have you seen hot cocoa anywhere for less than $1 a package? i would think now that holidays are almost over they’d be on sale, but no luck here yet. Thanks for a great blog!

Hi Helena,
I’m not sure what Walmart has hot cocoa priced at, but I checked a few local grocery store ads and the best deal I saw this week was at Shoppers for the Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Powder 10-ct for $1.25. Buy 2 and use $0.50/2* coupon from the 11/13/11 SmartSource insert (expires 12/31/11)
Final Price: $0.75 each wyb 2
I used to see a lot of $1 sales on Hot Cocoa but haven’t seen it lately. You can always try the store generic brand or try making your own like this one from AllRecipes.com. Now I’m in the mood to make some hot cocoa :)
