I have shopped at Fry's before, but it's been a long time. I was reminded of a few things that are much different about Fry's than Walmart Market:
- Shoppers at Fry's are in no hurry. For example, there was a woman in the frozen foods department who spent close to five minutes trying to decide between two of the exact same brand and variety of pot pies. I know it was this long because she was blocking the doors of the frozen dinners I wanted to buy. Her dilemma it turned out: One row of the pot pies was slightly larger and 20 cents more than the other. That sort of thing happened all over the store. It's a leisurely stroll through the store kind of shopping experience... which sucks when we just wanted to get the stuff we normally do and jam on home to watch Bar Rescue.
- They have a bunch of merchandise at Fry's other than food. That's helpful I suppose if you need kitchen related stuff in addition to food, but it takes much longer to get through the store and the aisles are narrower in Fry's as a result.
- Fry's has an organic foods section. Who needs that?
- Prices are higher.
- My cart had a limp.
In the end, I still got food for the week and didn't die from the experience. It was fun to go someplace different, but I still prefer Walmart Neighborhood Market.
|Candy Cane cookies.
It must be the holiday season.
|Donut House Chocolate Glazed Donut coffee
This is truly a marvel of modern technology:
Putting donut flavor into the coffee.
I love how the window behind the woman's
head on the box says "Nut House"
|Hershey's, Almond Joy, Mounds pudding.
This totally looks like an invention
created by a stoner.
|Fat Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches.
They're "thick and creamy".
Sounds like a date I've had.
|I bought the A&W root beer float
ice cream topper.
It's freakin' amazing.
|Air Wick Cinnabon.
My bathroom now smells like
the food court at the mall
after I take a dump.
|Nothing says "Happy Holidays"
like masking your poo odor
with frosted vanilla cupcake delight
|I know that "Frozen" movie is all the rage,
but it seems like Pillsbury is trying
waaaay to hard with this cookie dough.
|Olive buffet at Fry's.
This would move up to the level of awesome
if it was next to a martini buffet.
