Grocery Outlet - June 2012
Didn't see a thread for May and since it now June I thought I'd start a new one although I don't have much to add.
In Oakland today there's a nice Casalnovo Prosecco at $4/bottle. Nice buy for your summer bubbly needs. I bought a case.
An Italian organic linguine (can't recall the brand name, sorry) at $1.49. This is an excellent quality pasta and a super value at the price. They had other shapes a while back, penne, a tricolor, rigatoni, but these are long gone. Lots of linguine though.
Way cheap Absolut "New Orleans" vodka. Don't know what NOLA style vodka is but it's only $8 a bottle. Didn't bother myself.
Most GO's should have 14 mo old aged Jamonodor Serrano (80% as good as 24mo aged Parma prosciutto, IMHO) for $2.99 for 5oz packages. This is 25% off a serrano price, but most good parma is $24/lb so I'll say it's a great deal. Nice quality and pieces are thinly sliced and separated by parchment in the package. I have been making sandwiches with that, their $1.99 Sargento Mozzarella, Semifreddis Ciabbata rolls I get for 50 cents locally and basil or basil peso...killer. And all for $1.80 instead of $7 (at least!). Also: Columbus Calabrese salame, 5oz, $1.49 Berkeley. Nice pepper flare but it doesn't take away from the substantial flavor. $1.50 Athenos Black Olive hummus in Berkeley.
Last week I saw the Ninja blender and NInja master prep at the Petaluma store. At this point, I don't recall the price.
Oakland has had the Alouette creme fraiche for $1.49 (although it was 99 cents a couple of weeks ago) -- great with strawberries.
Today they had a good selection of Godiva, both bars and bags of wrapped caramels (three different kinds). The latter were $2.99; didn't see a price on the bars.
I've quickly become addicted to the Country Choice organic ginger lemon sandwich cookies -- $1.49.
