  •  If you're after calories only, bakery thrift (7+ / 0-)

    stores are your friend. As a kid we bought "racks" there (to feed livestock) for $2. Three of those would fill a half-ton pickup above bedrail level. Cookies, snack cakes, loaves of bread, muffins, fried pies.

    You can still get 4 fried pies for $2 at most of the bakery thrift stores. Those same pies at Wal-Mart go for $1.09 each; at 7-Eleven they're $1.99. The quality is not that different -- they pull things off store shelves a day or to before the sell-by date.
