Do you want to buy it?


When you see commercials for different foods whether it's frozen TV dinners or fast foods, or whatever, do you then go out and buy them? Do you do this often or rarely?


Inquiring minds want to know :)

Very rarely. I mute all commercials on TV, & change stations on the car radio when a commercial comes on. They bug me! But once in a while I'll buy something because of a commercial.

My friend Nancy says that when she becomes Dictator of the World, there will be no food commercials after 8 PM. LOL. (That "What will you do when you become dictator of the world?" is a fun question to play with. LOL)

Very smart idea Katz,
Often those commercials are quite disappointing once you do buy what they're selling, LOL
Love the idea of no food commercials after 8pm, we wish

Sure would be, feel free to start it :)

LOL, I guess it depends on the item being advertised.

I guess I'm "sold" pretty easily on things.

When I see the advertisements for travel it always makes me want to get away and go visit that place! :o)

We don't have a Ben & Jerry's either. Are they all over the place? I kind of thought they were just in New England.

We have a Starbucks, but I've never been there. It's in a weird location, IMO. It's on the highway around all the PA Dutch tourist stuff. No local in their right mind goes to that area! LOL. If Starbucks is trying to be a "neighborhood" cafe, what are they doing on a highway in touristland? They're actually near the outlets; more for tourists.

LOL. I said stayed...not "suckered".
I certainly am one for a good deal and hardly ever splerge on myself.

Commercials kind of just give me ideas. For example;...the Mc Donald's commercials for the fruit & walnut salad... I thought that looked very refreshing, but instead of going out and buying it at Mc D's I went to the grocery store and bought the ingrdients and made us some for lunches.
It was yummy!...see I was swayed, not suckers by the commercial.

LoL

Starbucks just this year opened in Munich, and then they opened 3 at once.... gee really hitting the market... I haven't been to any of them, they are very pricey.... I do go to a really nice chain coffee shop that serves toasted bagels sandwiches also, called Fellows....

I do plan to try the Starbucks but I wouldn't rush out to go there.....

edited to correct all the typos.... LOL
