These were strawberries that we saw in Grand Central Station for $6.99/lb. Seriously, who buys this stuff? (Crazy, especially when you can find $.99 strawberries in Chinatown!)
I'm such a nerd. (really.) Checking out produce prices (or prices on eggs, milk, etc.) is just something I love to do, so I made my family stop at an Aldi in Bennington Vermont while we were traveling this week. (Anyone ever heard of Bennington, Vermont? It's a cute but tiny little town so I was so impressed they even had an Aldi!)
Just for fun, here were a few of their produce prices. . .
Grapes $2.98/2 lb. (great price!)
Apples $2.99/3 lb. bag
Bananas $.22/lb. (they had clearanced them to get rid of them all ~ do you know how badly it hurt not to pick some of those up to make some Banana Blueberry Bread?) 😉
Pineapple $1.29 (they're $.99 at our local store this week)
Corn $1.49/4 ears
Spices $.99 (if you need spices, Aldi is your place to stock up!)
And, just for fun I noticed this cute Fisher Price swing for just $14.99 ~ retails for $19.97 on Amazon
We picked up some grapes, bread and PB&J for more bargain meals along the road, but it was all I could do to pass some of those produce prices by. They also don't charge tax on groceries in Vermont (love that!)
