Disappointment: Now Less Fattening

I love me some avocados.

Like, to the point of mashing them on my gluten free toast every morning, even though they pack about 25grams of fat into one little bastard. And even if they are not even remotely ripe. I just rip the sh*t out of the bread and still try to mash away.

Anyway.

They keep getting more and more expensive at the grocery store, but I needed my fix, so I bought a bunch at full price.

I opened one of those babies up... to see this:

Perhaps it's the universe telling me to STOP EATING SO MANY GODDAMNED AVOCADOS?


Now, I know you probably don't give a rat's ass, but that is a pretty crappy pit-to-actual-edible-avocado ratio.

Seriously.

Really.

I feel so ripped off. I guess I should be glad there was less fat in my belly?

  1. your grocer should be ashamed of themselves for selling such disappointing avocados. From one addict to another - THEM PITS BETTER BE IN RATIO

  2. Either that is the littlest avocado in the world, or that is the biggest pit. Total crap.

    I am also an avocado addict. It's got the "good" fats that make you skinny (apparently). And they taste better than butter on toast.

    1. @Leauxra - Seriously, the pit was goddamned HUGE.

      Yeah, they aren't making me skinny. But maybe that's more the fault of the Skittles and chocolate?

    2. @Leauxra - WHAT?!? I'm pretty sure there would be gluten in that.

      They need a Skittles vodka cooler! Mmmmm

  4. I love me some avocado. In dip. In a salad. Gaucamole. (I probably didn't spell that right.) But I had never before considered putting it on toast. Once again the gaps in my knowledge are demonstrated.

    1. @Keith - I tell you, man, a nice ripe avocado mashed into toast with some sea salt and pepper is DIVINE. You have to try it at least once!!

  5. Mmm...avocados. Although that pit totally food-bombs your morning (and the photo).

    We actually have our own version of avocados in Florida that differ from the Hass variety. Simply put: Florida avocados are HUGE and just a tad sweeter than the Hass.

    1. @Barb the French Bean - I saw a ginormous avocado at the store the other day and wondered what it was. Perhaps it was a Floridian avocado?

      I worry I'd eat waaay too much because I could and I wouldn't want it to go bad.

    1. @CarrieMarie - I know!! I ended up eating two of them to make up for the mass lost to the pit!

  7. Holy buckets. That's a lot of pit. Too bad there isn't a way to find that out before you open them. Bummer.

    On the bright side, at least they're good fats!

    1. @blissflower1969 - I know. I should find an x-ray and scan those babies before purchase.

      And yes, good fats, but still fats. If I don't cut out OTHER fats, that's not good. Still too much fat in my diet.
