It's been said somewhere before that F&E provides what can be called as a European grocery shopping experience.
You shop for a few items, pretty much as much as you can carry and walk half the town to get home. You visit the store/market a few times a week, buying only a few things to make whatever you're making for dinner that night.
CLo has been doing that with her F&E because it's so close to her, less than a mile drive. As for me, now I can do the same. On my brand new bike. :)
Whatever I could fit in the box is what I can buy. (Click on that and you'll go to my Flickr album where I put notes on what's all is in the bucket.)
Speaking of small portion, I have also got the explanation for the downsizing of the fresh salad dressing. Just as I suspected, the consumers' feedback came to F&E that they could never use up the whole big bottle in time. Being without any preservatives, you have to consume that big ol' bottle in a few days and unless 4 people are eating salad at every meal, it's an impossible feat. To cut down on the wastefulness of the big bottle, voila, smaller version.
Just another way F&E shows that they listen to your feedback! So yes, email them through their site. Tell someone at the store. Or leave a comment here on our blog which is being read by F&E folks. (/wave...hi guys!)
Another Dinner Possible blog coming soon. The cheapest meal plan yet!
