One Big Promise

I might be an idiot.  This hasn't been confirmed for sure, but I made a discovery today that has led to me believe it's possible that I am really dumb.

For years, my grocery store has carried Nature's Promise products.  I buy them all the time, especially when it comes to meat.  You can't get me to buy any other brand of meat, actually.

This week, there's a sale on Nature's Promise chicken and Nature's Promise Organic chicken.

Wait, WHAT?  There's a difference?


Suddenly, I have a choice between Nature's Promise chicken and Nature's Promise Organic chicken.

This is where the problem comes in.  I can't remember if I used to think that Nature's Promise chicken WAS organic, or if I knew it wasn't but was willing to believe it was better quality and less tampered with than the chicken further down the row.

I actually stood in front of the meat and had this mental conversation and near breakdown because I. Don't. Know.  I don't know if I knew or it if this is news.

And if it's news, this is a REALLY BIG DEAL  because I've been paying extra for this better quality chicken that isn't!

If I already knew it was 'natural' and not 'organic' then whoo hoo, I can now get 'organic' if I so choose and it's n big deal.

Unfortunately, there is no way I'll ever know.  And I feel a little resentful toward Nature's Promise.  Because I might have been stupid enough to fall for their sly advertising that might have led me to believe there was goodness in their products.

  1. I've always been convinced that nature's promise is a farce. That might be a foul joke...
