well after the comments I had to go get some
the guy at my one Tru Value tried charging me regular price, I told him about the sale flyer, he said his store doesnt send them out, I told him I saw it on their website after selecting his store and then "view flyer for that store"
He gave it to me for the sale price, I just looked in the bag and it looks like mill scraps, nothing special. not that there is anything wrong with mill scraps, thats what RO is for the most part
maybe this is an old bag, I dont know. Would not surprise me
I might try another tru value that has a big bbq dept by me. I am sure at least their stock will be fresh as they are a bigger, busier place
