Well, what do you know? There were several close calls, but no actual storrowings this weekend on either river road, at least as far as we could tell. One of the close calls came late tonight, when the driver of a Stop & Shop 18-wheeler, who you really would think would know better, started to turn towards Storrow Drive, before realizing the goof and backing up, as Ari Ofsevit shows us.

Pumpkin-spice coffee pods in Jamaica Plain

Look what Patty spotted on the shelves at the Jamaica Plain Stop & Shop yesterday. Have you taken your first long walk through the crisp air and fallen leaves of fall?

Better rush down to the Hyde Park Shaw's before all the Halloween candy is gone.

Jackfruit in a Roslindale supermarket

When we walked into the Stop & Shop on American Legion Highway in Roslindale this afternoon, one of the first things we saw was this giant fruit thing (how could we miss it?). Turned out it was a jackfruit, and at just $1.49 a pound seemed a bargain, but we resisted the temptation because, really, where do you put something like that?

By the time we were finished shopping, the store's sole jackfruit was gone.

Big Dig ice cream

Sure, Brigham's no longer exists as a company, and the Big Dig's been over for awhile now, but you can still get Brigham's Big Dig ice cream at the Stop & Shop on Truman Parkway in Hyde Park.

Colleen Cressman notes:

It's the only quart-sized ice cream that'll take you over 15 years to finish.
