Jolene’s 99 Cents Only Shopping Trip 2/27

99 cents Only 2-27

Greek Gods Yogurt + springtime produce favorites on today’s 99 Cents Only trip:

1.   Greek Gods Nonfat Yogurt, 32oz (!!)
2.   Activia, 4pk
3.   Food Should Taste Good Chips, 5.5oz
4.   Glutino Gluten Free Cookies, 300grams
5.   Marie’s Buttermilk Dip, 15.5oz chilled
6.   Fresh Sugar Snap Peas, 1 lb (!)
7.   Fresh Snow Peas, 10oz (!)
8.   Fresh English Cucumber
9.   Golden Grape Tomatoes Limited Ed.

Crunchy food textures are my favorite!  I read that munching on crunchy foods relieves stress — stress gets released through the kinetic energy of your mouth having a workout.  Maybe that explains why I tend to reach for Doritos during stressful moments (Ugh!).  As a healthier alternative, but to still get my crunch factor, I loaded my fridge with Fresh Sugar Snap Peas, Snow Peas, and Cucumber slices!  Eaten plain or dipped in the Marie’s will be satisfying.  Greek Gods Yogurt is my hands-down luxury, and $1 for 32oz is a steal.  I am going to make Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Dip) with the yogurt & cucumber…let me know if you’d like the recipe!  The Food Should Taste Good Chips came in these varieties: Olive, Jalapeno, Lime, and Chocolate.  Be on the lookout for pints of Fresh Blueberries, too!

  1. Also look for:
    LARABAR uber Sweet & Salty Fruit & Nut Bars, 5ct box for $1
    Silk Iced Mocha Latte, 64oz chilled
    Lean Cuisine Bagged Frozen Meals
    I stocked-up on the LARABAR uber! Target was selling the 5ct box for $6! These are called Cherry Cobbler & are loaded w/ almonds, dried cherries, pecans, cashews, dates, non-GMO, and can’t beat 20cents per LARABAR. The Silk Mocha Latte 64oz is selling at Target for $3.99!

  2. Jolene,
    Do you know when the Clayton Rd store restocks? I was there on Monday and didn’t see some of the stuff you posted about! :)

    • Suzy,
      My best shopping at the Clayton Road store is Tue, Thu, and/or Sat around midday or later. The fresh produce gets delivered those days. For other non produce stuff, the staff is constantly stocking shelves and fridge area. Don’t go too early in the morning like 8-9am because the staff needs time to get things unpacked and out. Good luck and above all, just Have Fun:)

  3. Would love the recipe for the Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber Dip) – Thanks!!! And thanks for these posts…I love them!

    I snagged the Greek yogurt too. I also found 10 ct boxes of fiber one 90 calorie bars! It was also to see that they had a selection of lettuce (romaine hearts and bagged salad). I left there a very happy lady, I haven’t been having very good luck there lately so it was nice to get some awesome deals!!

  5. I saw the bagged Lean Cuisine meals on Monday but they were gone when I went back this morning. They only had the french bread pizzas in stock. I grabbed a bag of Nabisco Newtons Fruit thins 10.5oz (Cranberry Citrus Oat) that are currently 3.99 at Safeway right now.

    • Shannon, we love those Newtons Thins Cranberry Citrus Oat! They’re crunchy (lol), but with a healthy whole wheat slant…and not overly sweet. I had the choice of grabbing those Newtons or the Keebler, and I went for the Newtons :)

  6. I found the Greek Yogurt today, but in the Honey & Strawberry Flavor. I also found the Newton Cranberry Citrus Oat Thins, and the Lean Cuisines. I found the Silk Latte last week! I went to a newly opened store and found a ton of great stuff. I have yet to find the Larabars though. They only sell them individually for $.79 each. Boo!
