Anyone else have an issue with this? I have often read on here of ppl who buy the meat that is marked for quick sale. Yesterday I decided to give it a try. I bought some drumsticks. They marked 1/2 price and the sell by date was yesterday. I cooked them last night along with some fresh chicken breasts. I did not tell anyone the drumsticks were reduced to sell. My oldest ate a chicken breast but not a drumstick (he took one bite). I asked him why and he said "I don't know, the meat just tastes kind of weird" . I noticed my younger DS who had two drumsticks ate only a couple of bites and left the rest. I am not a dark meat fan, so I wasn't planning to try it. After DS said it had a weird taste, I couldn't bring myself to taste it and just threw it away. The chicken looked fine. It didn't have any sort of unusual smell. My kids aren't that picky of eaters (esp. when it comes to fried chicken, which is a favorite but I rarely make. It was a special back to school dinner.) I'm sure many will say they have had great success and I don't doubt it. But, have others had bad experiences like this? Was this a complete fluke? It seems I remember some sort of news expose on meat depts. changing dates on the packaging from years ago. I was just disappointed that my "money saver" ended up being filler for the trash. But, I am glad that no one got sick.
