I love the "baby bologna" from Forest Pork Store. It is milder than most, and I agree it is a cut above Boars Head!
    cool one

    Boar's Head is my favorite cold cut brand and in the NYC area they seem to have cornered the market. I remember a 'Hansel and Gretel' brand of cold cuts at delis but I don't see them around anymore. The only other brand of cold cuts at delis I can think of is Thumann's.

    I believe the Hansel and Gretel brand is still around. I think I see them at Compare Foods. Compare has 14 locations, 5 in Nassau Co. (3 in Freeport, 1 each in Hicksville and Farmingdale), 6 in Suffolk Co. (Two Brentwood, 1 in Farmingville, 1 in Central Islip, 1 in Bay Shore and 1 in Wyandanch), plus two in Bridgeport, CT and one in Providence, RI

      I shopped at Albertson's for the first time in some time today. I am a true fan of Publix, but this was just where I was today.

      They offer Deitz and Watson brand cold cuts as their premium variety. They also have Jennie-O, which is what I remembered from the last time I was there -- and that was not a happy recollection. I recalled reading about D&W here (or thought I did), and purchased some of their service deli sliced london broil, on sale at $4.99/lb. Usually roast beef -- good roast beef -- goes for $8-9/lb at the supermarket and around $7 at Petty's.

      I don't see this as comparable to Boar's Head at all -- or even the locally cooked variety at the gourmet shop. It tastes very salty and has very little "beef" flavor. Am I missing something about this brand? Did I just order their one inferior product? Or, have my tastes just aligned to what I am more familiar -- and should keep ordering the good Boar's Head stuff when I want it?
