Fresh Finds...Sprout's deals.

I am really so easily excited. I even had to text my friends the news as soon as I left the store. Sprout's now has organic coconut sugar in bulk! $4.99. Seriously, good news. They also have coconut flour in bulk as well and it is on sale through March 29th. What more could I ask for? I'll tell you...Here is what else filled my cart tonight:

Applegate Farms organic, uncured lunch meats: $5.99 (original price, $7.99)

Organic apples: $.99/lb

Crofter's organic, no sugar added jams: $3

Annie's organic fruit snacks, no sugar: $3

Cascade Valley organic granola bars: $2.79

Organic potatoes, 5 lbs for $2.50

3 lbs clementines: $1.98

Organic Pears, 3lbs for $1.98 (I think)

Organic applesauce $2.98 for 23 oz.

Most of these deals are good until at least next Wednesday. Some until the end of the month. It was a good trip. I love when shopping trips turn magical.

awesome, thank goodness the coconut sugar I ordered from Azure didn't come this week. I am heading to sprouts!!

I have heard of coconut oil, but not coconut sugar. Do you use it in place of white sugar? Is the ratio the same? Is it healthier? I have been looking for some sugar replacements for baking, besides honey which doesnt always work.

Thanks for the good deals!

Yay! I've been waiting for the coconut sugar to come in the bulk section since the new year (I read about it in their newsletter). Hooray!

Also, I just saw some Rudi's GF bread at Costco in the frozen section. It's 2 loaves for $6.99 - I couldn't remember whether you'd posted about it or not. It's a fabulous deal! I only wish I could buy it :( But it has corn in it which we can't do!

Coconut sugar is much healthier as it is not refined like white sugar. It is just evaporated coconut sap from the flowers of the coconut tree. You can use it in the same ratio. I use it to bake with in all my recipes. It has more of a molasses type flavor but no aftertaste and I love the flavor. It is low glycemic so it doesn't raise your blood sugar like white sugar. It melts quicker than white sugar or brown sugar and has a good carmel affect if you like that. I love it in my cinnamon rolls.

Awesome post, Shari! I get happy about simple things like this, too! I love finding organic food within a reasonable price range.

We are so blessed to have Azure Standard, Sprouts, Fresh & Easy, Walmart and Costco (and Trader Joes and those other stores that are too far from me) carry healthy options to shop from!
