What do y'all think of the grill box special, the one with the cheddar brats & hot dogs? Am I just adding it up all wrong, or is that a REALLY bad deal? I am going to have to price that one out at the store. When I saw cheddar brats, I was just about to order the box right now to be sure to get some of them. Then I started adding it up in my head--- I'm just not sure if it's a deal or not. Has anyone priced that one out yet?
I wasn't sure either, so I checked the prices at the Safeway website for similar items.
Right now, a pound of Ball Park beef hot dogs is $6.59! Hebrew National all-beef franks are even more! Remember, the Angel Food ones are listed as all-beef ones, so you have to compare similar kinds. Hot dogs made from pork and chicken would be cheaper, but they're different than what's in the box.
Cheddar-brats and Italian sausage that are similar in package size to the ones in the AFM box are around $4.49-4.99 each.
2 pkg. Cheddar-brats - $4.49(2) = $8.98
2 pkg. Italian sausage links - $4.49(2) = $8.98
2 pkg. beef hot dogs - $6.59(2) = $13.18
8.98 + 8.98 + 13.18 = $31.14
AFM Gourmet Griller Box = $28
Granted, you might be able to find coupons for some of the sausages or hot dogs, and maybe you'd rather get the pork-chicken hot dogs instead of dealing with the price of beef hot dogs... if you work at it, you could probably get similar items for less than the AFM box. But without any sales or other discounts, the AFM box is cheaper.
