I finally got around to buying candy-coated chocolate covered peanuts from the bulk section at Fairway-- because even paper bags of M&Ms are coated with plastic on the inside.
SunSpire Peanut Sundrops: $9.49/lb.
Peanut M&Ms: about $6.72/lb.
Buying food from the bulk section is often less expensive than packaged equivalents, but not always!
Although I shouldn't be too upset with the price difference. In addition to coming without plastic, the SunSpire candies "contain no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Their bright candy color comes from beet juice, beta carotene and natural caramel. Their yummy chocolate centers are made with rich milk chocolate, sweetened with evaporated cane juice and a touch of unsulphered molasses."
I can live with that. I guess.
