I have to step in here and give a bad review for the carrots and beets. The carrots are past their freshness date long before they are bagged. Even in the fridge, they go bad very quickly. Stick with the individual carrots, pay a bit more and be able to select the good ones. The beets are often very tiny. A lot of effort is required to peel the skin.

Don't stores also do that for baked goods? I realize that these days, everything is likely pre-packaged, but there was a day when a groceries stores "fresh" baked good where in bulk bns and you would help yourself. There would also be seperate bags of the same product, sometimes for a lower price per piece. Some of the tiime, people just don't want to have to spend the couple of minutes picking out the best baked good and just want to walk into the store quickly, pay, and then go home. Other times, it seems that the pre-bagged patteries could be yesterday's stuff.

I don't notice a difference in freshness, but at least at Walmart, the 10 lb bags of onions contain very small onions. No Frills would probably sell them as Naturally Imperfect.


@will888 Are you going to air fry a chicken with some of these veggies?

I use frozen mixed veggies and sometimes pcs fall out of the bag in my freezer which don't look like the ones inside the bag. So I won't use just a frozen veggie by putting it the freezer. I once froze apple slices, banana and grapes once during my college life and they were awfully dehydrated when I thawed them :).

if you don't think you can use the 10 pounds before they begin to spoil why don't you just give a portion to your neighbour(s)? ......... seeds of good karma

St. Hubert's taste better. The crust is flakier too. Quebecers have a love/hate relationship with St. Hubert, but they just hate Swiss Chalet. St. Hubert was making such an inroad into manufactured food that Cara ended up buying them. It shows in the taste and quality of the pies.
