Our Addiction

So I think it's about time Beth and I let everyone in on our little addiction.....We will do anything to feed this addiction and last night proved just this. Dreyer's Slow Churned Ice Cream is our addiction. The French Silk flavor to be more precise. Last night was just another in our long list of things we must do to get our beloved French Silk on sale. You see, nearly every night while watching our favorite tv shows we each have a bowl of ice cream...Because of our mass consumption, we tend to go through it quite quickly and this requires us to always try to find where we can find our ice cream on sale. So yesterday while I was reading the newspaper I noticed an add for our ice cream on sale at Fiesta. Now most people who don't live in Houston have probably never heard of Fiesta or know what it is. In fact, until last night, I had never even been to a Fiesta...but make no mistake, I will definitely be back.

Fiesta is a grocery store geared towards the Hispanic population of Houston. Typically Fiesta can be found in the poorer parts of Houston. There you can buy fresh tortillas, imported sodas from Mexico, and tons of produce that is grown locally in Mexico and imported. While Fiesta does have a lot of the same stuff you can find anywhere, they have tons of different things that you can't find at other grocery stores. Now don't get me wrong, Fiesta is not nice by any stretch of the imagination. Everything looks like it's straight out of the 1970s and in desperate need of a makeover including the floors, the aisles, the setup of the store, and all of the signage throughout the store. But this is where the negatives end....Our trip to Fiesta last night, to retrieve our Dreyer's Slow Churned Ice Cream for the rock bottom price of $2.50 per half gallon, was great! We went to Kroger just before Fiesta and were more than disappointed by everything so when we went to Fiesta we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything and the prices we paid. Even our checkout girl was very nice and quick(which is way more than I can say for Kroger). As we were walking out, Beth and I looked at each other in amazement as we were both very impressed.

So the moral of this story is not to look at Beth and I for having a problem with eating too much ice cream..Although I can see where that opinion might be formed. The moral is to go out and check out something new...something you may have never gone to or wanted to go to. Who knows, you might actually like it and(gasp!) go back!
