Beef: It’s What’s No Longer Affordable for Dinner
I have noticed the steady increase in food prices for a lengthy time. Up up up and… when a price does not rise the item on the shelf is in a smaller container. How much smaller will those soup cans become? If trends continue soup cans will be packed in 6-packs with three cans barely making enough soup to feed a small skinny person!!!
What are the masses of common folks going to do? The costs of the necessities keep going up. Then up some more.
In the later 1970s and all or part of the 1980s I recall a heat-and-eat sandwich available at convenience stores, truck stops and other places where a refrigerated case offered various sandwich-types and a heating device on the counter allowing the heating of the vittle(s).
One of the more common names for the particular sandwich I remember was “Longhorn.”
Another name may have been “Wrangler.”
I do not remember the manufacturer but I believe that varied from area to area.
Across the USA the sandwiches’ name varied though I did see Longhorn more than any other name.
