bloom :: internationallyCorrect (Sorta)

June 25, 2007

so i’m out at my local bloom the other night to pick up tortillas for my wife to make her famous chicken tortilla recipe for a party she’s going to the next day.

as i have mentioned in other posts, bloom is owned by the same company that owns food lion and about a year ago they revamped a bunch of food lions and turned them into blooms.

one of those food lions was less than a mile from my house, and it was one of the ones that got changed over.

(search keyword *bloom* on my blog and you’ll see just how happy i’ve been with them)

well one of the few things they got right(ish) was the organization of the store.

case in point :: in the old food lion, candy and diet supplies were not only the same aisle, they were on the same side of the aisle – right next to each other.

that was the old food lion

this is the new bloom

right where the old candy/diet aisle used to be now stands the proudly retrofitted *international* foods aisle, with each region neatly denoted by a cute little street-sign looking thingy above the top shelf.

so where do i find my tortillas? in the hispanic section, of course . . .

. . . which is located right next to the mexican section.


i kid you not, the aisle has a mexican AND a hispanic section

side by f*cking side

either the f*cktarded company is just plain schtoopid or that aisle is cursed

    We have an “american” section at most of our grocery stores.

    We eat the same darn cheese in a can and ho-hos that americans do 🙂

    Although, I have never (ever) had cheese in a can myself. . . .

    an american section in a canadian store? n i c e

    i didn’t even know america could claim to have an original ethnicity

    we certainly have no original foods.

    pizza – stole it
    hamburgers – stole em
    french fries – c’mon man, the name says it all.
    potato chips – okay, we did invent that one (leave it to an american to invent a way to eat refried fat drenched in salt with as little actual food included as possible) – i’m still waiting for the world to slap us with a class action lawsuit
    chicken nuggets – we might be responsible for this food-travesty as well
