June is National Dairy Month, and that means special deals on dairy section items at Weis Markets. The grocer said it will promote June sales on dairy items in weekly circulars and online at WeisMarkets.com.

Consumers can compete for more than $5,000 worth of Weis Markets gift cards by submitting favorite personal recipes. Any type of food is fair game: dips, desserts, milkshakes, omelets or other dishes, as long as they contain at least three items found in the dairy section.

A spokesman for Weis Markets said Thursday that the company plans to invest "several million dollars" - and employ as many as 150 people - as it refurbishes and moves into the former Superfresh space at Towson Place shopping center.

What it is -- A "pounder" bag of tortilla chips with whole grains. What we like about it --If we're snacking with abandon on Super Bowl Sunday, we might as well squeeze in something good -- especially if we're not apt to notice it. These chips provide 8 grams of whole grains per 1-ounce serving. (Government dietary guidelines recommend we get 48 grams each day.) The chips have no trans fat or saturated fat, and they're flavorful and sturdy enough to hold dip. What it costs --$3.49 Where to buy --Available at Mars, Super Fresh and Weis markets.
