The Rock Sake is really bad. Avoid.

Is it thanks. I only saw it on the way out since it was stacked by the front door and not with the wine

Organic freeze pops at the East Hayward GO today. And we continue to get decent, name-brand spirits. I don’t get the huge amount of plant-based yogurts, though–we’re not Palo Alto or Berkeley. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Do you like the plant based yogurts at GO? I try to get the regular ones, but wonder about those made with e.g. almond milk.

I only eat regular yogurts. Once I got an oat-based Chobani by mistake and didn’t like it at all. I’m just always surprised at the proliferation of dairy-free yogurts, ice cream, etc. at my local GO.

Hi, sck -
The SO Delicious Organic Coconutmilk yogurt alternatives are very good and get them at several East Bay Grocery Outlet stores. I prefer the plain unsweetened version but the unsweetened and sweetened vanilla are usually available. If they have a batch that is close to the Best By date, the prices are very reasonable.

The market is flooded with yogurt and people are sick of yogurt. There’s a massive overabundance. The only kind I can personally choke down is Fage with honey. https://apnews.com/54850a712d984974adeb73f1f2679f33

The yogurt market has become very segmented. A March 2020 article in Plant Based News claims that even though U.S. dairy yogurt sales declined by 1% in 2019, plant-based yogurt sales increased by 31% for the same period. Other egg and dairy products have also declined. What might be interesting would be to see if vegan-alternative product sales in general have markedly increased in light of COVID-19 with more people eating at home.

Alameda Grocery Outlet a few days ago. The deli and milk refrigerated sections at this GO are much better than the ones in Oakland with more variety and some real bargains on almost expiring items.
