Two fold.

I went to Giant last night to get 1 lb of ground beef as my taco dinner kit instructed me to.

1. why the fuck is there never just 1 lb ground beef packages? Why are they always 1.34 or 1.27 lbs? I dont think i have ever had or tasted my tacos as Old El Paso wants me to. That extra .34 of ground beef most assuredly dillutes the taco seasoning that was intended for 1 lb only. No wonder my tacos taste meaty vs taco-y. This just isnt me being nit picky. Ive heard many of people complain about this.

2. Every package was exactly weighed out to 1.34 lbs. Like 8 of em. Im calling bull shit. So youre telling me that your butcher guy has this magical ability to exactly weigh the same ground beef every single time. Like every single time he goes to separate a pound or so of ground beef he always magically nails 1.34 lbs?

Or, alternatively, he doesnt want to have input the numbers for each individual label for each individual weigh and says fuck it, Ill just make all the labels 1.34 lbs.

Fuck it indeed. Who needs flavorful tacos as they are intended or to not be ripped off for paying for 1.34 lbs of ground beef when really you probably got like 1.23 lbs. Fuck it.
Not being a smart ass here but there are! This pic is from Costco but many grocery stores carry brands very similar. Giant does have their own looks very much like this one.Many are over becuase "after cooking" they are 1 pound.

Wow. Rich people have zero self awareness on how they come off.

Im glad the rich people can enjoy their perfectly balanced and flavorful Old El Paso Dinner Taco Kit.

Just wow. The internet man.

I just buy my ground beef in patties these days. Don't they sell those chubs of ground beef anymore? They used to come in a 1 pound size.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

When I don't have anywhere to be and can sleep all day if I wanted, I can never sleep in. Always wake up early. Grinding my own gears.

But come Tuesday this week, I'll be kicking and screaming trying to wake myself up for work.

Some of the items are worth the Costco fee if you shop for more than yourself and have room at home. My wife has a friend who does the coupon thing to the max and I don't get it . The meat is good and worth it and the Mrs and my daughter are both school teachers and I buy a bunch of stuff for school for them from there. Even some of the medication like the small dose aspirin is a very good buy .

It's the coupon women I don't understand much of the stuff they buy will be out of date by the time they use it all and you have to have a lot of space!
