So, normally I don’t do sale and deal alerts here, partially because other bloggers cover that really well, and partly because deal blogging doesn’t really blow my hair back. Today, though, I’m making an exception because not one, but two grocery stores have Gold Medal flour on sale this week, and that reallllly blows my hair back! Gold Medal unbleached is my very favorite flour for baking.
Safeway, which is a nationwide chain, has 5 pound bags on sale for $1.29. The ad pictures the bleached variety, but Safeway’s flour sales almost always include unbleached flour as well. I much prefer the unbleached flour for baking, so I plan to stop at Safeway and see if I can snag some.
If Safeway only has the bleached on sale, my next stop will be Superfresh, which has Gold Medal flour on sale. Their price is $1.50 for a 5 pound bag, and the Superfresh ad specifies that the unbleached variety is indeed included in the sale.
So, worst case scenario, I’ll end up paying $1.50 for each bag, which is still a really awesome price (it’s the best I could find at Christmas, in fact).
Edit: I just discovered that Weis Markets also has Gold Medal on sale for $1.50! My goodness, it’s a happy week for flour shopping.
If you don’t have a Safeway or Superfresh near you, don’t be entirely discouraged. Many, many grocery stores tend to put flour on sale right before Easter, so peruse your local store flyers…you might be able to take advantage of a flour sale along with me.
