Do you ever wish you could get your money back for every stupid purchase you ever made? I do. Sometimes I imagine the thousands of dollars I would love to have back - spent on stuff I never really used - or even wanted in some cases.
So today I give you the gift of never having to spend the following $17.95:
Starting with this purchase from Costco.
Looks good, doesn't it? I was imagining the fruity taste of mangos on my tacos, in a salad, maybe even with some pork roast - right?
And it's delicious if you like a little 3 Bean Salad With Extra Vinegar and Salt.
I tasted it right before I served it, and though I almost gagged, I just went ahead and put in on the table, hoping that if I bluffed my way through, everyone else would just eat it and smile and say how delicious they thought it was.
Ummm, not so much. This garnered a rating of 5 rotten mangos ( on a scale of 1-5).
Everyone in my family thought it tasted like puke. Which I realize sounds pretty harsh. (But not really harsh enough for this product. )
I really wanted this Costco offering to be good,
but as much as I continue to wish for it, there is just no substitution for fresh avocados. None. And with this, you get not just one, but 3 (three) packages of the gooey green (un)goodness. I give this a rating of 3 rotton avocados. It was edible, but certainly not worth spending your hard-earned calories on.
And finally, this:
has been sitting on the shelf in my cupboard for so long now I can't remember when I bought it. Actually I do remember that I got it free with a coupon. I had 2 bottles, but after trying the first bottle, I'll never open this one. I'm throwing it out, because I wouldn't even wish it on the homeless at the next canned food drive. Nasty stuff.
Now you can say you saved $17.95 today and justify going out to dinner. You know, to celebrate being so good at saving money.
