Good deal on shredded cheese!

Posted February 25, 2012

In case you missed my post on Wednesday, Food Lion has a very good deal on cheese this weekend.

They are having a 3-Day sale (Friday, 2/24 - Sunday, 2/26). The Food Lion My Essentials brand shredded cheese, 8 oz., is on sale BOGO through Sunday. The sale price for each one ends up being $1.15 - a very good deal these days for 8 oz shredded cheese.

There is a limit of 2 free, so you can buy 4 bags for $4.60 total plus tax.

    FYI - this appears to be a limit of 4 per transaction. I bought 4 more at Food Lion today and they rang up 1/2 price as well.

    gailygoo - now I have some cheese to freeze! :-)

    Thanks so much for posting this, I will be picking up my 4 bags tomorrow!

    I definitely freeze cheese, gailgoo. We were out in the freezer, too. The horrors! LOL

    It's been a while since there was a good stock up sale on cheese (.75 or less per 8 oz bag) so I have just been buying when it is $1 - $1.40 or so per bag.

    Ta-Da! Kroger was out of Fuji apples tonight, got a raincheck :) That's actually better since it allows me to spread out the purchase and cook batches at different times! Ahhhh, love rain checks :)

    Faye! Out of shredded cheese - that IS a horror! I check my freezer regularly to make sure I'm not getting close to being out of any one son puts shredded cheese on everything but cereal LOL

    Funny, I just got back from Food Lion, and was going to report in on my four bags! And I have half a mound of HT Pizza dough, so I know how some of it is going to be used...

    Also, my FL (Spring Forest/401) had an area of clearance items, one of which was Libby's Canned Pumpkin for .75...exp date is 2014 so have plenty of time to use it :)

    Faye we freeze ours. Don't you?

    I was actually out of shredded cheese, Nancy. The horror! But not anymore. I have 4 bags in the fridge and we will be making homemeade pizza with part of 1 tonight. :-)

    That is really such a good deal on the apples at Kroger! You are the applesauce queen!

  • Nancy Feb 25, 2012

    That is a great deal! I may have to pick some up to round off the supply :)

    Also want to scoot out to Kroger and get another 10 lbs or so of the Fuji apples @ 77 cents a pound! They're a great size and I can make enough applesauce to limp along until the next great sale :)
