Additionally, their famous $1.50 hotdog and drink special (I've tried it) is a loss leader just to keep people in the store longer so they will buy. I can see a baker doing something like this if they had a tremendous item that kept people in the area for more sales.
Hi Millard,

I love a good sample!

It also reminds me of Gordon's "White Bread Post"...

"GIVE ME A SAMPLE… And give me a reason to come back, again and again."

Best wishes!
