Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think. 

Why go to the state fair when the state fair can come to you?

I don't even know - it $6 a good price for a 3lb butter turkey? Butter is just one of those things that one needs, so I have no idea how much it costs. It goes into the cart, to the register to the fridge, without an iota of thought .

I suppose this time of year, a turkey is the logical choice, though a state fair would never have something so mundane.  One year, the Ohio State Fair had a butter Buster Douglas (yeah (99.98% of you will have to look him up). 

Since our state fair tried to be timely with their sculptures (wait - Ohio isn't the only state to do butter sculptures - are they??) maybe last year or this had an corona virus spore done in butter. Maybe this year - as I have to believe (but don't remember...............or care) if they cancelled it in the midst of 2020's horrific year of deaths. 

Honestly, I think the most troubling thing of these are: they're not even refrigerated.  That can't be good - right?

And it says "Keep refrigerated" right on the box. I can't believe it's real butter. (see what I did there?)

Butter is 499 a pound for Land O Lakes, at least here. I know because my mother thinks it’s greasy and wants the store brand.

My parents come from Toledo (but already in California by the time I came along) and I have cousins who swear it's not Easter unless there's a butter lamb from Stanley's Market on the the table.

Not refrigerated not for me

It's when I see a product like this I think - "Who thought that up?" However, I am not sure I would like to spread Buster Douglas on my toast either. Maybe it's because I am British.
