for instance, my breakfast this morning was a nice little surprise. i've been eating Pop-Tarts for breakfast recently since they're so easy, not extremely fattening, and qualify as a "hot" meal (vs. the ease but coldness of cereal/granola bars and the difficulty and time-consumption of eggs). there also happened to be a "buy 1 get 2 free" deal at ShopRite a few weeks ago which also helped my decision. i purchased a box of vanilla, strawberry, and grape.
as we (meaning me) made our way through the boxes, someone decided to consolidate the remaining Pop-Tarts into 1 box. great idea to save space, but now you never know which flavor of Pop-Tart you're picking up (in case you haven't had a Pop-Tart in ages, they come in these spacey-silver-neoprene looking wrappers. you can't see anything inside). i've been receiving a run of strawberry, so, this morning, when i put my Pop-Tart in the toaster, i assumed it was strawberry.
this could be strawberry or vanilla flavored, right?
operating under my assumption, i was genuinely surpised when i opened the toaster oven door and vanilla wafted out towards me.
a genuine, and pleasant, surprise.
