Since I was kinda/sorta headed in that direction anyway…stopped in at the Melrose Park Fannie May warehouse. Here’s a couple of pictures. The first one is rows upon rows of Pixes. The 12.5 oz boxes were selling for $3.99! The spring Mint Meltaways were also cheap at $4.99/lb. I picked up a couple of fudge/pecan eggs for $1.99 each. They had tons of 3 lb trays of most of the Fannie May assortments: Mint Meltaways; Pixies; Trinidads. You name it, it was probably here in tray size. Most trays were marked $19.99, but the dark chocolate/expresso creams were only $9.98. They also had a large selection of other branded items: jars of olives; black pepper crackers; decorative metal and woven baskets; fruit toppings; popcorns…lots and lots of stuff.
The box on the left is $22.99 at Fannie May; the one on the right is $4.99. Buy a shitload of them and you have solved your year-end teachers/aides/health professionals/bus drivers… gift-giving dilemma. So unless gas goes up to $17 a gallon, you’re still ahead.
