Boars Head Cold Cuts! Tue, 03/1/05 6:00 PM (permalink)
I have noticed a big difference in taste regarding Boar's Head cold cuts as compared to the competition. I noticed their cold cuts to be far superior to other brands. Another outstanding brand regarding cold cuts is Dietz & Watson which also offer deli cheeses. Plainville probably makes the best turkey cold cut products.

In my area, the majority of cold cuts are sold under the Sahlen's, Russer, Sara Lee, and Battistoni brands. Each supermarket chain usually has their own branded product which is average at best with the exception of Wegman's. Unfortunately, there is not one supermarket chain in the area that carries Boar's Head.

The only place I can buy Boar's Head products is at a local butcher shop chain called Federal Markets. Only wish I could get access to the Boar's Head entire product line.

    you don't say where you live but in Tampa,PUBLIX supermarkets has the Boars Head line(I'm not sure how far Publix's reach is)......definitely a great cold cut though,I like the garlic bologna and the liverwurst,also their ring bologna and knockwursts are wonderful.

        Publix is busy expanding throughout the SE. They are now in GA, SC, AL & TN as well as FL where they are dominant. Expect it will be awhile before they make up to NY, anselmo. I agree the Boar's Head products are superb!

          Boar's Head is great, but it's SOOO expensive. Around here in Krogers it's $9-10/lb.

            Most Boar's Head cold cuts here are around $8.99 a pound, but I do like, and buy, Boar's Head Cajun turkey. I also like their natural casing hot dogs. When it comes to their Italian-style meats, though, I don't care for them. They don't hold a candle to the real stuff.

              If you have a Liquor Barn nearby, they have wonderful packaged boar's head frankfurters in the deli section. They're the best. Boar's Head products are indeed superior.

                By the way, I live in the Western New York area in a suburb of Buffalo. Would love to see Boar's Head cold cuts in Wegmans!

                  In NYC there are 2 major chains that carry Boars Head products;Stop & Shop and Food Emporium.

                    In NYC almost every corner store or bodega with a deli carries Boar's Head cuts. Especially the Pastrami and corned beef.

                              Boar's Head products are pretty common here in the "forgotten corner" of NY State, aka Plattsburgh.

                                Kroger here in Knoxville carries BH, and it seems like I've seen BH elsewhere, but can't recall where else. Didn't realize it was such a specialty.

                                  Boar's Head offers a Porchetta, which is rosemary-spiced up pork loin. It's decent, but nothing like you can get in Italy. But kudos to them for making it.

                                    I spent some time in eastern Canada a while back, and they really had me confused. They called their noon meal dinner, their evening meal supper, and then sometimes they would have a late night snack they called lunch. Took me a while to figure out that one! It is interesting how these words change depending on where you are.

                                              Expensive and loaded with white powder chemicals msg
                                              that will harm you


                                              Can you validate this? Wouldnt surprise me the least... ?????
                                              Read the ingredients




                                              So on the label it says "white powder chemicals msg"??? I normally buy it sliced at the deli, no label, other then the damamges is why I asked...

                                                mmmmmmmmmm I beg to differ with the premise that Boars Head selections are loaded with bad things:


                                                From the American Heart Association and the Feingold Program(As listed in their Nutritional information brochure):

                                                Boar’s Head Provisions Co., Inc., is pleased to announce
                                                that all products marked with a diamond ( ) in this

                                                of the potential role of foods and synthetic additives in

                                                Boar’s Head is proud that the following products are
                                                certified by the American Heart Association because
                                                they’re low in fat and cholesterol. We met their high
                                                standards simply by living up to our own.


                                                Further investigation by myself, also reveals that the American Diabetic Association recommends several of their products as a part of their suggested diabetic diet regimen. Also upon more research, Boar's Head brand products are the ONLY deli style meats certified and endorsed by these organizations.


                                                Seems to me that with these certifications, that Boars Head has much more validity as a healthy way of eating (as well as super tasty) than much of what we buy and consume from the grocery.


                                                I do not buy my Boars Head from Kroger's et al. I find they mark up these products considerably. We have a deli here that handles only Boars Head meats and cheeses and they ALL sell for 5.99 and 6.99 a lb, with the exception of the proscuitto, which is 8.99, plus they deliver the stuff right to my door!

                                                  I would rather buy fillet mignon
                                                  Its ridiculos


                                                  Where can you get Filet Mignon for $10.00 a lb.? Can't even get crappy select grade for that around these parts.

                                                        Boar's Head is great, but it's SOOO expensive. Around here in Krogers it's $9-10/lb.

                                                        I would rather buy fillet mignon
                                                        Its ridiculos


                                                        Where can you get Filet Mignon for $10.00 a lb.? Can't even get crappy select grade for that around these parts.

                                                        Giant Eagle, prime filet mignon, 20 minutes ago: $11.99 a pound.


                                                        Ah! If only I lived North of the Manson Nixon line.


                                                        Manson Nixon line... I likes that...

                                                          I have lived south of the Mason Dixie line and cold cuts tend to be more expensive than where I currently live in Western New York.

                                                          I also like the Manson Nixon line term.

                                                            all cold cuts are made with chemicals
