The simplest ideas are always the best. Some chowhound-savvy genius, namely one rworange, started a thread on that website for people to give updates on what’s at scratch-and-dent heaven, aka Grocery Outlet. This is great, as everybody knows Groce-Out has the best deals on the planet, usually on a bunch of stuff you’d never want, but occasionally on items you could really stock up on.
Challenge European style butter is back, unsalted, 1/2 lb for $1.49. Just in time for holiday baking.More Terra chips, salt and vinegar, blues, and a new one, red, stripes and blues or something like that. $1.99Liked the watermelon juice, a bit sweet but for 69cents, a good way to get in the sandia daily quotient.Almond/cashew Roca, $4.99.One product that didn’t work out was the fresh lasagne sheets imported from Italy for $1.99. No expiration date and the lot number stamped on the plastic was illegible. They were all stuck together and tore when we tried to pull them apart. Cynsa got the brilliant idea of slipping them in some warm water to see if they’d loosen up, which helped somewhat. Between two packages, we salvaged enough to make a mushroom and zucchini lasagna, but it was a lot of work. However, we did like the taste and texture of the product.
