I'm Addicted!

Pin It
I'm Jay Terauchi and I'm addicted to Betty's Best Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies...

Geez, it's been maybe 15 years now since I've been addicted to these cookies... My auntie in Honolulu would always get cookies for me to bring back to my family here. She wouldn't tell where she got these cookies, since she knew what I liked. It wasn't until a friend took me to Wholesale Unlimited and the first words out of my mouth, "Ahhh, this is where my auntie gets them..." I know everyone in the store heard me loud and clear.

My friend Teri recently returned from Hawaii and picked up some cookies for me. I knew they'd be gone in a heartbeat, so I had to put them out of sight. I've had them for almost a week and still have half a bag, I did share some with my friend Jeff (No Twitter name yet).




One Week
Still have some left...

Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie
I know what you're saying, I don't like oatmeal either,
but these cookies don't have a lot of oatmeal and are very addicting

Mahalo Teri
Most people know I love chocolate chip cookies. So, what's the fasination with this hard cookie? I won't say what I think the "addicting" factor is, but to me it's the same principle as why people are addicted to sushi. There is a very subtle taste that only one person, besides me, has picked up on. That's all I'll say...
Wonder how long I can keep from finishing off the bag?

Burger Epilogue

Pin It
Monday, November 1st was Sushi Day in Japan and I was all set for a sushi lunch. Massive phone calls and project deadlines didn't allow me to leave my desk. While on the phone, I happened to see a picture posted on "Burgers on the Edge" Facebook page and it looked so good... Right @jlieu?

Avocado Burger
If you missed it...I asked my interim assistant to pick up lunch on her way back from FedEx. She returned with a California Roll and tried to convince me that "The LA Sushi Guys" should eat sushi today... The real truth was that she had no clue where to get a burger that I had described, this is why she's an interim assistant, j/k...
It was good and satisfied my need for a good burger, but was NO "Burgers on the Edge" and the fries were overcooked... It was close, but we aren't playing horseshoes... BOO!
So, I'm still in search for a great burger and have to thank "Burgers on the Edge" for setting the bar so high...

What? No burger today...

Pin It
In Japan, today is Sushi Day. This morning, I was all set to have sushi for lunch in celebration of sushi day. Somehow, I got stuck on the phone all morning. While on the phone, I was checking Facebook and saw a picture of an awesome burger combo with fries from Honolulu's Burgers on the Edge. That's all I could think of...

Since I was stuck on the phone, I had to scramble to get a few things done today. Now it's 3 pm and didn't have a chance to grab lunch yet. I described the awesome burger to my interim assistant and asked her to pick up lunch for me on the way back from FedEx.

This is what she picked up for my lunch today...


No burger combo for me today...She said that I would probably regret not having sushi on sushi day, since Jeff Nitta and I are launching "The LA Sushi Guys" site today. She then told me that she had no idea where to get the kind of burger that I described and didn't want to disappoint me.

Solution: I just have to get on a plane and go to Burgers on the Edge in Hawaii...
