  For those of you living up north, did McDonald's just add the new Chicken biscuit to the breakfast menu or is that just in the south?  If so, its pure breakfast heaven - on a biscuit.

i hate mcdonald's, so i don't have an answer to that question. however, arby's and hardee's have had those forever.

I haven't had *fast food* in almost a year. (Have had Panera and Qdoba several times, but those don't count, right?) My b/f is kinda of a health nut and would give me a hard time.

I would order the same thing off the menu at a sit-down restaurant (Say...Red Robin?). It seems less bad for you if it comes on a washable plate and not in a wrapper...

   A buddy and I had a conversation about places like Panera.  Its an attempt at "upscale fast food".  There's a horrible stigma attached to fast food regarding it's quality and hospitality.  There's still a big market for fast and cost-effective, but have you ever heard of doctors spending their lunch at Taco Bell?  I think places like Panera are trying to advantage of all the things that made fast food a huge industry while minimizing the reasons why people eat their as a last resort.  A truly great business plan.

...maybe if Taco Bell had WiFi I would have camped out there on Monday when my net connection was out.  ;)

But they come with a fresh-baked slice of ciabatta, not a stale, chewy bun that's been shipped from [insert far-away place here].

I think we can all agree that there is a time and place for both Panera and McD's...

Coke when you want something spicy with a kick...

Pepsi when something sweet will hit the spot (and there's no DS around)...

I've gotta vote for Panera (or, as it's still known around here, St. Louis Bread Company).  That's mostly due to nostalgia.

Coke FTW!
Diet Coke Plus FTWx2!!

This is correct.  I admit an unauthorized expansion of the abbreviation.
