What product do you think of when it's labeled "Premium blend"?

There are some wines that are labeled as Premium Blends. Most are not too bad and some are somewhat blah.

Oh, and I think when they say "Premium blend" they mean only the best ingredients were used to make the product.

Coffee comes to mind for me too. I don’t really think about wine because those are usually labeled ‘red blend’ or some other name relative to the grapes used rather than premium in my experience.

I heard this as a little promo on NPR. It's just not right.

Coffee... that has been blended with lesser and just enough better beans so that i it isn't labeled as a waste product.

I agree with bpath Oh Sophie! Usually more money, but not necessarily better quality.

Yes, the skeptic in me thinks "leftovers." Like if they have various types of product, they may take what's left of each at the end of the production run, mix them together, and call it their "premium blend." I don't think it's a bad thing (as long as it's safe), but the words to describe it are just marketing, IMO.

For me, it's a throwaway product marketing description that means nothing. Like Top Quality or even similar Special Selection or Special Blend. These and similar phrases are over-used with products of all kinds and because of that really convey no meaning at all. I think most people ignore them.

Nothing, unless I know the details, it's just marketing.

Advertising for people to think they are receiving a better product. There are some things that I can think of like dried fruit where care was taken to have every item the same shape, color, and size or as close as nature will allow in a package.

Not sure what makes it premium.

Metamucil Premium Blend is sweetened with plant-based stevia and made with natural flavors and colors

I guess that it has stevia makes it premium to them?

Definitely all about the marketing. And the new container.

Ravencajun, of course you are correct. But I can see 'premium' but 'premium blend"? It really sounds like a joke, doesn't it?
