Clearance-hunting at Jewel-Osco: .37 HFCS-free freezer pops, .25 grill tools and more

My mom was at my Huntley Jewel-Osco, and she called me and said "You should come over to your Jewel."

Well, I always appreciate a heads-up when something good's going on! Having a friend or family member spotting sales for you is always helpful too. What was her deal of the day?

My Jewel store had several freezer cases filled with clearance freezer pops! There were several different kinds at great prices, which I'll get to in a moment. What caught Mom's eye were these Jel Sert freezer pops. 10ct. boxes were on clearance for .37, and Mom found two different varieties made with sugar, not high-fructose corn syrup. (It's very difficult to find freezer pops that don't have HFCS!) The varieties that are made with sugar are:

Angry Birds and Sunkist. Check it out:

What a great price. My boys were very excited about today's after-school snack!

My Jewel also had other freezer pops on sale. These Tampico freezer pops are .29! (They do contain HFCS.)

If you're not avoiding HFCS, these Pop-Ice freezer pops blow away the other two deals! A 100-count (!) box is on clearance for $1.24, and each box contains a $1.50 mail-in rebate! The on-box rebate form is good through 12/31/18. They're a moneymaker after rebate, not including your stamp!

There were other great deals around the store. Grill tools were a crazy-cheap .25 each!
