    But the Smithfield products you see there are from a huge giant ultra
    mega conglomerate packing company. They really don't sell true
    Smithfield hams at Aldi.

    What they sell is just something that is marked "Smithfield".

    This is the real Smithfield ham:

    I don't associate anything wonderful with butterball turkeys. They
    simply bought a lot of mind share by continuously advertising them. All
    of the big box industrial market display cases are filled with them at
    cheap prices.

    I know, George! It's a brand name, which is what we were talking about,
    as opposed to Aldi's "Kirkland" or other store brands.

    I live in NC, and have many relatives in Virginia. I know what a Smithfield
    ham is.
