Simply Bulk, opened nearby, and of course I had to see what was available.
I ogled the cashews and macamias, bought some herbal tea, and spent some time checking out the variety of grains and flours.
It's going to be nice to be able to buy just a little bit of odd items instead of committing to a two- or five-pound bag.
Even better, since this isn't a massive grocery store, I'm betting there's going to be more supervision of the bins, so it's less likely I'll see toddlers roaming around on their own and playing in the quinoa like it's a sandbox.
I took a peek at the candy section, but didn't expect to find anything appealing. But, wait, here's something interesting. Large dark shiny spheres that claim to be peanut butter malted milk balls. I had to try them. I scooped up a small bag of them, and it wasn't long before I sampled. Chocolate, peanut butter, and malted milk flavor mingled nicely.
I have a feeling some of these will get crushed and mixed into my homemade ice cream when summer arrives.
Looks tasty, hmmmmm?
