When you adopt a eating clean regime, and you run out of unsalted mixed nuts for your salads and steel cut oats for your breakfast, the best place to replenish your supply is bulk barn.
I walked into the store with the greatest resolve. Steel cut oats? Check. Unsalted mixed nuts? Check. Dried cranberries? Check. Hm. Michael would like some of his favourite sour berry gummy candies. Check. Uh oh. Candy aisle.
Next thing you know, a bag of sour grapefruit slices, Dare super soft Ju Jubes, Licorice All Sorts, Scotch Mints (when have I ever liked Scotch mints? Am I getting that old? Will I have Scotch mints covered in lint in my cardigan pockets?), and ooooh, what have we here? Chocolate malted Easter eggs! Nom nom nom.
bulk barn has several locations throughout Edmonton, and one opening soon in Calgary. I suggest you check out their website at www.bulkbarn.ca for locations and hours.
