Day 116 – April 16
Generally, in store brands are fairly similar to name brands. At least that has been my experience with Safeway and Meijer brands. Today, that changed. I decided to buy the Meijer brand chocolate powder because it was much cheaper than Nestle’s Nesquick. A quick check of ingredients revealed no glaring differences. Well, clearly something was different. It’s TERRIBLE! Yuck! I haven’t given it to the babes yet, they’ll get to taste it on Sabbath. Likely, they’ll think it’s fine. I think it’s awful. It is nothing at all like Nesquick, and I’m wishing I wouldn’t have spent the money on it. Alas, I’ll know better for next time. I’m also wary to try other Meijer brand items. So, I think I’ll stick to the ones that I know are good and then go with name brand beyond that. The one silver lining, it was only $2.50, so not a giant loss in the grand scheme of things.
