Oakland Grocery Outlet yesterday -
The store was overflowing with bargains on plant-based milks - chia, cashew, coconut, soy - at 50 cents and 99 cents for 32 and 64 oz cartons in the refrigerated dairy section and the NOSH shelf.
99 cents/32 oz. - SOW - SEEDS OF WELLNESS, Chia Beverage Original Unsweetened, in the NOSH/Organic aisle and in a separate display near the checkout lines. A chalky, almost bitter melon taste but full of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. I liked it in morning coffee. There is also an unsweetened vanilla version which I haven’t tried yet. From Chile.
99 cents/32 oz - SO Delicious Cashew Milk Dairy Free Unsweetened
$2.99/2.3 oz - Frontier Co-Op Organic Seafood Seasoning, Original. GO has been pretty weak in its spice rack aisle so this might mean a step up. From Frontier Co-Op in Norway IA. The version that I got says that it has 40% less sodium than the Original recipe and contains paprika, sea salt, celery seed, black pepper, mustard , cayenne, rice concentrate, bay leaf, ginger, cinnamon, mace, clove, allspice, cardamom.
$1.99/750 ml - Lucky Duck Malbec from Argentina, 13% ABV. Since Trader Joe’s increased the price of its Charles Shaw Two-Buck-Chuck to $2.99, I’ve been looking for something low-end to sip while watching the NBA Summer League games with teams full of rookies and undrafted free agents. This should do the trick. Also available in an Australian Shiraz.
50 cents/12 oz - Kraft Avocado Oil Mayo Fat Reduced, with a blend of avocado, canola and soybean oils.
