9. Seafood Spread
Sure, it's fish in a tube, but the crab actually tastes great. Stock some in your pantry, and if friends arrives without notice, squirt it on crackers and sprinkle some herring roe ($2.49) on it. You'll be instantly fancy, and your guests will be über-impressed. Win-win.
8. Herring Roe
What can you do with herring roe? Anything you can do with caviar -- only cheaper. Use these golden pearls as a garnish on deviled eggs, slather them on a cracker (see above), or simply spoon them out of the bottle and entertain your inner glutton. For $2.49 a jar, you can afford to live big.
