On Sale This Week: Brussels Sprouts

01 November 2017

Brussels Sprouts on the stalk make all the difference.

Most of the time, we feature sale items from the three main grocery stores: Fry’s Food, Safeway, Sprouts. But there are some other stores in town with great food bargains in town. Like Trader Joe’s. And right now, Trader Joe’s has a great deal on Brussels Sprouts.

Ok, so you’re not the biggest fan of Brussels Sprouts? That might be because you’ve never had them fresh from the stalk. 

I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest Brussels Sprouts fan, either, but my husband loves them.  I think they are sometimes bitter, and I’m not excited about the texture. But, when you get Brussels Sprouts from the stalk, all that changes. They are fresh and not bitter. Right now, Trader Joe’s has Brussels Sprouts on the stalk for just $3.99.  

I think they taste the best when the sprouts are on the smaller size. If they’re on the stalk, I pull them off, wash them, and remove the outer leaves. Then I prepare them.  

Brussels Sprouts are highly nutritious, so you can feel very righteous as you munch on them. 

Look for recipes at the end of the article. 

Don’t Forget Senior Discount Day!

Wednesday, November 1, is Senior Discount Day at Safeway and Fry’s. All customers 55 years and older get a 10% discount on their whole order. Once the computer knows you are over 55 it will automatically give you the discount. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you buy! Sprouts doesn’t participate in this promotion, but you do get the advertised prices from both last week’s and this week’s ad. 

Also, it’s the day after Halloween. That means Halloween candy and other items will likely be ½ off. A 60% discount removes all guilt! ;)

Each store is starting to promote Thanksgiving turkeys and fixin’s. Look for that, and start stocking up now. Sprouts has a nice discount on Red Mill products, I always prefer their flour for baking.  

As always, prices are for this area and for Safeway and Fry's will require at least a Club Membership card. Some may require digital coupons as well. We try to indicate all restrictions, special conditions etc. Sprouts does not require any cards and does not have any special savings days. Every week Sprouts has double ad Wednesday, when you get last week’s and this week’s ad prices. All three stores have digital savings available to those with appropriate accounts.  

Go to their web pages for details and directions. Fry’s at least will give you the advertised digital price if you state you do not have the necessary technology. Safeway sometimes has coupons which you can access digitally or clip out of the ad.
