Aunt Millie’s Bakery Outlet was not our destination today when we started out. A few weeks ago, I did a post about Aunt Millie’s bread which I found at Kroger. In that post, I stated the only thing I didn’t like was the price, but that was before I found the bread at Horrocks. Frequent commentor Ang told me there was a Bakery Outlet on Grand River. When I did a Google search to find the store, another business popped up just a few blocks away. There wasn’t much info on it, but there was a place called Aunt Millie’s Deli Diner located at 6086 W. Grand River. I had J put Aunt Millie’s in her GPS to get there from Horrocks and again, a business called Aunt Millie’s Deli Diner showed up. When we got to the spot it claimed to be, there was nothing but empty land. I thought maybe the GPS was a little off and got East or West confused, so we kept driving. Our drive brought us to Aunt Millie’s Bakery Outlet, so we stopped in to see what it had to offer.
Aunt Millie’s Bakery Outlet isn’t fancy. It’s a small room attached to the administration offices. The store is stocked with all of Aunt Millie’s products. The shelves are nothing more than bread racks. Since we had just stopped at Horrocks, we didn’t really need any bread, but I wanted to look. We’ve been buying wheat pitas and making home made pita chips. We picked up two packages at Horrocks, but if they had them cheap here, I cold always use more.
The prices were ridiculously low. Packages of buns were under $1 and bread wasn’t much more expensive. We didn’t end up buying anything because the only pitas they had were white bread and, like I already mentioned, we didn’t really need anything. I probably should have picked up some bread and froze it, but we’re out that way enough it shouldn’t be that big of a deal.
Great suggestions from one of the readers of this blog and something I never would have found on my own. I’m really glad I picked up that bread of Aunt Millie’s that day at Kroger and it’s great to know that there’s a cheaper option right here in Lansing.
