Compare at the Groceries: Cereal

See how cereal prices compare at area groceries.

Andover residents have more than one option when it comes to groceries and Andover Patch thought it would be beneficial to note how the prices compare at the different locations, week to week.

Each Tuesday Andover Patch will feature the prices on basic items from Stop and Shop, Market Basket and Whole Foods. This week we featured the prices of several different cereals.

Store Wheaties, 15.6 oz.
Frosted Mini-Wheats, 18 oz.
Cheereo's, 14 oz.
Rice Krispies, 12 oz.
Honey Bunches of Oats, 14.5 oz.
Captain Crunch, 12.5 oz.  Market Basket $3.99 2/$6 2/$6 $2.99 2/$6 $2.50 $4.29 $3.49 $3.39 $3.79 $3.29 $3.39 * $3.99 $2.79 $3.99 $3.99 $3.49 $3.69

*These are prices of the cereals' counterparts in Whole Food's "Oraganic 360" brand. Boxes of similar weights were used.

Not a problem, Julia. Feel free to let us know what food items we should focus on in our future grocery comparison articles.

When Market Basket says "you get more for your dollar at Market Basket," they're not kidding. Their prices are ALWAYS alot lower than Stop & Shop and Whole Foods. When Stop & Shop has a sale, they might come close to Market Basket's every day price. And that's why I always have--and always will--make Market Basket my "go to" grocery store. P.S. I am NOT a Market Basket employee, if that's what anyone's thinking.
