Sardines: Not so much on this side of the pond
The last time I was in Paris, I brought a few cans of sardines back with me
because, while I can get pretty much anything in New York, including these really good Portuguese sardines
I picked them up last night for 50 cents a can because the store is discontinuing them.
I guess we’re not a sardine-savoring society in these parts, but it made me sad. Here’s a food, a real food, that’s inexpensive (even when it’s not on sale), high in protein, iron, calcium and precious omega-3 fatty acids (the stuff we’re all supposed to have a couple of times a week), and it’s going off the shelves.
I didn’t notice any discontinued signs in the chips department.
