Tips for protecting personal and financial information when shopping online.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I’m looking for a nondairy ricotta, brand name Tofutti. Before the pandemic, this product was available at ShopRite in Absecon, but it is no longer available. However, Tofutti cream cheese is still on the shelves. I’m dairy intolerant and miss all the great recipes that require ricotta. — Marianne Christinziano

Dear Marianne: According to Tofutti’s website, both ShopRite in Absecon and Galloway Township both sell it. Also, it states that Bonterra Market on Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township sells it. Ask your ShopRite grocery manager if the store can get it for you. You can call Tofutti Brands, Inc., located in Cranford, at 908-272-2400 for more information or possibly more stores close to you.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Looking for an outdoor fire pit that takes wood, not gas. — Paul G.

Dear Paul: Wednesday is the last day to get a 35-inch round lattice wood-burning fire pit at Walmart for $94.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I’m looking for a business 3D printer in the Tuckerton, Manahawkin, LBI area that will reproduce items. — Febinder

Dear Febinder: Best Buy has quite a few 3D printers ranging in price from $189.99 to $4,354.95. I emailed you a link with the 10 Best 3D printers from
