FRANNY D’ANGELO For the press
Dear Franny the shopaholic: Looking for an old school favorite. It’s called Kissling’s porridge. He is originally from Philadelphia, however, he is now owned by a company called Jaxon. Hoping you can help me locate where I can buy it. Thanks. — Melody, Northfield
Dear Melody: The Jaxon cornmeal mush website has no information on where to buy it. However, try calling the company at 937-890-7350. If any of our readers see it in stores, I’m sure they’ll write it down. I emailed you his link.
Dear Franny the shopaholic: Your column is remarkable! Could you recommend some places where I could buy an OTC hearing aid? Thanks for your help! —A SENIOR
Dear A SENIOR senior: I emailed you on ConsumerAdvocates.org link that gives you 10 of the best over-the-counter hearing aids. For your information, almost six months ago my cousin who has a 60% hearing loss and who has spent thousands of dollars over the years on hearing aids purchased a pair of hearing aids at Costco for around $1,800. She went back 10 times for adjustments but said they were the best she had ever had. But the best part is that if you’re not satisfied after six months, you can get your money back. My friend Gail, a retired audiologist, told my cousin that the company that makes Costco hearing aids is one of the top three hearing aid companies. Hope this helps you.
