The big news here is that I have changed grocery stores. After settling on King Sooper’s, I’m making a change to Albertson’s. Yes, Albertson’s is still in business. I think they have 2 or 3 stores in Denver. I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but I do know they got pounded unmercilfully by HEB down in Texas and crawled out of there with their ass in a sling.
But Alberson’s is within walking distance of my my new pad, so it’s worth giving it a shot. But an immediate red flag went up when I saw this pricing scheme:
Wow. That “Homestyle Black Pepper” seasoning better be prety fucking good to justify adding $3.50/lb on to the price. And what makes the Black Pepper more “heart healthy” than the “Santa Fe”? They sound prejudice against Santa Fe and/or New Mexicans to me.
