For the past five years of living on my own I’ve been quite loyal to Festival Foods when it comes to grocery shopping. Sure, I’ve tried other grocery stores, but I always end up coming back to Festival. I went to two other grocery stores today and once again Festival won out!
I stopped by Aldi’s to pick up some basic kitchen staples – flour, sugar, chocolate chips, etc. They had very little of what I needed. I never did find chocolate chips. I know Aldi’s has items that come and go, but really, chocolate chips? Who doesn’t have chocolate chips?!
After Aldi’s I still needed cream of tartar and chocolate chips so I decided to try out Gordy’s County Market – a local grocery store that apparently has good “pump perks” for gas. No thank you. I did get to sample some wine and cheese, but I couldn’t find anyone to help me. Well, I found two guys who worked in grocery, but neither one could find cream of tartar. I gave up. I left my basket of chocolate chips sitting there. I wasn’t grouchy at anyone, but I had to get back to work and I didn’t have time to wait around for some college kid to attempt to find a little jar of cream of tartar!
So, once again I have tried other grocery stores and Festival Foods came out on top. Later this weekend I’ll be going to Festival to pick up my chocolate chips and cream of tartar – both of which I will be able to find without any assitance because I have the whole stinking store memorized!
