Grocery Shopping with Jack


Why does a trip to the grocery store take me four hours? 
Because there are so many interesting things to see...

I'm a jerk sauce? No, you're a jerk sauce!

 We have officially run out of potato chip flavors.

 If they had these when I was drinking a lot of beer, it would have been very bad news...

 Thank you, Science.

 Look at that serving size. Did you ever open a can of Pringles and eat that many? Me either.

 Too easy.
 That's how I like my bun. Spiced!

 Better eat this before it goes bad. Oh wait... expiration date is March 2075.

 My mother shoved about a thousand of these down my gullet when I was a little kid; don't worry... I'm planning on feeding her Alpo when she's really old.

 A good source of Omega-3 Gummi Fish Oil.

 Not sure I trust something that rhymes with "poison".

Did you know that they still make Hungry-Man frozen dinners?

 They're not bad for you either, as long as you don't eat anything else for the rest of the day.



 Little known fact: the first name I came up with for this blog was "Jack Mackerel, Fixing a Snackerel."

 I look on the can to see how many actual moles are in this and... you're not gonna believe this... there are no moles. THERE ARE NO MOLES!

 Mmmmmm... mushy. And dry.

 I love kicking back with a cold can of creamed rice...

 Ummmm... no.

 How convenient! Now I don't gotta juice my own clams.

Oh, look. Italian toothpaste. Fancy!

 
I don't remember signing off on this... 


THE DAILY SCALEY
A gain? That puts the "weak" in "weekend"...

  1. Those are some awesome finds!
    When I first moved to Japan I took lots of food pictures. Seeing this makes me want to start again!

    1. We don't have as many varieties of Whale Jerky as you do in Japan, I bet.

  2. HOLY COW on the grocery trip AND that label. I am a label reader even if I read it already - they change things & don't tell you! No surprise there! Drives hubby crazy! ;-)

    Ups & downs - weight is funny that way - sodium, liquids, stress & more effect it. DON'T let that little up get to you.. just keep moving along & hang in there!

    1. I've become a notorious label-reader, too. It's the "serving size" that gets you more often than not...

  5. You have a great market! I don't remember seeing most of that stuff where I shop. It must be behind the times. I remember the Hungry Man Dinners from the old days when nobody looked at the calorie count or the ingredients. How did we live this long?

  7. You are not allowed to let a one-day fraction of a pound scale gain affect your mood in any way. As a daily weigher myself, (simply out of curiosity as I am not trying to lose weight), I can attest to frequent daily swings of three or more pounds (even regardless of how consistent I make the weigh-in routine).

    1. I really don't like weighing every day because I really feel pressure to exercise and eat right... oh wait....

  8. No I'm going to have to go shopping with an eye for the unusual!

  11. I am nearly crying over here! And I don't think I've ever seen over 1000 calories per serving on a nutrition label before!
