What to buy at Wegmans

Any particularly good kosher finds in Wegmans? I'm going to one this week and want to know if there is anything I should be on the lookout for. Maybe something from their own brand?

      We buy the horseradish mustard, Dijon mustard, whole grain mustard, spicy deli.

      Their beans are OU and well priced. As are the tomato sauce, purée, crushed, diced, paste... All well priced and very good.
      Pastas also- especially the "fancy" ones in cellophane bags.

      My husband likes their store brand BBQ sauce, ketchup, banana peppers, black olives, pickles.

      They have kosher "Asian" sauces- the peanut and stir fry sauces are very good.

      Frozen vegetables- 99 cents for 16oz packages, certified with triangle K. Corn, spinach, peas, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower. (I've been known to buy 30 bags at a time)

      Oh and husband likes their pints of ice cream and sorbet.

      Completely random...but they have some of the best prices on loose fancy mushrooms

    2. Thanks to a link you posted on another Kosher thread I learned that Green's Home Style babkas are sold at Wegmans!

      I plan to pick some up when in Buffalo next month.

      To those that might not know, these are the delicious babkas sold at Katz's Delicatessen and Russ & Daughters in NYC, among other places of note.

      They're very good!

          Sorry MartyB, I don't keep kosher - plus I don't understand what you're asking :)

      2. They have lots of their own brand salad dressing, sauces etc with hekshers, some in flavors you cant find elsewhere. Also, their own brand Mango soda (OU) is really good, and I have never seen similar elsewhere.

          Mango soda! That sounds really cool.

        2. It's been a while (like, over a year) since I went down the baking aisle, but their brand of chocolate chips was pareve back then. It would be worth checking to see if they still are, because as I recall, the chips were also reasonably priced (and are likely on sale right now because of holiday baking).

            Yep, I buy their choc chips too.

            They also have very good prices on store brand flour, ww flour, sugar, brown sugar, shredded coconut, raisins.....

          2. Their bbq sauces are really good. We love the kansas city and Memphis.

            1. their Wegman's brand fruit jam (called triple fruit) is really good--not too sweet mostly berries. Also, Wegman's brand soda -the diet green/grapefruit one is just like Fresca. I love wegmans!

                I like the berry blend triple fruit- the low sugar version

              2. I dont know which Wegmans you go to, but if at all convenient, try Shoprite in Bound Brook.

                Great Hosher department: store made entrees, fresh meat, BBQ, etc...and a huge (for Jersey) frozen aisle.

                Just dont go on Shabat, the (fersh) area is closed.

                1. Wegmans is just a great grocery with really good prices on some of their brand stuff (like flour and sugar as someone mentioned) but it you're looking for something that you can't really find elsewhere...one thing that I love is their chocolate covered Virginia peanuts...its a seasonal product so they don't always have it, but they usually get it around this time...its awesome
