Last Sunday I stopped by a Whole Foods. I think I’ve been in one maybe once or twice before. I was there mainly because I was looking for fish heads to make fish stock. You know, chicken for chicken stock, beef bones for beef stock? On a list I’m on, several people said they were able to get organic fish heads for $1/pound from the butcher at Whole Foods. So I thought I’d give it a shot.
They had just sold the one and only fish head they’d had in the store just a few minutes earlier. So I thought I may as well look around at some other items and see if there was anything I might need to buy.
The thing that still makes my stomach tighten and my eyes water was to see the price of the red and yellow bell peppers. FIVE DOLLARS AND NINETY-NINE CENTS EACH. Yes, I’m sorry for shouting, but this was $5.99 each!!
The green bell peppers were slightly more affordable at $4.99. WHAT?!
My goodness… I can’t even IMAGINE spending that much on a bell pepper. Now Mr. A will buy me a large red bell pepper as a little gift, but he won’t spend more than a dollar on one.
No wonder they call that place “Whole Paycheck”.
Have you ever shopped Whole Foods? Really? Wow. Tell me what you bought there, I’m so curious.
