NYC aka the big apple… and the city that never sleeps. Flying in on a day forecasted at negative 1 degrees celcius, we didn’t really know what to expect and to put it lightly, it was flipping flipping FLIPPING cold that sent a chill down ones spine and stayed there all day even with bundles of layers on and every inch of our body covered aside from our faces! NYC… we finally made it but boy oh boy, are you cold or what!
The onslaught of photos continue…
Jet blue blue chips made from natural blue potatoes
Not exactly the most “appealing” snack I’ve come across but it sure was tasty. Super crunchy similar to Kettle Chips but with a hint of nuttiness.
Ess-a-bagel – pastrami, sauerkraut, Jack cheese and a pickle on the side on a sesame bagel
Note to self: stick to basics! Didn’t really enjoy this bagel and gave up half way through. You know you’re in trouble when you watch them stick the bagel into the microwave to melt the cheese! Dude, throw it under a grill don’t ‘ding’ it. :/

Macchiato Espresso Bar – we ordered a coffee, took one sip and threw it out. Ick! Americans really don’t know what good coffee is.
