Why does the macaroni salad and potato salad you buy from the deli counter at the grocery store taste so crappy?

Yet, we buy it to take to a cook out or a picnic when we are in a hurry? lol
What the heck do they make that stuff out of?Its all runny, shouldnt the dressing me nice and thick and creamy? I thought that stuff was supposed to be like homemade. Yuck.
Do you know how they make it?
Do you like it?

  • I think it's so that you can appreciate homemade foods more!

  • It tastes like crap because it's made out of crap.

  • The grocery store deli I buy from makes all their own salads, so they are fresh and homemade. I also worked in a grocery store deli and we MADE the salads everyday, I even have a "secret" receipe for one of the salads made at the deli.
