Safeway Pandemonium

food comments edit

I went to Safeway to stock up my fridge at work and get some lunch.

I only go to Safeway, at least on this side of town, once in a blue moon. How come every time I go there’s either construction in the parking lot or they’re remodeling the building?

Apparently, this time they’re putting in a Starbucks. Because there aren’t more Starbucks outlets around here than there are 7-11 stores.

While I was shopping, I realized there’s something they don’t sell that they should.

How come you can’t buy fried eggs?

I mean, in the name of convenience, they have cooked chickens, sliced cheese, and microwave breakfast sandwiches, but if I wanted to buy a fried egg, I’m SOL. They could come in round Pringle-style containers. You could buy them in three varieties - solid yolk, liquid yolk, or (for the health-conscious) no yolk. They could even have spin-off products: poached eggs, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, etc. All you have to do is put ‘em on a plate and nuke ‘em for a protein-filled snack.

I’ll have to think about this some more.
