I went to the local Kroger to get an extra can of green beans and found that all the fresh turkeys had been marked down to $6. I bought a $50 fresh butterball for $6. I stuck it in the freezer and may cook it for fun or practice in the next month.

I know, I know. I stood at the turkey case for several minutes debating whether I could buy more than one. My freezer is packed with a pig that I bought and I didn't think I could fit more than one turkey in there. If I find myself needing to go back to the store today, I'll take that as a sign that I need to buy another turkey.

Great price!
No such thing as a "fresh" Butterball. It was just thawed already.

I would have thought so too, but the following is from the Butterball website:

"Fresh Whole Turkey is all natural and never frozen."

The work "Frozen" leaves a lot of room. There is "Fresh" that is chilled to a certain temp that if it fell on your toe you would swear it was frozen and there is "Frozen that is guaranteed hard as a bowling ball.

Most of your thing's that you get is not "Phresh" in this world anymore...not even your bananas that are still greenish on the outside,the've been held in a sort of coma for a while.

Yeah, I've heard about this too. As I understand it, as long as the blood doesn't freeze, it can be called "not frozen". A few more degrees and it's technically frozen.

Either way....great score! I'm goin to go to Kroger now to check and see if I can get the same thing!

I heard the flap years ago when they came outwith these definitions of fresh and frozen turkeys. above 0*F is considered fresh, but don't drop it, it may break and will dent your toe.

I know my Turkey was fresh for sure. Got him from the farm the day he met his maker! Several of his friends were giving me the hairy tukey eyeball as I walked away with my bag! :shock:

So, I had to go to my local Kroger to see for myself!
Not as good a deal, but still....

Honeysuckle fresh turkeys: regularly $2.19/lb, on sale for $0.99/lb.
Butterball fresh turkeys: regularly $1.79/lb, on sale for $0.79/lb.

Got 2 16 lb Butterballs!!!


And, they actually said FRESH, never frozen on the package, so at least I know they weren't just the regular thawed frozen butterballs.

Good deal! Our 14 pound Thanksgiving bird was only $5.85. I'm cheap so that suits me just fine. :wink:

You know that there is a cure for this problem you seem to have.... That would be a second freezer!!!!!!!!


BTW, great score!
