    Avocado toast. Millennials are literally buying this instead of houses. Oh well, more houses for me.

      But they still won't be able to afford a house if they stopped eating avocado toast and unsubscribed from their favorite subscription(s). So they try to make the best with what they've got and do what they can.

        You underestimate how many subscriptions some people have. Spending $50 on several streaming services and Spotify is one thing but there are people who spend over $500/month on various services. That on its own isn't enough to buy a house most places, but it can be enough to put someone over the top to where they need to be, especially if they're already paying high rent.

            One doesn't have to watch them all, your guests do while prancing around in bikinis do. Haven't you ever listened to Opie & Anthony? $500/mo is nothing to folk making tens if not hundreds of millions per year, that be like one of us nobody's dropping a penny and not picking it up.

              I'm talking about people going broke from them. If you're rich then sure, why not.

              Subscriptions aren't just streaming services.

              What else would it be? All the software a normie would ever need has a FOSS alternative. Physical product subscriptions just sell you stuff you could order direct from supplier anyway. Again, if you're already rich it makes sense for convenience, but there's no point otherwise.

              Women subscribe to weird shit like makeup subscriptions. Then there are gym memberships, software services, "farm" boxes and stuff like Blue Apron. It all adds up quickly even if you don't use them.

              Out of those "gym" is the only one a normal young person should have. The others can be purchased in 20 years when your stocks and bonds mature.

        >Millennials are often thought of as a generation of renters, but their home ownership rate is catching up to generation X. In the coming years, they may become the first generation since World War II to reverse the trend in declining home ownership.
        Millennials are doing fine but outrage porn is lucrative so there's no shortage of doom posting about them. Almost all of the difference between Millennials and other generations at their age is due to declining black home ownership.

              no, no. they're right. drinks can account for insane amounts of profits. the big earner isn't the $60+ tomahawk ribeye. it's the $14 a shot whiskey/$130+ bottle of wine. soda, the bags of the syrup plus CO2 is costly but most places charge $3-5 for soft drinks (depending on taxes and whatnot)

                remember this: alcoholic drinks have great shelf lifes, making inventory management trivial and spoilage low
                food is much trickier, even with freezing

                Vintage bourbons, tequilas, and whisk(e)ys are all more prone to spoilage than rums or brandies, which is a contributing factor in their exorbitant price increase compared to rum or even cognac

              Yeah, the soda itself is cheap as frick compared to the cups. The electricity to run the fountain costs more than the soda.

          Go the food van route. Brand and design it to look deluxe don't make it look like. Shitty taco truck for drunk people. Have medium profit prices on the foos and bulk buy cans of drink. if you make good food you'll be getting lines of people and will be able to expand to a second truck and so forth.

    Burgers. There was a time when most burgers costed 5-10 dollars, even the independent burger restaurants and they tasted pretty good. Then the neckbeard hipster burger chains started opening up and everyone started charging double for needless add-ons and fancy types of breads and meats, when simplicity has always been better.

    Yall are missing the point of OP's question. The essence of the Five Dollar Shake is that although it SEEMED ridiculously expensive, after tasting it Vince was forced to admit that it was much better than expected, he was legit impressed, although in hindsight he still wasn't sure if it was really worth the price. It's undeniably expensive, but just delicious enough to suggest that maybe the price is worth it, somehow. With that in mind, imma say:
    >pizza from one of our famous regional pizza joints
    >almost $40 for a large pie, even without tip/delivery
    >but frick it's tasty
    >FRICK
    That's a once or twice a year proposition, we hate the bill, but wow that pizza is gone quicker than a Youtube video questioning a certain American ally's genocidal agenda, "poof", it's gone, it never existed, wow.

      Adjusted for inflation, using US government data, that five dollar shake would now be $10.54, but keep in mind that food, especially at restaurants, has been going up in price faster than general inflation. It would be like someone today ordering a $19.50 shake compared to 2024 McDonald's inflated prices.
      More importantly, when the movie came out, gourmet shakes and ice cream wasn't really a thing. Most people only had shakes from places like McDonald's and ice cream from Baskin Robbins. A McDonald's shake around that time was a bit over a dollar.

      Gourmet is likely a matter of what's not in it. Here are the ingredients for McDonald's shake base
      >Milk, Sugar, Cream, Corn Syrup, Natural Flavor, Mono And Diglycerides, Cellulose Gum, Guar Gum, Carrageenan, Vitamin A Palmitate.
      and for the vanilla flavoring

    There’s a place near me called Pete’s drive in. They got these milkshakes that are 7$ after tax they’re really fricking good makes Dairy Queen shakes taste like dogshit by comparison and, they got these crazy flavors like pin-a colada and black liquorice. the best is root beer. That’s today’s equivalent
