Cousins to Vienna Sausages, but darker? Try some Prairie Belt Smoked Sausage! In case you didn’t know or can’t read, the serving suggestion on the front shows that the sausages are best eaten on a plate, stacked. Thank you for that.
The sausage is distributed by Castleberry’s Food Company from Augusta, Georgia. We found this gem of a food product on the shelves of a Dollar General store in Sarasota’s Gulf Gate area. Dollar General is a genius font of beautiful old brand names. They also sell big brand names, but have gems like this Prairie Belt sitting on the shelves.
Did you know these facts about Goodlettsville, Tennessee-based Dollar General? We pulled it from their site:
- $9.5 billion in sales in fiscal 2007
- 8,000+ stores in 35 states
- 9,000 square-foot stores
- 5,400 core products from America’s most-trusted manufacturers
