Editor's note: Today, I discuss Perdue chicken, Korean pears and Fairway Market in Paramus.
I came across a coupon for a Perdue Oven Ready Chicken or Turkey Roast that shows a smiling Jim Perdue, chairman of Perdue Farms, under a slogan: "We believe in a better chicken."

The coupon page also has a photo of an enormous cooked breast that looks dry. What you can't see are all the antibiotics used to raise the bird.
The "roast" comes in its own cooking bag, which is likely made of plastic. I wonder if there is any transfer of chemicals from the plastic bag to the all-white-meat poultry during the cooking.
Don't waste your money.

H Mart in Little Ferry had a display of large Korean pears near the entrance on Friday -- in a package of three for $6.99 or a box of nine or 10 for about $22.50.
The crisp, juicy Korean-grown pears are a cross between an apple and a pear, and they are carefully wrapped inside the package (see photo).
I also found Kabocha or Kabucha squash for 99 cents a pound, and a 2-pound box of blanched Greenshell Mussels from New Zealand for $6.99.
Bok choy tips were on sale for 88 cents a pound, and plantains were two for a dollar.
Fairway Market in Paramus continues its "shock prices" promotion through Jan. 26.
