    So, another quick shout out for my online shopping experiences with Jewel(s) [tee-hee]

    Made a pickup order. Got home, found a few missing items and a checkout coupon code was not applied. Started an online chat session with whoever is manning their support lines, and was happily refunded the cost of the items and the coupon. It was 16 bucks, enough to catch my attention...well maybe it was because they forgot my MUTHA&^*#%$# TWIZZLERS, but we'll say it was the money.

    I'm no killer, but don't push me.

    I just got back from Jewel, but I passed on the coconut water and the pringles. The coconut water I am not sure if I would like it, and the pringles I don't need. I did see bacon terminator pringles though, and with the J4U, they are only $.49.

    Just for old times' sake I claimed my free bottle of coconut water even though I almost never drink the stuff. I didn't even consider claiming the Pringles (hate those pseudo-chips!) but if I'd known Baconator Pringles were available I surely would have.

    Pringles wrote:When you’re craving all the flavors of a Wendy’s® Baconator in a one bite Pringles crisp. Each Pringles Baconator crisp tastes like a half-pound of fresh, never frozen beef, American cheese, six strips of crispy Applewood smoked bacon, ketchup, and mayo. The only thing missing is the Frosty®.

    A gallon of milk for $0.99 and a case of 10 large Tommy Atkins mangoes (bland and fibrous but durable according to Mango Maven) for $1.99 made my rare-these-days Jewel visit worthwhile even without the Pringles.

    When the freebie is some brand of "Energy Drink" we'll know we're fully back to normal.

    I looked at the mangoes, but they did not look like they were ripe, and 8 mangoes is a lot for one person anyway, and so I just got some bananas, one pineapple, and one package of strawberries only because the strawberries were so cheap. I bought two quarts for a lot more money at the farmer's market yesterday. I go to Jewel more than I do any other store besides the farmers market, just because it is the most convenient for me, and I am not a big fan of Trader Joe's which is across the street.

    I am down to my last roll of toilet paper, and I decided I better get some, and they had it, but it was mostly toilet paper in Spanish. The only name brand they had was Angel Soft. I ended up getting a package of four rolls in Spanish, and I have no idea what it is like, but it is only $1, and I figure I can live with it for $1. The Pringles are on sale through Tuesday, and so people can still go to get the bacon terminator ones. They had lots of different pringles to choose from.

    I had to get some garbage bags too, and I had to pay $10 including tax for those though. There are not any deals on garbage bags right now, but I got 45 of them, and so that should last me close to a year.

    Has anyone else deduced that Jewel's corporate office heard on radio the Progressive Insurance spot in which "Flo" took a pot shot at the word 'butter-y'? :lol:

    A coworker that I trust with food knowledge sent me a msg about Red Kent mangos at her Jewel: "Buy them ALL, asap."

    I'm out of town, or I would have rushed to find a few. Actually, I'm gonna see if I can find any at the big grocery store where I am.

    When cheap mangos "pop," I've found it to be a wildly quick swing between VERY good batches and weird, stringy batches.

    Hi,

    Years ago, an Indian neighbor advised 'Kent' were the best.

    I will go seek them, thanks!

    I think I saw the Kent ones at the Chicago Ave. Jewel in Evanston on Sunday. I was tempted because they were ripe, but I would have to eat ten mangos which is a lot for one person. I think they were $3.99. Does anybody have any idea where they are from? I assume Mexico, but I could not tell by looking at the box. I have a hangup about Mexican produce. Thanks, Nancy

    I'm not sure which ones are the best. I'm convinced that they are constantly mislabeled (with no proof other than I've gotten incredible ones labeled with the same sticker, and from the same bin as crappy, stringy, ones.)

    I've always assumed Alphonos are the best, but every so often you'll get one of these cheap ones from the right bin at the right time, and they are incredible.

    I probably do but that's irrelevant. I've worked in the fruit industry for over 25 years. People talk. We hear things. Alphonso is King. No one in our universe has ever opined otherwise. They are only grown in India. They cannot originate from anywhere else and legitimately be called Alphonso.

    But I don't think they travel particularly well (to the U.S.) as whole fruit. They're either picked too early to avoid damage in transit or they're picked at the right time and are too soft to withstand the perils of shipping. Consider a fresh, ripe Alphonso mango to be your fresh fruit unicorn. :lol:
