In 2007, Donald Trump entered the meat market with his line of Trump Steaks.
With Trump’s entry into the race for the White House, the Trump Steaks brand has taken center stage as Trump’s opponents attack the meat line’s decline.
When the steaks were first released, then-Palm Beach Post reporter Charles Passy wondered how Trump’s cuts compared with the rest of the market.
Passy took on the challenge, setting up a taste test where he compared a Trump Steaks ribeye with similar steaks from Publix, Winn-Dixie, Costco and the now-closed North Palm Beach store Nebraska Meats.
How did the steaks stack up? Here are the grades from the taste test:
Trump Steaks: A
Nebraska Meats: B plus
Publix: C plus
Winn-Dixie: C minus
