Most of us go grocery shopping with the same list, week after week. We know what we like and what our families like, and we buy those things. It’s a habit. Not necessarily a bad habit, but a habit nonetheless.
What that means is that we get used to the same tastes, day in and day out. So much so that when we go to restaurants, we don’t know what to order!
So here’s an idea: why not, once in a while, take a step away from pasta night or ham-sandwich lunches or cereal for breakfast and try something new? Challenge your palate! See if you might discover something that you never tasted before—and that you like?
Bliss Shurfine Food Mart carries all sorts of exotic grocery items. Check out cheeses and meats in our deli that go beyond your usual order. Travel abroad in our international food section. Check out tropical fruits in our produce department. Try something that you’ve never tried before, and see if it doesn’t perk up your weekly grocery shopping as well as your menus!
Don’t know what to try? We’re here to help! Just ask any of us: we know our foods, and chances are, we know you, too, and can help guide you to just the right “new” thing to try.
In the meantime, here’s a fun look at some of the things that French people put in their grocery carts every week: see how different our lives are!
