    I had a Smuckers plant give me 4 jars of peanut butter/jelly swirl. They gave the jars away that ddin't have the perfect swirls to whoever wanted them.

    I can remember 2 cases of Vienna sausages. I haven't had one since. :)

    Then I got a whole case of beef loins. About 70 lbs worth. One got jabbed by a forklift. I still had two weeks before home time, so I gave them to some Pilot employees. One of the whole rounds I traded one of our shuttle drivers in Gulfport, MS for some shrimp on credit. He sold fresh shrimp on the side. Before I could get back, the company closed the terminal and he disappeared.

    That was over $300 worth of meat. I wish I could of took it home.
    NavigatorWife Thanks this.

    I get sherbert water ice pretzels burritos anything my company makes that gets damaged stays on the truck. Sometimes I try to give it away. But most times I trash it I always ask on cb at truck stop but a lot of times I can't give our stuff away. If you ever hear me yelling who wants water ice burritos or pretzels come get some it's good stuff.

    My wife works for a egg processing company so when it comes time for the R&D crew to clean out the freezer we score pretty well and fill our freezer usually. Ive gotten soda, cereal even now I will get a bag of freshly processed bacon pieces made for bacon bits. Those are good. There were others that I cant recall.

    Midwest Bottling used to have a cooler full of soda from busted cases, you could grab up to a six pack every time. Bought a case of king crab legs off a guy selling them at the Petro in Portage, Wi. Those were excellent.

    I don't sell my stuff I give it away because chances are my backhaul would be dry and what am I going to do with it then. The other day in tx I was down by Houston giving away cases of burritos.
