"Premium Choice" meat -- what does that mean?

CindyJ | | Jul 24, 2011 11:29 AM

I did some shopping today at my local Fresh Market. I bought a couple of nice-looking Porterhouse steaks that were tagged as "Premium Choice" in the meat counter. Does that designation mean something specific, or is it a description fabricated by the store to make shoppers think they're getting something better than just plain old choice?
