Is anyone familiar with the Black Bear product line made exclusively for Shop Rite? I love hot dogs and saw theirs in the Shop Rite, but was never moved to buy them. I thought they were some cheap off the wall brand. My wife starting buying their deli meats and they were fantastic! Best roast beef i've had. I liked it better than Thumann's and Boar's Head. They even have great salads.

I figured if their deli meats are so good; maybe their franks are too. I bought the all beef franks and was blown away. The best dog I've bought in a supermarket or anywhere else for that matter. The only dog that comes close is Usinger's Angus frank from Wisconsin. I contacted Shop Rite via their website and found out that the entire Black Bear product line is made for Shop Rite by Dietz and Watson of Philadelphia. Their meats are also top of the line. Was wondering what you think about Black Bear. Too bad they don't promote it more.
