Acme Super Markets in NJ S*ck


Interesting. I’ve never seen this on their higher end cuts. On the cheaper cuts you can literally see the piercings. I actually found this out many years ago when preparing some lower end cut. It might have been when making jerky. If you look closely you can see it but you have to be looking for it to notice.

As for bacteria, I dont care. I’m going to die from something lol. If people want to eat well done steak, let them.


Only one doctor, I have a team of specialists keeping this finely tuned machine afloat and not listing badly to starboard.

Thanks to this thread I hate Acme and have never set foot in one. When I hear Acme I think of the crummy products Wile E. Coyote used to try and thwart the Roadrunner.


The Acme in Manasquan is a seasonal store. In the winter I’ll only stop in for emergency non-perishables, and will still check expiration dates. In the summer, with so many renters in the area, product moves much quicker. I’ll buy produce that I pick myself but never dairy or deli.

My regular grocery stores are the Shoprites on Route 34 in Wall, or the one in Neptune, plus various “ethinic” markets, including Super Supermarket in AP, Asian Food Market in Marlboro, the Edison H-Mart, and Fattal’s in Patterson.

" The company is never clearly defined in Road Runner cartoons but appears to be a conglomerate which produces every product type imaginable, no matter how elaborate or extravagant—most of which never work as desired or expected. In the Road Runner cartoon Beep, Beep, it was referred to as “Acme Rocket-Powered Products, Inc.” based in Fairfield, New Jersey. Many of its products appear to be produced specifically for Wile E. Coyote; for example, the Acme Giant Rubber Band, subtitled “(For Tripping Road Runners)”. "

My family has been shopping at Shoprite since the 1960s, and the Aberdeen one is close and has a big kosher selection. I also shop at Costco (duh!), Asian Food Mart, Aldi, and Patel’s in Parlin, with occasional forays elsewhere for specific items.

Stop and Shop is way too expensive, and Acme and Foodtown are just unappealing.


I don’t understand how Stop and Shop stays open. They are so expensive when compared with ShopRite directly across the street. And I’ve always been disappointed with their produce.

Over price and just the overall quality of the stores, Shop Rite blows Stop and Shop out of the water. For them having been in head to head competition for so many years I don’t know how Stop n Shop has stayed in business.

(FYI in the Stop n Shop mall is Demarco’s deli, one of the best deli’s in the area. Used to be an awesome Italian deli but since moving into the strip mall from the stand alone building in the parking lot they cut way back on their prepared foods. I assume the opening of Livoti’s up the road really hit their business. Anyway great subs!! )


Agreed on those sandwiches and we recently went to a party where they catered from Demarco’s. Super delicious. Maybe this belongs in another thread but any tips on where I can find really good cured meats (salami, sopressata etc) and cheeses? I love to buy this stuff for my dad but Livoti’s and Demarco’s were a severe disappointment.


Try Ferrucci’s in Little Silver and maybe even Sickles.


Thanks - I’ve never been to Ferrucci’s and went to Sickles once. Completely forgot about them. Good tips!

Please report back! :slight_smile:

Someone on this board (begging forgiveness, poster) reported that Gianna’s in Atlantic Highlands makes their own soppressata.


Fair Haven Acme is downright frightening. I avoid it. The one in Little Silver is convenient and does have a good selection of gluten free items. But I do most of my shopping either at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods or Sickles Market (I do like their meats but pricey.) Also like Stop and Shop.


Fair haven is probably the biggest waste land of food I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe an affluent town can be such a wreck. Lol


It’s true. Not even decent restaurants. That sushi place is the worst.


The nauvoo fire place is one perk :slight_smile:


True, but their menu is so boring.

Tavolo Pronto is pretty good. Have had their food at beach club and thought it was good, so there’s that!!
