I think I heard that warning on Rachael Ray.

Great information!

Your welcome I found it very informative myself and also I put another under another title but a lot of the EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) isn't always pure , it has other oils in it such as vegetable oil and yes EVEN PEANUT OIL!!!!!!!!!!!! and the woman said they don't list it being in there so if you have a peanut allergy THAT IS BAD NEWS!!!!!
She said to make sure that also has one of those certified numbers on the label that proves it's 100% virgin olive oil with no other fillers...
Also you might go to the deli and buy the like sharp cheddar and pay $6.50 lb, she said to go to the dairy spot near the cottage cheese sometimes you can get it there for like half price , she said cheddar is cheddar you paying for the brand only...

Thanks for the info. And honestly, I prefer my honey pasteurized. I don't want to risk any random diseases because I ate raw food. I guess I don't eat honey for antioxidants.

Great info. I never thought about the water weight for the "clean" veggies. Those tricksters!!! Actually, I paid $4.00 for one small bundle (8 each) of green onion the other day. Should have been $0.50 total. Self-checkout asked how many I had, so I put in 8, but it meant how many bundles. Realized it in the car when I though it was ridiculous that I had to count them out. Duh.

Another problem I run across is serving size. For example, campbells microwave soup containers are actually 2 servings, so you have to double all the nutrition info. Who the heck would eat only a half of soup? So, on hte front it says "only 120 calories per serving" and then you look on the back and there are two servings in that little cup.

thanks for the info

I get everything but 10OZ WOULD BE THE BETTER BUY THAN THE 8 OZ BAG OF CHIPS

Regardless of the # of chips...doesn't weight indicate more product. What's making up the extra 2 oz....salt and oil?

CHECK YOUR LABELS GOOD!!!!!!
WHEN YOUR BUYING TOMATOES IN A CAN AND IT SAYS IT'S FROM ITALY IT'S SUPPOSE TO HAVE A CERTIFICATION NUMBER TO PROVE IT IS, THEY ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THEN REGULAR DOMESTIC TOMATOES AND SOMETIMES THEY JUST MISLEAD YOU BUY PUTTING AN ITALIAN NAME ON THE LABEL.

WHEN BUYING PAPER TOWELS DON'T JUST GO BY THE PACKAGING, A ROLL THAT SAYS THAT IT MIGHT BE 33% MORE THEN ANOTHER AND SAYS IT HAS 120 SHEETS WHILE THE OTHER ONE SAYS 80 SHEETS MIGHT LOOK LIKE THE BETTER BUY BUT YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE SMALL PRINT AND SEE THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE TOWELS, ON RACHAEL RAY THEY ACTUALLY OPENED UP THE PACKAGES AND THE ONE THAT ONLY SAID IT HAD 80 SHEETS ACTUALLY WAS THE BETTER BUY BECAUSE OF THE FOOTAGE.

WHEN BUYING HONEY AT THE STORE ANYTHING THAT COMES IN A SQUEEZE BOTTLE HAS BEEN FILTERED AND PASTEURIZED , YOU NEED TO BUY HONEY IN THE JAR THAT SAYS RAW/UNFILTERED THAT'S THE ONE THAT IS REALLY GOOD FOR YOU AND HAS THE ANTIOXIDANTS YOU WANT.

EVEN WHEN IT COMES TO CHIPS ONE BAG MIGHT SAY IT HAS 10 OZ VS ONE THAT SAYS 8 OZ YOU'D THINK THAT THE 10OZ WOULD BE THE BETTER BUY, BUT YOU HAVE TO GO BUY HOW MANY PORTIONS IN IT, THE 8 OZ BAG ACTUALLY HAD 30 MORE CHIPS THEN THE OTHER.

LOOK FOR DIMPLES UNDER THE PEANUT BUTTER JARS IT WILL GIVE YOU 3 OZ LESS THEN THE JAR THAT HAS NO DIMPLE AT THE BOTTOM.

THE BEST WAY TO GET REAL LEMON JUICE IS FROM A REAL LEMON, THEY HAD ON RACHAEL RAYS SHOW A CONTAINER THAT SAID 100% REAL LEMON JUICE AND MIXED IT WITH BAKING SODA AND ANOTHER INGREDIENT, WHEN SHE PUT THE JUICE IN FROM THE BOTTLE IT DIDN'T BUBBLE (IT'S SUPPOSE TO BUBBLE CAUSE OF THE ACID IN IT) WHEN SHE CUT OPEN A REAL LEMON IT BUBBLED.

THE SHOW WAS VERY INFORMATIVE... SO KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AT THE GROCERY STORE , OH AND WHEN YOUR BUYING YOUR FRESH VEGGIES THEY SAID TO STAY AWAY FROM THE ONES THAT ARE GETTING SPRAYED BY WATER.
SHE HAD SHOWED A DRY VEGGIE LIKE A BUNCH OF KALE AND THEN WET IT FROM THE SPRINKLERS THEY HAVE AT THE STORE TO KEEP IT FRESH, IT ADDED A HALF POUND TO IT, THAT'S A HALF POUND YOUR PAYING FOR AND NOT GETTING IT'S JUST THAT THE VEGGIE IS WET HAHAHAHA
