A big thanks to Carol Harvey for taking these pictures at her local Trader Joe’s earlier this week. They have signs in the produce department pointing out the alleged nutritional benefits of various fruits and veggies.

3. Lastly, vitamin D is zip, unless lots of bacteria are on the outside making it. Yuk.
Thanks Carol, for correcting one of the signs
Someone at TJ’s has been listening. As a result, the signs have been changed:
