You can't compete with the per pound price of the Lloyd's and such in the frozen food section of the grocery - so don't even try to match their price point.
Here, Lloyds goes for 6.99/# and Curly's is the other brand that goes for 8.99/# with coupons
. Both taste horrible, their bbq sauce does not do well being microwaved. I would sell my pp for 7$/# and state quality as said in the quote above. I would also do quality control by freezing a bag for a month, then eating it myself, if I don't like it others probably wont, slap on a use by fresh/frozen date, and let word get around. I am a huge fan of samples by the way lol.
