Publix and Hess Stations were the only places selling half & half without any additives. Publix was more reasonable. I do not buy Publix cream any longer. I buy my cream at WalGreens but it is more expensive. So I have a choice, pay more money or stop buying cream altogether.
Do you intend, any time soon going back to producing your half & half without additives?
I do my best to buy mostly produce and never any packaged or prepared foods with the exception of low sodium products.
Modern technology has prolonged the shelf life of our food and shortened ours.
The money I spend on food is still cheaper than for doctors and drugs.
