I stopped to pick up some cilantro and mint and browse all the pretty, picture perfect produce ... ended up picking up one cubano pepper, 5 pablano peppers (for my stuffed peppers coming soon!), and then wandered to the meat department as they had the 85/15 ground beef for $3.99, grabbed 2 lbs.
Then, I looked at the fresh packed chiller ... which I never do as that stuff is EXPENSIVE ... and spotted boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
I save my purchase of same for Costco, I can never find it cheap elsewhere.
WRONG. Tonight, Whole Foods had the vacuum packed stuff for $1.69 a pound. Really.
So I scooped up 6 packages (about 18 lbs worth?). And spent a total of $61 after tax and all (oh, yeah, a quick stop at the salad bar to grab some romaine lettuce) ...
So, I get home and notice that the packages had all been relabeled.
They are labeled as WHOLE CHICKEN. Not boneless skinless chicken thighs.
Out of curiosity, I peeled off the label for the old price.
$3.79 per pound.
Yup. That's more like the Whole Food pricing. I'm wondering what happened and why someone re-priced them? Sell by date is March 5 so that was fine too.
My point is, pay attention and do look at the pricing. I just got so dang excited :)
Yup, I have lots of chicken again. Believe I will be whipping a dish or two up in the crock pot very soon :)
Happy Shopping and keep your eyes open!
