Alert reader Maria dropped by the Want Not Facebook page to let me know that she ordered this 4-pack of Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix from Amazon for under $6. (It’s currently priced at $5.36; buy it via Subscribe & Save for free shipping and an additional discount.) She says she was concerned it was a labeling error and she’d only get one canister, but it was, indeed, four! (A quick check shows that other flavors of these Golden Malted batter mixes tend to run about $19 for 4.) At this price you’re basically paying less than it costs them to ship it to you.
I make my own pancake mix, because I’m a hippie and because I’m gluten-free, but at this price I could see where this would be handy to have in the pantry (or to buy to donate to local food bank). Thanks, Maria!
