It’s upside down. So what?

I livew in my own little world

One of my goals for delivering people for Uber and delivering packages for Amazon is to discover the nooks and crannies of San Diego County, the places where I have not been and probably would not go under normal circumstances.

With Amazon’s Prime Now service, I get to go to restaurants and stores that I definitely would not have gone to because I’m so stuck in my rut of a routine.

Yesterday, I had some pickups at Northgate, a Hispanic food market.

As soon as I walked in the door, there they were, two of them calling my name, begging me to take at least one of them home.

But I was working, on a time-sensitive delivery, and the register lines were long long long.

I couldn’t take time out to buy one.

Well, this morning, I went back to Northgate.

There they were, about forty of them, each wanting to go home with me.

Well, one did:

Pineapple downside up cake

Trust me when I say it doesn’t look like that anymore.

25% of it is gone. Poof! Like magic! Gone, gone, gone….

….and good, good, good.

As they might say at Northgate, “Bueno! Bueno! Muy bueno!”

I’m not a big fan of cakes, for the most part, me being a pie person. But I do love my pineapple downside up cakes.

My question, though, is, Why does a Hispanic food store have forty pineapple upside down cakes while regular grocery stores like Vons, Albertsons, Ralphs, Kroger, Food4Less, etc., have nary a one? Does Northgate buy them all before the other stores wake up? Do Hispanics really eat pineapple upside down cakes like that? Hmmm. Maybe I have some Hispanicity in my background that I’m not aware of….
