They are on sale for $1 each, a great price. You can get an even better deal if you combine your newspaper coupons. I found a 75 cents off 2 in the Aug 2nd Red Plum that came with the newspaper. 2 rice sides for $1.25 is great. There is also a 50 cents off 2 coupon in the All You magazine. Go get 'em!
I also jumped over to letsmakeknorr.com and signed up for their newsletter, samples, coupons and offers. They have recipes too, so I'll have to check them out.
