Living Social’s Whole Foods Deal
In case you’ve been unplugged all day and haven’t heard or read it,today’s daily deal at Living Social is for Whole Foods. Spend $10 for a $20 grocery certificate. (That’s my affiliate link; if 3 people buy the deal through that link, I get it for free. I don’t really care if you buy through this link, but I thought why not? :)) As of this post time, there are about 16 hours left to purchase it. They were at somewhere around the million mark last time I checked.
ETA: Sold out! They stopped at 1 million deals sold. Can’t say I blame them. Doesn’t this mean WF is out $10MM?
I don’t shop at WF a lot, because I can get most of what I need at the corner grocery or the produce market for a whole lot less. I do like their bulk bins and buy-as-much-as-you-need spice rack, which are very practical ways to purchase for the single person. Also, I appreciate that they have sweet pickle relish that doesn’t have HFCS, which I haven’t been able to find at Kroger. (Yes, Kroger people, that was a strong hint.)
In Other News:
Hummus Chip Shortage?
Has anyone heard about any sort of factory fires or floods at Archer Farms? Or maybe my recent product review caused a buying frenzy? I dunno, because there seems to be a shortage of AF Hummus Chips at Target. I’ve been in two different Target stores this week and encountered empty spaces where the hummus chips should be. TWICE! Please, Target, I want my hummus chips back! NOW!
Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Peeps Pop Up in Stores
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! Halloween Peeps are on the shelves!
This reporter fell victim today, to the tune of 120 calories of yummilicious and glow-in-the-dark-orange-y goodness. Fortunately, she had taken a 1-hour walk earlier in the day and should suffer no lasting effects. You may not be so lucky, or have room in your caloric budget, so approach with caution.
Other things may have happened on the planet today, but those were the most noteworthy to me.
Hope you’re all having an amazing week, so far, and that you avoid the siren call of the Peeps! (Unless, of course, you’re not trying to.)
