Helpful Hints from joeeze: When it's 104° in the shade, ask for paper, not plastic


This seemingly obvious no-brainer tip appeared magically in my mind's eye yesterday as the checker was starting to ring up every known Edy's frozen bar iteration known to man, including but not limited to:

• Açai Blueberry

• Pomegranate

• Strawberry

• Tangerine

• Pineapple

• Coconut

• Lime

You may have not have noticed, but "Paper or plastic" is over.

At least, that's the case at Kroger and Giant here in Podunkville.

Paper grocery bags, as you will recall from your high school physics class, have better insulation properties than ultra-thin plastic.

Thus, frozen things will thaw more slowly in paper — especially if packed tightly and in a large paper bag — than in standard-issue plastic bags.

Still, it was SO HOT even with the AC on as I made my way home that I deferred a planned 7-Eleven stop in order to minimize transit time to the freezer.

FunFact: As many people think it's Seven-11 as 7-Eleven.

Then there are the outliers who think it's 7-11 or Seven-Eleven.
