Grocery Outlet - January 2010

It seems $1 week is happening with the big bargain being 9 oz of Oscar Meyer shaved deli smoked turkey breast or rotisserie chicken breast. Sell by date is Feb 02, 2010.

If you don't usually stroll the cleaning aisle, it is worth a look with quite a few dollar items.

San Pablo

50 cents - Organic Stoneyfield pumpkin pie yogurt ... yum, yum, yum, yum, yum
50 cents - Microwave bowls Health Valley organic chili or split pea soup
50 cents - Wheat Thins artisan Vermont white cheddar crackers (good)
50 cents - Country Crock refrigerated mashed potatoes (loaded or garlic)
50 cents - Kraft-Liv cottage cheese with strawberries ... two compartments
50 cents - Jello pudding singles
99 cents - LU Herbes de Provence flatbread crackers
99 cents - Natural Path chocolate pop tarts
$1.00 - Hot Pockets calzone (aren't they all that?)
$1.49 - Santa Cruz organic peanut butter
$1.50 - Stouffer's 4 cheese mac, cheese and mushrooms
$1.99 - Horizon organic 2% lactose-free milk (1/2 gallon)

Seriously, the pumpkin yogurt is one of the best pumpkin things I've had this whole holiday season. The pumpkin flavor is pronounced and it is not overly sweet.

The LU crackers are pretty good if you like herbed crackers

I like the vanilla jello pudding better than the chocolate. I made a swell pudding last year using eggnog instead of milk.

I bought the peanut butter last month and it is good.

    1. The Oakland store had Mallomars for $2.29

      1. Not a food item, but in this cold spell. I purchase 3 Fruit of the Loom sweatshirts for 10 bucks. Nice for a cold night.

        1. Berkeley GO: I got the last bottle of Juslyn Cabernet 2003 for $30 - looks like prices online range from $60 to $80. Bernie (I think that's the name of the store manager), recommended it very highly, and I trust these guys' opinion about wine at this point. Haven't opened yet, reviews said cellar for a few more years.

          I got word that the Clos Du Val and other cabs that were around last year might be coming back "in a couple of months."

            I saw that cab at Oakland the other day and wondered about it.

              I don't know his name, but I've spoken with the manager in Berkeley and I agree, he seemed really quite knowledgeable ab. wines.

                The Clif Bar Family Winery red wine they have in stock called The Climber is an excellent value. I think it was $8 a bottle. Great Meritage blend of zin, cab and merlot, a very easy drinker. Pop it open an hour ahead of time, the air rounds out the wine nicely.

                2. San Pablo GO had a few pints of Ben & Jerry's Heath Bar Crunch for $1.49 - good deal but was the ingredient list always so long ?

                    It is the add-ins that causes the long B&J ingredient list ... not that the basic flavors are that pristine. So whatever it is in Heath bars gets added to the list.

                    Seriously, if you at all like pumpkin and yogurt pick up some of that pumpkin pie yogurt at San Pablo. Since it is organic the ingredient list is good-ish.
