Is there anything better than Boars Head cold cuts?

The quality is hardly "very High". It is average at best. You even said it yourself that they are a large company and you compare the quality to the size of the company. They have the best marketing, and nice labels. And when you compare them to generic, they are better. Which is why they BUY their way into supermarkets. They BUY their way into stores so they can eliminate any competition. I have a few deli's in my area in Manhattan that carry Boars Head and Thumanns. I only order the Thumanns.

Harris Teeter switches to Boar's Head

Boar's Head is ok. It doesn't blow other premium brands away except in price, marketing, and buy outs. Basically what happened is... BH offered Harris teeters 10s of thousands of dollars to cut out the competition. I would bet my bottom dollar that BH offered between 10k and 50k for each store. Harris did not just roll over and thank god that BH finally arrived. Harris basically made a deal with the devil. thats all that happened. However if you want choice just make sure each time you go in to the store ask for another brand. Boars Head gets their way because their commercials tell people to ask for their brand. And guess what people do?

Harris Teeter switches to Boar's Head

I wouldnt say all these people are bashing BH. It sound like they were bashing Harris Teeters. And as far as quality goes. BH is not the best. They have a pretty label for sure, but Thumann's meat quality surpasses BH. Proof is in the puddin http://www.my411cafe.com/thumanns/bud...

Do you eat the skin on Brie?

I am a delivery person. I deliver brie to my customers among other things. I debated this with one of the chefs. I personally don't like the rind so i carve it off. An additional factor is cleanliness. I just unwrapped my own 1.1kilo wheel. However, the plastic wrapper did not fully encase the wheel. Which is fairly common. Therefore, the rind becomes a dirt magnet. SO i would treat it like a fruit. Wash the skin before you eat it.

Try a Thummans hot dog. I have yet to have a hot dog better than Thumann's Hot dogs. They are like potato chips you can't just eat one. Most other dogs have a salty, greasy after taste. There is a hot dog place in newburgh, new york called Pete's Dogs. They used to get their infamous hot dogs from a local packer. They were very good. That packing house shut down and Pete's now uses Boars Head hot dogs. The flavor was good but literally when I was done all I had left was the rubbery natural casing. As far as I know that was the only time I ever had BH hot dogs.

The way that Boar's Head works is that they BUY their way into a store and the deal includes kicking out better brands. That way the only thing they are compared to is brands that aren't as good. So of course they seem like the best. But, If they were the best they wouldnt have to BUY their way into stores. BH is ok, but hardly the best. I prefer Thumann's because they taste as good or better, and Thumann's deli meats are healthier across the board. I found a document that proves this.
