TRUE STORY. A customer at work asked me where he could find “the bacon that’s already cooked and you don’t need to refrigerate.” Sadly, we had it available but the customer wasn’t happy because what we had was already refrigerated. He said, “Once it’s refrigerated, you have to keep it refrigerated. I want something I don’t have to refrigerate!”
Can you imagine the chemicals in that stuff! Thanks, but no thanks.
Someone asked about boxed Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc in a comment. Mounthaven Chardonnay in a 3-L octavin box is great if you like some oak on your Chard. I’m hearing good things about Silver Birch Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, in a 3-L octavin box but haven’t had a chance to taste it yet. How bad can 3-L of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc be when it only costs $15 and lasts for 3 weeks? That’s a gamble I’d be willing to undertake.
