This muumuu-clad bandit is on a mission to take home some turkey, but there's one problem: She hasn't practiced waddling with a 10-pound bird squeezed between her thighs. So when the time comes for her to tip-toe from the meat department to the store exit, the turkey comes tumbling to the ground. So much for sanitary eating, eh?
Playing with one's food is discouraged at the dinner table, but I guess it's fair game in the produce aisle. While most folks use a touch test to select their melons, this chick holds a soccer try-out. If the melon can withstand a knee tap to a headbutt to a goal shot, it's good!
A surveillance video caught this woman shopping for more than groceries. She poured a bottle of olive oil onto the floor and intentionally slipped on the resulting puddle. Her trip didn't land her an injury, but it did give her a messy slip 'n slide of a ride. "Dumbass cleanup on aisle 5!"
On June 26, 1981 one of the world's craziest coupon-clipping excursion occurred. Virginia Campbell of Mountain Home, Idaho is reported to have purchased $24,460 worth of groceries for only 67 cents! I don't know what's more impressive, the fact that she got it for practically free, or the fact that she needed $24,460 worth of groceries! Either way it got me wondering, do you use coupons when grocery shopping?

I read this article about how food shopping is relaxing and had to agree. There's something very therapeutic about walking up and down the aisles and picking out new things. So how about you? Do you like food shopping?
Ladies, looks like you better stop sending those guys to the grocery store. Turns out they're overwhelmed.
A recent report, creatively entitled "Men in Grocery Stores," discovered that men shop inefficiently and never ask for help (I could probably insert some stereotypical male joke here, but will leave the laughs for GiggleSugar).
Unlike female shoppers, males give more thought to convenience than price and are more likely to hone in on a specific product, ignoring the rest of the aisle and "circling back" to get items missed the first time. However, if they can't find it, then they just don't need it.
Many men have difficulty finding items, forego buying rather than risk purchasing a substitute for an item on the grocery list and hesitate to ask for help if they can't find an item.
What do you folks think? Ladies, does this describe your guys? Guys, does this describe you?
Hannaford Brothers, a grocery store in New England, has created a unique guide system called Guiding Stars that rates the food in their stores based on its nutrition.
Guiding Stars uses a formula that credits a food’s score for the presence of vitamins, minerals, fiber and/or whole grains and debits a food’s score for the presence of trans and/or saturated fats, cholesterol, added sugars and added sodium. The resulting score determines whether the item receives 1, 2, 3 or no Stars and all you have to do is check the shelf tag. The more positive attributes the product has, the more Guiding Stars it will receive. To put it all very basically, the more stars on a product, the more nutritional. I love the simplicity of the system.
I think it is a great concept as it is a lot less controversial than the traffic light labeling on packaging in the U.K. but still takes the majority of the guess work out of food shopping. This would be great if more mainstream grocers got into the star system.
Lost in the grocery store? Not anymore.
Check this out. It's still being developed, but it's great knowing that people are working on a computer interface with LCD screen that's attached to the shopping cart. Talk about high-tech food shopping.

Looking for organic ketchup? No problem - it'll help you locate items too in the maze of ailses. I know when I'm wandering down aisles looking, I pick up a few unnecessary snacks along the way and get frustrated because I can't find what I'm looking for.
