Have you noticed any "bad" deals at the grocery store lately?

Hubby likes to snack on beef jerky and I was getting him a couple of bags a week.  This week when I went to get it for him the 10oz bags that were $5.72 last week were $10.79 this week!  I can't imagine why something would nearly double in the course of 7 days but it did.  Now I'm looking for beef jerky marinade recipes to make my own.  What is the worst deal you've seen in the grocery store lately?

  • Ice cream, though it's not quite as "lately". Aside from them no longer making 1/2 gallons of ice cream anymore, the price on those not quite half gallons keeps edging up.

  • I think all things are going up. I mean look at the price of milk but to me the main hike to me is bread prices. Plus I think while the departments stores have deals the grocery stores up theirs.

  • Actually the stores in my area are cheaper then the big discount stores in the minneapolis suburbs, I live 3 hours north of there.
    My daughter is down there and she is always calling me telling me what good sales are at Cub foods and I will tell her that those things are cheaper up here and not that good of a buy.

  • Hey wheresthewayout--where are you from I am about that far north of the cities too---anyway everything has gone up and there is nothing on sale this week!!! I only by the sales every week and not there is nothing on sale uggggg but here is a bad price--- Pace mild or medium picante sauce-- 30 oz $2.49 I do not think that is much of a sale I can go to walmart and get a big generic bottle for a dollar something, and it tastes almost the same.
