You may be wondering why I’m doing a blog about HEB. Lemme tell you! Next to Disneyland, our local HEB market might just be the happiest place on earth. And we take 200+ pictures at Disneyland so why not a few at HEB? Hayley and Colin LOVE going to HEB, and, I’m sure soon, Sydney too. And it’s easy to see why. The kids are greeted at the door with a shiny red balloon (although not this time due to a helium storage. Rats). The shopping carts are in the shapes of little cars. It’s as if Hayley and Colin have their own race course through the aisles. And there’s food samples all throughout the store (orange juice, soup, pizza, sushi, tortillas, cookies, ham, crackers, soda, skillet meals, etc.) My kids literally eat lunch there.
And if Hayley and Colin are good, they each get to pick one treat to take home. Hayley was so excited when she found her “Dora cereal” that she did a little happy dance right in the aisle. Check-out is the best part because Hayley and Colin each get two “Buddy Bucks,” which means two spins at the wheel and a chance to win the ever-coveted sticker! Yes, my son likes to display his proudly. Colin was an Instant Winner this time! Our lucky boy received none other than . . . drum roll please . . . a plastic pint-sized HEB container. Yep, a container. Nothing in it. Just a container. I was slightly disappointed, but Colin was thrilled!
