I had to try one. I couldn’t resist…
So, after I found out that DP was available in Budapest, I took the tram to MOM Park, a shopping center in town. On the bottom floor is a small fruit and vegetable store with DP for sale.
I already knew that is was expensive, but after the dentist had drilled on my teeth, I needed some comfort drink from the great state of Texas (while DP was invented in Texas, I don’t think the particular bottle I was drinking was made there…) 🙂
I looked at the price, figured it up in my head and debated whether or not to buy it. I started to walk away, but turned around and bought it.
Then, today, after finishing up the appointment at the dentist, I was in need of more comfort food. The Subway here sells those wonderful cookies just like in the US. I knew that the cookies were expensive as well. I had already contemplated buying them once before but couldn’t bring myself to buy one.
So, today, just like Wednesday, I was in need of some comfort food and went to Subway, counted out the money and bought a chocolate chip and an oatmeal/ raisin cookies. They were very tasty. I really wanted a peanut butter cookie. However, beggars can’t be choosers in this situation!
Drinking 1/2 liter bottle of DP in Budapest: $3
Eating a cookie from Subway: $1.20 (each)
Enjoying a little piece of home: PRICELESS!
Sounds like a good commercial…
