My scene partner, Andre, from last month’s acting class told me about a great place to buy groceries. He said, “It’s like Whole Foods, but much, much cheaper… it’s called SPROUTS”
Today, I finally made the trip over to the one in Burbank. The first thing I noticed was the bulk foods section. It reminded me of the days back in Vancouver, when I used to buy bulk candy with Randy at Cub Foods, which was later named WinCo.
I did the same thing at this store, buying a little bit of food here and there.
Here’s my receipt.
I bought some ground beef, which I haven’t done in such a long time, and some other items for a burger. I plan to use the Burgerville Sauce I have before it ‘expires’ later this month.
I don’t want to spend too much time typing up all my thoughts, but I bought some Chia seeds on a whim (they were $5 for a bag) and just now spotted a couple recipes on Pinterest I’d like to try. Now that I have an idea of what they sell, I’ll be able to craft a proper grocery list next time.
Some items I probably won’t get again anytime soon though.. the licorice was pretty expensive (next time I’ll buy some of the gourmet Root Beer flavored kind) and that chocolate covered honeycomb was a bit too hard to be a replacement for a Violet Crumble bar. And even though I enjoy retro stuff, peanuts from the shell kept coming out all smashed. I don’t know how that is even possible!
At any rate, I’ll be back again to shop for chicken at some point. =)
