    Thanks MinnieM! I had the store manager trotting along behind me trying to find it last time I looked. We never did, so he gave me the fresh market tea for the HT tea price.

    Grafted - thank you so much for the sweet tea lesson! DW will be in heaven :)

    Faye, you take such good care of us -- thanks for the reminders on my beloved Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

    JDouglas - here's your sweet tea tutorial (lol). I normally make a gallon at a time and I recently measured the amounts of things I use to help someone else learn to make tea. Take about 6 cups of cold water, 5 regular-sized tea bags and bring that to a boil - boil it for right at a minute. (yes, I know what they say about boiling tea - trust me on this one - ha)! After it boils, move it off the burner and let it steep for about 30-45 minutes (minimum of 15). Take out the tea bags and put 1 heaping cup of sugar in your pitcher. Pour the tea in and add cold water to make a gallon and stir till sugar dissolves. Mine is sweet, but not super-sweet - I have friends who use 2 cups of sugar per gallon and that makes it VERY sweet. Now get a glass of ice, pour yourself some tea and enjoy our NC humidity! HA!

    Jdouglas - the Krispy Kreme deal is on July 10. I just reposted it with all the details so look for the first post on the blog. I'll post reminders on the 9th and on the 10th. :-)

    The HT is over in the refrig. section. Near the orange juices.

    Last question. Did I miss the Krispy Kreme deal? I think it was buy a dozen, get a dozen?

  • jdouglas13 Jul 2, 2015

    Another question - does anyone have a good sweet tea recipe for this relocated Yankee? :)

  • jdouglas13 Jul 2, 2015

    OK - dumb question. Where in the store does one find HT brand gallon size containers of ice tea? Like the ones that milk comes in? I walked up and down the aisles of the Clayton stores recently, and came up empty. I found the Fresh Market tea over near the deli, but that isn't the HT brand tea that is on sale...
