Cantaloupe = rich

Cantaloupe = rich

posted in Uncategorized |

As he scooped out his cantaloupe this morning, Handsome told me “I know it’s weird, but whenever I eat cantaloupe I think of rich people.”

After I asked for some clarification he said that he has always thought that people that could afford to buy cantaloupe regularly must be rich because it’s expensive.

In NZ, cantaloupe (or rock melon, as it’s more commonly called) runs about $3-4 for a melon. Definitely not cheap for a fruit that will be devoured in one sitting by our family.

I asked him if he felt the same about strawberries and he said no. I told him that when I was buying strawberries in NZ I was paying up to $2.50 a punnet (basket) and I always bought at least two at a time, so was really paying the same amount of money.

Fortunately for us we got some really great cantaloupe from our CSA farm a couple weeks ago. It’s the middle of the season and we paid $8 for four. Although definitely more expensive than canned fruit, infinitely tastier.

There is currently one response to “Cantaloupe = rich”

Why not let us know what you think by adding your own comment! Your opinion is as valid as anyone elses, so come on... let us know what you think.
