Sub-zero wind chills? “BREAD AND MILK! GET TO THE STORE!! NOW! WE’LL DIE WITHOUT IT!”
We're currently under a Winter Storm Warning and this was the bread aisle one day prior.
But my question is why? Why those two particular items when you literally have thousands of food combinations that you could pair together?
So we asked the fans of our show...
OK, but so are fruits and veggies. And beer. Gin & Juice. Wine & Chocolate. Well ok, maybe that’s just my friends and family. But you see where I’m going here. There’s usually no shortage of any other food or beverage when a storms a’coming.
Milk and bread are common foods. Yes, I’m not disagreeing with that. But are they the ONLY foods you’ll ever need if you’re stuck inside for a few days?
Also, those do perish rather quickly compared to other packaged items. So if we’re all afraid that we’ll never be able to make it back to the store again for the rest of our lives, foods with even a slightly longer shelf life would probably make more sense.
But the canned vegetables are fully stocked.
There is just no match for our strong desire for Split Top Wheat and 2%.
More valid points but then why is the peanut butter section still full?
Hot chocolate? A few boxes are missing but still enough to go around.
What about the soup?
The soup aisle looks the same as any other day, too.
I hear ya, Chris. Emily, you took the words right out of my… blog.
I just have to laugh and go about the rest of my normal grocery shopping that doesn’t include just milk and bread. But next time you’re at the store and there is a chance for snow, just take a look around. Or maybe just look down into your own cart. It’s a phenomenon that I just can’t quite figure out.
