I made a quick trip to the grocery store during my lunch break today and noticed that there’s a “Grab and Go” section near the cash registers. It’s always fun to look at sections like that to see what people need to buy the most often.
It was a short list: milk, cereal in individual containers, eggs, and chocolate syrup.
Wait a minute. Chocolate syrup is one of the top four items that people need in a hurry at the grocery store? I’m skeptical. Maybe you could be in dire need of some chocolate milk, and there you have the milk and the chocolate syrup right next to each other. That’s semi-legit. But isn’t there anything else you need more than chocolate syrup? What about bread or beer? Both are higher than chocolate syrup on a few lists I found for most purchased items at grocery stores (yes, I actually looked it up).
So maybe there’s a chocolate syrup admirer who works at this particular store, or they’re trying to push chocolate syrup because they have more on hand than necessary. I guess I’ll never know.
And for a little bit more instant gratification, I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do. Figure skating was one of my favorite parts of the winter Olympics as a kid, and I ran across these today in my search for an Olympic update. Check out those facial expressions. Granted, I’d probably be on the brink of death if I tried to do what they’re doing, but it’s still entertaining.
