It’s a time for getting together outside, barbecuing with friends and family, eating tasty treats and enjoying yourself as much as you are able. People tend to eat lighter in the summer as well, so snacking and finger foods for the whole family are more imperative. Perhaps no other retailer offers better deals on summer grocery items than Walmart. Here are eight unbeatable deals.

Great Value Family Variety Pack of Chips, 18 Count

Price: $5.48

Summer snacking wouldn’t be complete without grab and go chips, easy to send with a kid to summer camp, or have on hand for your family BBQ. At other grocery stores like Safeway, or big-box stores like Target, you’ll pay twice as much for the variety pack of name-brand versions of Walmart’s own Great Value brand of snack-sized chips.

It just wouldn’t be summer without iced tea for many folks. That classic flavor can instantly bring soothing refreshment to a hot afternoon. Walmart’s Great Value sugar-free iced tea with lemon makes 12 quarts for less than the price of an individual cup almost anywhere you can get one.

Dr. Thunder Soda, 24 Pack Cans

Price: $5.46

Chicken Thighs

Price: $7.27

Ready to break out your grill? If you’ve got more than a few mouths to feed, you’ll appreciate Walmart’s deal on chicken thighs. A family pack of Sanderson Farms fresh chicken thighs, between 5 and 6 lbs. of chicken meat, is a remarkable $7.27.

Impossible Burger Patties, 2 Count

Price: $4.97

Whether you’re vegetarian or just trying to cut back on how much meat you consume, Impossible Burger has cornered the market on their beef-like meat substitute that is so convincing, some meat lovers can’t even tell the difference.
