Weird Unrefrigerated Frosting Being Pedaled at P-Chops Lately.
Has anyone else noticed this insanity at our local P-Chops? Around any given holiday you start seeing these containers of "Buttercreme" frosting in shockingly bright hues (red for valentines, green for St. Patties, etc...) displayed in the yogurt isle. I included the picture above lest you think that I was conjuring this all up in my wee twisted mind. What seems weird to me is that the frosting is sold unrefrigerated in plastic containers which you might otherwise put a salad in, that is to say, not especially airtight or anything. You would figure that the stuff would go nice and rancid. Here is the label to include pricing.
That is 3.99$ American for 31 Ounces of apparently shelf stable frosting!!! Who on god's green earth needs nearly two pounds of vibrant green or yellow butter-creme frosting for St. Patrick's day? Are there people out there in the Capital Region baking and frosting life sized cake Leprechauns? For some reason I am picturing a lonely woman bellied up to a tub of this stuff with a spoon and a glass of milk, which kind of makes me shudder a little. Anyways, just wanted to bring everyone a little Friday night randomness. I trust everyone will have a splendid weekend.
