I must preface this with I LOVE GROCERY SHOPPING. Literally the best part about turning 16 meant that I could do all the grocery shopping for my mom. It's intimidating when your mom puts something on the list and you accidentally get the wrong thing and she gets mad... but hey. I learned.
So there are a couple Sprouts already in the KC metro but I had yet to venture to one, mainly because I wanted to go on a Wednesday and Wednesdays have been a little busy lately. I wanted to go on a Wednesday because.... DOUBLE THE DEALS. Sprouts weekly ads actually last EIGHT days, meaning that every Wednesday, the sales from last week as well as this week are in effect. Rumor has it that it's pretty busy on Wednesdays, but worth it if you're trying to shop the deals.
Something that I had heard about Sprouts is that they are known for their produce. HOLY COW THE PRODUCE. So fresh and so beautiful and an INCREDIBLE selection of organic stuff.
That was one thing that we found out when we got there, is that Sprouts is also known for having a pretty good selection of those niche dietary things like organic or GMO free or gluten free or dairy free and others. They've got it. TK and I have been talking about switching over to organic a little more than our barely organic lifestyle and while I'm a little nervous about what it will do to my grocery bill, I feel like Sprouts will help in that department when it comes to their prices on certain things.
Last but not least. Let me tell you about the gummi bears. I think this was the most life-changing bit of my whole evening. You see, Sprout's has TWELVE FLAVORS of gummi bears and they are incredible. They sell them in pre-packaged little containers, but it's definitely more fun to scoop out a bag (or in my case, a mason jar). Beyond the bulk gummi bears, Sprouts has ALL kinds of bulk things from sweets to grains to trail mix and more! I'll definitely be back to scope out these options.
I'm so excited to have a Sprouts close to our house. I've definitely grown to love bopping around to get everything I need for the week at various grocery stores and Sprouts is going to be a great addition to my routine!
Thank you to The Blog Guild and Sprouts for hosting such a fun event. I don't know who was more excited for the goodie bag, me or my husband! We'll definitely be back soon!
