Bumble Bee Seafoods has entered an agreement with Norway Foods for distribution into the USA. (Cans of sardines people!)
Nabisco Inc is completing its purchase of Favorite Brands International, Inc. (Nabisco had been one of the entities asked by the Feds to ramp up production last summer (99) and had agreed to do so.)
Keebler is closing down its Lake Bluff bakery (Illionis) and is moving production to other facilities. It came to this conclusion after doing a "review" back in 1998.

Sardines! Compact, easily storable, nutritious, stinky and delicious!

I much prefer kippered herring.
You can usually get tins at Kmart for something like .65 a piece, in smoked, dijon mustard, and tabasco flavors.
I like 'em all.
And unlike most sardines, they *don't* have the intestines included.
(I was still a young lad when I realized that "skinless and boneless" generally meant "has skin, has bones, has no intestines". Early version PC-speak, I guess.)

Thanks, KOS. A tremendous void does indeed need to be filled. You have done so rather admirably. Do continue, by all means.

So, KOS, when are we going to chocolate-pudding wrestle?

Sardines? Get real! By the time you skin them, gut them, debone them, and filet them, there's nothing left but two little itty-bitty eyeballs!
