This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

Back to a more normal Wednesday after last week's holiday rush and sale hiatus, we have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current one continues at Vitamin Cottage through December 12th (use the list of posts at the lower left to find that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

Sprouts' new sale lasts through December 9th, and it's interesting that after their taking last week off from new sales, this week their flyer is only two pages instead of four, so half as many items to peruse. In any case, I'm liking value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts (thighs also) for just #1.77 a pound, if I'm ready for more poultry, all chicken sausage $3.99 a pound, and their very good stuffed chicken breasts $2.99 a pound (guess I'd better be ready for chicken). In fish, previously frozen wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fillets are $9.99 a pound, and previously frozen 31/40 count peeled and deveined wild shrimp are $6.99 a pound (not very big, but all the work is done for you).

Not much to report regarding organic produce at Sprouts, as the only item listed in this abreviated flyer is organic mini seedless watermelon at $2.50 each. If you're willing to go conventional, five pound boxes of Cuties mandarins are $3.88 each. Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking some Earth Balance buttery spreads (sticks also) at just $2.99 each (timely, as Thanksgiving nearly wiped out my supply), 40% off the entire line of very good Back to Nature products, Organic Vally salted or unsalted butter $3.99 a one pound package, Tillamook Greek yogurts 77 cents each, some Delallo pastas $1.50 a one pound package, and to go with it, Rao's pasta sauce $4.99 a jar.

In the new sale at Whole Foods through December 15th, I'm liking organic Pink Lady apples at just $1.68 a pound, domestic sockeye salmon fillet $12.99 a pound (although you'll find that cheaper at Sprouts this week, but Whole Foods always has such glorious fish), 12 ounce Isigny St. Mere brie for $5.99 each, my favorite Imagine organic broths $2.50 a box, and their own organic cranberry baguettes sound intriguing at $2.49 each (just how would you enjoy a cranberry baguette?).
