I would rather see someone buying Schwann's than Ramen noodles.

Ice cream has more nutritional value than that junk. I'm serious. That said and there are elderly folks on FS who buy Schwanns because they can't get out. I know my grandma does when he comes by, she buys a few days wort of the healthier options so my aunt and uncle can take her to the store on their day off. The woman's eyesight is awful and she has no use of her legs, with limited use of her right arm thanks to a stroke. It'seasy for her to prepare when my aunt has to work late, it comes to her when someone can't get her to the store until Saturday and it's Tuesday.

So for the elderly and disabled it gives them the option to buy food they can prepare themselves and that they on't have to find a ride to the grocery store to buy.
