The Monday Peeve 67

Smiles and positive posts are all well and good, but sometimes I need to vent a bit. How about you? That’s what The Monday Peeve is all about, a chance to blow off a little steam at the beginning of the week, so then we can go merrily on our way once again (hah). I’ll pick a topic that’s on my mind, but you can vent about whatever you please, here in comments or on your own blog. Grab the photo, use the TMP tag, link back to me (or not), and Bob’s yer uncle. I do reserve the right to delete any links that offend my delicate sensibilities. So far, none have, but it could happen. I have feelings!

Wow, only a couple more peeves until 2021… and then a whole new year of peevery shall commence. Pretty exciting, no? Okay, so let’s get on with it. Today’s peeve is about things I like… and then they disappear or change form. Not talking about dating, but stuff in the grocery store. It’s so annoying! Years ago I discovered muffaletta (delicious chopped olive mix) and fell in lurve. Over time, it became harder to find until it ghosted altogether. Suddenly, there was olive tapenade everywhere, but that is not the same! Those olives are like pulverized. Muffaletta has pieces of olives; it’s not pureed into mush. The other month I found some and was in heaven… and now it’s gone again. WAAAH! I see it’s available online, but for insane prices. I just want the normal muffaletta for a reasonable price. 😦 This has happened with other foods I love, such as Oreo ice cream. When it first came out, it had luscious cookie pieces in it ~ so large you could taste the middle! But now? It’s all pulverized into nothingness. Meh!

  3. Agreed. I can find some things online but they are outrageous in price or you have to buy in bulk form.

  4. I don’t know why the manufacturers do this, but I wish they’d stop it. It happens with food, and with make-up, too. I find something I like and then it either disappears or they re do it as new and improved – and it most definitely isn’t. πŸ™‚

  5. Or they add ingredients you may be allergic to. Have to constantly read labels.

  6. My Mom had a similar one with lipstick. She would find one she loved and then they would discontinue it.

  11. This happens to me, too. If I find a brand/version I really like, you can bet they discontinue it. ☹

  12. I can’t recall particular examples, but I’m with you on this. I know my taste seems to be different from others, but at some point, it starts to seem personal when the things I really enjoy get discontinued.
