TTMMGH – Korea edition #13

Hmm…look at the picture.  It’s of an ordinary shelf in the grocery store (one near our house).  See anything interesting?


Well, aside from the Korean writing on the packaging – do you see anything a little peculiar?


I did!  Let’s take a close up view of the bottom shelf in particular.


Yes, my friends – that is butter and margarine – right next to the ketchup and mayo.  Of course!  🙂

The other stores I know of around here (that even sell butter), definitely store it in the refrigerated section.  But not this particular mart. 

It’s not that I think it’s a sort of health threat (I know many people who keep a butter dish on the counter so that it’s soft and spreadable), but let’s keep in mind – the temperatures of late have been in the high 80s to low 90s (that’s Fahrenheit).  It’s freakin’ hot outside and in a lot of places inside like this store (no air conditioning).

Well, next time I bake something and am in need of softened butter – I know just the place to go. 😉

    Those packages are margarine (not butter)… I’ve never seen margarine refrigerated here. Strange.
