You can see lots of amusing, bemusing and very sad things when wandering 'round a supermarket. Besides the customers, I mean.
This made me laugh on a recent trip through the meat section:
Almost identical racks of lamb, they'd simply trimmed the fat from one of them and charged $18 more per kilo for it.
Surely you should pay more for the nutrient dense version? Or is this a new stupidity tax that I'm not aware of?
I s'pose it may have been in place for a while now considering how much those plant sterol margarines and the "heart smart" cuts of meat cost.
No, that's just way too smart for the powers that be. It must be, that in this case, the shop manager forgot to mark down the price of the "extra trim" one - the fattier ones being on sale for the week.
But even considering that oversight - that they think it necessary to go to the trouble of marketing the lean version is concerning.
I s'pose it doesn't matter if you're not subject to this kind of stupidity tax. Two of the cheap ones made for delicious dinner. My wife an I almost made it through one each. Almost.
|Almost cooked - just some fat rendering to do.|
