Yeah, but if you need groceries, you need groceries.

I know the Darigold brand from my kid days going to Blaine, Bellingham, Birch Bay etc. for day visits & camping in summer. Loved their ice cream back then.

That's quite a price difference from here, & I didn't quite expect that much of a spread.

I do see some of your food ads on tv but hadn't heard anything about dairy other than milk. Thanks for checking that Spud.

Perhaps I should have turned-back before reaching the store, so as to not pass-on any pathogens I have to others, but I did use hand wipes, and kept my sneezing and coughing under control.

Thank Joan.  I thought I felt like going shopping today, but was wrong.  Running nose and eyes got worse as I drove and shopped, but I plowed through, and bought what I wanted.  

Patricia, the cheapest brand of butter (Darigold), at WinCo, my favorite grocery store, is $2.58/lb.

Big Ag is what sucks up most of what water is left out here.

I wonder how the almond crop is doing in California? I know the drought has hurt them. The reason I ask is, I'm a huge fan of almonds. I eat them raw, roasted, buy almond "peanut" butter, and almond milk, among others. I would use almond flour, but it's just too darn expensive. But then again, so are all almond products.

Spud, I hope you are sprouting new wings and feeling great from tip to toe. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 12, 2015 at 6:42pm

Thanks Patricia.

Comment by Patricia on March 12, 2015 at 6:41pm

Feel better soon, Spud.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 12, 2015 at 6:39pm

As soon as I'm feeling better (hopefully tomorrow), I'm going shopping and will "return and report" on the price of butter.

I don't remember because I use so little of it that I very seldom buy it.  My fridge is full of margarine because that's what tastes best to me.

Comment by Patricia on March 12, 2015 at 5:57pm

I did wonder because so many of your groceries are cheaper than ours.

We pay $4.99 reg., & sometimes on sale at $4.49, $3.99, $3.49, & on very rare occasions, $2.99. November seems to the THE best month so I try to buy several at that time.
