Meet the 3 kinds of H-E-B customers
Do you “get it” or not? Dallas Morning News retail reporter Maria Halkias talks to food editor Erin Booke and food reporter Sarah Blaskovich about the three kinds of H-E-B customers, what the biggest sellers were on the first opening day in Frisco (get the Texas-shaped chicken nuggets), and what’s next for the grocery store in North Texas. Then, Sarah and writer Kevin Gray talk about Belgian beer at the new Meyboom Brasserie on Greenville Avenue, and longtime State Fair of Texas concessionaire Cassy Jones gives us the scoop on those deep-friend collard greens.
