It was expensive. I was wondering if anyone has bought these before? Did you like or did not like it? Some of my relatives told me it better be worth it. I have searched the Internet for these exact turkeys but could not find much information. Now I regret it a bit that I spent that much money on this turkey.

I hope it tastes great and it's juicy when it's cooked. So please share if you have bought this exact same turkey before.

p.s. by the way I still have the receipt in case I need to return it.

It can't have cost you that much that you would return it surely. Don't be stingy, cook it, eat it, and if it's ****, don't buy it again.

You wouldn't buy a bag of chips, Google the review and make a decision based on that would you?

How much does it cost? A Google search reveals approximately $3.99/lb or $8.78/kg?
I buy kosher meats, not because I'm a religious Jew, but because they taste the best. Unfortunately they are much more expensive than other meats, but at least I know that they are forbidden by Jewish dietary law from doing anything funky to it (it is totally organic), if they did, then it just wouldn't really be considered kosher meat.

I would keep it to be honest. If you went to return it, in some states it has to be thrown out because of possible tampering of the product. Sure you would get your money back, but the turkey would be wasted. If you want to do something, donate it and get the receipt and write it off as a donation. My thoughts on it.

I never understood the label on foods that said, "if you are unsatisfied with this product, please send it back to us and we will refund you." If something is inedible then I'll throw it away, but if it just isn't all that great I'll still eat it. In either case, I make a mental note not to buy it again and move on.

I also don't understand the idea of going for organic/bio food over the other stuff, but at the same time I appreciate that other people have different thoughts on the subject. For me a turkey is a turkey, which is to say it's a delicious piece of food. I don't focus on how it was looked after when it was alive.

Are you saying you truly don't understand the reasons for buying organic/bio over chemically processed/bastardized food? Or that you personally don't care what you eat? I know it sounds like I'm being combative, but I just didn't know how else to put it. It's not meant to be rude, just curious as to what you actually mean by it.

I personally eat whatever I enjoy the taste of, processed or not. However I do fully understand the ramifications of what I eat.
