I know a couple of people here in Alabama who've paid to have Green Mtn ship to them (until they met me lol). I also know another guy who sold his stock after the thought "they maxed out," now he's kicking himself obviously.
I knew they bought Keurig which was a brilliant move.
I did not know they bought Diedrich. That's purty big news! I wonder what, if any, changes will happen. Has anything changed already? Do we know any plans for changes?
