it felt so wrong, it felt so right

First my local Sam's Club gets me hooked on Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce by offering free samples of it with cream cheese on a cracker. Then they run out of it and don't restock. Same with my bottled water. Now they have replaced the salad I eat every day with a more expensive gourmet version.

Because of all this, I have a confession to make. I cheated on my regular Sam's with the Sam's Club on the other side of town. We were over that way on Friday to see an ABBA/Batman double feature at the theatre inside Knoxville Center Mall. It didn't take long to discover that the other Sam's also carries Taylor Farms Garden Gourmet Salad (now with green leaf lettuce and radicchio) instead of the more affordable stuff I had hoped for. Things got better fast when I found plenty of Raspberry Chipotle Sauce and Deer Park one liter bottles. I put three bottles of one and two cases of the other in my cart. The different Sam's had done well by me.

No sooner had I gotten home from stocking up on my current favorite condiment when an email arrived from Fischer & Wieser. They are offering one free bottle of their newest flavor, Roasted Blackberry Chipotle Sauce, with any online purchase until July 31. Maybe I can make a little more room in the pantry.

Update: My west side Sam's has restocked the Raspberry Chipotle Sauce. It looked to me like it just came in last night or this morning.

Also, instead of paying $4.44 for three pounds of "gourmet" salad, I bought three pounds of shredded iceberg lettuce for $3.24. Only a month ago I was paying $3.17 for three pounds of regular salad. And that was after it went up from $2.97 or so the month before.

Good news: My Sam's Club has started carrying regular salad again for less than a dollar a pound.

Bad news: They haven't had Raspberry Chipotle Sauce for months.
