Popsicle Molds from HEB
Now that it’s summertime, I’ve been craving iced treats. I found several popsicle recipes on Pinterest, so I decided to make my own. I went to Target on Great Hills and Research Blvd. and couldn’t find popsicle molds. I walked all around the HEB in the Arboretum searching for them; still no luck. I finally found a set of four at Bed Bath & Beyond. They were $4.99 ($4.32 with a 20% off coupon and tax). I thought I was getting a good deal. Well, last night Ben and I were back at the same HEB and guess what we came across in the crackers/cookies aisle…CRAYOLA POPSICLE MOLDS! These are way better than the BB&B ones because 1) they were only $1.97 and 2) the popsicles come out of the molds more easily.
- Bed Bath & Beyond is still expensive even with coupons.
- I should go up and down each aisle in HEB to find what I need.
Today, I finally went to the Sprouts off of Research Blvd. and Great Hills Trail. I moved to Austin back in October and live just a mile away from Sprouts. I really wish I had moved out of the comfort zone that is HEB and visited my neighborhood Sprouts months ago.
Anyway, I discovered that they sell Peet’s Coffee! Now, I don’t know what the big deal is about Peet’s, but my husband loves it. He was pretty disappointed when he found out there were no Peet’s stores in Texas. So, I bought several bags for him when I was in LA last month.
You can imagine how happy (and ridiculous!) I felt when I saw that Sprouts stocked Peet’s coffee. After doing a little more research, I found out that many places in Austin actually carry it.
Lesson learned: Peet’s isn’t that elusive. To see which of your neighborhood grocery stores carry it, go here.
