A blog reader e-mailed me this weekend, asking if I had ever reflected on why I never bought Armanino Foods of Distinction. This reader (who happens to have a quality blog himself) rightly noted Armanino's many attractive characteristics. The answer is yes. I have asked myself why I never bought any Armanino. I've missed out on a nice return on what should have been a slam dunk investment. I had reasons, some good, some less so, and hopefully examining them publicly will benefit me in my future efforts.
