This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have a new sale starting today at our Boulder Sprouts stores, while Whole Foods continues to mess with my mind by publishing weekly sales that repeat some and introduce some new ones. Meanwhile, Vitamin Cottage's sale lasts through March 5th - look just below this post for that one. Here's what's looking good to me now.

In Sprouts' new sale through February 24th, value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts (thighs also) are just $1.77 a pound, boneless pork loin chops (roast or shoulder roast also) are great at $1.79 a pound, whole or split fresh chickens are $1.49 a pound (a little more for fully cut up), all chicken sausage (pork too) are $3.99 a pound, and boneless London broil is $3.99 a pound (not such a great cut on its own in my opinion, but maybe a good one to cut up for stew beef, which this week has a sale price of $4.99 a pound). Previously frozen 31/40 cound wild peeled and deveined shrimp are $5.99 a pound, and previously frozen wild Alaskan cod fillets are $7.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, Braeburn or red Delicious apples are great at 98 cents a pound, broccoli is $1.48 a pound, celery is $1.48 a bunch, some Earthbound Farm salads are BOGO, and blackberries are $2.98 for a 5.6 ounce container. In conventional produce, asparagus is notable at $1.98 a pound. Elsewhere in the store, there's a huge BOGO sale on hundreds of items. Catching my eye are my favorite Green Mountain Creamery Greek yogurts (most are just 110 calories and really good), 15 ounce cans of Westbrae organic beans, Blue Diamond Nut Thins, Late July organic tortilla chips, Back to Nature cookies or crackers, Earth Balance peanut butters, Home Run Inn pizzas, DeBoles pastas, and Rising Moon Organics pastas (all "select varieties"). My, my. Shop till you drop.

At Whole Foods through February 23rd, things are looking rather like I reported last week, with organic on-the-vine tomatoes $2.99 a pound and the like. Look a few posts below for that one, but it does drive me a bit crazy that some things do change. What pops out at me as new this week is Lundberg's wonderful rice and multigrain chips at $2.50 a bag, and I don't recall the $4.99 price on Metropolitan brie last week for an eight ounce wheel.
