They have good frozen veggies, my kids and I like their chocolate chips, and the Salsa Autentica goes great with their blue corn tortilla chips (which I no longer buy due to being unable to exercise self control ). I haven't comparison shopped in a while, but I think their dairy products still go for a competitive price. They used to carry an habanero salsa that was awesome - I would destroy a tub of it, and the next day it would destroy me.

Well if their beer and wine and pizza dough is good it will be a worthwhile trip for me. Is it true that their charcoal is rancher?

Some things we always buy when we stop in:
Garlic naan
Orange chicken (frozen food section)
Whole coffee beans
Fried rice (frozen food section)
Pizza dough
Dried fruits (apricots are our favorite)
Edamame hummus (refrigerated section)
Depending on season we've really liked the heirloom tomatoes and stalks of Brussels sprouts too.

Ohh yea! Coffee

We buy all our whole bean coffee here. At 4.99/lb it's tough to beat

Sounds like some things will definitely be good to try. I've wanted to try rancher for years at the recommendation of the brethren. Thanks Brethren!

The lump is Rancher. They also have a natural briquette that is quite good.

Oh, in the forzen meat section, the fish is not bad, but, sometimes they have 'Kobe' beef burgers, maybe they label it Wagyu now, from Snake River Farms. They are great.

Where to start. Mine never has had charcoal or lump.
The jalapeno stuffed olives are a great buy, way cheaper then anywhere else.
As said three buck chuck is a bargain, doesnt taste like a 3 dollar wine either.
The fresh breads are tastybut not a bargain,, find out what day they get thier deliveries.
If you want to splurge try the New York style cheesecake in the frozen section, or any of the frozen desserts.

And never go there just plain hungry either ... you'll end up spending a fortune, believe me.
