Produce Test – SOCS – Product/Produce


Produce Test – SOCS – Product/Produce


Our Stream of Consciousness prompt today is the words product/produce. Thanks, Linda!


When I need some fresh vegetable or fruit, I don’t say I need a produce product. I just name the item I want, like I need some apples, or potatoes, and that’s that.

Then, there’s the photo of some vegetables sitting on a shelf (below the surveys sign) at the grocery store. I just thought it was funny/odd, because of the little sign over the produce, which says ‘produce test’. There was no other explanation. The fruit and veggies looked fine. I suppose it was to show how a fresh one is to look, but sounded like they were in school, being given a test! I had the clerk, who was working behind the customer service counter, take the photo for me, with my phone. She was nice to do that. 🙂

Imagined conversation between produce:

Mr. Green Pepper: Hey you on the right … Mr. Garlic … What’s this test for?

Mr. Garlic: I’m not sure, but I didn’t study for it.

Miss Nectarine (to the left): I didn’t study either, but I’m cute, so I’ll pass the test.


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. A cute conversation in the produce section 😊 I chuckled at the words ‘produce test’ due to the fact that customers seem to think it’s okay for them or their children to test the product before paying for it. I can only imagine that sign would give them permission and at checkout (example: grapes) would weigh in at far less cost.


    • Thanks, June! Glad you liked this. Oh yeah, I remember ‘testing’ things like grapes at the store before buying them. I wouldn’t today though, because I’d rather wash them after getting them home. Reminds me of those perfume bottle ‘testers’ you can try at the store. 🙂
