In Which I Grocery Shop For You

The consensus seems to be that you all would prefer I pushed you out of a plane instead of dumping you in an ocean full of sharks. Good to know.

I obviously share your aversion to giant creatures who have the ability to bite you in half. Yes, there’s a risk of death by splatter when you sky dive, but A. there’s only a possible chance the chute won’t work while sharks definitely find humans tasty, and B. it’s beyond fun. It’s actually one of the most fun things I’ve ever done.

Anyhow, I wanted to leave you with two products you should definitely try.


Glutino gluten-free pretzels. I’m probably having a no-duh moment but it took me this long to find them, so I thought that, in the event you eat gluten free and have not found these, I wanted to enlighten you.

These pretzels taste like pretzels. Crazy, I know. But it’s always nice to find gluten-free products that taste like the ones with wheat.


Next, for everyone else might I suggest some dried green mango slices? So, The Man picked these up at Trader Joe’s but didn’t realize they have sugar. I accidentally tried one before I realized that, of course. Here’s what I can tell you from my brief moment of bliss.


They are tart.

They are sweet.


They are the perfect snack. Or meal. I won’t judge.

They are addictive.

That is all.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend. What are your plans?

Have you tried the “Just Mango”? I’ve been busy, so sorry if you said you hate them. I love them, though!! And they don’t have any added sugar!

I’m not sure if they’re called “Just Mango” but I love these plain mangoes from TJ’s, too. The green were slightly more tart, which I love. But the plain ones are good, too.

I enjoy making snacks into meals. More often than I should. No shame.


Tracey Reply:

Uh, I do too. And often.

For Memorial Day, I get to realize how old I actually am by attending my little brother’s high school graduation.


Tracey Reply:

Just the thought of high school graduations makes me feel old! Have fun!

Yum!! I wish they made vegetables that tasted like pretzels…I’d be all about salads then! I’ll have to tell my version of “The Boy” about them since he is GF! I am unfortunately all types of flour-free.

This weekend we are headed in new hampshire to visit with his parents and play golf and study since our big exams are next weekend! EEK!

Have fun in NH. And good luck studying!!

Thank you so much for planting the seed so I will find gf pretzels. I’m a real carby snacker, so I need to find more alternatives!


Tracey Reply:

You should try these, all of which are good:

Also, friends just bought me Glutino sesame breadsticks, which are really good. I just couldn’t find the product online.

Green mangoes?! To TJ’s I go!

No major plans this weekend, but I am planning to work on Monday. Albeit a short day – boo.
