I’ve got two silly things this week. The first is:
“Wake up, Trader Joe’s! Your flyer is over a month old and I need new things to look at! Get with the program. Surely you can manage, once a month, to have a new set of sale items.”
This week the main silly thing is a recipe. The photo they’ve got with this recipe immediately cracked me up. Knock-off Goldfish, knock-off Ritz Bits sandwiches, knock-off Cheerios….this looks like a kid went into the pantry and decided he’s just gonna eat it ALL.
But first, he’s going to take a page from Granny, and Chex-Mixify it with some onion dip powder, butter, and soy sauce, because what salty snacks are known to be lacking is more salt.
I don’t think they even did that part of the recipe for the photo. I’m no photo stylist, but none of those things in the bowl look like they’ve been lightly tossed with a salt/butter slurry.
The recipe section did have some good-looking items, and I think I’ll try the chicken and waffle bites next time I have people over. I mean, I’m not going to use frozen gluten-free waffles, but I’ll follow the general idea. The chicken will also not be frozen nuggets. I guess I’m just a fan of their plan to put food on sticks.
Grocery Theory post tomorrow. Cheep Cheep!
