I had the opportunity to go food shopping this evening, which is a bit of a luxury these days given my work schedule. It’d been a while since I’ve been in a Safeway so it was a bit of a treat. I came away from the store with two items of interest.
The first picture you see above is two 12-packs of Kraft Dinner single serving cups. As I eluded to an earlier post, I’ve become quite fond, perhaps too fond of these things. They’re delicious! I usually buy these things at Wal-Mart for about $1.15 each or at 7-11 for the outrageous price of $1.49 each. Well clutch the pearls, was it a surprise when I found these boxes of Kraft Dinner cups at Safeway. Not only were they in convenience box form, they were on sale for $7.99 for 12 cups! These were less than 70 cents per cup! I took little time in scooping up two boxes for myself. You can also see the 12 cups are divided into eight of the original recipe and four of the triple cheese variety. I’ll be eating good for the next few weeks!
The second picture you see are some Aunt Jemima Griddlecake breakfast sandwiches which I found in the freezer section. Now, you may not know this but for the longest time, I’ve lamented the lack of hearty and quick breakfast items in the grocery store. Sure, you can get all the frozen waffles and pancakes in the world but what about a heartier kind of meal? For example, in the US, you can a whole variety of Jimmy Dean breakfast items. That’s why I was so pleased to see the Griddlecakes at Safeway. Make no mistake, these things are a direct copy of McDonald’s McGriddles, right down to the boast of “delicious syrup flavour BUILT IN”. Note they mentioned “syrup flavour” as opposed to actual syrup baked into the griddle cakes. As you can expect, these thing aren’t exactly healthy for you either, with 21g of fat in each approx. 125g sandwich. I will try these as an experiment as I won’t let myself eat one too often.
Wow, what a sophisticated and refined palate I have!
