This Week's Hot Grocery Deals (IMHO)

My, what a strange week for me, but let's get on with the new sales starting at our Boulder Sprouts and Whole Foods stores, while the current sale at Vitamin Cottage continues into May (look a few posts down for that one). Here's what's looking good to me now.

At Sprouts through April 27th, the big news is that the Vitamin & Body Care Extravaganza returns, with everything in that department 25% off. Time to get those products you know don't otherwise go on sale. Back to the regulars, in meat and fish, I'm liking value packs of fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts for just $1.69 a pound (and with those available, I'm perplexed by the tenders I like much less also on sale for $2.99 a pound), all chicken sausage $3.49 a pound, stuffed chicken breasts $2.99 a pound, ground pork $2.99 a pound (so good in Asian dishes), boneless beef ribeyes $12.99 a pound, and London broil $3.99 a pound. In fish, fresh farmed tilapia is $6.99 a pound, and ez peel very big 13/15 count raw shrimp $6.99 a pound.

In organic produce at Sprouts, green curly kale or red bunched beets are fantastic at 88 cents each, and Cameo apples are $1.88 a pound. (Plus mangos are on sale as they are everywhere else - why don't I care for mangos?) For those willing to eat conventional sweet corn, myself included, corn fiend that I am, it's starting to arrive at just 25 cents an ear. Elsewhere in the store, my favorite Blue Diamond Nut Thins are just $1.50 a box, Terra veggie chips are $2 a bag, local Noosa yoghurts are very low at $1.50 each, Home Run Inn's frozen pizzas (very good in a pinch) are $6.99 each, although we've seen those even lower, and all Back to Nature products are 40% off.

At Whole Foods through the 26th, many look like repeats from last week, so look several posts below for those if still going this week. The standouts to me are tequila lime salmon burgers $9.99 a pound, prepared buttermilk fried chicken dangerously tempting at $6.99 a pound, 365 organic chicken 20% off, four ounces of Changing Seas smoked salmon $4.99 each, various Passover offerings 50% off, Brown Cow's very good Greek yogurts just $1 each, Late July's Clasico tortilla chips $2 for a 5.5 ounce bag, and the bakery's lovely baby boule breads $1.59 each (although they're wonderful any day for hardly any more).
