RE: Your Favorite Cold Cuts - Boar's Head?
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?
