This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

On this chilly, snowy (so we got just shy of 17 inches yesterday) morning, we have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores. Whole Foods is also posting a new one week flyer, but as I've mentioned before, they seem to keep their two or three week sale pattern, but with a few tweaks (big one to be mentioned below). Vitamin Cottage should have just ended their Hotline hiatus, so I must get there to check it out. Here's what's looking good to me now.

In Sprouts' new sale through February 10th, the emphasis is not unsurprisingly on items that would be suitable for a Super Bowl party. Baby back pork ribs are $2.79 a pound, chicken breast tenders (thighs also) are $1.77 a pound, all chicken sausage (pork also) is $3.99 a pound, fresh ground chicken or chicken breast are both $2.99 a pound, and pork spare ribs or boneless country style ribs are just $1.99 a pound. In fish, I'm liking previously frozen stuffed clams, scallop or crab at $1 each (they make for the easiest appetizers ever, just popped into the oven), and previously frozen wild Alaskan sockeye fillets are $6.99 a pound (although even frozen starts to get old to me at this time of year).

In organic produce at Sprouts, broccoli is fabulous at 98 cents a pound, red, yellow or orange bell peppers are $1.50 each, and navel oranges are 98 cents a pound. For your guacamole, you can get conventional Hass avocados at 48 cents each, or 98 cents for organic. Elsewhere in the store, I'm absolutely thrilled to see Home Run Inn frozen pizzas practically given away at $4.99 each (these are my new faves, so I hesitate to even mention such a good deal. They are also sold at Whole Foods, and the usual going price is $8.99 or higher everywhere. Plus, they're really good.) Cliff, Luna or Mojo bars are very low at 88 cents each (10% lower if by the case), Frontera salsa is $3 a 16 ounce jar, some Barbara's cereals, granola or snacks are 35% off, Back to Nature crackers are $2.50 a box, and all Annie Chun's Asian cuisine is 35% off (time to stock up on noodles and the like). For Super Bowl snacking, there are several BOGO offers: Starlite Cuisine taquitos or rolled tacos, Earthbound Farm organic roasted potatoes, Annie's Homegrown appetizers, and Evol street tacos (all "select varieties"). A bunch of Sprouts' own snacks are $1.50 a bag, and some Bulk Foods packaged snacks are $25 off. Happy snacking.

Whole Foods' new weekly flyer through February 9th looks to me as being largely the same as the one I reported on last week (look a few posts below for that). There are a few differences, the huge one to me being their own fully cooked chicken wings for $3.99 a pound, basically half price for them. I'm usually on the lookout for their chicken wing bucket sale for my one-time indulgence at this time of year, but who needs a bucket when you can get exactly the amount you want at that price?
