Nancy-

Grocery stores make the final pricing decisions. We are seeing the same rising pricing information that you are.

We refresh our coupons monthly so you can save on all your favorite Nestle products.

I'll take this opportunity to say Thanks So Much for the coupons.  We appreciate them !!.

When I'm grocery shopping and see someone buying chocolate chips I tell them about this site and how to get the coupons.

Hey guys,
 Glad the site is working well without too many losses
. We all made it through after some upset and it now appears to be a pretty good site upgrade. Good job. Thank Nestle's and ask if they can coupon us any more so we will keep baking to our hearts delight. Thanks

NancyG, I read an article a while back that said chocolate candy bars could reach as much as I believe, $7 each in a few years.

I am looking for two recipes, I had a Very best baking book from the late 70's. I recently had it thrown out by accident. I am looking for recipes for Two Tone Bites-butterscotch and semi sweet chocolate bites and Australian Squares. I made these for Christmas and Special occasions and they were a big hit. If anyone has the recipes I would be very greatful thanks. Chuck C.
