I’ve been out of bread for weeks now. I just never buy it! I’ll usually buy a loaf at the local health food store, keep it in the freezer and maybe finish it off in a month or two.
I usually buy the Food For Life Ezekiel bread or any other type of sprouted grain bread. Yesterday I decided to purchase a new brand just to spice things up.
I didn’t bother to look at the price (mainly because it was hidden) I just figured it cost the same as the other spouted grain bread; $4.00 -$5.00, so I grabbed it. As I walked around the store I managed to grab a small quinoa black bean salad and then waited in line for check out.
As the cashier was scanning my two items I realized that the hemp bread was priced at $8.49.
That is nearly $9.00 for a freaking loaf of bread.
I thought about telling him that I changed my mind and that I did not need the bread anymore but I just couldn’t. This is one of those times where it sucks being the nice guy girl. It sounds really stupid, but I just couldn’t do it.
The whole drive home I kept thinking…
“I seriously just paid over $8 for a loaf of bread. That is more than I make an hour! Who on Earth would charge this much for bread?!?! …Probably because idiots like me buy it, I bet that’s it. Maybe I’ll return it? No, that’s stupid. I should have looked at the price first. This better be the most amazing bread I have ever eaten.”
Needless to say, the first thing I did when I got home was try a piece of this over-priced bread.
It was good I guess….
Still not worth almost $9.
I will never buy it again, that’s for sure!
