When it comes to the quantities you can buy food in, it seems like it's always about making more more more bigger bigger bigger . My question to you is, what are some foods that you want to be sold in smaller quantities There are certain foods that I really enjoy eating from time to time, but I never buy them because half of it always seems to spoil before I can eat it or it requires me to cook so much of it at one meal that I end up throwing most of it out. Off the top of my head, some examples for me would be: 

  • Kraft Dinner- I like to cook a box from time to time, but I hate needing to cook the entire box because I always end up throwing a good chunk of it in the garbage because I just don't want to eat all of it; and reheated KD is pretty gross.
  • Lettuce- I enjoy a nice salad, or salad in wrap, but I can only ever eat one or two a week before I get sick of eating them. So every time I buy a head of lettuce I always end up throwing out half of it, or forcing myself to eat it more regularly than I care to in such a short time that I end up getting sick of them and never buying it for months at a time.

Tomatoes. You can buy one or two, but they're overpriced, so you get the bargain bag, or whatever. Then most go bad before I can finish one. So I started planting them and just grabbing one from my garden when I needed it and that solved it. Plus, if I get too many at once, I can make homemade ketchup or spaghetti sauce. Yum!

Don't buy heads of lettuce (ice berg I imagine) but rather a leafy kind, something like Oak Leaf maybe. They're usually much smaller and easier to work with anyway.

I had to look up what Kraft Dinner was.

Anyway, watermelon. I hate buying the small portions, because they are so overpriced. Buying a huge watermelon for just me? Nah.

I'll agree with Kraft Dinner. I always end up dumping half of the box into the damn garbage.

I want smaller loafs of bread. Oh and Sour Cream; even the smallest tubs go bad before I even make my way halfway through them. I want little one portion sized thingies.

Well, Costco is a bulk retailer, that would defeat the purpose.

Apples. I pick how many I want and place them in a bag. I always pick too many.

Yes! Although a softshell taco quesadilla sounds interesting.

Sugar. What the fuck am I supposed to do with a 25KG bag of sugar?

Bean bag?

Its all bag! I've made a terrible mistake!

The concept is fundamentally flawed.

Kraft Dinner? OH! You mean Mac 'N Cheese!

Not sure why that had to have a different name for Canada ...

#29 Posted by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

I wish McDonald's sold a mini big mac. I hold that burger as one of the greatest hamburgers ever made but no way I'm eating more than one every couple of months. If it cam in a miniature form though............

In the UK it's called Cheesey Pasta.

You can always give it to the dog.

@satansmagichat: Kind of silly that they gave the same product three different names. Oh Kraft, you so silly ...

We Canadians are classy. We can't be eating "Cheesy Pasta" or "Mac n Cheese".

Bananas. I always end up throwing at least 2 out.

#35 Edited by PenguinDust (12450 posts) -

Hot dog buns. I don't wish for fewer in a bag, I'd just like the buns themselves to be a little smaller so that there is less left over bun after the hot dog is eaten. I know I could just buy bigger hot dogs, but that's not always an option.

Chicken crispy strips. They used to have packs of 5 at a decent prize, and they did reduce it to packs of 3, but with an even larger price tag '-_-

I wouldn't mind if there were packs of 2 or even single strips that were sold for a reasonable price, I'd probably be consuming them more often if that was the case.

I am not 100% sure what Kraft Dinner is, but if it is just the dried macaroni and cheese powder in the box - what is stopping you from only using half the package and halving the water/milk or whatever you add to it?

You should talk to Vinny about that.

#43 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2312 posts) -

The McGriddle could stand to be maybe 15% smaller. It's just at the point where you feel a little sick after you finish one, which defeats the purpose because a McGriddle is a thing of joy.

@fini_fly: Eh. I can't wait until that stupid meme dies. A pox on the house of the idiot that created it.

@crusader8463: I like it because a lot of things are true. And as silly as they are, they could be used as an eye opener to many who take for granted the social and political benefits of living in the first world. I posted that meme pic half jokingly and half in disgust at the amount of waste that some bombers admit to.

Basically everything at a resturant. I don't want to deal with leftovers, I detest leaving food on my plate (growing up in a Catholic school all we heard about was the starving Ethiopians) and am currently (successfully) losing weight. I don't need or want an extra scoop of rice or another pile of noodles on my plate.

Well the alternative is forcing food down your throat even though you're full since most people don't have a starving ethiopian on hand to give the leftovers to.

330 ml cans. I usually drink about 75% and have to almost force myself to finish the drink.
