A potpourri of off-topics.

For instance 4 chicken breasts for $10. I want to know what it is by weight!


Yes, yet another hope that shoppers will grab and go. I guess they haven't considered that careful shoppers might take two or three of those chicken or other raw meat packages to the produce scales to see which package is better deal or maybe none at all. In the meantime, those weighing fruits and veggies are being cross contaminated.............how much easier for them to weigh all litre and 4 for $$$ type packages so consumers don't have to be involved.

When I first started this topic, it was because in my research on line, I discovered others had already done some weighing of these litre containers of peaches as an example.........they ranged from 3.8 to 4.8 lbs per container.......that is quite a spread in price per pound.

Those 4/$10.00 packs of chicken breasts show weights on the label - usually top right hand corner or middle of the label. Helps when you want to get the bigger package by weight.

[icon_lol2.gif] Nope ... if all packages are $10.00, find the heaviest and grab it.

Nope, I refuse to buy it that way.
