People lined up around the corner to buy ham. Is this a thing? I mean, I know that ham and Christmas is kind of like turkey and Thanksgiving, but is it common for people to line up on Christmas Eve for it? Or are these just your average late shoppers? Oh, also—are stores like this open only for the holiday season or are they open all year?
(Yeah, I know, taking a picture of the rearview mirror while a semi truck is coming towards you isn’t the smartest idea. Let’s just say that I didn’t win any Nobel prizes this year, okay?)
I don’t know how old this post is but this is normal for my job (HoneyBaked). I’m not sure why people try to buy hams the day before a holiday but they do. Also, we’re open year round, we have sandwiches. ^_^
Two years later, my questions are answered. So buying ham one day before a holiday is a thing. And the stores are open year-round. Who knew? (Except for HoneyBaked Ham employees, that is.)
So this exists: a special plastic bowl just for microwaving ramen noodles. The Ramen Rater tested it and interviewed its inventor, Chris Johnson:
Johnson told me how he has always enjoyed instant noodles, but the amount of time it took to cook just wasn’t instant enough for him.
"Not instant enough." Yikes. Well, I shouldn’t judge, because apparently this thing works really well and the Ramen Rater gave it full marks. Now I’m torn by whether I should cheer for American ingenuity or mourn the end of civilization over this.
