Whole Foods sucks/Tofutti rocks

Okay, Whole Foods doesn't completely suck, they have really friendly employees, but I'm really pissed at them. First, I special ordered a case of Eden Foods buckwheat soba noodles. They called me yesterday to tell me they were in. I stopped by tonight to pick them up, but they couldn't find them. I was at Whole Foods tonight for almost an hour. The chick who came to tell me that, "Sorry ma'am, but we can't find them" tells me that I should call when a manager is in and talk to him. Well, that won't really do me a whole lot of good because it was a manager who called me to tell me they were in! I asked her what exactly I needed to do to make sure someone would be able to find them the next time I came in because I wasn't too keen on making a special trip across town - again - with gas at $4 a gallon. Gah!

Second, Whole Foods has decided to stop carrying Tofutti "ice cream." What the heck?!?! There is exactly one - yes, that's right, ONE - type of vegan "ice cream" that is any good, and that would be Tofutti. There is exactly ONE vegan "ice cream" that is creamy, and that would be Tofutti. So, these buttheads decide to stop carrying it?!?! I am so angry. I left my name, and they are going to call me. I'm going to get everyone I know to call and complain and hopefully we can get them to carry the one and only good vegan "ice cream" again. They, of course, sell their own brand, which is as hard as a brick, but creamy Tofutti they stop carrying. Ridiculous.

Tonight we had "brinner," so nothing really to report. I took a picture of last night's dinner though to add to my "food porn" collection. Trey has really been missing hot dog buns. We've found one type of veggie hot dogs that are gluten free, but we've yet to find a good hot dog bun. When I was at Vitamin Cottage yesterday I saw that Outside the Breadbox makes a hot dog bun. I decided to buy a pack, so we could try them. As much as I would like to write a good review about them, I just can't. They didn't have a bad taste, but they were really hard and dry and fell apart as soon as I cut them open and put stuff in them. This deejay on the radio was talking about having a hot dog in a lettuce leaf. She was doing it because she was on a low carb diet, but it actually sounds like a good idea. I think I'll try that next time. I had my veggie dog with ketchup, mustard, dill relish (because sweet just sucks), sauerkraut, hot peppers, tomatoes, and celery salt. I also made french fries with cashew cheese, and giardineira.

Unfortunately I think you're in the minority regarding Tofutti ice cream, which is probably why they're not carrying it anymore. I've never cared for it's "beany" taste, though it is smooth, as though it is always in a state of perpetual melting. The Tofutti ice cream sandwiches are pretty good though, but also summer from extremely quick melting. Tofutti's other products rock though IMO! Especially the pizza.
