So, since I'm in places like Goodwill and The Salvation Army and The Mission Thrift Store and St. Vincent DePaul's quite a bit; I come across a lot of odd things. Like the above food product. Yes, they are peanuts. Are they made in Japan? I'll have to go back and read the fine print; but I doubt it. Peanuts: again, yes. But they have a shell. Not their original shell; but like a candy shell, except it's not sweet. It's a shell coated with chile dust and a hint of lime. And the sensation of eating one is as strange as you might imagine. It's the kind of food-stuff that could grow on you to the point where you craved them and HAD TO HAVE THEM. Fortunately, this has not happened to me with "Japon Fuego Nuts"(!). And I say fortunately because these came from Big Lots. Big Lots actually has like, a gourmet and specialty food aisle. Also international foods; which is where the Japon Fuego Nuts were discovered. But you can't get addicted to any food you get at Big Lots, because if you go back for more, it will more than likely not be there. Which is probably why it ended up at Big Lots in the first place: because they're not making it anymore.
Now I apologize in advance for this being a lousy picture; but for some reason, it was the only one that registered on my phone, and I took like five pictures of it...(I just got a smart phone a year ago, so, like yeah) anyways, it was a painting of "scenes," I guess, from Pulp Fiction. Here is most of it (John Travolta got cut off):
Anyways, I thought it might be fun to post this random weirdness, which I will do in future blogs.
