CVS Sucks, But Grandma and Taco Bell Make It All Better

I went to CVS under the premise that they would have their sale items in stock. What a joke. They had almost nothing on my list. I was so angry that I actually left my items at the checkout. Who's the guy in charge of inventory? You'd think they'd say to themselves, "Well, since we put item X on sale this week, we had better order more." Because that would make sense. Rather than every single time I go to pick up something that's on sale, it's not there. Losers.

So I decided to give this mom-and-pop ice cream place called "Grandma's Ice Cream Shop" a try since I was denied the new Oreo Cakesters that were on sale at CVS. (Slap a 'new' sticker on it, and I'm there. This was a double whammy though since I will do almost anything for Oreos.) So I walk in and first of all, they boast 24 and more flavors of soft serve. Just like Lake George! I was so excited. But I knew soft serve wouldn't make it home well and wouldn't travel well since I had also planned on hitting Taco Bell. I amble up to the counter and they actually had a bakery-type display case. And lo and behold they had treats - a dollop of soft serve on top of an oreo or a tiny brownie and then dipped in that Brown Bonnet stuff. I was elated! I ordered one of each and plan on laughing out loud at CVS when I eat them.

Then off to Taco Bell. Say what you want about it, but I like it and it makes me happy. So I order my food and pull up to the window. The pleasant guy at the window takes my money and then says, "Did you have a good day? You look very happy." I said, "Not particularly, but I did just get ice cream!" He responds with a smile, "Well now you have some Taco Bell too!" That just made my afternoon.

:-) I keep seeing those oreo cake things on sale...I was hoping you'd say they were lousy or something! But what are the chances?!? :-0 :-0 :-0

Oh man. Oreo could come out with anything and I'd buy it. I love them. I can't buy regular packages of them since I can't contain myself. I limit myself to purchasing those little packs with 6 cookies in them. They're so good.

As soon as I get my hands on some I will review them!

The magic word....Oreo. I love those things. Doesn't matter how they serve them up. They are my absolute favorite. When Jake was little I used to hide the Oreos on the high shelf inside a mixing bowl.
How wrong is that? To hide the cookies from a little kid? In my defense, he ate like a Hoover.

Oh. My. God.

Oreo cookies are definitely food of the gods.

I HATE CVS.

I love that you had two delectable treats in one evening and that the Taco Bell guy was super nice!

I love me some cheesey potatoes from there...and can nibble on a soft taco as well. Good times.

Don't you know I was SO suckered into buying those Oreo cake things today when I was shopping with Buddha. Those things are NOT small, yet my two year old stuffed a WHOLE ONE into his mouth and refused to give any back.

I watched him as he slowly chewed that chocolately goodness! Good times!

Crabby - It is a magic word. Luckily, I have a ways to go with this little one before I have to resort to hiding anything. The small little to-go packs do the trick with me now!

BG - Buddha's smart. I certainly wouldn't be giving back any oreo!! (How are they? Worth the hunt?) I say, ice cream and Taco Bell solve most of life's woes.

Pissy - Oreos are my downfall. Each and every time!
