095 Chicken Base
LeGout is French for The Taste!

Chicken Base is an essential for any kitchen. It's the flavor that begins any savory philosopher's dish! Just ask for a case of Oh9five!

Tell 'em Louie LeGout sent ya!

~SPOTTING TRENDS~

Spotting Trends... ePhilosopher9's Morning Coffee Thoughts

for July 10, 2010‏

I find it odd how the mind of the internet works. Whilst surfing the net this morning for a picture of famed chicken base cartoon character Louie LeGout, to no avail as of yet, just after a few clicks here and there, I ran across a link to the Top 25 Bestsellers in Grocery & Gourmet Food. I was amazed at the results!

At the top of the list was various types of coffees. These took up the top five spots!

~I guess Gloria Jean in Timothy's World are all Coffee People~

So starting to read down the list of items, I'm thinking, "Oh, ok, now I see. People like to buy coffee over the internet. I see how this is going" ... there is some internet yuppie-related cyber-gourmet coffee-cafe purchasing-phenomenon taking shape here. That makes sense, people drink a lot of coffee, and kona is a long way to fly to get coffee, as I eased into my second cup of the morning's urge to type of my observations. But then, I nearly spit-taked my liquid beans whilst reading further down the list, to my surprise, the top bestsellers in grocery and gourmet food took a wild twist and an unexpected turn! To my surprise, rounding out the top ten on the list are various kinds of diapers, with a baby-wipe thrown in the mix at number ten!

The pampered baby bottom contingency has shown that it's a force to be reckoned with! In a race for market share, the need for inexpensive internet diapers has shown up strong, sweeping the list all the way down to number thirteen of the Top 25!

But ... isn't this catgorized... under Food? I see they threw the word Grocery in the title to throw us off. But Seriously, Have Diapers Become A New Gourmet Food?

Not to be forgotten, coffee makes a strong return in the number fourteen position in the Top 25, flooding the list all the way down through number seventeen, with even Emeril's mug showing face at, Bam!, number sixteen!

Ahhh the strength of coffee cravers! Diapers detailers got nothing on 'em!

But wait... what's this at number eighteen?!?!? A Newcomer?!?!?! COCONUT WATER! Could it be??? Yes, that's right, folks. Smack dab in the heat for supremacy between diapers and coffee comes that super-spoiler of the ages... 100% Coconut Water! Glory be, where in the world did this notion come from?

Must have been an anomole... back to the list.

Diapers make a huge comeback to strengthen it's stronghold supremacy over coffee as the most adored on the top 25 list, sweeping numbers 19 thru 22.

Coffee attempts a slightl rebound, coming in at number 23, but Diapers quickly squashes it again at number 24. This is a tight race!

And finally, drum roll please...

The Award for Number 25, on the Top 25 Bestsellers in Grocery and Gourmet Food, Mr. Insignificant Himself: "O.N.E. Coconut Water!" Congratulations!

So, do you see a trend here?

It could have global ramifications, if you're thinking what I'm thinking.

Not to mention the coffee grinds in your diaper being washed off by 100% flowing coconut water and the imagery that it invokes. Not to mention the triple-entendre of the loose categorization of Gourmet, Grocery, and Diapers. Not to mention the mentality of those people in the market who buy these things on the internet, and the demographic therein. Not to mention that the notion that the majority of people must be coffee craving babies who occassionally have a coconut water 4% of the time Not to mention those who buy Grocery and Gourmet Food on the internet. Not to mention the keyword Best Sellers. Not to mention who came in 26th for honorable mention.

Seriously, do you see a forming trend here? I'd really like your opinion on this serious topic.

Sincerely,

ePhilosopher9
