Alert: Pesto Sale at Whole Foods!


I used to make my own pesto until I tasted Seggiano Raw Basil Pesto.  It’s absolutely the best pesto I’ve ever tasted, and it’s dairy-free.  Note: I didn’t say it was the best non-dairy pesto I’ve ever tasted.  I said it was the best pesto, and it happens to be dairy-free.  It’s expensive at $11.99 for 7 oz, but it’s on sale at Whole Foods for $8.99 until 12/25/12 (at least in NYC).  I would suggest you pick some up now if you are so inclined.  This price can’t be beat.

In 2010 (check my blog), it was on sale for $9.99 a jar, but you could get the 10% case discount on top of that if you bought enough.  It’s my understanding that they did away with the case discount for sale items, but with the $8.99, it works out the same and you don’t have to buy a case to maximize your savings (although I’ve bought a case and a half so far).  Also, the expiration date on the jars I just bought is in 2014, and I’ve been buying this for years and it’s never tasted stale, even after being in the cabinet for a year.  It doesn’t need to be refrigerated until you open it, and it lasts in the refrigerator for weeks.  Lastly, it is in a glass jar and it specifically says it is unpasteurized.  Hooray!  I admit to being confounded by its perfection.
