Come for the bargains

Stay for the freshness, especially the pineapple:

Sparkle Markets operate in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

(Found at, which has lots of similarly inexplicable newspaper clippings.)

    I vaguely remember Sparkle markets from my time in Ohio. There wasn’t one in my town, but there was in the next town over.

    I don’t remember the “special” pineapples though.

    I would buy so many pineapples if one of our grocery stores ran an ad like this. Unexpected marketing should be rewarded.

    I’d have to break out the Cheetos and watch.

    All the pineapples I’ve seen at Kroger and Publix have been perfect gentlefruits.
