Never in my young life have I seen soooo many “mutant” pumpkins in one place….
These orange thingamajigs welcomed us to the supermarket last Tuesday. I know there are many more bigger, oranger pumpkins out there, but this was a real touristy albeit promdi moment for me. I couldn’t resist taking pics. How about carving my very first jack-o-lantern? Tempting but no thanks. ;)
I wonder though, if pumpkins abound during Halloween seasons, do wedding flowers abound, too, during wedding season. Hmm. Just thinking out loud. :D
We went to the supermarket, H-E-B, which is like the SM of supermarkets here in Texas, purposely to hoard sodas. H-E-B, like most supermarkets here in the US and like our very own supermarkets in the Philippines (SM, Robinisons, Rustan’s and Shopwise) has store-brand products. Think SM bonus. And for a few days, October 2 being the last day, they had a promo wherein they matched the 6 or 12-pack Coca-Cola products you buy (Regular Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, etc.) with the store-brand line of soda. You have to use an in-store coupon and you can only buy one product at a time.
We got the chance to compare Diet Coke with the H-E-B brand of diet soda and I have to say, you can’t really taste the difference. That coming from a loyal Diet Coke drinker! This was last Thursday. It kinda brought back memories of the Pepsi Challenge of the 80s. But I dare say you can really taste the difference there. ;) I took that challenge and chose Coke over Pepsi. Hee hee. Anyway, going back to my story, hubby and I decided to take advantage of the promo and buy some more soda to fill the bottom of our pantry. We bought Diet Coke and Dr. Pepper, for which hubby has developed a special liking. Each 12-pack we bought was matched with a 12-pack Diet H-E-B Original Soda and a Dr. B. We had to pay for the stuff separately though. One product at a time, remember? Hee hee!
Diet H-E-B Original Cola, Diet Coke, Dr. Pepper, Dr. B and some more diet colas
With over 50 cans of soda in our pantry, may I offer you a drink? It’s on me. ;) Oh, I have a question before I go…would you drink an SM Bonus Diet Soda or maybe a Dr. SM? *shrugs shoulders* Just wondering. :P
