What's pissing me off today

This could be a weekly feature, since I get pissed off nearly every day.

Today it's rigatoni and cupcakes.

First, the rigatoni.

Now, I'm part Italian, and had pasta and tomato sauce very Sunday growing up, and usually it was rigatoni and ground beef (meat sauce we called it. You probably know it as Bolagnese.) It was and still is my favorite meal. I asked Mrs. C to buy some at the store. She came back with something that the box said was rigatoni, but the contents were ziti with lines, usually called ziti rigati. Totally different. Bastages. How could they try to pass this off as rigatoni?

About the cupcakes. TastyKake is a regional bakery out of Philly. Usually, I don't trust people from Philly, but I grew up with Tastycake, so they get some slack. Anyway, the chocolte cupcakes are awesome. So, Mrs. C bought me some today and they were terrible.
The cakes were the usual soft delicious chocolate selves, but the icing--bleh.
In the past the icing was thick and fudgey. Now it is wafer thin and tastes stale. They weren't out of date (it's not the 22nd yet) and just crappy.

I'll be sending them a letter explaining that they have a disgruntled customer rather than the one who was previously errrr..... gruntled.

Are you supposed to be eating all this goodness? Well is wasn't good, but it doesn't sound like it's very healthy. Just saying Crotchety.

Have a terrific day. Hopefully Mrs. C. went shopping or something until you cool off about this. :)

There might be someone or something trying to get a message to you...start eating more healthy food...or not

A lot of that happening these days. And smaller quantities in the same-sized packages. But maybe less is not a bad thing in this case.

You are right to bitch about the food stuff. Not too much tastes like it should or used to. Have you ever gone to the store for a simple thing and you have to search through 15 different styles and flavors to try and find the "normal or regular" one? I think your rants are dead on!

You tell them. Keep them on their toes.

I just read the other comments and it made me think. Cupcakes aren't the same as they used to be. The cake is drier, the cream inside is tasteless and sticky, and the icing, well you already told us about the icing.

I'm with you on the tastycakes. It's not the same. BLECH!
