To choose or not to choose

Can you believe being overwhelmed by the amount of choices? After all, have we not always looked for more opportunities and choices? Being bombarded with choices may feel good but the frustration that might result is almost similar to the one we experience when we have no choice at all. The simile is choosing between drought and flood.

If you feel like drinking a hot tea to get rejuvenated, you would be exhausted by just choosing an appropriate one. Apart from the regular black, brown, green , red spanning the entire rainbow spectrum, we now have fruit flavored tea, that too with choice or organic or not.

Forget the tea, maybe a soda would be more refreshing on a warm day in summer. Now you are caught up in choosing between a regular coke/pepsi, orange /grape fanta, vanilla flavored, cherry flavored, herbs flavored and ofcourse calories ranging from zero to the celestial distance between earth and moon. I wonder why have they not come up with chocolate flavored coke?

Speaking of chocolates, that’s once thing I won't complain with the varieties we have. I want to tryout an ice-cream, which is supposed to be chocolate lover's paradise - "Death by chocolate” but first, I have to figure out where it is available. Checkout the link for unusual chocolate flavored items.

I don’t understand why fruits are getting added everywhere. All ingredients for various items ultimately come from Mother Nature but adding fruit in soda, tea, coffee and now soap, mouth wash, toothpaste is just getting too much. Some of the hand lotions smell so good, you are tempted not to taste it else you would end up devouring your own hand.

go to any corner house in bangy, and u can get a DBC... there are lot of otehr places too... :) yeah, i dont complain choices whn it come to chocolate and ice creams. for me, the toughest battle is to choose a toothpaste or soap - i just spend huge amount of time, spoilt by choices...

:--) All marketing. Those people need to do something for the money they earn right.

Seriously, the choices we have are so much that it is confusing.

In order to second the thought, one should try all the 7 teas for the whole week and finally might just end up not drinking tea at all. But then ya world is getting to be more specific and feels like a maze to choose from.

XH: I better come to B'lore soon. If choices over burden you, maybe "ini mini maine mo..." will work ! :)

SK: That's true.

Preethi: Somehow, I still like plain old tea.

Sumana: I don't think a week is enough to try out all the flavors of tea and coffee :)

Suma: Can you please send me across a "Death by Chocolate".

Monika: I have to come to B'lore now. No excuses.

Prats: Will take it up soon.
