That's right. Pepperidge Farm Goldfish SOFT Bread -- of the cinnamon variety, if you please. It all started when my daughter spotted them at one of our thrifty grocery stores. She was on a kick with them for a while -- and then she gave them up cold turkey. I don't even know what to tell you about that. I mean why, oh why would anyone willingly give these up? Being the good homemaker that I am [*cough], I couldn't let the leftovers go to waste -- and now I'm hooked!
They are quite simply "delectable." Not in the gooey P-Dub cinnamon roll fashion or anything. I did say QUITE SIMPLY. They are a nice subtle cinnamon, but I think it's the texture that gets me. My favorite way to enjoy them is lightly toasted, with no toppings.
After I realized
I feel like I'm swimming upstream!!! Now, I can't even find these in the regular grocery stores. I have been sad, sad, sad -- and a little "in withdrawal" I suspect.
And then it happened. One day I walked into a regular grocery store, spotted one lone pack on the shelf, and did the unthinkable...
... I paid full price!
And if I'm honest, I can't say it won't happen again. But, I won't give up "fishing" at the thrift grocer. I never know what good stuff I might catch there!
Do you have a thrift grocer?
What about a thrift bakery? [We used to have a WONDER Thrift Store nearby. I don't need to tell you that tale.]
What do you do when you can't find a particular food product that you've been enjoying? Shop online? Talk to your store manager? Give up?
Have you ever heard of HometownFavorites? It's an on-line site for hard-to-find groceries. We've ordered some things from them in the past. They didn't ask me to tell you about them, I just thought I'd throw this information into my Fish Tale.
Okay -- I'm done with all this fishy folderol. But from now on, if I leave a note saying "gone fishing," you'll know exactly what I mean. I'm outta bread.
