    smolder13 - thanks for the egg catch - so much for that being their every day price on the eggs .... so sad that eggs are going up and up and up and up.

  • GranOFTwenty Jun 12, 2015

    ASCHERER
    I have not found the Freestone peaches yet - you may find some near your mom's in SC (?).
    Many will be from Georgia , SC and NC by the end of the month or early July.
    We eat'em no matter what kind they are ! LOL

  • ascherer Jun 12, 2015

    Thanks. I was thinking it is too early for anything but cling peaches.

  • smolder13 Jun 12, 2015

    Express lane is now showing the 30 count eggs are $4.47 at HT. :(

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Jun 12, 2015

    ascherer - the peaches we got at Kroger this week are cling. I cut into one today and it was bitter, sadly.

    scoutmomof2 - thanks for the coupon!

  • straitlover1965 Jun 12, 2015

    Aschrer, I bought some at the beach last weekend, and they were cling. I think the cling free ones don't really come on until July. Taht's usually when I get them at the farmer's market.

  • scoutmomof2 Jun 12, 2015

    There is a $4/4 Oreo coupon at coupons.com to pair with that Target deal.

  • ascherer Jun 12, 2015

    This question is for anyone that has bought peaches lately. Are they cling peaches (flesh clings to the pit) or just regular peaches that the fruit releases their hold on the peaches? Thanks.
