    I just had the best shopping trip in Food Lion ever! Long story short, I was wondering around I often do lol...someone asked me what I was looking for and I said County Time Lemonade. He directed me where it was. When I came back by him heading to the register, he handed me coupons for the lemonade. WOOHOO!! I thanked him a hundred times. Come to find out, he is a rep for Kraft. He said "I have some more coupons for you if you have a few minutes". A few minutes...??? I told him I had all We talked while he handed me coupon after coupon after coupon after coupon. After all the blinkies that I miss...the coupon gods are looking out for me.
    Big shout out to Randy from Kraft!!! Thank you!
