    Default Boar's Head: Was: Supposedly the Best Hot Dogs

    Boar's Head: Was: Supposedly the Best Hot Dogs

    I visited my new market "Giant of PA" this morning to shop for either
    Nathan's natural casing dogs or the Boar's Head several mentioned.

    I found the Nathan's Famous skinless package. Sized to be longer than a
    bun so I thought why not. Put a pack in the cart. I asked a female
    employee if she still carried the Boar's Head brand. She walked me maybe
    10 steps further and there was the island. She reached for a pack and
    handed it to me, asking, is there anything else you need? I looked at my
    list and said "AH, yes. Roast turkey." She about 90 degrees and pointed
    to the big Deli sign a little further. I said "Thank you. I could've
    walked right into it and hurt myself! She smiled and I thanked her again.

    Here's where it got interesting (to me). At the deli counter thee was a
    computer touch screen kiosk that you put in your order. I pressed Deli,
    it asked with a display of all their deli offerings, cheese, meats,
    chilled salads, platters, etc. I press Meat. Now it asks which type with
    again tastefully designed labeled icons. I press Turkey. It then lists
    all the brands of turkey. They're all listed with the style, brand
    price/lb. I press roast turkey. Then it asks how many pounds. I chose
    1lb. and pressed OK. Is that correct. I check yes. Then bars of
    increasing thickness appeared on the screen and it asked what slice
    thickness would you like? Very thin? Thin? Medium?, etc., etc. I pressed
    the thin bar. It then showed me the cost on the screen in a drop basket
    it dropped a printed receipt that looked more like a mini diploma. Not to
    turn in at the register, since the turkey had already been bagged and
    labeled. I didn't study it very long but it might have been a discount
    coupon for another Boar's Head product.

    The final kicker? 20 feet of the thirty foot deli case were packed with
    Boar's Head brand meats and cheeses and whatever it is they make.

    The oven-roast turkey cost me $6 and change and that was after the kiosk
    gave me $2.00 off.

    I push-carted away with my Boar's Head roast turkey and hot dogs,
    thinking I'll never do that again!!!

    Aside from Boar's Head prices, the other prices were better than my ACME
    and one mile from the house, compared to two or more miles from the rest.

    Except for my bank, I now live comfortably in a two mile radius world.

    Yup, the Boar's Head products are expensive, but awfully good. Have you
    tried their ring Kielbasa or their soprasada? The Kielbasa in particular is
    old-world quality with room to spare.

    Boar's Head is strong-arming Dietz & Watson, the Philly manufacturer, out of
    local supermarkets. There was an article in the Inquirer about it. I refuse
    to buy Boar's Head.

    But ... but ... Boar's Head is Canadian. Canadians don't "strong-arm"
    others. Well, except in hockey, but that is a different religion.

    pavane,

    I never bought Boar's Head products until today.

    ACME never carried the brand.

    A member here, around a handful of years ago, mentioned Boar's Head.
    Perhaps it was you and it just sounded too unusual not to investigate. I
    did find it at another market soon after that but backed off, again at
    the price.

    When you mentioned Boar's Head dogs on the "best dog" thread the other
    day, I thought, "This time I gotta try that."g Then today when I saw the
    entire Boar's Head deli dept., I thought, "dammit! Now I gotta try that
    too!" <VBG>

    Best,

    Andy

    Thanks for the computer story. Otherwise I'm not sure of the point.

    Boar's Head thinly sliced pancetta wrapped in mozzarelle is fantastic for
    snacking. Expensive? Yes. Do I buy it every week or even every year? No.

    Hot dogs? I don't bother. Nathan's, Hebrew National, Oscar Meyer,
    Ballpark... who cares? They're hot dogs. You may still be enthralled with
    the hot dog eating contest but I couldn't care less.

    The Supposed best hotdog wasn't my idea. It was on the morning news.

    That it came out on the same day as Nathan's Famous 100+ (?) year old
    contest I thought it might be fun. After all it WAs the 4th of July!

    That those two threads have lasted too long in your opinion? I could also
    care less.

    You can of courrse politicize your views with everybody else as you care to
    but leave me out of it until I finish today's first ever Boar's Herd
    purchase of 7 hot dogs and 1 lb. of roast turkey.

    OK???

    Next Thursday's probably good for me.

    Boy was I wrong! Thanks for the correction. I was living in Canada
    when I first came across them, and made an obviously bad assumption.
    Appreciate it.

    Depends which products and what you're comparing them to. I find
    a lot of Boar's Head salami products are better than random regional salami
    that a U.S. grocery store might carry, and in most cases as good or
    better than Fra Mani, the supposedly upscale brand in nationwide
    distribution. I would not say any Boar's Head products are at a bad
    price point; although for an all-beef product I will pick Hebrew National
    instead.

    But sometimes a regional product wins on quality vs. price. Milan
    Salami Company in Oakland, CA is a local winner -- that I have tried,
    their salami is both better than and cheaper than Boar's Head.
    But they do not have the same range of products.

    I have less experience with dogs, Kielbasa and the like so there
    I cannot say.

    For some things it is but from what you've posted you get raped on
    everything where you live. Boars Head pepperoni is well worth the
    price difference. Deitz and Watson has some good stuff too. Their
    horseradish cheddar is wonderful for sandwiches. I'm not a fan of
    turkey but Louise loves their Black Forest Turkey. I'd even eat it if
    there was no ham or roast beef around. It's worth the money.
