Amazing Packages of Prepared foods at Safeway

I was simultaneously surprised and shocked at the "prepared foods" section in Safeway this afternoon.

First, I spotted this 8 oz. cup of peach chunks in light syrup, on sale for $1.50. This is the size of a yogurt cup.



 

Next, there was the tub of "Aqua Pac Celery Sticks" for $4.99.

This is a 14 oz. tub, which is a little larger than a can of Pepsi.





And finally, I noticed this snack tray of apple slices with cinnamon cream dip. 44 ounces (2 lbs, 12 ounces) of apples, plus 6 ounces of sauce. This was $15.99.

 

Really?

With convenience comes a price, I suppose. Wow, though. 16 bucks to core and slice $5 worth of apples and toss in some (surely) sugar-oil \"cream dip\". I suppose that Safeway gets enough of a return on the packaging, so there must be plenty of folks who can\'t spare 15 minutes.

To be fair, those prepackaged readypack things don\'t actually come from safeway, they are shipped to us and we are required to sell them. You\'ll notice the same brands, for the same price, at all other grocery stores. You pay an extra 5 dollars for the convenience of having everything cleaned and prepared for you.

Say ORGANIC apples are $2.29/lb, and say the chemical (I mean cinnamon cream)sauce is $2.00 for that little container, that would only be a total of $8.30. It takes all of one minute to cut up an apple. Is ONE MINUTE of your time really worth $7.69? That would be $461.40/hr. That\'s 70 times more than minimum wage (~ $0.11/minute.) If you work 40 hrs a week, 52 weeks a year, at $7.69/minute,then your yearly salary is $959,712.00. So if that\'s the case, then no, the apples are not a rip-off.

I\'ll occasionally grab such things for a road trip (though usually from Wawa) but it\'s otherwise unnecessary. I do, however, wish that celery was sold in smaller packages - there\'s only two of us and we don\'t like celery that much. Carrots, too, and herb bundles like parsley and cilantro, but celery is the worst offender. Asparagus and broccoli and the like are usually sold by the pound, thank goodness, so I just pull apart their pre-tied bundles and buy what I need.

The 8 oz. cup of peach chunks in light syrup is actually peach chunks in high fructose corn syrup or \"corn with peaches\". HFCS is the heroin is sugars. It is in a lot of things you would not think it is in (even sausage). Comes from corn which is cheaper than sugar cane to grow which is why they use it. Corn is used to quickly fatten beef and it will do the same to you. All the other stuff is great and good for you but is for people who have no knives at home. How o the apples stay fresh???

1. Wendilou: You have your reasoning completely backwards. If you buy this product, you are actually paying someone else $461.40/hr to cut apples for you. Or to put it another way, unless your free time is worth more to you than $461.40/hr, you should slice the apples yourself. Perhaps it makes sense then to say, \"I promised to provide sliced apples, I have 5 minutes to come up with the goods, and my social reputation is worth the $461.40/hr it will now cost to provide them\", but it will be clearer to most people just how much they are getting ripped off (or wasting by not being better organised.) 2. This kind of segues into the question, \"why would anyone pay so much for apples except in a critical apple emergency?\" I suspect the main reason is that most people\'s math skills are so poor they can\'t really see how badly they are being ripped off, while charging everything to the credit card helps hide the cost among you $100 grocery bill (instead of having to hunt through your purse for another ten bucks and realisng you don\'t really need pre-sliced apples.) I live in Australia, and over here the government has recently intriduced a regulation that grocery stores have to display prices in price per unit weight, even if the item is sold in some other unit (which price is also displayed.) The idea is to simply make it easier for the innumerate to compare the prices on, say, a 375 gram soup can to a 425 gram soup can. I think it\'s an excellent idea, but it\'s still too new to see if will work to improve competition. 3. Adding heaps of extra sugar to everything is not good, and certainly increases obesity, dental caries and type II diabetes. However, the idea that fructose in HFCS is worse than other types of sugar is inherently unlikely and very poorly to not at all supported by the evidence. It\'s just the main cause of the problem in the US and Canada simply because it\'s the cheapest (in the US market, due to Federal subsidies) and hence the most common added sugar. Fact is, if those peaches had no added sugar, just their naturally fairly high sugar content that sugar would be: fructose! Or if you sweetened them with delicious, all natural honey, you would be adding a syrup whose sugar composition is almost identical to HFCS! The problem isn\'t the fructose, the problem is adding too damn much of it! 4. The company where I work now spends a lot of effort on packaging, and within a few days of meeting the packaging engineers, I\'ve gone from having contempt for companies that use lots of packaging, through to respect. The fact is, packaging design is a highly advanced science that seeks to minimise product damage (and hence, both environmental impact and consumer costs through passed-on lossage costs) with the absolute minimum possible amount of packaging material and energy (and hence, minimal cost and environmental impact.) People think the total mass of packaging is increasing, but in most areas, they are totally wrong: the mass is actually decreasing, but decreasing by using gossamer-thin advanced materials that *look* like they\'re more, but are so light your kitchen scales are probably unable to detect them. In some areas, it is necessary to use heavier materials, but increasingly these are recycled(with environmental costs of recycling that are *far* lower than glass or metal containers, and lower even than cellulosics like paper or cardboard.) The ideal of course would be to recycle all polymers, but at present this is a big challenge: when a package weighs less than a tenth of gram, you can\'t afford to spend more than fractions of a milli-cent processing it. In some areas -- particularly fresh foods -- packaging mass has increased from traditional levels, but only because the savings have been abolutely huge, and were worth it. The fresh produce market, if monitored all the way from the farm gate to the kitchen waste bin, traditionally had wastage rates of up to 30%, which can be reduced to below 5% by improved packaging. If you consider that 30% multiplied across all food consumption in the world, that\'s a shocking cost. A cost of course in environmental burden of waste disposal, in health burden of vermin control, but also in the simple matter of food cost and availability. It turns out in fact, that packaging design is by far the most cost effective and least environmentally burdensome way to feed the world. It is so important that the government of India has encouraged massive investment in its packaging industry, to feed India\'s hundreds of millions of people below the poverty line. (In the process, India has become the world leader in packaging design, and most of the packaging engineers at my company are Indians.)

If Safeway sold celery in 8 ounce containers, they\'d ask $2.84 for it, according to an independent analysis of the grocery store\'s pricing. That seems pretty expensive.

Celery is going to be the new currency, so that price is cheap. You heard it here first.

Cutting is too difficult, and my time is extremely valuable. It is easier to buy the prepackaged vegetables at any cost.

Well I never! How could they? I mean 14 Oz? .. and yet you can buy celery by the bunch for like 2.99 or something and you get like 28oz. But you have to wash it & trim it yourself.

Shockingly degenerate. Although I do like the Kraft Easy Mac series, and I used to sneer at it because...why? Why can\'t you just make a box of mac & cheese and take some with you in a suitable container?

Wow, you\'re better off buying a plastic cup, bottle of water, and a knife and a whole thing of celery and making it yourself in the car during the ride home and still come off cheaper R2.

In Houston, I\'ve gotten a huge tray of cut carrots, celery, broccoli, and baby tomatoes with two types of dip for $4.99. I did the math and it was better than individually buying and doing it myself. Check for the stuff that\'s a day or two from the \"sell by\" date. It\'ll be ridiculously cheap!

I\'d much rather pay $15 for 2lbs of cut apples than $5 for a 5lb bag of whole apples (which won\'t be rotten at the end of the day).

Jesus Christ... I get a 20lb box of amazing local organic fruits and veggies delivered a block away from my house every week for $20. Sure, you\'ve gotta wash it (and cut it! horrors!) yourself...
