I’ve been to many different grocery stores, Shop Rite, ACME, Trader Joe’s and even Dollar Tree Stores along with the food section at Target and Walmart but I’ve never been able to find pear slices or halves in a resealable jar. They all have pears in cans but not in jars. I can find peaches in jars, I can find fruit cocktails in a jar, I can even find mangos in a jar. But I have yet to find any type of pear in a jar.
Why is that? Am I looking in the wrong places? Are grocery stores the wrong places to look? Is there some specialty store where I should be looking?
So, why don’t the fruit producers have pears in a jar? Are pears not a fruit? They can put diced, slices, and halves of peaches in jars. Also, pineapple chunks, slices, and diced in jars. They even provide maraschino cherries in a jar.
Why pears in a jar? Convenience. What if I wanted a slice or two, or maybe just one half. With a jar I can take what I want and reseal the container with the unused portion. With a can I can’t reseal it, I have use all of it. Sure, I can cover the open top with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. This, however, does not completely seal the container and will still cause a mess if it tips over.
So, if anyone knows where I could buy pears in a jar I’d appreciate hearing from you.
