OK, I looked but couldn't find a place to put this. How many of you have bought expensive foods and been very disappointed? This was a canned lobster Newburg. There was not one sliver of meat of any kind. There wasn't even a whiff of sherry. I will say that the puff pastry shells we ordered with it were pretty, surprisingly, good.

OK, OK, I know I should have known better, but short of ordering lobsters to be FedExed in (which we have done), we thought it might be fun.

Claire, I've done that many many times, and some of the food was tomatoes, but I've learned that quality is better then price quantity

For example if I buy some natral cow cheese "an off brand cheese" it taste like crap and feels like snot. You know what I mean?
