      Good call on the Lea & Perrin's, Heinz and Helmann's.

      I might also add Coke (vs. Pepsi), Quaker oatmeal, Breyer's ice cream, Cottonelle toilet paper, Europe's Best frozen fruit.

      1. re: KayceeK

        How do you prepare your Cottonelle? I like mine braised in a Madeira/kumquat reduction and then dusted with confectioner's sugar and Meyer lemon zest. ;)

          Ha ha...oops! I was just picturing myself going through the grocery store aisles and forgot to keep it to food and drink. Good thing I didn't mention the Pepto! ha

    2. La Tortilla Factory!
      I'm moving soon and I'm terrified that I won't be able to get them anymore.

        If I may be so bold, what state are you moving to?

        1. re: Perilagu Khan

          I'm moving within Canada -- I was lucky to find them in my neighbourhood grocery store in the first place, and the smaller town I'm headed to is not likely to be similarly supplied. :(
          I suppose I could call LTF and inquire, but for now I'm just stockpiling the freezer as though I'm preparing for nuclear winter.

        2. re: Whats_For_Dinner

          You know they'r available online, right? I stopped buying them when I realized they had hydrogenated fats, though I think they announced a reformulation?

                Delmonte Ketchup? Controversial!

                Any thoughts on the merit of Louisiana vs Crystal Hot Sauce?

                Fully agree with you on Rumford baking powder. My baked goods have gotten better using it.

                1. re: LauraGrace

                  Delmonte out of habit...Can eat Heinz, but not Hunts. Really don't eat much Ketchup at all to be honest....Occasionally on Fries...Rarely on Fish...Never on Burgers or Dogs!

                  I like both Hot Sauces and a couple of others...Crystal a little more vinegary..but good. Louisiana thicker and an old habit...Franks is nice on "wangs" ~~~
