So, last night on my soggy walk home from German class, I made what is becoming a weekly pit stop in the local Whole Foods.
I must admit, I am torn about this. Whole Foods, unlike my local Pathmark grocery store, is not a unionized workplace, and I feel almost intolerably bourgsie when I walk around buying things like hazelnut oil and whole grain sushi. (This feeling of Bourgsie Doom was compounded last night by the fact that I got in a conversation with a random bystander about ramps, ferchris'sakes)
However, on this day, as I stood in front of the freezer case, I came across something I have never before seen in the United States:
JesusMaryandJoseph! I think I let out a little chortle of joy, right there in the Whole Foods.
So, I came home, fried it up in a pan, and ate it with my whole grain sushi and a beer. I must admit, I can't remember what real bratwurst tastes like, as I probably ate my last one as a youngster, but the fake brat was surprisingly spicy and....lecker!
How did this happen? Am I just the last half-german vegetarian in the USA to know that Boca started making veggie bratwurst?
