So I thought it would be fun, now that we’ve all tried out some Essential Everyday products at Jewel (or our local SuperValu-owned equivalent) with the $1.00 coupons in two sets of summer booklets, to talk about the ones we’ve liked — and the ones we’ll avoid in future. I’ll start
Whole cashews. They gave us a couple of products to try out at the SuperValu visit last week, and I brought home this canister. Go for the name-brand — as you can see, these were 90% NOT whole cashews once we popped open the container, and were not the best quality.
- We did try both the regular and honey roasted peanuts, though, and those were fine — so it’s probably just the “fancier” nuts.
We also didn’t care for the fruit snacks, which were, for lack of a better word, grainy.
- Ingredient beans — I’ve gotten kidney and cannellini, and my chili isn’t any different…
- Instant oatmeal — Got some sort of cinnamon swirl kind, which is a kid hit.
- Liquid water enhancers — this came in the BBQ kit from the Jewel grilling favorites giveaway (be sure to enter!), and MashupDad is now a huge fan.
So how about you?
