Two dissimilar packages of the same amount of pistachios

On the left: 16 ounces of Wonderful® pistachios, purchased at Whole Foods for $10.79.

On the right: 16 ounces of Wonderful® pistachios, purchased at H.E.B. for $8.49.

Same amount of nuts. The only differences are the price and the size of the bag.

An error message from

Considering the state of the Randallʼs (Albertsonʼs) and Kroger stores in my neighborhood, Iʼm not surprised that H.E.B. canʼt keep up with demand.

Seriously, how is it possible that every time I go into Randallʼs, itʼs out of milk?

“Chicken paws” for sale at H.E.B.

If your local supermarket sells chicken feet labeled “Chicken paws,” you might live in Texas.

Amazon Fresh, out of everything

Dear Amazon Fresh,

Why do you always show me what you donʼt have, rather than what you do have?

Iʼm not impressed by your selection if I canʼt buy anything. Youʼre just demonstrating the weakness of your supply chain.

I just came out of a Smithʼs-branded Kroger supermarket.

It has vaping supplies, marijuana smoking supplies, a casino, and more aisles of alcohol than it does food.

You stay classy, Kroger.

The Smithʼs deli case

Only one item in the deli case is labeled “Made in the USA.” So, where are the others made, and why can't know?

Whatʼs trashier than a couple of Smithʼs checkout girls talking about how high theyʼre going to get after work?

When one of them closes the lane youʼre standing in and tells the other that sheʼs going on break so she can smoke some weed.

A bad deal at Kroger

Hmmm… $1.50 each, or two for $5.00?

This is why the nuns pounded fractions into our heads in elementary school. So we wouldnʼt get ripped off by Kroger.
