Grocery Outlet March, 2012

Oakland Grocery Outlet two days ago:

- $3.99 Chalk Hill Estate Bottled Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma 2006. Haven't tried it yet but some nice reviews on the web. ABV 14.4%, grown, produced and bottled by Chalk Hill, Healdsburg.

- $5.99 Michel-Schlumberger Red Wine Sonoma 2007. Estate grown and bottled in Healdsburg, high ABV of 15.4%, has a spicy bite of black cherry and cinnamon or clove.


- $4.00 for case of 12-16 oz. bottles. Bob Marley's Mellow Mood Lite, half lemonade/half tea with chamomile, lemon balm, valerian root, hops, passion flower, melatonin, 10% fruit juice. Only 40 calories per 8 oz. Very soooothing and great price (about 33 cents/bottle) probably because it has a best buy date of 3/2012.


- $1.29 Old Orchard frozen Cranberry Pomegranate Juice concentrate with apple, aronia, grape juices, 12 oz. Other flavors available. 100% juice with no added sugar. When I see frozen 100% juice concentrates, I always grab a bunch at these prices.


- $2.99 for 11 oz. Lou's Famous Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Skinless Chicken Sausages (4). Chicken raised without the use of antibiotics, fed natural grains and no artificial ingredients or nitrates/nitrates used. From Lou's Naturals of Woodstown, NJ. The sausages don't have a pork or other type of casing so they don't have the "snap" that others might but I prefer the skinless.



- $2.99 Mt. Olive Dills, 80 oz. glass jar.
- $1.99 Häagen-Dazs Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream, 14 oz.
- $6.99 Authentic Gourmet Frozen Raspberry Cake, 21.9 oz.




- $5.99 for two jars of 26 oz. Smucker's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. Works out to about $1.84/lb for a quality peanut butter with only salt added. Best used by date of 3/27/12.
- $1.29 Coconut Dream Orignal drink, 32 oz. tetra pak. Made with real coconut and has 3 grams of medium chain fatty acids per 8 oz. serving which it claims are more easily metabolized than some other fatty acids. It makes an excellent creamer for coffee and also comes in vanilla flavor. Distributed by Hain Celestial.

      Stopped by the Oakland GO and there wasn't anything noteworthy.

        Michel-Schlumberger Syrah is good, apparently, as is the '06 Chalk Hill Sauv Blanc. I grabbed the last of the '08 M-S La Cime Cabernet Sauvigon which should be outstanding.

      Berkeley, Wednesday 3/7: Strauss Organic European Style butter, lightly salted, $2.49 for a pound. Can't say it tastes much different than my regular butter, but that's a good price for organic. Sell by date of 6/30/12.

          Just checked on the new South San Francisco Grocery Outlet. They have a phone number now so I called and they said they will be opening Saturday, March 24th.

              At Oakland on the weekend : Boulder olive oil potato chips - I really liked these. Picked up the Michel-Schlumberger Red recommended here but have not tried it yet. Oakland had my treasured Hellman's Mayo but in giant vats - it looked like catering size to me - wouldn't even fit in our fridge. I love it but I can't eat that much.

                I forgot: for those who like them the Oakland GO had Cadbury Creme Eggs for ... I think it was 3/$1.

                  Berkeley: Charles Renoir 2009 Beaujolais Villages, $4.99. Delightful, wish I'd stocked up during the sale, but still a great value.

                    I am no wine expert, I don't even drink that often.
                    But since we drink occasionally, I bought few wines at the sale, just by reading the labels, lol.
                    And I bought more whites than reds. This was at Fremont

                    I tasted one of the whites I bought and really like it.
                    It just suits my palate, light , smooth and easy.
                    It is Marques de Aldaz, viura.

                    I think I am going back to get some more of it.
