Popsicles Molds

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.

Lessons learned:

  • Bed Bath & Beyond is still expensive even with coupons.
  • I should go up and down each aisle in HEB to find what I need.

Sprouts sells Peet’s Coffee!

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.
