Slide Show: 10 reasons to love an ABC store


Picture 1 of 11

Ahhh, there's nothing quite like a well-stocked ABC! And we do mean an Adventist Book Center, and not those pretender-to-throne types found all over Hawaii. Sure, both kinds are chock full of tchotchkes and doodads, but only at an Adventist ABC can you leave with a feeling of righteousness about your purchases, instead of creeping guilt over the 10 boxes of chocolate-covered macademia nuts that you know full well you are going to eat yourself instead of giving them to friends and family back home like you told yourself you would.

  1. Thanks for reminding us that Little Debbie’s are health food. They must be, since the ABC obviously wouldn’t sell any junk food. So I’m going to stock up on those ultra-healthful Nutty Bars, with their delectable serving size of 2 cookies which have “only” 310 calories, 18g of fat (including 7g of saturated fat), and 21g of sugar. Never mind that it’s enough sugar to kill a cute little laboratory rat; it’s health food and it’s good for me. After all, it’s just sugar, it’s vegetarian sugar! And it’s at the ABC! (But what I can’t figure out is: why did my sister go from a size 3 to a size 16 dress after joining the church and stocking up on these yummy health foods? 🙂

    Stripples! Fake Bacon! I haven’t seen Stripples in . . . by the way, why do Adventists feel the need to eat Fake Bacon? Why do vegetarians feel the need to eat Fake Meat?

    This is very puzzling.

    Maybe we should ask Dr. Freud?
