For some months now, the Fresh Fruit cart has made an appearance on one of the streets near work and we have been almost daily visitors.
It just occurred to me as I typed that that I wonder just how much money that effin' cart has gotten from me!
The cart is run by these two Asians. The girl who mainly handles the money is a cutie. She recognizes us when we come along and how could she not? We tip them every time.
The guy, who is less friendly makes pretty damned good smoothies.
But like every good cart, it has its shadiness. The shadiness makes the smoothies taste even better probably.
There are fan-made Naruto characters plastered all over the cart. They're all chibi and they hang from pictures of fruit. It's not the only series borrowed from and most hilarious to me is the famous Misato picture of her enjoying swigging back a cold one.
Of course, the picture has been altered to represent a smoothie in hand rather than the trademark beer. In no known universe would Misato be so excited to be drinking a smoothie. No way.
Other shady dealings with the cart include the cups we get our smoothies in sometimes.
The first time we went, the smoothie cup had a franchise name on it for a smoothie and fresh fruit company.
The second time it had Regal Cinemas on it.
Every other time after that the cup has been some completely unrelated and I am wondering if a crap load of cups fell off the back of some trucks, hence the reason the smoothies are so cheap at $3.00 for a 16 oz.
It may also explain why the girl will sometimes draw a smiley face on the cup. It's there as a ploy to distract me! It's all a ruse to make me think she remembers me and is friendly for a bigger cover up!
Whatever the case may be, the Smoothie cart wins and the colours from the blended fruit are beautiful.
Drinkable fruit is good stuff.
