The Penguin has been spotted!

Posted December 3, 2011



The display of coupons that appears about 4 times a year has been spotted! I bet you can guess why we call him the Penguin! As you can see from the picture, the display is shaped like a big giant penguin and it has a number of tear pads with coupons.  The coupons are all manufacturer's coupons and they expires on 1/31/2012.

I found this Penguin at the Lowes Foods in the 40/42 area at the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 42 today (12/3).

There are considerably fewer coupons on this display than we have seen in the past. Instead, you will find a number of recipe tear pads. There are a couple good coupons on the display, though.  Here are the ones I found. There was one completely empty tear pad so I don't know what coupon had been there. 

$1/2 Sargento products

$1/4 Bird's Eye Steamfresh varieties

$1/2 packages of PictSweet Deluxe Steamables or Deluxe sides (indicates Do Not Double, bar code starts with a 5)

$1/2 frozen Pillsbury Egg Scrambles or Grands Biscui Sandwiches

$1.00 off 1 T.G.I. Friday's frozen snack

    She is adorable and has such a twinkle in her eye! I know she is a fun person just from the picture.

    So storks deliver babies and penguins deliver baby junk. Interesting, Oxy. And very nice of you to offer to assist in penguin delivery.

    Nancy & bluepenguin,

    I'm on it. My FIL lives in Jacksonville, well Orange Park but close enough, and we're planning to visit in January. You two figure out what you need to figure out, I'll do my best to make sure that, around all the baby's junk, it'll fit in my car. No promises, but I'll do my best.

    "For the record, I do not do tights. ;-)"

    LOL - that cracked me up :) Ok, so we won't ask you to wear tights, even though they're cute if they're striped LOL
