Everybody knows that store brand foods — pasta, canned veggies, cookies, condiments, whatever — are cheaper than the national brands. The assumption is that the national brands taste better. Consumer Reports did a study and found they don’t. In blind tests, trained tasters compared a big national brand with a store brand in 29 food categories. Store and national brands tasted about equally good 19 times. Four times, the store brand won. Just six times did the national brand won. The store-brand foods Consumer Reports tested cost an average of 27 percent less than big-name counterparts. The magazine says price gaps have less to do with what goes into the package than with the research, development, and marketing costs that help build a household name.

Dateline.... AUSTRIA

In Austria police were summoned to the report of a break-in at a furniture store. Investigating officers found the glass front door smashed but once inside couldn’t find anyone. They were getting ready to leave when an officer heard a sound — a sound of someone snoring coming from the carpet racks. And that’s where they found their crook, obviously tired out from the hard work of breaking in.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A woman in Scotland was unpacking her groceries when she spotted Jesus’ face in the discoloration of a potato skin. The potato was included in a larger bag of potatoes that cost Nikki Halkerston roughly $1.50. Halkerston said, “I was staring at it, and it was just quite obvious it was Jesus’ face. It was just looking at me. … I called my husband into the kitchen, and he’s usually really skeptical about these sorts of things. He never gets over-excited about anything but even he agreed it looked like Jesus!” Halkerston has since eaten the potato.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Federal authorities reined in a Long Island, New York pharmaceutical company employee who allegedly swiped hundreds of thousands of dollars in horse drugs from his work — and then sold them directly to veterinarians and trainers. 58-year-old Gregory Settino was arrested on an indictment charging him with swiping the equine medication and pawning it at New York race tracks, including Belmont Park. He allegedly mounted the plot “in order to enrich himself and without regard for how his sale of the medical products could potentially endanger the health of horses,” acting US Attorney Seth D. DuCharme said in a statement. Authorities said that the medication was valued at more than $1 million. Settino allegedly pocketed more than $600,0000 from hocking the drugs to vets and trainers. The indictment charges Settino with theft of medical products and making a false statement to a federal agent. If convicted, he could face up to 25-years in prison. (
