Actually the German Potato salad we buy at our local Wally World, and Publix, along with Kroger is quite good for a caned product. It is tangy and well flavored. Goes great with some good Polish Kielbasa and sourcrout. Not something you want on a regular basis, but good enough when you don't want to cook an elaborate meal. Quick and out of a can, (except the Kielbasa of course) ready in about 15 minutes. Follow with your favorite antacid for desert if you have a sensitive stomach.

Read is the local brand available here and even has a suggestion on the label on how to enjoy with some good Bar B Que! Can't beat that! Try it, you might be surprised and like it!

Blessings,

Omar

One thing I learned from all my years in the Navy, Tabasco can make anything taste good enough to eat. Hope you got some handy.

I don't know about their German potato salad, but Kroger's regular old mayo potato salad is pretty good. I still like the emotional bonus of making my own -- that, and the bacon bits I put in mine -- but I could eat a bucket of Kroger's potato salad in a weekend, and be happy about it.

You never, ever know..........

These were a prize:

This is true. Yesterday I saw some lovely chuck steaks and chuck mock tenders that appeared worth the coin. No butcher on site though as everything is precut from their distributor at this store (It's a small one, little larger than an average strip mall dollar store) and always too thin. Still, I was tempted and if I had a refrigerator in my cubicle I'd have picked up a package. Usually though the "better" cuts have almost no fat content with little to no marbling. Those pork necks though, I might go back for some of those. Their turkey necks are cheap too.

NOW! As to the German Potato Salad in a can. I had read the list of ingredients, which was non offensive and offered at least decent nutritional value. Too much sugar though as the third ingredient down, but at least it wasn't HFCS. So, last night was pretty much fend for yourself at dinner and I opened up the can, drained it a little and dumped the contents in a bowl and nuked it. Needed a little salt, and I added a few black olives. It was edible. Way too sweet, but still, basic institutional food. Might make a decent get in the mood dish for watching Orange Is The New Black. Redhot didn't try any after she asked how it was and I paused before answering...then decided she didn't want any just based on that pause. She knows me. Something about how I say the word "um...". But, I was hungry and wound up eating about two thirds of the can with my sandwich, tossing the rest as it wasn't worth taking up precious fridge space.

If you just gotta do it,

I reccommend Chicken in a can to go with the Potato salad in a can!

My wife (German) and I (Czech), have been eating the stuff for as long as we can remember. Love it! Different brand though. Nice and tangy and not too sweet. A must have with brats.

I recently saw canned German Potato Salad here at Aldi, which might be similar to Save A Lot (not sure). It's the first I remember seeing it there (or anywhere). I was curious, but didn't pick it up. Mostly because of the potatoes (carbs and all).
