    Cathy,

    I assume you are also familiar with Peoria Packing. You have talked a lot about Park Packing. Peoria is much more convenient for me. If you are familiar with Peoria, is it worth it for me to travel to Park over Peoria? I get all the usual suspects with pork ribs and pork bellies the most common purchase.

    Hi,

    I have been to both, though its been a few years since I was last at Peoria Packing.

    Someone here pointed out Park Packing was grittier. There are body parts at Park Packing, I never saw at Peoria.

    I think it is worth a visit at least once, then decide for yourself.

    Regards,

    It would seem obvious that I could visit at least once. I was asking if you had an opinion, and you do not.

    Sorry, I did not satisfy your inquiry.

    Went to Jewel to pick up cherries, I walked past the Jewel Signature pasta. The price stopped me in my tracks: $1.79 per pound. I am accustomed to paying 99 cents or less depending on whatever is on sale.

    I have a specialized price of $.99 for the Signature pasta again. I had the same price a few weeks ago. I bought four packages of WW spaghetti. They used to offer the pasta as a reward, but they have not done that in ages.

    I wonder how much pasta is at Aldi's right now? I know milk is $3.25 a gallon there right now.

    Yeah, I used to regularly get a Personalized Price of 50 cents for Signature Select pasta. It was also sometimes a coupon or sale item for that price.
    The genuine Italian pasta that all the smaller chains (Butera, Caputo's, Shop n Save, Tonys, Valli, etc) used to sell for 99 cents or sometimes a little less has gone way up. I used to buy a lot of the Granoro 500 gram packages. A little cheaper and made 2 meals for 3 eaters, where a pound was a little skimpy.

    Be careful with a lot of the cheap pastas that are out there right now. They might have an Italian sounding name. However, many of them are actually Mexican and Colombian products.

    I have had a lot of problems with the Mexican pastas as you need to be sure that you do not overcook or they will fall apart.
