    Why do the fast food staff always give you a hundred packs of ketchup, salt, ________ (fill in the blank) when you only want one?

    I found packets of honey mustard and little plastic containers of marinara sauce at White Castle. They also have that spicy brown mustard.

    Most grocery stores that sell prepackaged sandwiches from the deli section have packets of mayo and mustard. I always take one more than I need to build up a reserve supply to take hiking. It's not cool to take more than a few of anything thats free.

    After a little while, they sat near me with a whole bunch of the above things, I heard them speaking Russian and started talking to them as i was heading to Russia in a few more months on a trip across on the trans-siberian train.

    After talking about what a great country America is with all the free condiments and stuff then they said: "What do you want to go there for? and What are you going to eat when you get there" I must say it scared me a bit and saw myself ready to take some of those relish and saltine packs with me for the trip.
    Turned out to be a great trip full of nice people.
    I have read about that train,seen a PBS program documenting the trip, and now to run into someone on WB who has actually done it is kind of amazing. Small world I guess. I have always been told that the Russian people out in the countryside are salt of the earth. I am sure it was a wonderful experience.

    Thumbs up Restaurant supplies...

    When I finally get it together to do the big thru-hike, I'm going to contact a local restaurant supply company and buy case lots of the condiments I need. They offer catsup, mayo, honey, bbq sauce, etc., at reasonable prices. Just check out the yellow pages, Google, whatever. These companies are located in every city & town and are happy to sell to anyone with the $$$.

    Costco has cases of these condiments if you want 1000 of them.

    The thing that I've been looking for is the lemon juice packets.

    Get them right here: http://www.minimus.biz/detail.aspx?ID=247

    Noticed they also have various of the packets you'd need to stock a hiker first aid kit too, good thing as some of what I have getting out dated.

    Just an FYI for everyone - the "honey" at KFC isn't really honey. If you look at the package it is labeled "honey sauce". Mostly sugary syrup made to taste like honey. My dad raised honey bees while I was growing up - believe me there is a difference, and I don't like the artificial stuff. Give me the good stuff - straight from the bee.

    Lemon juice packets? Use True Lemon packets instead - it is a powdered version. Awesome stuff! And found in many grocery stores along with the lime and orange versions.

    Yeah I never understood that. It's actually kind of wasteful because no one actually uses them all and most people end up throwing them away instead of saving them.

    I think that is how John Kerry financed his presidentiakl campaign. After all, he is married to Theresa HEINZ Kerry. All those extra, unused Heinz catsup packets had to be paid for..,.where do you think the money went?
