Bargain Hunting at Grocery Outlet in Santa Rosa

Melanie Wong | Oct 16, 2006 05:08 AM

On the hunt for more Walkers shortbread for my mom, I stopped at the Grocery Outlet in Santa Rosa today. Struck out on the cookies, but found some other good buys.

$1.49 Haagen Dazs pints of Dulce de leche ice cream, condition is fine with expiration dating in 2007, the one I opened had a big air bubble so this might be an underfilled lot

2/$1 Hain "Imagine" organic creamy corn soup or butternut squash soup, 32 oz., expiration dating 11/2006

$3.99/lb. Ile Boussierois cheese in random weight cuts, can't find any info on the web, from appearance (mottled rind) looked liked it might be similar to Morbier, Comte or Tomme de Savoie, tastes like cows milk base with grassy, nutty flavor, not as dry as Comte and has the smooth and softer texture of Morbier, no holes, moderate age and not as complex as those yet a very nice table cheese whatever it is

$1.79/quart Best Foods Mayonesa con jugo de limon, made in Canada with Spanish/English labeling, made with egg yolks (no whole eggs) and richer flavor and texture than American Hellmans/Best Foods, brighter citrusy snap and sweeter too, expiration dating the end of this month
