I promise I won’t write any more about the Kraft Macaroni & Cheese recall. Well, that is after I put up this post.
When I was down at the corner of happy and healthy yesterday afternoon (Walgreens/Covington), I noticed they had boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese on sale—99 cents per box. This led me to have a little fun with the cashier. I was having fun, but maybe she wasn’t.
Me: “I see you got Kraft Macaroni & Cheese on sale.”
Cashier: “Oh, I don’t know. Let me check the flyer.”
Me: “You know, Kraft has just recalled over 6 million boxes of that stuff.”
Cashier: “No, I didn’t know.”
Me: “Is that why it’s on sale? Are you trying to get rid of it so you don’t have to send the boxes back?”
Cashier: “Why, no. I don’t—”
Me: “Some of those boxes you have on sale may contain metal shavings”
Me: “Really. I guess Walgreens is thinking there is no additional charge for the extra ingredient. In fact you’re giving us a discount!”
Cashier: Blank stare.
All right—I had tortured the cashier long enough. I left the store.
On the way home, I thought maybe I should have told the cashier that Walgreens should know that selling Kraft Mac & Cheese with metal shavings in it isn’t happy and isn’t healthy, but I didn’t feel like going back to the store.
