Canonical snack

Between meals yesterday: not even close to a handful of Organic Raw Walnuts ($4.85 for 3.5 ounces from Tierra Farm, Valatie, New York). First thought: how much is that per pound? (A shade over $22.) More amusing was this warning on the bottom:

“Contains tree nuts. May contain shell fragments.”

I knew some guys in the Army who seemed to be nuts, though it never occurred to me to ask if they contained shell fragments.

Also in the shipment: dried apple rings, and two varieties of raisins, one of them covered in dark chocolate.

    “May contain shell fragments” is a four-word horror story to someone with fragile teeth.

    For what it’s worth, I haven’t found any. Yet.

    It’s never the ones you SEE, though.

    True that; it’s not like they’re easy to spot visually.

    Nor difficult to spot dentally. (Yeowch).
