How bad is the meat at the dollar store? Is it as much of a gamble as one would think it is?

How bad is the meat at the dollar store? Is it as much of a gamble as one would think it is?

Also, any grocery store horror stories in general?
I once saw a dead mouse in a glue trap nestled around the place where they drop the water pallets. I told customer service so someone would at least get it and throw it away before it stunk up the aisle.

          Dollar Tree is taking massive loses and closing down many stores across the country. 1000 stores are closing down.

        3.5oz net weight, at a dollar for that package that's about $4.45/lb, at $1.25 it's $5.56/lb. 30% of *that* is a brine solution. You're better off getting a steak at Wal-Mart at that point.

        Don't they glue different pieces of meat together in one frankensteak?

        Not at that price point they don't. It's probably meat from an old dairy cow.

        Nothing wrong with blade tenderized. Costco blade tenderizes all their steaks (except filet and flank), and people commonly regard them as having some of the best steaks of any grocery store.

        The tenderizer was down once and I bought steaks and they were very noticeably tougher. It does actually make a big (positive) difference

        that looks pretty bad. but I've eaten meat like that by slow cooking in a crockpot to make it edible with veggies and potatoes for a stew. it works if you wanna be cheap and it's not bad.

        I tried it(them) so YOU don't have to.
        >Tastes may differ
        in a word: DON'T.
        The ONLY thing I would give a tentative thumbs up to is the hotdogs/sosig
        ...and I wouldn't eat those more than 2 days in a row.
        skip the Las Vegas cheese altogether(the pepper jack et al) It's...
        how to describe?
        >pic
        Truly though, the SPAM knock-off the have, "Luncheon Loaf" I believe it's called, is IMO better that Spam.
        ALWAYS read the labels, they are sneaking genotoxic garbage into everything these days, and one last caveat:
        Some of the stuff at the Dolla' Tre'? MUCH cheaper to buy at the regular grocery store.

        That's GLUED together with thrombin and fibrogen--AVOID!

        are they really a dollar? i thought biden's economy made these dollar stores bring their prices to at least $1.50

        $1.25 now, and they've included higher priced Items as well. your dollar is reduced to 80¢(BEFORE TAX)

      They used to be $1. I'm boycotting Dollar Tree for raising their prices but I used to get these all the time to gross my wife out. They are perfectly fine, it's regular steak it's just low-quality and very thin.

        How the frick long did you expect them to maintain their prices in the face of rampant inflation? You should be amazed that they were able to raise it as little as they did and still make a profit.

          It's really more about the short-sighted hubris of basing your entire operation on the fact that everything in your store costs $1.

            I guess it worked because a new dollar store opens up about every 6 months in my area despite the fact that they're just regular stores now

              This is just a symptom of the United States sliding further into the brown abyss. They attract low-IQ, low-income customers with their business model. They sell nothing but conglomerate slop and knock-offs with special packaging at a higher unit cost than supermarkets. When they are eventually forced to raise their prices due to the same fiscal policy their owners push they close down one brand and open another back at the $1 price point with shrinkflated packaging to make it more difficult to track. It's unfortunate and transparently manipulative but it doesn't matter when you sell exclusively to apathetic idiots. That's why Subway is still in business.

    I was an assistant manager at a Dollar Tree in Houston Texas. Trust me when I say don't buy the meat ever. If it's not expired outright, it'll be freezer burnt, or nogs will have opened it and left it there for days without associates noticing. My first major project after orientation was throwing away half of our entire lunch meat stock because nobody before I got hired noticed it was expired by 3-4 weeks. You're literally better off going to McDonald's or some equivalent cheap fast food dive for dinner. DO NOT GET DOLLAR TREE MEAT.

    Well I wouldn't eat it rare.

    If I'm getting low grade dollar store $1-2 per lb meat I am putting that shit in a casserole, no taking chances here.

      Well, the pretzels are definitely worth it, the spring rolls got "Reduced" into an 8 pk, where I am(still passable) but you'll wanna check the origins on those vegetables. I've never bought them because they are from China, and I don't eat shit grown in toxic waste if I can help it.
      For that matter, NOTHING from china.
      My locations have started getting stuff like Ramen from Thailand and even USA, so those are ok in my book.
      Too bad they discontinued the samosas, those were excellent. The potstickers were good to, but several of the local chinese places caught on and started buying them out.
      >$1.25 for 9 potstickers
      >sell 8 for $5.99
      >every 8th order is pure profit
      Fuuuuuuuuuuuuu..

    I buy it all the time. It's just what are called factory seconds, where there's some discoloration or whatever that would scare off normies at Trader Joe's but doesn't affect the taste or quality of the meat. Just make sure to check the expiration.

    Dollar tree is good for candy, chips, cheap medical supplies like isopropyl alcohol or cotton swabs, and that's pretty much it.
    Also wacky gifts in the toy aisle if you want to piss your friends off

      batteries, charging cords, superglue, wrapping paper, rags ("towels"), plastic cooking utensils
      Also if you need a smaller version of a regular product, like laundry detergent or cereal, many of them make special small sizes exclusively for dollar stores. Can be nice eg while travelling
