This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, and this week it looks like a truly new sale at Whole Foods (they've been confounding me recently by issuing new flyers every week, but sometimes listing repeats). Vitamin Cottage reportedly is on a Hotline hiatus until February 1st, not far away. Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through February 3rd, value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts are just $1.69 a pound, boneless beef sirloin tip roasts or steaks are $2.99 a pound (I'd just cut that up for a stir fry - much cheaper than buying stew beef), boneless country style pork ribs or shoulder roast are great at $1.99 a pound, whole or split chickens are $1.69 a pound, and their very good stuffed chicken breasts are $2.99 a pound. In fish, I don't know about these two specials, but previously frozen wild snapper fillets are $7.99 a pound, and Orca Bay frozen seafood is all BOGO, and I'm not a fan of the other fish specials.

In organic produce at Sprouts, vine ripe tomatoes are great at $1.88 a pound, 5.6 ounce blackberries are $2.98 a box, and four pound bags of Valencia oranges or grapefruit are just $2.98 each. I sometimes stray into conventional for winter squash, where acorn, butternut and spaghetti squash are all just 48 cents a pound this week (same also for broccoli crowns or cauliflower). Elsewhere in the store, I'm liking some organic Wolfgang Puck soups at $1.50 a can, and the big 100-ish ounce Seventh Generation laundry detergents very low at $9.99 each. Plus, there are a couple of  25% off sales, on omega vitamins and supplements, and also on bulk trail mix.

In Whole Food's new sale, flyer listing through February 2nd (although some will likely repeat past that), my avocado-loving friends (so glad you're still reading, Ms. A.!) might like to look at the Hass avocados at $1 each, as they tend to be larger than those found elsewhere, although $1 isn't a great price. My favorite WFM seeduction hearth bread is $4.49 a loaf, five ounce Wellshire Farms sliced pepperoni is $3.99 a package, some Goodbelly juices are $2.50 for a whole quart, some Evol burritos are great at $2 each, and Chocolove is also $2 for the big 3.2 ounce chocolate bar. For those of us taking calcium, I'm intrigued by Adora chocolate calcium disks, but at $7.99 for a 30-count bag, that's a tad pricey, but then you're getting your chocolate fix simultaneously.
