This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

We have new sales starting today at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores. There also should be something new at Vitamin Cottage, as their long-lasting sale just ended, must check that out. Here's what's looking good to me now.

First, Sprouts will be doing another 72-hour sale this weekend, Friday through Sunday. Catching my eye are value packs of boneless skinless chicken breasts for $1.59 a pound, asparagus 98 cents a pound (although I haven't been thrilled with what they've been carrying so far this year), previously frozen 31/40 count wild Gulf shrimp $5.99 a pound, some of my favorite Blue Diamond Nut Thins the lowest I've ever seen at 99 cents a box, and a bunch of hair care 25% off.

In Sprouts' regular sale today through the 13th, I'm liking their own very good stuffed chicken breasts at $2.99 a pound, and they have a new applewood smoked bacon product that intrigues me because it says it's uncured, with no added nitrites or nitrates, and is only $4.99 a one pound package. Also, 93% lean ground sirloin looks good at $4.99 a pound, but otherwise, nothing in meat or fish is calling to me this week. Their pricing farmed salmon and wild halibut by the six ounce portion does not a deal make if you do the math.

Elsewhere in the store at Sprouts, the big Organic Sale continues, with some prices even better than last week's already good ones. I'm particularly liking on-the-vine organic tomatoes for just 98 cents a pound, and one pound of strawberries or six-ish ounc blackberries $2.98 a container (although you can catch the strawberries through today for $2.50). I'm also liking bulk organic coffee at $6.99 a pound, a dollar lower than last week, and I buy it weekly anyway, all Nature's Path products continue at 40% off, Late July chips are $1.50 a six-ish ounce bag, some DeLallo whole wheat pastas are $1.50 a one pound package, and Sprouts own beans are 99 cents a 15-ish ounce can, all of the above products and produce being organic.

At Whole Foods through the 12th, much looks to be a continuation of last week's sale despite the new dates. I'm liking organic Bartlett pears at $1.69 a pound, 26-30 count raw shrimp already peeled and deveined for $9.99 a pound (but remember Sprouts' weekend sale on shrimp too), ground turkey with a fine pedigree at $3.99 a pound, Barbara's Puffins cereals $3 a box, several 365 frozen entrees (including a vegan pizza) at $2.50 each, and I wonder how good Jasper Hill Cloth Bound cheddar must be at $19.99 a pound, because that's $10 off. Also, for your spring cleaning, all 365 Everyday Value cleaning products are 25% off.
