Looks like no one's started a June thread yet.

-Pacific organic chicken broth, 4-pack of 8oz ea, $1.49. This is a great value as this is usually close to $5 at my local market.

-Stretch Island Fruit Chews (no added sugar fruit snack) $1.99
-479 degrees popcorn, caramel, ginger, sesame seed flavor $1.49 (also saw the black truffle flavor)

  1. Thanks, I'll have to keep an eye out.

    1. I bought the 479 black truffle popcorn ... good flavor but popcorn was soggy.

        Bummer! I just tried the caramel flavor I bought today and it was great. Popcorn was crunchy, and the caramel was good without being overly sweet. Ginger was not too overpowering. I couldn't taste the sesame seeds at all.

      2. The 4-pack of Pacific organic chicken broth was at the Redwood City store yesterday.

        Also sighted was the salted Anchor butter from New Zealand. I think it was $1.49 or $1.99.

        1. The extra aged gouda that tm posted last month is back at the Berkeley store:

          "tm... May 22, 2014 11:03 PM

          Picked up a few things at the Berkeley store today:

          Uniekaas Hollandse chevre "extra aged" $6.99/lb--I'll be back tomorrow to pick up more of this. I think I've had their "goat gouda" before and thought okay. This version, which had an "extra aged" sticker over the regular label had crystalline inclusions and a nice, nutty flavor. "

          This was missing from the Santa Rosa, Petaluma and Vallejo stores. Get it while it lasts!

            This cheese was available in Palo Alto as of Tuesday 6/17 (special fridge case in the wine area), and I think I also saw it in Milpitas last week (regular cheese area).

            1. re: sweethooch

              there is a special fridge case? I never go into the wine section, but LOVE having the new grocery outlet here.

              Probably gone, but Monday got:

              Hebrew National all beef hot dogs for 99 cents for kids.
              Hillshire farms turkey - not great stuff, but for $3 for 3 packs - it was worth it.
              Nature's Path gluten free cereals 2.50/bx- cinnamon and another. We haven't tried yet, but related to the maple sunrise which is decent stuff.
              Sam's mill gluten free bars - great for biking. 1.29 per box.
              We quickly depleted the saurkraut from Germany. Nothing but cabbage and salt in the ingredients. Doesn't replace my favorite local stuff, but pretty good.
              Jamba juice bars, coconut passion fruit - not bad. $1.50 per box of 6.
              Sunspire vegan natural peanut butter chips were not good.

              Didn't buy but have been sorely tempted - large box (15 I think) salted caramel haagan daaz ice cream bars for $8.

            2. re: NapaSpy

              Lots and lots of "extra aged" in Petaluma today.

            3. Berkeleyside.com links to a report that GO is looking for a buyer.


              1. I didn't see any of the popcorn at Oakland tonight.

                $1.99 Espresso Bar Bakery cookies in 12 oz tubs. The triple ginger doesn't have any ingredients I don't have in my kitchen, and they're really delicious.

                $2.49 Bon Mondo pasta all uovo (product of Germany), 350 grams (a little over 12 oz) in three flavors: spinach, wild garlic and porcini mushroom

                $9.99/liter Chosen blend oil a blend of safflower, avocado and coconut oils. Didn't buy, but looked interesting: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releas...

                1. yesterday at Concord:
                  Societe Roquefort 3.5 oz $3.49
                  Chosen Foods Avocado oil 1 L 13.99

                  1. re: mmag

                    Not sure that's a deal on Roquefort ($16/lb). Doesn't Trader Joe's have the same brand for $10/lb or so?

                    1. re: mmag

                      President Camembert 4.4 oz $1.49
                      Pillsbury Gluten Free Dough for pie and pastry 15.8 oz $0.99

                    2. If you're planning a visit to the Santa Rosa store - they have or are still are in the process of moving sections around. Allow extra time to check it out.

                      The "natural foods" section has more than doubled in size and is along the back wall and free standing shelf.

                      Seems to be a lot of gluten-free products - flours, mixes, chips, crackers, cookies and other processed foods. Also, they have baby products and cooking ingredients, not just processed foods.

                      Will be interesting to see how they keep it stocked in future.

                      The 479 popcorn came and went a few months ago at $1.49. Not soggy or stale.

                      Agree with everyone about the goat gouda. It's been coming and going from SR store for weeks and is great with crackers, fruit, cooked food, eating straight from the hand.

                        In Santa Rosa today - even more gluten free products - treasure hunt in nearly every aisle.

                        Maranatha cashew butter for $5.99.

                        And last of the 479 ginger popcorn in natural foods section.

                      2. Ixnay on the eesechay (extra-aged goat gouda) at Geary this morning. Alas. (Incidentally, this is the perfect backpacking cheese: flavorful and durable. I expect it would be fine for trips as long as a week or more.)

                        Mary Kitchen Corned Beef Hash, $1.99/can--not quite as good a price as the 6-packs at Costco, but about a dollar less than Safeway. (Canned corned beef hash is a weakness of mine, although unlike gin it isn't my *only* weakness.)

                        Progresso soups, $0.99/can.

                          At Sonora, CA: did have the extra aged goat gouda, and purchased but haven't tried: Vincent Aged Dutch Gouda (best by 6/27/14) and Don Bernardo Manchego (by 9/19/14). Bought & tried: Kashi Hummus Crisps Sea Salt & Vinegar- pretty good but not as crunchy as the TJ Lentil chips I love.

                        2. Oakland Sunday:

                          $1.49 Columbo corned beef (7 oz package) and Genoa salami.
                          $1.99 Dole organic bananas (2.5 pound bag)
                          $1.99 Ciao Bella Gelato (roasted hazelnut, malted milk and coconut sorbet)

                          1. 6/24 - Sunnyvale

                            Président sea salt butter 250 grams $1.99
