@5665150@mbersiam@narfcake An important point is that you had no idea how much (or what kind) you were going to get. That was part of the “fun.” So when the UPS driver came by with a pasta box, that was exciting. After the 3rd or 4th box, it just became ridiculous, but still fun.
especially if you had “gifted” it to an unsuspecting friend instead of your own address.
There’s news of another pasta drop (wannabe) in the near future. I’m not posting details because there’s only 400 of them available, and if I do, it will be like locusts descending upon the crops, or an IRK and I won’t get one.
Because, you know, you can never have too much pasta.
Pasta drop was pretty simple. Resturats were shutting down so bulk 5-10Lb packages of pasta that they could go longer sell retail were stuck in the pipeline. Meh bough a bunch at a discount and made a game out of it. We bought it at a discount and shipped out to friends/family. Or just bought it for ourselves. It’s not that complicated .
Dried Pasta used to be .50 a pound not $1.25 a pound eventually it will start correcting to a higher but normal level
Ahh, Pastadrop! What memories! What noods! What fun! Pastadrop ran from about the beginning of June, 2020 to August 2020 in a several waves.
I sent Pastadrop to family, friends, and to a foodbank (multiple times on the latter). But when I finally ordered one for myself, towards the end of the offerings, I only received ten lbs of linguine, though the paperwork with the box was marked 20lbs. Too bad. There was no more.
It was good pasta! Imported Italian pasta at that.
And there is one foodbank, where everyone there still knows and remembers Pastadrop.
Then there were the 25lb bags of beans, Great Northern and navy beans. I sent a bunch of them to the foodbank as well. Got one each for myself, which I shared with family. Ate all the navy beans eventually, but the last 5lbs or so of the Great Northerns went moldy on me and had to be discarded.
This was strange as I had transferred those from the polyethylene mesh bag in which they came to a large container which could be sealed. The moisture level of those beans must have been a wee bit too high.
Then there was the Stroopwafel drops. Ahh Stroopwafels! Those things were delicious. I gifted a number of people with Stroopwafels including the foodbank.
All in all, there have been some great offerings from Meh in terms of food items. I still have some of the mango bars in the freezer. I have a half a box of Love Corn, and a few packages of the Schoolyard Snacks Low Carb Keto Puffs left, which weren’t all that great, but I’m now eating as I am trying to cut back on carbs and drop some weight.
