thingsthatwedo.com - cheese please

I was at my local grocery store the other day roaming around in the early morning. I needed to pick up a few items for lunch. As I browsed along in the salad section, I came across this.

Guess what I got for $2?

I did a double take. No wait, maybe I did a triple take. Sure enough, the price was $2. Inside the container: individually wrapped Cracker Barrel medium cheddar cheese. My first thought, “That cheese must be expiring today.” So, I took a good look at the expiry date. I still had a whole 6 weeks so I picked up the container and shared my good fortune with my pals at work.

At lunchtime, I opened up the container and this is what I found:

20 individually wrapped portions of medium cheddar cheese. Wow, talk about a great deal! Each package is 21 grams x 20 = 420 grams of cheese. I can’t get a big block of cheddar cheese for $2 even when it’s on sale! Of course, if I hated cheese, then this would be a moot point because I would have never spend money on something I don’t care for even if it is on sale. I just happen to have a weak spot for cheddar cheese.

At the time of this post, I still have a few packages left of the cheddar cheese at work. I don’t eat it daily and use it as a mid afternoon snack paired with some rice crackers. The cheese tastes great with that signature cheddar cheese flavour.

This was by far the best way to spend $2.

Lesson Learned: when shopping, it’s always ideal to keep your eyes open. You never know when you might stumble on a great deal. This wasn’t a store wide advertised sale and it definitely wasn’t in any store flyer. Likely, this was an overstock of some sort and it was a quick drop in price to clear out the inventory. I’m just glad I spotted it!
