I have to admit, WinCo is not my first choice of places to shop. However, when it comes to saving money or buying bulk food items (nuts, special ingredients for recipes, etc), it's a winner!
The other day I needed several ingredients for some cookies--- walnuts, coconuts, etc. I went to WinCo so I could get a small amount and hopefully save some money. The prices there were less than 1/2 as much as at the grocery store, and I was able to get exactly how much I needed for the recipe! There selection of bulk foods is quite amazing! All kinds of nuts, cereals, spices, and like I said, special ingredients--- sweetened coconut, turbinado sugar, etc! it's slightly awe-inspring, actually! I always end up spending 1/2 hour just wandering around gawking at their selection!
There other grocery items are all slightly less than your average grocer, as well. But the real bargain is in the bulk!
