I've noticed something interesting while shopping. When buying certain perishables such as Milk dairy and bread I've found that the "natural" or "organic" offerings often outlast the cheaper generic brands. For example, I drink my coffee with half-and-half and have noticed that Kleinpeter (a local dairy) and Horizon keep much longer than their generic store-brand alternatives, sometimes by more than a week. I also buy "Nature's Own" brand bread and have kept loaves in their package in my cabinets for weeks after their "use-by" date without ANY mold growth or staling. I'm I nuts or is there something about these more expensive alternatives that makes them keep longer?
