    I can't find it either. I know it was there earlier, they must have made a mistake, now it is blueberries B1G1.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jan 9, 2014

    Scoutmom - I do not see it on the home page of ht.com. Maybe they realized the error and took it off. As you already posted, it is not on sale on the Express Lane.

  • scoutmomof2 Jan 9, 2014

    According to the homepage for HT, milk is 2.99 will your vic card. But it does not show like that in the express lane.
