You don’t know what canned pumpkin is?

Alternate title for today’s post: Why I’m breaking up with Safeway.

Sunday night I ran to Safeway for the sole purpose of purchasing a can of Libby’s pumpkin in order to make some freezer pumpkin spice latte discs.

They had pumpkin pie mix, which contains sugar and spices, but no straight up canned pumpkin. I asked the check-out girl when they would be getting it in, and she wasn’t sure what it was. So I explained, and she was kind enough to call the produce department. I can kind of understand the check-out girl not knowing what the difference is between the two, but the produce department didn’t know either. Really?! Is is just the blogging community that’s obsessed with canned pumpkin?

But that isn’t the reason I’m breaking up with Safeway. When asked when they would get the canned pumpkin in, the produced responded with an if we get it statement. If? IF? Sorry Safeway, it isn’t working out. I’m not sure if it is me, or if it is you, but we’re through.

Luckily, Trader Joe’s set an opening date in the near future, (Oct. 28).


Looks like I’ll be using Rosauers as a rebound for the next six and a half weeks.
