I agree with Gracie, they have the patience of Saints.


Me too - I always check "use by dates" to get the freshest dairy.
I thought all women shoppers checked "best by" dates.
Not to be discriminatory, but I've noticed men are more likely to grab the first thing on the shelf.


My husband has successfully completed the home-schooled course Grocery 101 and is now bringing home fresher bagged lettuce and milk!

Lol. My husband is not the norm then. He insists on checking the dates on any fresh food, dairy, breads, eggs , etc. and will get after me and remind me if I take something from the front without checking the dates.

It's always interesting, because although the product is supposed to be rotated with the newest in the back that is not always the case.

I had to check that out on Snopes to see if it was an urban legend. Guess it's true about bread tie colors and the day the bread is delivered.

That's interesting, because you could leave a loaf of brand name bread (not grocery store baked) in your fridge for months and it wouldn't mold. I've done it with Sara Lee Lite Whole Wheat.

There are so many preservatives in those breads on the bread aisle.

thats just wrong on so many levels.......

I'm shocked. Where I come from the response would be, "that takes a lot of unmitigated gall", to make the store personnel get a fork, open the box, give a sample, (listen to the customer proclaim for all to hear how TERRIBLE it is), and then take the box to the back room to either discard the contents, or re-package, weigh and price it.

I think it's disrespectful to the merchant. But I'm from the midwest. Haven't seen that before.
I agree that this practice is unusual but it is something that Publix has always done. It is their policy.

Publix does not consider this gall. They tell their customers that they are happy to break open packages.

And there are people who wonder why some of us love our pets so much. Animals are just not as complicated as people.
