Nestle's Deal

The Nestle's 75th Anniversary Tins were lovely to look at and held two bags of chocolate chips, 12 ounce and 8 ounces bags I believe. They were $5.98, too rich for my blood.

However, when the price came down to $3, I was hooked. I paid $3, got 20 oz. of chocolate chips, a tin, and a $1.50 coupon....YAY! I spent the coupon on a $2.50 package of chocolate chip cookie dough with the coupon. My final cost was $1.00 on the cookies. Total spent was $3.50. I put the chips in a Ball canning jar and eat a few at a time once a day if I think of it. So, I put it in a cabinet where I cannot see chocolate.

If you have not seen the tin,  LOOK at the picture 1st Man took of his tin.

Thanks to slugmama, I changed Hershey to Nestlé's.

Your turn
Did you see the tins or find them reduced at Walmart?

  3. You know I love most things American, but I really can't get into American chocolate. Actually I'm not that keen on British chocolate either. Give me chocolate from Belgium any day!

    Of course, Belgium chocolate is better! However, I grew up with this stuff, so it tastes great to me. I can tell the difference in Hershey and the good and expensive stuff. Thanks for your perspective.

  5. Nice bargain. Almost tempted to go to Walmart, but it's a bit of a drive for me...and I still have 1/2 price Kisses from after-Christmas...still, it is a nice tin...decisions, decisions.

    1. Sue,
      They may have marked it down and sold it all like they did here. They had it Monday, but not today. I managed to get four cans, one for my daughter and the others stored in canning jars.

    1. Cherdo,
      That is what I say several times each day if they are in sight. They re behind closed doors right now, but I can hear them calling my name.

    1. slugmama,
      Thanks so much for telling me. Sometimes, I see a huge mistake with my math or something and wonder why no one told me. That embarrasses me. sigh...I am blushing from the Nestlé's mixup in my mind. But, I would rather be corrected than go along in ignorance.

      So, did you get a tin?

    2. No I left them on the shelf. I still have lots of choccie chips in the stockpile. We don't make cookies like we use to when the kids were home. ;-)
      The tin was nice but if it had a coupon inside I can't use it to buy more tins at Ollie's as they don't accept coupons. The tin would just be clutter for me.

    3. I will put something in the tin to control clutter. I don't use tins to decorate. I have extra, unopened spices that keep leaping off the shelf and right in my face that skitter off the counter to the floor. They will probably go in the tin. I sent one to my daughter who loves tins and has two kids who love chocolate. Using $1.50 coupon to buy the next tin makes it all so cheap.
