(Most) Anything For A Dollar...

Hello, my full-time employed cool cats... Today, while you were either A) smacking down on the Grilled Shrimp Caprese at Olive Garden for $16.50 or B) fantasizing about setting your cubicle ablaze and escaping the miserable trappings of corporate America, I was putting in hours with the U.S. Census Bureau and, during a break, earning a few extra coins with my mystery shopper gig.

Humility be damned. I visited four delis/bodegas, conveniently located in my hood, to audit ice cream freezers. I looked for appropriate product from said brands below......And then surveyed if a vendor was naughtily stocking product from other frozen treat-makers. In all, it took me about an hour, and I'll pocket $16. Sweet to meese.
