There is no Homesense store near me, so no idea.
Also I'm in Ottawa.

-those new Cadbury bars sound really good!
I will have to buy them.

The sprouted grains may be on their way out, the price now ends in 7, $7.97 if I remember correctly.

The cheese section has a product I hadn't noticed previously, Saputo Parmesan Petals. A jug of coarse shredded Parmesan cheese.

I was disappointed that the sprouts were very short or not showing, although the toasting process may have affected them. Anyway I passed. But it is always worth checking the Costco aisles to see what the buyers are trying.
I bought a gram of saffron threads there for $15, only to find that Winners had it for $8.

Nice find! I'll have to check what the prices are @ Loblaws vs online.

Well.ca has had them for at least a year or two.

I usually buy the Ginger people brand when in the US as it is much cheaper.
the peanut ginger is good and so is the apple cinnamon ginger.

I am not a fan of mango ginger or mint ginger.
-but everyone likes different things :)

I saw that, too. You really can't beat the prices on this kind of stuff at HomeSense/Winners.

They have good size jars of Chipotle and Jalapeno flakes right now for $6.99. Just a week after I spent a couple of hours (coughing and sneezing) grinding my own from whole peppers!!!

I looked for your thread but couldn't think of a unique enough word to bring it up. Maybe the moderators could merge the two?

Have you tried pickled green beans? Extreme Beans are good.

New every January are whole pork shoulders or legs at $1/lb or less.
Loblaws has them this week, and the other stores are sure to follow.
Not for the meek of heart, these are huge bone-in joints with skin on. Ideal for curing and smoking, pulled pork, cracklins, or cutting into smaller roasts with your knife skills or a saw.

Superstore also has them this week. Independent last week. I'm thinking of some pulled pork with a shoulder.

Oh, and, as noted on the BBQ thread, 88 cents a pound at Food Basics.

There's a guy at a farmer's market close by in the summer who has pickled green beans. Pretty good.
I asked him if he's ever done pickled okra before. He says he has but it's difficult to package it and keep the proper texture.
I might try this recipe a try...

I was thinking of doing pulled pork with FB special as well. Wasn't sure if using the bone in shoulder would be a pain or not though.

Bone-in is no trouble, really. You have to cool the roast to pull the meat, maybe with silicone gloves, and it just peels off the bone. You can put the skin under the broiler for crackling, and save the bone for soup or stock.

you could probably make your own pickled okra and eat it a week or a few days later.
I have made pickled and pickled vegetables, but do not have a canning system, so just make what I could eat in a week or two.

I used to pickling spices from Nuts online, they are pretty cheap and good quality.

I find the bone-in cooks more evenly and quicker.

yah i bought another chicken and veggie on the weekend, havent tried the 2 others.

I am going to add Larabars to the list - again prob not a new product, but a product i have tried in the last year due to some health issues - it is gluten/dairy/soy free vegan and kosher...1 made of dates, peanut butter and roasted peanuts, another with dates, almonds, dried apples, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon, another cashews and dates (prob my favourite)...very good and satisfy my sweet craving..$11 for a case of 12 at costco
