This Week's Hot New Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have a new sale starting today at our combined Boulder Sprouts and Sunflower, while the current one continues at Whole Foods (click for prior report).  Here's what's looking good to me in the new sale.

As reported last week, Sprouts and Sunflower now share one set of weekly specials as they continue their merger, the current one lasting through August 29th (eek, almost Labor Day!).  I'm liking a fish-centric Wild Caught Seafood Spectacular, with several types of fish all $7.99 a pound.  The fresh ones are coho salmon fillets and albacore tuna steaks, while previously frozen options include swordfish, cod, and very big 16/20 count shrimp.  Boneless skinless chicken breasts in the value pack and center-cut pork loin chops are both $2.99 a pound, not the lowest price ever, but Sprouts' own stuffed chicken breasts are good at that same $2.99 a pound.  Whole or cut-up chickens are $1.49 a pound, and country style pork ribs are $2.49 a pound.

In organic produce through the 29th, Sprouts and Sunflower have broccoli for $1.29 a pound, baby carrots $1.25 for a one pound bag, red or green seedless grapes for a particularly good $1.50 a pound, leaf or romaine lettuce just 99 cents a head, russet potatoes $3.99 for a five pound bag, grape tomatoes $1.99 a pint, plums just 99 cents a pound, cantaloupe 69 cents a pound, and here comes that butternut squash, very good at 99 cents a pound, but I refuse to go there in the midst of our summer produce bonanza.

Elsewhere in the stores, I'm enthused about bulk coffee at $7.99 a pound.  I've always liked Sprouts for carrying a Fair Trade organic decaf, which is a steal at this price, and I haven't noticed that Sunflower has adopted that product yet in the merger.  Chobani Greek yogurts are $1 each, some Evol burritos are $2 each, and select half gallons of Horizon Organic milk are very low at $2.99 each, although Whole Foods' everyday price on its own line of organic milk is even lower than that.
