Grocery Hunt: Taking the Keto Challenge

Sign Up For Our FREE Daily eNews!

Hello! Welcome to Week 15 of the Grocery Hunt, Manchester Ink Link’s guide to Manchester-area grocery stores.

Normally, we ask our readers to give us five specific grocery items and five separate Manchester-area grocery stores so we could find the prices and availability of those items.

This week, we’re going with five keto-friendly items recommended by one reader: Tammy Simmons.

We’re also tracking the prices and availability of each item week by week with the hopes of finding the local grocery store with the best prices and best availability for items that our readers are looking for.

Before we begin, here are some caveats.

  • All prices were checked on Tuesday, April 13 from approximately 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Prices and item availability may change without notice.
  • Items may have been available during the aforementioned time but could not be found. Within this column, all efforts available to an ordinary grocery shopper were made to find the item. If you see an error here, please e-mail a picture of the item and the price tag to andy@manchesterinklink.com
  • Unless asked for a specifically-sized item by a reader, situations where stores have different sizes of the exact same item will be compared by weight or volume. If stores have multiple sizes of that item, the average cost per weight or volume will be used. Averaged prices are rounded to nearest cent.
