One of my mother’s hobbies was grocery shopping I think. Started around the Cuban missile crisis and built from there – eventually there was enough canned, boxed and frozen goods in our basement to last through a zombie apocalypse. I guess I picked at least part of the habit up, but I’m more fascinated by “looking” rather than shopping. I read a lot of labels. Not sure why.
I am prone to picking up things I haven’t seen before if they are of mild interest. Impulse grocery shopping, I guess. Particularly at WalMart, which I have to do on my own, because Mrs. Burgerdogboy refuses to cross their doorstep. Not sure why. Don’t think it’s a political protest. She may feel it’s “beneath her”, which would be hilarious as she has no problem stocking her wardrobe at Goodwill. Now that creeps ME out for sure.
Today’s score was a pepperoni melt in a pretzel roll. $2.48. According to the USDA label, it was made in Valencia, CA, by a company called “Better Bakery” and apparently ‘pretzel sandwiches” are their specialty.
The packaging describes the “sandwich” as “sliced pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, and pizza sauce, hand rolled into a soft pretzel bread sandwich.”
Nuke or conventional oven at 350 for 20 minutes. If you’re a regular reader, you know I always opt for a conventional oven heat, it’s just my thing.
It’s a nice roll, tho I wish it somehow could have a crispier exterior. As for the innards? Really don’t taste like anything. I can’t say if it’s comparable or better than say, a hot pocket, cause I’ve never been brave enough to try one of those.
It’s 10 oz of sandwich, so it’s a better value than most pre-prepared store sandwiches. Would I buy it again? I was drunk, and there wasn’t a nearby White Castle.
