For Christmas, my lovely wife decided to take me on a tour of (mostly) Eastern Europe via snacks. Last year it was a selection of British sweets, this year Poland, Ukraine, Russia, etc. Below is a summary and I’ll post follow ups as these are consumed.
Did a quick bit of grocerysploring today, checking out Christmas clearance and seeing what’s out there for new post-Christmas items. As you’ve no doubt noticed, Valentine’s Day is in full swing all over the place. Continue reading
Walmart shows them as a thing on their website, but they were a no-show in Glenville and Clifton Park yesterday. Anybody have any luck?
I can’t say I was ready to rush out and buy this new seasonal candy bar from Stewart’s when I first heard about them. But I do buy a carton of eggnog each year to sip during Christmas baking, so I guess it was inevitable that I was going to give one a shot given the chance. Popping in for some milk recently was that chance.
Weirdly we never saw these before Halloween, but looking through clearance (currently 30% off) candy at the Clifton Park Target I found these Banana flavored Bob the Minion Pops. Of course I had to get them, although I didn’t expect much.
It wasn’t easy, but I did track down the Hot Chocolate m&m’s at the Glenville Walmart. Both local Walmarts are doing a sloooooooow transition to Christmas (which is fine with the me-me, but annoys the food-blogger-gimme-new-Christmas-stuff-me). Target’s are worse, they’ve basically got nothing going on on the food front, yet.
Wow, did I get suckered by the Stew Leonard’s hype machine and a lot of apparently closeted grocerystourists. We recently took a packaged day trip focused on a boat tour of the Thimble Islands of Connecticut. Amongst a couple of other stops, it also included what I was looking forward to the most – a stop at the “famous” Stew Leonard’s flagship store! Prime grocerystourism opportunity!
