Only time I've ever been to Sbux was in Las Vegas.
I prefer to buy USA made products, but "careful" is what you have to be.
All-Clad makes nice SS pots and pans, but the roaster is made in China, as well as the Wok, so I bought Mauviel, (France).
Le Creuset is the brand of my enameled cast iron, (France), but I buy Lodge, (USA), for the plain type.
I just bought 7 kilos of Australian Angus beef loin.
I don't mind paying higher prices for domestic, or high-quality imports, but a crazy price for a cup of coffee has no place in my AO.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atrocities...Free_State

Quote:In the period from 1885 to 1908, a number of well-documented atrocities were perpetrated in the Congo Free State (today the Democratic Republic of the Congo) which, at the time, was a colony under the personal rule of King Leopold II of Belgium. These atrocities were sometimes collectively referred to by European contemporaries as the "Congo Horrors", and were particularly associated with the labour policies used to collect natural rubber for export. Together with epidemic disease, famine, and a falling birth rate caused by these disruptions, the atrocities contributed to a sharp decline in the Congolese population. The magnitude of the population fall over the period is disputed, but it is thought to be between one and 15 million people.

Quote:Failure to meet the rubber collection quotas was punishable by death. Meanwhile, the Force Publique were required to provide the hand of their victims as proof when they had shot and killed someone, as it was believed that they would otherwise use the munitions (imported from Europe at considerable cost) for hunting.[33] As a consequence, the rubber quotas were in part paid off in chopped-off hands. Sometimes the hands were collected by the soldiers of the Force Publique, sometimes by the villages themselves. There were even small wars where villages attacked neighboring villages to gather hands, since their rubber quotas were too unrealistic to fill.

A missionary points to the severed hand of a Congolese villager. Severed hands were "the most potent symbol of colonial brutality" in the Congo

Look at the face of the "cannibal" in the background, he doesn't look like anyone I'd want to hang out with.

We do get some, way more compared to back when JR moved here 12 years ago. Only American product we had was Bonnie Lee popcorn basically chuckle.gif

It's ok, we learned to make substitutes such as marshmallow fluff and graham crackers and such important things. We have pop-tarts and jello now! scream.gif

The Euro Bon-Bons are more authentic, and I'm sure Ostrich feathers are still available over there so JR can don a loincloth and fan you as you sit on a crushed velour sofa.
