0. I can find absolutely nothing redeeming in this experience. I bought a spaghetti squash at Food Lion yesterday (the one on 54 near the new Harris Teeter for anyone hoping to avoid a similar experience), and when I cut it open after arriving home, this is what I found:
At first I thought it was mold, which would have been gross enough, but then I saw some wings and bodies that were starting to fall apart. At that point I almost threw up in the sink.
Mom, you’d be proud. I did in fact return it to the store today and got a full refund. I think this is a sign I’m finally becoming an adult, as I used to write off bad grocery store purchases like this as bad luck. Never really thought of them as returnable, but more that I just needed to be more careful when picking out my produce. So there, perhaps there was something of value in the experience.
I’ll give it a 1.
