Local Enjoys The Food Samples At Exton Sam's Club.


Do you ever go to Sam's Club in Exton? And you see the people handing out samples so you kind of say, "Hmmm. What do we have here? Don't mind if I do."

Then you try all the samples? And they were all pretty good (except for the hummus) so you go back and get another sample? And another.

Then you're like, "It's almost lunch. I might as well keep this rotation going for a bit." But then you notice the guy handing out the sausage giving you the stink eye so you pretend to be reading the ingredients on a random salsa container? Mouthing, "Oh so it DOES have peppers in it."....

Then you try to go for one last  sample of chicken parm and the lady has to judge you by saying, "Hey weren't you here already?" And you almost say, "Um. that was the other guy."

But you get nervous and leave because who needs their stupid food anyway! (Even though it was good).

SIDE NOTE FOR FRUGAL READERS: Do you know that they have patio furniture right near where they hand out the food samples in Exton? So if you're on a tight budget and you want to take a girl on a date you can bring her to one of the patio tables and say it's a restaurant. (Maybe call it "Sammy's Place?) Then you can just go get the food and bring it to the table. Or ask a friend to pretend he's a waiter. Or maybe YOU can pretend to be the waiter but you'll need a disguise to wear and just tell your date you have to go to the bathroom and when the waiter comes for her to order the "sampler" for both of you". Cost?: $0. You are welcome.

Great minds think.

genius idea.

Fun fact: did you know that Rachel Ray started her career as a food sampler? She would do short presentations with Sam's club food(or some discount warehouse food) and she started to get a following.Pretty soon people from all over were coming to see what Rachel was making.
Now look at her...

Candy - I was not aware of that fact.

Dude. I've *been* on that date. And, I have to say, it wasn't the worst...

Two enthusiastic thumbs up (plus those fancy toothpicks with the little plumes on top!)

If you hit my local grocery store on Saturday night, they are usually passing out vodka samples.

They always try to make me taste stuff when in supermarket and I'm all like ; oh this is special, never tasted anything like this before *does the Monica Geller thing with hand on belly when Rachel tried to cook something*
I'll pretend buying like 3 packs and then put them on the racks again in the next aisle when sampleperson is out of sight :-p
