Grocery Outlet August, 2014

Stocked up on some pantry items:
33 cents/box of six, Swiss Miss dark chocolate hot chocolate mix (in the "last chance" shelves in the far corner near the bread)
$1.49 Knorr stock concentrate (both beef and chicken)
50 cents, cantaloupe
$2.50 Taylor salad "kits" (regularly $2.99 at GO) -- I'm lazy about making salad, so these are handy -- be sure to check the dates, since they can vary as much as a week on the same shelf
99 cents/12 oz Ekert "Angus beef smoked sausage" (use by was yesterday)
Still lots of Chuao bars @ $2.99: Panko, Anise, Maya, Firecracker and Honeycomb
If Grocery Outlet is sold WinCo is an alternative. Unfortunately the closest one is in Pittsburgh CA.
They also pay and treat their employees well like CostCo does.

This thread is technically obsolete, but I bought it in August, so...
If there are any other backpackers here, GO on Geary had Libby's spiced ground beef (think "taco filling") in foil pouches for something like a dollar apiece. This is a product perfect for backpacking (I'm not sure I'd buy it otherwise). I combined it with (instant) mashed potatoes and (freeze-dried) corn, and it was a big hit. Or you could combine it with some tube tomato paste and freeze-dried black beans to make a pretty decent backpacker chili.
