To get myself through the week, I bought some Passover-friendly snacks for work like fresh fruit, carrot sticks and pre-made salads (rabbit food), as well a big bag of TJ’s trail mix (squirrel food). It’s a good trail mix – lots of yummy things like cashews, dried cherries, dried cranberries – but it suffers from the same problem as any other trail mix: not all ingredients are created equal. Clearly the dried pineapple chunks are the gems in the bag. I really tried to consume all of the components of the trail mix at an equal rate, but somehow I have half a bag left and no more pineapples. And now I seem to have lost interest in the trail mix (perhaps especially so now that Passover is finished and I can consume my normal office snacks of cereal and granola bars again).
Why not just purchase a bag of dried pineapple chunks instead, you ask? Great idea. TJ’s used to stock such a wonderful thing, but it hasn’t graced their shelves for many months now. It seems to have gone the way of the turkey burgers (which came and went, and came and went, and came… and now seem to have disappeared again).
(I lead a very exciting life, don’t I?)
