Hamburger or Hot Dog?
The package on the left contains hot dog rolls. Note that the label says they are hamburger buns. Since both were at the same price I said what the heck and bought them anyway.
On the way home I started thinking. Well, the quality control was pretty bad if they put the buns in the wrong bag. Should I worry? I finally said just eat the rolls.
What is interesting from the perspective of an old computer guy is what this did to the Walmart supply chain system. They sold a lot of hamburger buns and no hot dog rolls. I predict a clearance sale on hamburger buns in the next couple of weeks.
