilburs chocolate is way better than Hershey's
You get shot in pa for speaking of Hershey's chocolate that way
Tea for sure. I cannot drink anything but freshly brewed tea leafs as opposed to dust. I expect Cats to back me up on this. I also suddenly cannot eat store bought cookies and even local bakeries fail to impress.
Do you have a favorite tea brand?
I order on line. www.adagio.com
I live for good tea. Love tasting the different varieties of breakfast teas...especially when it is served with fresh organic milk in a proper teacup. Best everyday for me is a rotation of PG Tips, Yorkshire Gold, Tazo Awake, or Two Leaves.
I will definitely try Adagio! Do you have a favorite black tea? Thanks for the introduction!
Ceylon sonata is my go to. There is a Chinese black tea that i also like that is very expensive- can't remember which.
Beauty products and handbags. I also have a thing for North Face because their stuff is so warm and I'm always cold.
