Michael in FtW: I couldn't agree with you more. When I moved cross country from Texas to Illinois, I thought that I could count on Brand Names to be the same. That was a pipe dream!
The first thing that I reached for was a sandwich. Oscar Mayer, Miracle Whip, and Kraft. What a shock! They obviously have more than one recipe!
There is nothing better than French's Mustard in Illinois.
Pork Sausage Brands are better in Illinois and Jimmy Dean is not the pick of the house.
Fast Food varies too and so does the menu! I ordered without looking at the menu at TACO Bell and the clerk comes back and says "What?"
