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.
