Cry Of The Thwarted Consumer

Whole Foods (or whatever their Market store calls itself) can just do something anatomically improbable. I show up there seeking solace in food. They have wine. They have cheese. They have chocolate. I seek ice cream. Fine. They do not have any of:
  • Ben & Jerry's Vermonty Python
  • Dove Ultimate Chocolate (or any Dove ice cream at all)
  • or even the ultimate standby, Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
I mean, come on. A weak selection of Ben & Jerry's. A miserable selection of Haagen Dazs. Then a bunch of pastel-colored designer organic crap I've never heard of. Yes, I understand that's the point of Whole Foods or whatever - but if you're going to stock Ben & Jerry's and Haagen-Dazs, for fuck's sake do it right.

Defeated, I retreat sulkily clutching a pint of The Gobfather, a wedge of Spanish Manchego, a warm baguette, some spicy turkey salami, and a spoon.
