From advent food to leftovers, contemporary young people are really working hard to practice the four words of “thrift and thrift”.
On a social app, search for “leftovers” and you can get more than 40,000 relevant notes, from steaks, meat, ham, to bread, biscuits, candy… All kinds of food “leftovers” are very popular. These “scraps” sold by the pound are targeted by young consumers and have become a new generation of “money-saving treasures” after “advent food”.
Open the door to a new world,
Snack freedom made easy?
Many young people have had such an experience: casually visit a supermarket, take a few snacks casually, buy a single look, hundreds of yuan! Distressed! So, someone found a new world online.
Netizen Qianqian recently bought 1,000 grams of leftover fruit peel and spent less than 8 yuan. To her surprise, the peels sent were not fragmentary packaging, they not only looked regular, but also had sufficient portions, and the taste was similar to that of big brands. “In my opinion, buying off-cuts snacks is cost-effective and avoids waste, killing two birds with one stone,” she says. ”
On social networking sites, in a video with high clicks, a blogger “lovingly recommended” the scraps of Yurun bacon “Yurun Crushed Head”, and typed the price gap on the screen: crushed head bacon 18.6 yuan / jin, genuine bacon 68 yuan / jin, the difference between the two is 3.6 times.
In addition to online purchases, leftovers in offline food stores are also very popular, and a bakery near Nanjing Agricultural University has even become an “Internet celebrity” because of leftover bread.
This popular bread is called “delicious bread”, and the pastry chef performs a secondary processing of the bread side, adding milk, butter, sugar, walnuts, raisins and other ingredients to combine the scattered leftovers into a whole, and the students affectionately call it “ugly bread”. Some students said: “Although it is not good-looking, it is really delicious, 12 yuan a weight of 1 pound, you can eat for a long time, very cost-effective.” ”
For less than half, or even one-third of the price, you can buy big-name snacks; For ten dollars, you can buy a pound of bread. It not only satisfies the appetite but also protects the wallet kun, are you moved?
It’s not easy to say that I love you,
Is it easy to become popular and difficult to follow?
After the popularity of “leftovers”, some people issued soul torture on the endless variety of “leftovers” snacks that appeared on the Internet: “Where are so many leftovers?” ”
And many chopping parties who “sobered” over again took stock of their orders and found that they were pitted.
Yang Lin recently followed some bloggers to place a few orders of “leftover snacks”, which made her realize that what was wrong was an experience of buying fragrant rice crackers. After receiving the goods, she found that the normal sale of fragrant rice crackers was priced at 19.8 yuan and 750g. Carefully flipping through the purchase records, she found that the fragrant rice crackers she ordered were 14.5 yuan 500g. In this way, the basmati rice cake leftovers are 0.26 yuan more expensive per 100g than normal fragrant rice crackers.
This is no accident. Remember the bacon offcuts recommended by the blogger just now? On a shopping website, two stores of the same brand of non-crushed head complete bacon products set the price of 1kg at 34 yuan, and more preferential stores also have a price of 1kg for 29.8 yuan. And search for Yurun crushed head bacon, the price of 500 grams in three stores ranges from 15.8 yuan to 21 yuan, and if converted to 1 kilogram, it is 31.6 yuan – 42 yuan.
Math problems are not difficult, witty as you must have discovered: if you do not carefully screen, then it is likely to spend more money than the price of the original and buy “scraps” …
In addition, as “off-cut snacks” become the “traffic password” of bloggers, commodity prices continue to rise. For example, some netizens found that a 500-gram squid silk scrap, the previous price was 17.8 yuan, but soon after the blogger’s evaluation video was launched, its price rose to 34 yuan, nearly 1 times.
What should be paid more attention to than the price is the food safety of these “scraps”.
For example, the scraps that claim to be a big-name biscuit are not completely sealed, nor can they find the date of production, and the information such as the place of delivery cannot prove that the biscuits come from the original factory. However, if you check with the seller for details such as “whether there is a production date on the package”, you only get an ambiguous answer such as “don’t mind not shooting” or “the date is fresh, please feel free to shoot”.
Tempting words such as “super cheap” and “super large bag” make people “chop” orders under the dazzling “chopping hands”, and the seemingly cost-effective price often makes people ignore food safety issues such as informal packaging and no clear formal product description. Relevant industry insiders said that before consumers place a single off-end food, they must carefully identify the source and quality of the product, do not be misled by online evaluations and buyers’ praise, and do not blindly be greedy for cheapness.
