    It's dumb. Kinda like sticking tortillas on a different aisle from the rest Memzican food.

    They should put Mexican food in the toilet paper aisle.

    tomato paste is a thick, concentrated tomato product. dinkus tip: when cooking chili or other sauce with tomato paste, brown the paste to develop the sugars. it adds a ton of flavor over just adding it in without browning it.

    for sure. i hate that. mexican food is in the "ethnic food" aisle here. :jj:

    if we all shopped on bikes there would be no gridlock.

    Oh, there's a lotta Memzicans in Colorado. So they get their own aisle. Except for the goddamned tortillas.

    There's a health food aisle with all the bobs red mill. Why they put the whole wheat pearled couscous in the canned food aisle is beyond me.

    Actually you just disproved yourself.

    Tomato sauce is in the pasta/pizza aisle. Which makes sense, just as tortillas make sense being in the Mexican aisle.

    Other tomato products (which are used for a variety of things as opposed to almost exclusively being paired with one type of food) are found with the other fruits and vegetables. I think it makes perfect sense.
