Do You Ever Buy Foods Solely For Their Cuteness?

Last time I went shopping at Whole Foods, I came across some tomatoes that were so dainty, the smallest ones were tinier than my baby fingernail! I found them incredibly adorable and, admittedly for this reason only, found myself shelling out $4 for a carton. Have you ever been swayed to buy something just because it's (almost) too cute to eat?

I used to buy really small cute eggplants... but then I realized that one price fits all... so I might as well buy the BIGGEST so I get more BANG for my buck.... I buy cherry tomatoes only because I like them BETTER than regular ones... I didn't really realize they were cute - ha ha.

I've been tempted, but my too-practical-for-words husband always talks me out of it: "That is SUCH A RIPOFF!! These ones are way cheaper!" So yeah, the voice of reason usually wins out.

I'm with Roaring Silence, I buy food for it's tastiness, but now I'll be looking for cuteness - strange but true.

I don't think I've ever bought anything simply because it's cute.. but one day I'll take a picture of any tiny fruit or vegetable version I can find (like baby bananas, pineapples, kiwis, tomatoes and so on). It will be a mini still life.

Baby grapes! (Or as they are otherwise known, Champagne grapes.) Seriously cute as well as delicious! I have also, for the last two years purchased a variety of tomato plant called 'Jellybean,' as they are supposed to be the size of...well, you know. How cute would that be? But between them getting chomped by rabbits the first year, and the crappy tomato season overall this year, I have gotten only THREE stinkin' tomatoes from them total. I must admit they are awfully cute, though.
