Whole Foods loves doing ridiculous things. It’s almost as if they’re testing us to see how far they can push the limits. And they keep crossing the imaginary line of how much insufferable hipster sh*t we can handle.
Remember when they were selling $6 asparagus water? Seriously, if I wanted water infused with vegetables, I’d just pour the water that’s been soaking my dishes for the last three days straight down my gullet.
How about the fact that they sell vinyl records in select stores? Nothing says, “I’m a big-time, genuine music lover” quite like an impromptu vinyl purchase to accompany your cantaloupe.
Whole Foods’ most recent culinary blunder came after a tweet by regular person and bacon lover, Nathalie Gordon, featuring a picture of $6 packaged, peeled oranges went viral.
