I returned today to Gourmet Marketplace in Little Ferry, where I found products from Jerry's Gourmet & More in Englewood on my first visit Dec. 15.
I wanted to get a few bottles of a great-tasting balsamic vinegar of Modena called Ponti, 99 cents for a 16.9 ounces (look for the word "primus" on the label).
Imported Lensi-brand Italian pasta was on sale for only 50 cents a pound, but when I got home, I saw "Jan. 17, 2010" on one of the packages and wondered if that was an expiration date.
Does dried pasta "expire"? Do you remember the TV commercial that said dried pasta outlasts most marriages?
I bought a 16-ounce package of spaghetti and another of fettuccine. I also saw ziti, but you have to buy four, 1-pound packages for $2.
Gourmet Marketplace is in the former Valley Fair
on Bergen Turnpike, near the Little Ferry Circle,
now called Value Fair. Credit-card minimum.
