Old People Food
I got my first cantaloupe at ALDI the other day ($1.49, up from the $0.99 it was for a while) and I strongly approve. I think I shied away from them cause I thought they were hard to slice. I don’t know why I thought a melon that turns soft as a tomato after a week at room temperature was hard to cut, but I did.
I think I also shied away because I think of cantaloupe as old people food.
You know? How you associate some foods with old folks? I haven’t seen anybody under 70 enjoy:
- Fried fish
- Coffee-flavored ice cream
- Black licorice
- Jell-O with anything but fruit in it
Am I the only one with old people food connotations? What do you think?
