actually a report from new year’s eve, but close enough.
sorry to report that the two new(ish) items i picked up were, at best, a meh: the only variety of blood oranges available, red raspberry from sunwest (2 pounds for $3.99), weren’t awful — just nothing special. and the criollo chocolate was actually quite good, but not @ $2.99 for less than 2 ounces (50 grams), which works out to almost $30/pound.
and note to self for next year: try to avoid shopping on new year’s eve. just a few of my staples not available:
double cream gouda; meyer lemons (think there may be supply chain issues. got a bag in early november, but nothing since); and i still cannot believe that almost a week after christmas, there was not a single pound of unsalted butter to be found — not one!
