  1. The Pacific is actually chocolate-flavored hazelnut milk (not soymilk). I thought it was pretty good. I figured the coconut M&Ms would show up sooner or later -- I'll keep an eye out for them.

    1. re: Ruth Lafler

      Oakland had the large bags of the coconut M&Ms for $1.99 this week. Also, lots of Pacific almond milk and another brand of organic soy milks (both unflavored and vanilla).

      The big discovery yesterday (Sunday, 2/21) was five-pound bags of frozen organic French green beans for $4.99. Each bag has five one-pound bags inside.

      Otherwise, I thought pickings were slim.

      1. re: Ruth Lafler

        I bought those green beans the other day. It wasn't until I got home that I saw that they were made in China. I am weary of organics from China.

        1. re: orangeworld

          Just the organics ? I almost never buy the frozen fish at GO because almost all of it's from China.

        2. re: Ruth Lafler

          Oh, I forgot: Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk for 99 cents a can. I was out, so I restocked.

      2. Santa Rosa today -
        Didn't see most of the items listed by OP. A couple of Bossa Nova juices in cooler & a different acai juice.

        The big deal is lots of Spectrum products in cooler & on shelves - mayo, flax oil (5-6 choices), salad dressing 4-5 choices) and a few odds n ends. Prices a fraction of retail.

        Frozen organic food - Amy's, but not Cedarlane today.

        No worthwhile soup, crackers, cheese or cookies. Not sure why. Winter is the season, but the stock isn't there.

          There was Cedarlane frozen food at the Berkeley store yesterday. I didn't buy any, since it seems expensive for what it is.

          My SO really likes the Marmor marble cake from Germany, but it's a bit junky.

        2. Pietro Coricelli extra virgin olive oil, $7.99/liter - labeled as sourced from Tunisia, nice buttery ripeness but with some peppery bite still
          http://www.coricelli.com/en_storia.htm

          1. 50 cents - Shop and Save sugar wafer cookies 8 oz
            99 cents - Organic bbq chipotle Kettle potato chips
            2.49 - Blue Diamond almond butter (creamy or w/honey) 12 oz

            The Kettle chips are this week's special and they are really good. I don't think they really have either a bbq or chipotle flavor, but there's an excellent garlic flavor and a pleasant, but mild spiciness.

            The sugar wafers do have sugar and not HFCS.

            The creamy almond butter just had almonds and sea salt so I bought that. The honey had one questionable ingredient. I can't remember the last time, if ever, I bought almond butter, so I'm no expert. However, this stuff seems flavorless to me. It is just .... thick. It is the first thing I may actually return to GO. Again, maybe almond butter is supposed to taste this bland

            1. re: rworange

              Also on chips at Berkeley, Alexia Waffle Fries 5oz, 99 cents. Thick, spicy waffle puffs with a good heat.

              1. re: wolfe

                I tried the Waffle Fries in "Bold & Spicy BBQ" flavor and found them to be near-tasteless. They do have a very good crunch and look nice. :) Perhaps you tried the "Hot" variety or just got a better batch than I.

            2. At the Berkeley store, Mosaic Whole Fruit Fusion Olive Oil (Lemon, Blood Orange or Lime) cold pressed. 12.5 fl oz. 5.99$. Nice drizzled over a plate of greens, grilled chicken or fish.

              St. Clemens Danablu blue cheese, 4.4 oz. 2.49$, packaged in a wedge shape. Also have Rosenborg Castello Noble Blue, 6.25 oz, 1.99$, in a box, shaped like a cube of butter.

              Also saw King's Kimchi (no MSG, no preservatives), 14 oz. for 0.99$. Mild only.
