If I had to cop to something, it'd be Pringle's Gourmet - I buy them particularly because the can is way smaller since I can't avoid eating the whole thing at one sitting.


By definition, all Pringle's come in single-serving cans. Regardless of can size.

Now THAT made me laugh, Mike!

My ugly purchase is Banquet Frozen Beef Stroganoff (hey, didn't I just say that wasn't american? I'll bet you can't find this anywhere BUT America....)...FOR THE CROCKPOT.

It's like being too lazy to even use the crockpot. Plug the thing in. Dump in the contents of this bag. Cover, walk away...Oh, and sometimes I mix things up by getting Banquet Frozen Chix and dumplings for the crockpot.

Hey, the kids LOVE this stuff...although I'm not proud of that fact.
