Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why does the Wyview creamery not sell frozen fruits and vegetables? I always end up having to go down to the one on 9th...

Dear reader,

This article is about fresh produce at convenience stores in Washington, D.C., but I imagine the reasoning is similar: fruits and vegetables require refrigeration, an extra cost that may not be worth it, especially if the store doesn't sell that many fruits and vegetables. Since Heritage Halls doesn't have parking for residents (meaning that residents probably don't have a car), they probably feel more responsibility to provide a one-stop grocery shopping option within walking distance. The Wyview Creamery, on the other hand, seems intended to be more of a hold-you-over-until-you-can-get-to-a-real-store situation, so their inventory is going to be a little more limited.

But don't be discouraged! Perhaps you could be a voice for change on campus! Send an email, make a phone call, message BYU Dining Services on Facebook! You never know. I also found this link to a survey about BYU Meal Plans that you could take and suggest that the Wyview Creamery sell frozen vegetables.

Until then, last I heard, the Ryde still provides a shuttle to Macey's on Saturdays, which might be a more convenient solution for you than the Creamery on Ninth. 

Good luck with the healthy eating!

I work at the Wyview Creamery, and we do in fact sell frozen fruits and veggies. Not in great variety, mind you, but we do have some frozen mixed berries and frozen mixed veggies. Also, we don't have a big freezer and we gotta leave plenty of room for the ICE CREAM!

Sorry, same Wyview Creamery worker. Turns out we are getting rid of the frozen fruit because it statistically hasn't sold well, and the same may happen to the frozen veggies :'( I told my manager's manager that I love frozen fruits and veggies and know that I and other people would buy them - especially if they sell bigger bags. So keep your fingers crossed!
