Anyone shopped Big Lots for grocery items?

Several months ago we put a local Big Lots into our shopping mix to wean ourselves from a large chain grocer. Big Lots became our paper products supplier; ALDI, our produce and frozen foods source; and Trader Joe's, a stop for fresh meats, cheeses, beer/wine/coffee, and bread.

Earlier this week we found ourselves with bananas extra ripe, so my DW suggested looking in Big Lots for Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and walnuts to convert the bananas into desert bread. But that's not all we bought there this trip.

We also came away with Louisiana Supreme Steak Sauce, Madison Square Dijon Mustard, two different bags of Chex Mix, a 30 oz bag of Schultz Pretzels, and a 16 oz can of GK Party Peanuts, and two different Gluten Free Bob's Red Mill products. I was surprized at how inexpensive the grocery bill totaled.

So my question is: do any other 'hounds find themselves in the grocery aisle at Big Lots?
