Overripe bananas at 58 cents a pound isn't much of a saving when Stop&Shop and the 206 Farmers Market are selling regular bananas for 59 cents, and Trader Joe's sells them for 19 cents a pound (a large banana weighs about a half pound) or less than 40 cents a pound.

I've seen something similar at our local health food store but am skeptical about buying because I don't know how long they've been in storage. Once the apples are "bruised", the nutrients have deteriorated.

58 cents for the package! Now when I took a closer look I saw that the price per pound was half of 79 cents, which makes a big difference, even if you have to do a bit of trimming.

That is a tremendous amount of plastic packaging. Wouldn't it make sense to discourage the practice by giving your money to stores that don't participate in that sort of nonsense?

The apples were $.82 per pound, $.79 a pound for fresh ones at the farmer's market. What Monty didn't tell you is that his cheapo bananas were $.27 per pound. We also got a white acorn squash for $.45 per pound. Matilda- not nearly as much packaging as the junk food everyone else is buying and we use our Eat For Health shopping bag to pack them in.
