buyer's remorse??

Was in Dollar Tree, of all places, and they had cans of Progresso "recipe starters"... or something like that. Oven roated tomato something. I don't buy a lot of canned soup stuff, but like several Progresso products. It was NASTY!!

Bumblebee solid, albacore in olive oil at a fantastic price... like $1.79 and a $.50 off coupon on top. Again... NASTY... my cat LOVED it.

What have you bought that was a total FAIL??

  1. I happen to think that Progresso is ok for canned soup. And I've never tried BB solid albacore tuna in olive oil but for $1.79 minus 50 cents it sounds a whole lot better than Starkist for .79 a can.

    Maybe if you didn't shop at Dollar Tree so often you wouldn't suffer from buyers remorse.

      1. Buyers remorse is the price you pay for being adventurous and trying new things. I'd say I am about 65-35 in hits vs misses.

        1. Trader Joe's Fruit Floes.

          1. a honeydew melon from the farmers market. it was well beyond ripe but had no flavor and absolutely no sweetness. i've had sweeter lettuce than what i tasted.

            1. re: trolley

              Sounds like it was picked too early, and never developed sweetness and aroma from natural ripening. Left stillborn until someone went ahead and bought it.
