Whether you have kids or are a kid at heart yourself, freezer pops are a summer must-have. Choose from an eight-count pack of Tampico Freezer Pops or a 24-count pack of Fun Pops, priced at $1.25.
You can’t have a summer party without tortilla chips. Choose from several El Sabroso varieties, including Baja Limón, Salsitas Salsa Chips and Original Guacachip, which offer so much flavor, there’s no need to pair them with dip.
The warmest months of the year have arrived, so it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated. Choose from several different styles of water bottles to refill throughout the day.
Pitchers and Ice Cube Trays
Get a two-quart pitcher or a two-pack of ice cube trays for just $1.25. This is essential to hold your summer lemonade and keep it cold.
Summer is the season of grilling, so now is the time to purchase essentials you don’t already have. Choose from spatulas, tongs, bamboo skewers, reusable condiment dispensers, corn cob holders, deli baskets, grill brushes and scrapers and more.
When hosting a summer party, the fewer dishes you have to wash, the better. Get napkins, paper towels, paper plates, foam plates, foam bowls and plastic cups at a bargain price.
Barbecue Condiments, Seasonings and Sides
Meat might be the main event of your barbecue, but you’ll need many supporting acts to please the whole crowd. Fill your pantry with all the condiments, the right seasonings and delicious sides — i.e., cans of baked beans — to ensure there’s something for everyone.
Inflatable Swim Toys and Pool Noodles
Whether you have a pool, pool membership or a friend with a pool, you need inflatable swim toys and pool noodles to keep your kids entertained. Buy everyone their own and some extras at this affordable price.
