The Proof is in the Butter


This is an example of how it should be, when you go to the supermarket to pick up provisions, and there is a wall of one ingredient with countless varieties and brands, in this specific case butter, that greets you.  No margarine in sight, just block after block of deliciously diverse pounds of real butter.  Many quality options to choose from, nothing binding you to that one bland brand,  the same one probably used in prison, that watery pale block, nothing likes it’s golden counterpart.

This singular example of butter for sale in a chain grocery store in South Africa demonstrates the lacking variety in American grocery stores.  There are many simple treasures that we deprive ourselves of because of uniformity and mono-corporations.
