The Back to Nature cookies are quite the deal. For 50 cents there are 6 1.25 oz packages, the ingredients are, well, natural. I liked the chocolate chip cookies as much as any supermarket cookie with the bonus of no junk and Rainforest Alliance cocoa. Didn't get the Graham crakers, but it is a regular size box. Bin is located in the freezer department.

The Planter's Flavor Grove nuts are great. I'd pay the 99 cents listed on the package. At 59 cents, these are a great bargain. So far I've had the sea salt and olive oil almonds and the jalapeno pistachos (very hot). There's also Sea Salt and black pepper pistachos and creacked pepper almonds. At 120 calories a pack for the pistachos and 250 for the almonds, they are a tasty, long-lasting snack.

Check out the ingredient lists on the ice creams. Simply Enjoy and Central Market had HFCS. The others do not. I tried the Roba Dolce blood orange sorbet. While it didn't knock my socks off, I liked it well enough to try another flavor.

Lots of Easter candy on sale. Since I missed out on Easter food this year, I needed a chocolate fix. The Cadbury egg is fine. The chocolate marshmallow eggs were stale. Last month I had the chocolate marshmallow bunnies (now 25 cents for 8) and they were fine. Avoid the 33 cent milk chocolate bunny.

The mayo is past the expiration date by a few days. Honestly, imo, aging helped the Hellman's. It somehow tastes eggier.
