Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I have a fantastic recipe for sugar cookies using frozen pink lemonade in the dough and the icing.

I cannot find frozen pink lemonade anywhere. ShopRite used to sell it in Vineland, but no more. Any chance it is still available anywhere? Thank you for your help. — Joan Shaw

Dear Joan: According to Walmart’s website, you can purchase, in store only, Great Value Frozen Pink Lemonade. Their website states no price, which is odd. I emailed you that link.

However, if you are really stuck, you can purchase frozen lemonade and add pink food coloring, which you can buy at a craft store, or a pinhead amount of red food coloring, which you can get at any food store.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Please find a replacement for coffee for me. By the way, I do not have a computer. — Helen Matthews

Dear Helen: The first thing that came to mind was Postum. As a child my grandmother used to drink it instead of coffee. You can purchase it by calling The Vermont Country Store at 800-547-7849. An 8-ounce jar, which makes 75 cups is $19.95. If you buy two jars, the cost is $17.95 each.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: In need of a tabletop gas grill, not charcoal. — David M.

Dear David: A Char-Broil stainless-steel tabletop gas grill regularly $84.99 is on sale for $69 at Target. If you use your Target charge, you get an additional 5% off.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: My husband, who is no spring chicken, is a handyman. I almost passed out when he was doing some work across the street.

He has a ladder that is maybe 6 foot and he put it up to the first roof, then drug it up to that roof, and then climbed up to a second roof. Any deals on big ladders? He claims they are too expensive. — Concerned Wife

Dear Concerned Wife: Wednesday is the last day to buy a 24-foot aluminum extension ladder regularly $204 on sale for $159 at Home Depot.
