Grocery Outlet, January 2013

Happy New Year everyone! I am an avid GO shopper @ GO, Redwood City and this is my first post . Here is my list of finds this week :

(A) immaculate baking chocolate rolls - $1.49 ( there were also pie crusts for $1.49)
(B) Different flavors of Oikos ( Lemon, Superfruit, Honey and Pineapple) - 3/$1.00
(C) Eat, Think, Smile - Raspberry Thins - $1.99
(D) SO Almond Milk - $1.29 (check dates before buying, they have some expiring Jan 19th and some in November)
(E) Autre Pinot Noir - I didn't try it but my husband really liked it @ $3.99
(F) St. Chapelle Reisling (Late Harvest) - if you like dessert wines you are in luck...this one is AMAZING @ $2.99 a steal
(G) Jamba Juice Yogurt Bars - $1.99 ( I got the coconut pineapple something, only 90 calories and good)
(H) Helios Tomato Sauce -- I forget the price I think it was either $1.49 or $1.99

(J) Burt Bees Lip Balm with Eucalyptus - $1.29

I don't see much activity around GO postings so I am hoping Ruth, Melanie and the others start posting soon :)

    1. Berkeley:

      Spanish 2009 tempranillo/grenache blend, "Tempra Tantrum", Good varietal character on both sides. Also a pure tempranillo which I haven't tried. $3.99 each

      Argentine NV "Old Winery Red", some kind of blend, maybe also tempranillo, not as complex as the Tempra Tantrum but an acceptable table wine at $2.99.

      1. On Broadway in Oakland:

        Carmagnola marinara sauce imported from Italy. No added sugar (a requirement for me). $2.99 for a 24 oz. jar. I can't make mine for this price.

        1. re: GH1618

          I bought a bottle of the Carmagnola marinara sauce in the SSF store. Never had it before but will give it a try since I don't like Ragu or Prego. GO usually doesn't carry imported Italian marinara sauce.

        2. Anyone try the Helios Tortillas Espanola filling (potatoes and onion in a jar)?

          1. Poore Brothers original potato chips, 16 oz, $2.99 - like these kettle chips a lot, not as hard as other brands, deep potato flavor, less salty. For price comparison, Lays at GO is $3.99 for 14.5 oz.

            Naked coconut water, 11.2 oz, 69¢, best by date Feb 8 '13, no additives, pasteurized, tetra pack

            Numi organic pu-erh tea (Earl Grey or Mango/Passionfruit) bottles, 12 oz, 99¢

            Illy issimo caffe, no sugar, 6.8 oz can, 100% arabica, (ingredients: coffee, potassium bicarbonate, potassium citrate), 99¢

            1. Fairfield GO: the brown Jumbo Nulaid eggs were so huge they had 2 yolks each. This might mess you up if you had a recipe to follow, but all I wanted was an omelet. This was the biggest, high-cholesterol omelet I've had in a long time!

              Also check out the 2 gallon Ziplock bags marketed as outdoor sportsman's bags. If you want to transport wines in your luggage and don't want spills to mess up your clothes, this is a good deal. Pack each bottle separately.
