One of the first places I like to go when I’m home in Pennsylvania is our local discount grocery store. I always get phenomenal deals on healthy hidden gems!
There’s plenty of non-healthy items too, which sometimes make their way into my cart as well. What can I say?
Many of the items are so cheap because they are near their expiration date. Some are actually past their ‘best by’ date. But I’m always shocked at the amazing deals I can get. The dates don’t usually bother me.
Here’s a recap of some of this week’s finds. You have to see it to believe it!
MaraNatha Creamy Almond Butter, $3.99. Typically $6-8.
Squarebar organic vegan protein bar, $0.99. Typically $2.50.
Wild Friends organic chocolate sunflower butter, $3.99. Typically, $8-9.
Purely Elizabeth blueberry hemp granola, $1.79. Typically, $6.99.
Puffins peanut butter and chocolate cereal (like adult Reese’s Puffs!) for $1.29. Typically $3-4.
And perhaps the biggest surprise of all…
Freaking Oatmega Bars!! This is the company I work part-time for in Austin. I could NOT believe I found them up north in Pennsylvania — in such a random place, nonetheless. I texted my manager immediately. $0.99 for these babies… typically closer to $2 each. What a steal!
I had the most amazing long weekend at home. Seeing my friends and family truly made my birthday/Memorial Day weekend one of the best yet. I’ll be posting a full recap soon!
But for now, tell me:
- What’s the best deal you’ve gotten lately on a health food item?
- Would you eat something past its expiration date?
