Moldy Strawberries

Filed under: Good Eats,issues — sara @ 6:54 pm

Harris Teeter had a great sale on strawberries the other day, two for seven dollars, which isn’t the best deal ever, but better than full price. What pissed me off is that I couldn’t find a single container of strawberries that didn’t have at least one or two totally fucked up strawberries in the, much less two. I did find a container that had three strawberries that had turned to mold so I then started searching for someone in the Produce Section that I could bring these tainted berries to their attention.

After walking up and down the aisles for over 5 minutes I finally found an employee that was pretty embarrassed to see the condition of the containers that I had discovered. She went in the back and brought out a couple of racks of strawberries, that she claimed had just came off of the truck for me to pick two from to take home and was full of apologizes.

The very next day I reached into my refrigerator to get out the two containers of these wonderful strawberries to cut up and use some for dinner. The rest I planned on washing, cutting and freezing for future use, when I noticed that both containers had several berries that had been totally covered with this nasty assed mold. Boy wasn’t I pissed off to find this shit and immediately found my receipt, got the phone number of the store off of it and gave them a call. I was nice about it, I found out a long time ago that being a bitch right off the bat rarely works to my advantage. All of I have to do is take the receipt into the store and ask for Michael and he will gladly make sure that I get my money back. I think I’m done with strawberries for a good long while now.
