You're judging me, aren't you?
It's the healthiest thing I could find in the vending machine. See what it says in the upper right corner? It's a good source of 7 vitamins and minerals.
That means it's good for you.
I like pop tarts. They aren't my favorite, but they taste pretty good. Well, ok. Actual pop tarts taste good. Generic brand ones? Not so much. Those taste like cardboard with over-sugared jam in the middle.
I usually like buying generic stuff. It costs less, and it doesn't taste all that different. But even if you are the thriftiest shopper out there, you probably have a few items you just won't compromise on.
Here are mine.
Spaghetti Sauce. I can't do the canned, off-brand kind. It has to be Preggo. Or Ragu works too. For me, there is nothing worse than sitting down to a bowl of pasta, and tasting a watery, bland sauce.
Macaroni and Cheese. I hated Mac & Cheese when I was little. It was so gross and tasteless. I would throw giant fits whenever my mom tried to feed it to me (I was such a fun kid). It wasn't until college that I realized I actually do like Macaroni. Just not the off-brand stuff. As long as it comes in a blue box, I'm good.
Pizza Rolls. These are my weakness. For some people it's chocolate. For Kurt, it's ice cream. But for me? Nothing compares. I am always in the mood for them.
I bought one of those giant bags the other week. And they lasted... not very long. Maybe not even 3 days. Or they might have been gone the next morning. Who can remember these details? Kurt never even knew they were there.
I don't buy them very often.
But when I do buy them, I always get the brand name. I tried the other kind a few months ago, and they were awful. Really, really gross.
So there you go. Those are my brand-name must-haves.
What are yours?
