I just moved from Miami two weeks ago and one of the few things I miss about that place is Publix. I went to Kroger and its not bad but Publix has better baked goods (and a little cheaper too). I have not tried Heb yet because my friend who lives in San Antonio says they are horrible. Since moving here some other people have told me the HEBs reflect the area they are in and that good neighborhoods will have good HEBs and bad neighborhoods will have bad ones. So, I will try a HEB eventually. By the way. What does H.E.B. stand for? I was just pronouncing it as one word before.

We have Publix back in Ga and it was nice but at least there it was more expensive so we always shopped Krogers. Now that we live here we shop mainly WM and Target. Mostly Wm though and every now and then Kroger for quick trips.

Randalls has significantly lowered their prices and the one in Clear Lake has the best fruit and vegetables!
