Few adults enjoy grocery shopping (though one of them is on our team here at TPH!)… but it’s even more of a chore for kids.

Maybe you remember following mom around as she wheeled the big cart, full of all kinds of stuff — except the boxes of bottom-shelf junk food you kept reaching for, to which mom (wisely!) said no.

It seemed like it took hours, right?

And now that you’re the grown-up in the situation, you know it’s not much better for mom!

Kids Get a Free Cookie at the Publix Bakery

Good news if you live near one of these southeastern grocers: Kids get a free cookie at the Publix bakery, just for being a kid on a grocery shopping trip.

Kids can choose from chocolate chip or sugar.

Just walk up to the friendly person manning the baked goods case and ask!

That makes grocery shopping just a little bit sweeter, doesn’t it?

Your Turn: Do you shop at Publix? Have your kids ever gotten a free cookie at the bakery?
