BETTY CROCKER COOKIE MIX
For bakers who prefer the convenience of a store-bought mix, both Dollar Tree and Walmart sell Betty Crocker brand chocolate chip cookie mix. At first glance, Dollar Tree’s version seems a better deal. Priced at $1, it’s about half the cost of the $1.98 Walmart charges. But the price-per-ounce advantage goes to Walmart. Its 17.5-ounce pouch costs about 11.3 cents an ounce, while Dollar Tree’s price is 13 cents an ounce, a 13 percent savings.
