Foodland of Albertville Alabama (that’s the full name of the grocery store) snapshots last week.

Gallons of JFG Real Mayonnaise, Blue Plate CONCENTRATED BBQ sauce, Pickled Smoked Sausage, Cheddar Cheese Sauce, La Morena Sliced Green Pickled Jalapeños:

What Allee has to say about this:
These photos kill me. Close-ups of hometown favorites, most foodstuffs of which I’ve never even heard of, are fascinating to behold. Although it’s hard to single out favorites I’d have to say Game Tame, the ever popular pigs feet, the Army size jug of mayonnaise that goes bad after six days and, perhaps my favorite, pickled rope baloney. I almost hate to leave anything else out but those are the immediate standouts. Is the baloney just like a big long uncut sausage?

Pickled Rope Baloney is an excellent name for a band.

I’m not a big traveler but it’s photos like these and others you’ve submitted from your neck of the woods that would get me on a plane faster than even opening a jar of Pickled Rope Baloney, which anyone who knows me well knows I would unscrew immediately.
