So many food brands, so few good choices.

At least now I know whose ass to kick for making horrible Banquet TV Dinners. Ugh.

What a contrast - Libby's and Wolfgang Puck's! I prefer the latter.

That is a very underwhelming line of products. I guess manwich is ok.

C'mon, Matt, admit it -- you like to Squeeze-n-Go with the Swiss Miss.

Actually, I like to dress up like Peter Pan with a Jiffy Pop dish on my head, and take a trip to Knott's Berry Farm.

sample tube of "Squeez 'n go" for our future generation..our future Prime Ministers and Presidents. Beware of contents! 60Cal.,2g fats,7g sugars. Is this in aid of obesity and diabetes? about putting our kids ahead of our pocket books. I'll return sample under seperate cover.

Where can I get Dennison's Lima Beans and Ham? Its one of the best products that you made.

FROM: Paul
DATE: Thursday October 20, 2005 -- 7:37:35 pm
Well, thanks Joe! Ryan and I really appreciate it - we spend a lot of time each day (1 hour) dedicated to making the finest Lima Beans & Ham that money can buy.

I'm really surprised you haven't found it at your local Walget, or Tar-Mart, because we sell them at those stores coast-to-coast (except for Arizona and Tennessee - child labor laws, sheesh!) Thanks for your feedback on our fine products!

Dennison’s Lima Beans & Ham is the best. It is not at my local Stater Bros. Market. According to it is no longer be produced. WHY?????? It was the best. I would purchase a case of it from you. My grandfather laments about how he can’t find it, at Vons, at Albertson’s and at Ralph’s. Why not make it again???? Or at least let me buy the xases you have hidden in the cupboard!

Paul September 11, 2006, 5:29 pm

Unfortunately, Kim, I need those xases for zoving boxes. After all, one doesn’t zove every day.

That said, we here at the Ping are sorry, but we do not make Dennison’s Lima Beans and Ham. There was a big health scare with those recently… you know… the recall.

Where can I get Dennison’s Lima Beans and Ham in Texas?
There are no Stater Bros.out here.

Looking for Dennisons Ham & Lima Beans…. I also live in So. California and would buy an entire case, if I could find them….



Millicent Williams March 14, 2018, 11:32 pm
