We do most of our shopping at Costco. Our rebate cheque is always generous and it’s a convenient way to ensure that our pantry is always stocked full with snacks, and our freezer is always stocked with meals ready to freeze.
But you can’t always get everything you need there. Sometimes, you need another option. In addition to Costco, we grab a few odds and ends that we might need weekly, but can’t find at Costco, from Spud.ca.
Over the past months that I’ve been a Spud Ambassador I’ve had the chance to try many of the delicious foods that you can get – but here are some of my favorite foods (and some of my best values) that you can get from Spud, and have delivered to your door.
Most recently, we’ve tried the Gold Forest Grains oats, and made a pecan granola that’s stashed away and ready to be eaten while we’re out adventuring this weekend. Wondering what else we’ve tried and loved? Here are a few of my go-to’s:
Fresh Herbs + Milk
These two staples are something that we get on a weekly basis (unless it’s a week that the kids are boycotting milk). Both of these items are the same price or less than we would pay for a quick trip to the store, so it saves me a trip.
The Frozen Mac and Cheese
Most of the time, dinner is my nemesis. Lunch time is where I shine, and in the summer we’re too busy playing to make dinner anyway. The frozen mac and cheese is around $17 (the same price range we pay for a convenience meal from Costco) and there’s always leftovers for the next day after our family of four is done eating. I like the fact that I can pair it with veggies, grab some meatballs or something from the freezer and call it a meal.
These were some of the first veggies that we got from Spud, last year – and they’re also some of my favorite things to eat. The bright colored veggies add a little bit of special to your plate and they’re delicious raw or cut and sliced into carrot fries.
The Jackie is my bar of choice, but the local chocolate is one of my favorite things whether I’m making a Spud order for the week, or I’m picking up a couple of groceries at Save on Foods and they’ve got the chocolate bars there tempting me in the checkout line. I stash one away for those emergency parenting, must-have chocolate now moments.
Weekly Fresh Harvest Box
Organic produce, delivered weekly, in a box that contains a mix of fruits and vegetables to get you through the week. There’s always enough veggies to have dinner sides + snacks, and it’s seasonal to keep the price affordable. It’s under $50, and delivered for free. You can’t get much better than that.
