Halloween, Snacks and More #StockUpSale

2014 disclosureI just got my sneak peak Acme Markets weekly ad in my inbox. I signed up a few months back so I didn’t miss out on any good deals if the circular didn’t make it to my mailbox. Especially right now during their #StockUpSale i don’t want to miss something that could really make a difference in my budget. I’m making my list on my MyMixx account right now so I don’t miss a thing.Acme Markets #StockUpSale
I don’t know if I should be revealing what’s on sale but I’m going to because that’s the friend that I am.
Jif Peanut Butter 15.5-16oz jars are just $.99. (that’s cheaper than the BIG jars at BJs wholesale)

Acme Markets #StockUpSale
This are the perfect size for care packages to college students and military family. Halloween is around the corner and if you have the will power that I don’t then it’s a great time to snag bags of Hershey’s Snack Size Candy for $8.99 or $7.99 when you buy 2. Two bags is plenty for our trick or treating night.Acme Markets #StockUpSale
The stock up sale is meant to put more in your fridge and pantry with less assault to your wallet. Acme Markets is the neighborhood store that stayed on course by providing quality food with helpful and knowledgeable customer service. Over 120 years later and 110 stores heavy they are a leader in our community from Philadelphia to Delaware and Maryland to New Jersey. I’ve lived in 3 of those states and have always had an Acme nearby.

For the Cookies, preheat oven to 350°F. Beat cake mix, water, cocoa powder, oil, food color, eggs and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed just until moistened, scraping sides of bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter, 2 inches apart, onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. (Cookies will spread so avoid crowding them on baking sheet.) .

Bake 8 minutes or until cookies are puffed and spring back when touched, turning baking sheets halfway through baking. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

For the Orange Filling, beat all ingredients in medium bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. To assemble the Whoopie Pies, place 1 tablespoon filling on flat side of 1 cookie. Top with a second cookie, pressing gently to spread the filling. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling. Store whoopie pies between layers of wax paper in airtight container in refrigerator up to 5 days.Black Velvet Whoopie Pies from McCormick #StockUpSale

Shopping #MyMixx app from Acme Markets

When you look through your grocery store ads each week how many MUST HAVE items do you see?  This past week during my weekly shopping trip and I found Eggo Waffles (box of ten) on sale for $1. There are always lots of things for $1 at Acme Markets but this is by far one of the best finds ever when scrolling through the MyMixx App.Acme Markets MyMixx

Eggo Waffles on sale Acme Markets #MyMixx

Waffles are a staple in our house much like bread and milk are in other homes. Waffles are eaten everyday by someone and are used for breakfast lunch and dinner.

The sale ad at Acme Market is a like a treasure hunt. I love sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and my list to put together everything we need. The new MyMixx app makes things even easier these days too. I don’t always have the time for a leisurely scan of the sale ad but now I have it at my finger tips when I’m not at home.Acme Markets MyMixx

Not only did I stock up on our go-to breakfast food I also snagged 12-count case of snapple for $5.99.  Rob and I love their Diet Raspberry and Diet Lemon tea and this price is too good to pass up.

Back to School happened for us this week too. I hit up the deli department and got lunchmeat for the next couple of weeks for just $3.99/lb.  I freeze lunchmeat and cheese so we always have it on hand and I’m not running to the store on Sunday night.Acme Markets Sale of the week #mymixx #sale

Find these and so many more great prices on the products you eat and use each day at Acme Markets.

If you follow Rob and I on Facebook or Instagram you’ll notice lots of food pics. We like to share what’s for dinner, where we’re eating out and even some food fails. Lately you’d notice lots of food being cooked on the smoker. For the first few months of using the smoker we made lots of pulled pork, ribs and chicken. I wanted to venture into beef but I wasn’t sure what to make. I was roaming the meat department when the Acme Markets Butcher asked if I needed help. We then had a long conversation about what meats work best with a long slow smoke.

This brought me to the famous brisket. It was the best piece of meat I’ve ever had. I’ve had brisket before but didn’t like it. This was amazing. The butcher gave me some tips and they definitely worked on our favor.Brisket cooked on smoker

This is the kind of service one expects from Acme.
