Fleischmann's Instant Yeast at Sam's Club, $5 for 2 pounds!

Two vacuum packed  cubes, shrink-wrapped together.

B.C (Before Covid), Fleischmann's Instant Red Star Yeast was available at SC, 2 pounds, $5.  Just as I was running low on my initial purchase of 2 lbs., Covid hit, and yeast doubled and tripled in price, when you could find it.  Yesterday I was at the Kingston, NY SC, and it was back at the old price.  Limit one, of course, but unless you're baking commercially or for a big family, that could last as much as a year.  I keep mine in the freezer except for a working amount in one of those brown glass yeast bottles in the fridge. Of such small victories comes the delight that gets you through the day.

Glad to see it's back, thanks for posting. 

I have a business account with them, so shipping is free for me. It's come in really handy this year.
