Rockland Bakery – A must visit

Published by CPGgal under Food,Misc.

December 24, 2010 – For anyone that lives in the New York Metro area and happens to be on the Rockland side of the Tappan Zee Bridge, I strongly recommend stopping by the Rockland Bakery. It truly is a scrumptious experience. Their breads are so fresh that you actually go into the bakery oven area [...]

The plane difference

Published by CPGgal under Transportation,Travel

December 24, 2010 – So this week I had yet another business trip. This time I flew JetBlue Airlines and it was a way different experience than two weeks earlier on United Airlines.

Published by CPGgal under Food,Grocery Stores

December 17, 2010 – While I was shopping this week I noticed Bumble Bee Tuna on sale for $0.88. What a great price I thought to myself, usually it’s about $1.00 on sale and it’s been that way for at least 20 years. I know, it’s one of the brands I used to rep when [...]

Did you know that e-commerce sites actually sell top search terms to [...]

I understand the first class boards first and even the premiere members’ load on next, but again, to load last when [...]

Coats in the overhead bin

December 9, 2010 – I haven’t flown with United Airlines in quite a while, but this week I had the opportunity to do so for an overnight business trip out to Chicago. The flight out from LGA was great, in fact it arrived 30 minutes early and the middle seat was empty. I am thinking [...]

SUBWAY® – EAT FRESH

Published by CPGgal under Food,QSR's

The holidays are upon us and yesterday my husband and I stopped for a quick lunch at Subway®. Trying to watch my food intake this holiday season I decided to go for the “healthy” menu. But what exactly does that mean? I ordered just a six inch vegetable sandwich with cheese. Even the Biggest Loser® [...]
