I went to buy some vegan "Macaroni and Cheese" at Stop & Shop a few weeks ago...the sale sticker was misplaced, so I got the item for free.

Macaroni and "Chreese": $0.00

Most expensive: Better than Bouillon Vegetable Stock $5.59 (which I figured out was the equivalent of 22 cans of vegetable stock and there's no way in the world I'll ever find cans of vegetable stock for $0.25 a peice), this was WAY cheaper!

Least expensive: Well, it was a 5 pk of gum; $0.30, after that the cheapest thing that was actually food was a can of pinto beans at $0.57.
