Comment of the Day: “FreeFoods NYC is Fantastic!”

This comment popped up on our post about the new location of FreeFoods NYC, and as hard as this is going to be to believe, I don’t think it’s a shill:

“I went there yesterday.  I was so busy that I didn’t have time to post.  The food was FANTASTIC!!  Everything was fresh and delicious.  They really know how to use flavors.  I picked from the by-the-pound section.  I had duck breast with some tasty sides, shrimp wrapped in bacon, some brown rice type thing with mushrooms, and filet mignon over some humus type sauce on toast.  I cannot begin to tell you how delicious all of these were besides the shrimp.  The shrimp was average.  The Filet and the rice were absolutely spectacular!”

Then things get ridiculous…

“They also had some dessert freebies.  They have a no pumpkin pumpkin pie that is probably the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever had. The price… “$7 per half pound.”  That’s what the guy said to me.  I don’t care what the price is.  This place is worth it.  Just get a half pound of the filet and it’s pretty much a steak lunch. -Harry”

The best pumpkin pie you have ever had, didn’t have pumpkin in it?  Seriously?  The BEST YOU’VE EVER HAD. Why not just say, ”it was so good, I thought it had pumpkin.”  Or even, “it’s as good as any pumpkin pie in Midtown.”  But, best…pumpkin…pie…ever?   Has to be a shill, right?

Surprisingly this commenter has posted many comments, none of them about FreeFoods… so unless Harry has been posting “undercover” for months, in order to give his shill credibility on this very day- this comment appears to be legitimate.  Whether or not you chose to listen to him is a completely different story.


  • I’m confused. What is the point of a “no pumpkin” pumpkin pie? Last time I checked pumpkin was both vegetarian and vegan friendly. Are pumpkin allergies on the rise?

  • Overpriced half pound places kill my wallet. I am definitely in the 1 to 1 1/2 pound range when i get lunch at Dishes. I try to kid myself and limit it to one pound (never bone in meat, salads or rice or potatoes) but its HARD. And i eat it all because i feel guilty throwing away food that expensive.
