Grocery Outlet June 2013
If there's a thread already, I couldn't find it.
Most intriguing/best value:
$3.99 Niman Ranch "heat and eat" entrees, 15 oz. two flavors of meatloaf and pot roast in pomadoro sauce. Keep refrigerated, but use by date of July 13 (http://www.freshideasgroup.com/news_r...)
Also, Grocery Outlet usually has a good price on Foster Farms whole chickens ($1.19/lb), and today was their "use or freeze" by date, so they were an additional $2 each off.
In the candy aisle or at the checkstands, half a dozen different Ritter sport bars (including marzipan and milk chocolate with hazelnuts), $1.49.
$1.99 Ben and Jerry's chocolate ice cream. Also various flavors of Wonka, Starbucks, etc. ice creams.
$7.49/lb (pre-weighed pieces, most slightly over $4) Honey Bee goat gouda from Holland ($22/lb on igourmet) I didn't buy any because I splurged on cheese last Tuesday!
$1.49/16 oz. Organic spaghetti "from Tuscany"
Oh, and I didn't realize until after I'd paid that she'd given me the "2nd and 4th Tuesday morning" 10 percent senior discount (which I don't quite qualify for).

Thanks for the link about the Nina tomatoes: I was wondering if they were worth buying but didn't take the plunge... hopefully they'll still be there when I go back.
I did pick up a jar of clotted cream for $1.99 (in Richmond) and it was pretty fantastic slathered on scones. They said the regular price was $7.99, can that really be possible?
Monterey Blvd, San Jose: Nina crushed tomatoes in tomato puree in stock, 28 oz for 99 cents. Whole seeded watermelons (big ones), $4.99 each. Van Camp's brand canned crab meat in the refrigerator case, $8.99 per 1 lb can (they also have canned crab claw meat for less in the non-refrigerated section). Along with the 2/$1 Haas avocadoes, this is going into California rolls for dinner. Capra brand herb and garlic goat cheese, $2.49 for a 10.5 oz shrink-wrapped log. In the freezer case: Shrink-wrapped frozen wild-caught pink salmon, $2.99 per 12 ounce filet. Wild caught yellowfin tuna, 1 lb shrink-wrapped packages, $7.99 each (4-5 chunks per packet, might be good for kebabs).
