At the Market

Velvet posted about an overheard conversation at her local supermarket and I thought I would post about my eavesdropping at my local Trader Joes.

Trader Joe's is a gourmet food store but with incredibly low prices. They save money by having manufacturers private label food just for them.

As I was working my way down the nut aisle, I overheard a woman inquiring from one of the helpful workers as to where the Quadratini had moved. I'm sure you've all had wafer cookies with that sugary, icing between the layers... usually vanilla. Trader Joe's version is lemon. It is a tart and sweet and crumbly wonderful thing! Very addictive.

The worker explained they had discontinued it. (They do that from time and time!)

The woman's response: "Well, I guess I'll just take up crack cocaine then."

LOL! I feel the same way about Keebler Chocolate Chip Pecan Sandies. Gotta have 'em every day!

Janet, Those sandies were my uncle's addition. I loved knowing where his stash was and he loved sharing...

Velvet, Isn't it a great line? I feel the same way about the Quadratini!

My cookie addiction is the Girl Scout thin mints. I order a ton each year. I couldn't get any here in South Korea so I'm craving them.
Holly, we are leaving tomorrow for a mini vacation to Jeju Island, I'll call you when I get back. I have lots to talk about.
