  • Southern Grove California Golden Raisins ($2.79) – Hooray this seasonal item is back! There is no better raisin, than the GOLDEN RAISIN! I love these in my oatmeal and of course Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. And my kids just eat these bad boys by themselves. This price ROCKS too…I use to pay $4+ elsewhere!
  • Specially Selected Naan Bread, 4 ct ($2.99) – Serve up with Tikka Masala or turn in to pizzas…these are the BOMB!
  • Specially Selected Brioche Loaf  ($3.99) – The Chocolate Chip variety is seriously dangerous.  Make sure your elastic waistband pants are ready to wear before buying.
