Pretzel M & M's
Oreo brownies or fudge cream cookies 50 cents
Sorry if this is redundant. Nothing turned up in search
I noted several varieties of soy ice creams. I am trying to cut down on sugar, but it's good to know nevertheless.
I bought Yves meatless meatballs for a dollar. Score!
Also, the cheapie fan-style watering hose ends that I love for $1.99. For some reason, Home Depot doesn't carry them anymore. That said, the ones I bought at GO weren't as good as the old Home Depot ones (Gilmour was the manufacturer of the ones I used to love).
I was in the Southern California stores but I'm sure you guys have better selection.
Got these from the Fremont store.
bellafoglia supreme pizza 3.99
Kashi mushroom/spinach 3 pizza pack 7.99
Humboldt creamery organic mint chip ice cream 1.99
Party peanuts 2.99
bamboo gadget set 3.99
lodge pitcher 3.99
The pitcher will be good for iced tea etc.
There were many gelato flavors like mango,coconut, wild-berry. Have tried the mango and its good.
There were new soup flavors from Pacific, carrot-almond, mushroom and tomato-herb.
The San Pablo store has near pints of Cyclops frozen yogurt for $1.99. It's from New Zealand ... which should have been a warning bell ... yogurt shipped that far.
It looks like it was soft serve that was piped into the container with lots of air space so it had that fuzzy skin quality that ice cream gets if it is left in the freezer uncovered. That was annoying too ... it looked like a pint, but it was 1/3 empty.
It just did not taste fresh. Which is too bad because it probably was good when fresh, it is a very tangy yogurt. That beig said, the strawberry didn't have much strawberry flavor. Skip it.
Have had that problem before with ice cream at GO -- it varies from container to container: some will be fine and others will have melted and re-frozen. I always press the side of the carton near the top to see if it feels firm.
Sunday morning at Oakland GO:
$2.99 Maranantha Cashew (and Almond) butter
$2.49 Smuckers Organic peanutbutter
$.99 De Boles Jerusalem artichoke linguini (I've had this before and liked it)
$.99 McVittie's digestive biscuit (exp date in May but probably will be good for a while longer)
$1.99 Newman's Own Pasta sauce, two flavors
$1.49 -- Italian brand of tomato basil sauce in tetrapak cartons
$1.99 -- half gallon unsweetened vanilla almond milk
They also had half gallons of Horizon organic fat free milk -- don't remember the price
