FRICKIN' ROTTEN STRAWBERRIES

I am seriously so pissed. I'm sick to death of buying produce that literally goes bad two days later. I bought these strawberries two days ago and I went for them today and came across this...


MOLD. Why?! Am I doing something wrong?

I don't live in a city or anything, but I definitely don't live in farm country either. The area I live in is very beachy (I'm 45 minutes outside of Virginia Beach) and so it's not like I can go to the strawberry stand down that long dirt road or anything.

But I'm seriously really sick of wasting my money on rotten produce. I was actually really excited to go and devour these things, but alas, I can not.


OR CAN I?! Ew. Okay, no.

  3. allie, i was sorta tempted to because i have this delicious cream cheese dip i wanted to dip them into, but i didn't.

    i ended up buying more strawberries from another more EXPENSIVE, more UPSCALE grocery store just now. hopefully they won't steer me wrong.

  5. same thing happens to our strawberries! and we get them fresh from an organic food co-op. i don't know, sometimes i think by the time they make it to us, they've been around for a while...

  6. Maybe I'm just super cheap, but I've been sold rotten produce and I took the remainder back to the store with the reciept and requested that they replace or refund. No problems. Seriously, they shouldn't be selling you rotten stuff.

  7. i got some "green bags" at a health food store that work really well. mine came in a pack of like 5 or something for like 3 bucks, and you can just rinse them out and reuse them. theyre good for bananas and lettuce, zucchini and other stuff too. I also buy berries and freeze like half of them or whatever i know im not going to eat soon. theyre not perfect when thawed, but its better than wasting money!

  8. Believe it or not..Kroger and Food Lion have the best fruit variety I think. Levi and I eat a crap ton of fruit everyday now. I literally go to the store three times a week for it..so I would check out Food Lion down by us..it's got a great selection. We went to Farm Fresh and were amazed at the lack of choices they have.
