I learned about this INCREDIBLE deal on baking chips today, and I wanted to be sure to let you know about it, too.
Here's the scoop:
Right now, The Prepared Pantry’s 30 oz. chocolate mint chips are buy one, get one free, plus free shipping! That’s 60 oz.—just under 4 pounds—of gourmet, good quality chocolate mint chips (not the cheap fake stuff) for $12.99 SHIPPED! You'll find the deal here http://www.preparedpantry.com/
BTW, when I spoke with their customer service department this afternoon, I learned that the mint chips are selling REALLY quickly, so be sure to take advantage of this offer as soon as possible to beat the sell-out!
The rep (who, by the way, was VERY nice and helpful!) told me that they're overstocked and need to get these out before the weather gets too hot to ship chocolate. The only deal I’ve found online that’s even close is a 10-oz. Hershey’s bag for $3.99, but their 11-oz bag is cheaper than that right now too.
It’s really hard to even find chocolate mint chips right now anyway, because Hershey’s and grocery stores usually don’t carry them except during the holidays. So, not only are these chips rare, but they’re super cheap, too.
I can think of a bunch of recipes I have that call for regular chocolate chips that I'd like to substitute these mint chips for... like my sweet brownie cookies!
Incidentally, if you're not a fan of mint, they have a great deal on ALL of their baking chips. Semi sweet, cinnamon, white chocolate... tons of choices!
