What are your Market Basket surprises?

I shop at the MB in North Billerica which is an old-time MB complete with dingy lighting, sawdust floors, and fairly straightforward stock that would appeal to a town that has a lot of traditional Yankee working-class citizens.

Still, sometimes I see something that just surprises me that it would be in this store.

Today, there was the most beautiful eel in the seafood case. It was artfully curved around bags of mussels. I stood there and admired not just the eel but how it was presented.

In the dairy case, pre-made organic guacomole for $1.50 had me scrutinizing those little price tags on the shelf because I felt sure this must be a mistake.

Previous discoveries include pickled lambs tongues which look just like one would imagine,

Have you ever seen anything in a MB that seemed out-of-place and had you wondering how it got there?
