Wegmans Trip On Easter

To me, easter is pretty much just like any other sunday, except stores I like going to are closed. That part irks me. This easter weekend was absolutely gorgeous, and after a nice long bike ride, I took a little outing to Wegmans because they were open! I got to stock on some of my faves, the blood orange soda and blueberry cereal. But I also just like to go and see what’s up. These breads with W’s on them are rather cute.

They really do have quite an array of fresh prepared foods. Their little cafe area has tons of already cooked stuff and beer to go. It’s like a little food court, along with a restaurant. But what I really like is the amount of food they have that’s prepared already, with flavoring and seasoning and what not, that just needs to be taken home and cooked. Even the veggies have been cut up and cleaned for you. It’s like cooking, but only part way. All the annoying prep part is already done. They have fish and seafood, chicken, and meat options all ready to go.

Sometimes they have stuff I can’t find elsewhere. I love radiatore, and you can find them here, but they’re called nuggets. But I find Wegmans a bit strange because they have so much non-food stuffs as well. Most grocery stores have tons of toiletries and cleaning products and what not, but Wegmans has more than others. It’s almost like they’re trying to compete with the Wal-Marts or Targets with groceries in them, instead of regular grocery stores. The amount of square footage dedicated to non-food boggles my mind. It’s like they have a bit of an identity crisis. But I don’t mind. I bought some really nice and cheap toothbrushes while I was there. This girl isn’t going to complain.

They have the Tiger Tiger sauces here too. Since the little spice shop in the Ardmore Farmers Market closed down, I would have had to go to world market to get this. I’m glad I don’t have to anymore.

They have a variety of fresh naan here too, which is totally cool.

The prices here sometimes good, sometimes bad, and pretty much just averages out. But I find the quality of their food to be high, and everything at least seems fresh. But 99 cents for a lemon or a lime? And they’re not even organic? I don’t think so!
The blood orange soda at Wegmans is something I love. The version sold at Target sucks. I picked up the above version at Trader Joe’s the other day and it’s just as good as the Wegmans one! It’s a perfect substitute!
