Food Club Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls - $2.89

I love store brands.  I feel like they’re my little secret, like I’m getting a deal that no one else knows about.  

I started buying store brands several years ago when we were broke broke.  I realized that packaging was usually the major difference between a store brand a name brand.

This week I’m showing you the goodness of Food Club Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls.

My 8 yr old daughter makes the cinnamon rolls every Sunday, so that tells you about the ease of making them.  If Ella can’t do it, I’m not buying it.

The icing comes in a squeezable pouch, so your daughter can squeeze it all onto one roll, then try and fix it.

She did a pretty good job.  There’s plenty of icing for each roll, and the rolls are big.  My husband inhales 2, Ella and I each have 1 and share the last one.  Plenty for 3.

You can see how they puff up.  And they’re quick, so that kid will have plenty of time to make my breakfast and fix that crazy hair.

This wine is terrible. I know it’s only a $12 grocery store wine, but still…It tastes like slightly grape alcohol. I didn’t even finish the bottle, and if you know me, that’s bad. 
 Use your $12 to get a 2 - 12 packs of Schlitz instead.
