Sure, snickers, butterfingers Ö..whatever. Buy 1, steal 24 free.



You do realize Snickers aren't sold
in produce so you can't put them
on the scale. Of course you don't
know that, obviously.. Have you
ever been in a real grocery store?

My point is that you probably could have got it for free instead of paying $1.



Get one for free or a whole shelf at a big discount??

OK BOB... wrong again! Wegmans had the little ones in a big barrel, along with the other individual small size bars I mentioned. You could mix and match and weigh them and pay a per pound price. You apparently are stuck in a Walmart rut. Get out to a real grocery store! (We now call them newfangled stores "supermarkets"!

We used to have bulk stuff like that
but they went away because too many
people were stealing coffee and nuts
and candy. Haven't seen bulk food
around here in years.

Word on the street is that stealing is common in your part of the country. So sad.

Hmmm... Until the pandemic, Publix grocery stores sold bulk nuts (and candies also, I think). However, I sure hope the stores have removed the bulk dispensers for the duration of the pandemic.

Where I live, they have been sealed off with plastic wrap.

Unfortunate. It's why there are
no police or courts or jails
or cameras in the stores anyplace
else but here. I'm so envious you
live in crime free utopia.

Come to Buffalo/Niagara Falls and I will give you a tour of my local Wegmans. On Saturday and Sunday mornings you can roam around the store and get a full meal in tiny samples, one at a time!

Never liked bulk food, too many
sticking their dirty germy hands
into the barrels for free samples.

My wife is the same. She can't believe buffets even exist.
