Best Price for Frozen Fruit (Karrie’s Research)

Price compared frozen bags of fruit from 6 different stores to find out where the best price for frozen fruit are. Smoothies here I come.

It’s time for another price comparison research project. This time I was trying to find the best price on frozen fruit. I am hoping these projects help you know where the best prices are!

Ever since I bought my Vitamix blender last year I have been making smoothies almost every day. My favorite is my green smoothie recipe, but I have made lots of others too. Because of my smoothie love, I am constantly buying frozen fruit. This year I thought it would save me money to freeze some fruit myself. I found out that it was a better deal for me to freeze my peaches, but not the blueberries. I could have purchased the blueberries already frozen for less money.

I gathered prices from Costco, Walmart, Target, Fred Meyer, Winco and Cash n Carry (a restaurant supply store). Then typed them up on a spreadsheet, compared prices and figured out where the best deals were for as many frozen fruit varieties I could find.

Here are the results.

I also created a spreadsheet you can view that shows regular price, brands, the price per bag, and gallon size of bags from the 6 stores.  Feel free to print this out, and keep it in your purse/wallet as a reference guide.

You have two options to view this list:

  • View in Google Docs
  • For printable version: from Google Docs Click File, Download As, choose PDF and export to your computer
  • There are four tabs at the bottom, make sure and check each tab as there is useful information in each one.

Did you notice that the majority of the time Costco is the winner?? Yep, they have some amazing prices on frozen fruit.

Strawberries, Pineapple, and Blueberries came in at the lowest prices at Costco. In fact I am amazed because a u-pick blueberry farm this year in my area had prices at $3.00 per lb. At Costco it is only $2.20 per lb. — that is less than I would pay locally. I am just shocked.

Hope you enjoyed this research project. And hope it saves you time and money.

  1. Great post! My little brother just moved in with us and has been making smoothies every morning before basketball practice so fruit is at a premium right now. Nice to know that what I thought about Costco is true. 🙂

  2. Wow…will you shop for my car for me??!!! 🙂

    Many blessings to you for all of your very interesting work!!!

  3. I haven’t checked yet but I’m curious about Azure Standard’s prices? Thank you for this list! I will for sure be using it!

  4. the Costco strawberries are so full of taste – much better than Walmart’s

  5. Thanks for the post. Will definitely need to compare it to local prices. Luckily we are able to grow blackberries so I have been freezing (and canned a couple of jars) of them. Will definitely use this information for all the other berries that are available.

  6. Thank you thank you thank you!!! I am a college student and am on a very strict budget. I can’t tell you how long I have been running around trying to save receipts and price check everything so this is extremely helpful!!!

  7. This really comes in handy, thanks for sharing. I wish there was a costco nearby. Im going to check BJs and Samsclub to see their prices.

  8. For anyone who has a Trader Joe’s, the prices are even lower, at least for the ones I checked – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, both regular and organic. I thought Walmart might be cheaper, but nope. I keep a list of everything I buy and compare at the various stores. I always feel conspicuous walking around the store with my little notebook.

  9. I am in love with the fact that you are in my area so everything you post is from my stores. Thank you so much!
