Thick steaks!

I'm heartbroken to see all those 1/2" "steaks.

They are good for something though. When cutting up for stew meat, half the work is done for you, and easy to cut up with kitchen shears.

I miss the Mount Olive who pickled banana peppers. They were great as a sandwich. And their Hot Mixed too.

Rock Candy is still around, but in a very small box.
Necco wafers are still available around here too.
Mount Olive still makes sliced banana peppers, both hot and mild but I haven't seen whole pickled banana peppers in a long time and their hot mix was discontinued a number of years ago. What a shame too, that was some seriously good stuff.

I remember that rock candy on a string, barely. My one aunt used to make rock candy.
We've got Mount Olive products in the town store. I'm going to see if they have those whole peppers.

turkish taffy, deluxe cake with cherries combination kit, ice cream flavors including lemon and chocolate covered butter almond. there are many original products that i miss, where the recipe has undergone radical changes, but imo never "improved".

The sliced ones have their uses, I admit, but not for a banana pepper sandwich.

Butter some white bread, lay whole pickled banana peppers on it, eat. YUM.

OK, is it a regional thing or what? I buy pork chops all the time. Bone in usually, but occasionally boneless. Costco has amazing pork, and I toss them in brine for about an hour, grill or fry 'em and they rock. Am I missing something? Have they changed and my palate is so uneducated I didn't notice?

I miss weird stuff that they don't make anymore or I can't find. I miss squeeze a snack...heh heh heh, and some of the other Kraft products that have been discontinued. I used to call it "triangle cheese". It was a really old cheese in a wedge shape, made by Kraft, oh man was it good.

Its probably a good thing they stopped making that stuff, I'd have kept eating it all and I KNOW its crappy for me!

Alix, I think we are all lamenting the modern pig. The pork industry has bred the fat out of modern pigs to the point where loin meat is very lean and therefore dry. Brining is a must now.

I've stopped buying loin cuts. I now buy pork sirloin, tenderloin and butt.
