Incredibly high quality for the price—like buying a tuna steak in a can!
Tamaleria el Poblano Chicken Tamales
Our son has taken one in his school lunch every day for months! They’re made locally and made from scratch.
Bell & Evans All-Natural Chicken Tenders
Super high quality and all-natural —great for the price. Plus they save us plenty of time when making chicken tacos, stir fry, and chicken in pita.
Deep Sleep Sleep Aid Softgels
Effectively helps you have restful sleep with no side effects.
Cesar’s Cheese String Cheese
The best everyday snack cheese there is, plus it’s locally made. This could’ve gone all the way in the Cheese Challenge!
Talenti gelato sea salt caramel
It’s so decadent you don’t need to wolf down a whole pint. Just a couple spoonfuls is enough—especially if you try the caramel flavor.
Caribbean Queen Juice
It’s got that ginger zing. And vitamin C, too. Super for staving off a sore throat.
merlot Bellavitano cheese
It’s pretty much universally loved wherever I take it. It works really well with wine and crackers. It’s rich, creamy, and salty.
AuraCacia Lavender Aromatherapy Bubble Bath and Body Butter
I use their bubble bath, and I have a pot of their body butter that has lasted me over a year. Both are gorgeously scented, and the lavender is relaxing.
RISHI Lavender Earl Grey Tea
It’s only available at the West store, but it’s worth the trip because bergamot and lavender are a match made in heaven. It’s like drinking a bouquet. Amazing with scones.
This is the best hummus I’ve ever had the pleasure of dipping a chip into. It’s very smooth and creamy and though it’s a bit pricey, it’s a good size container. And I met the family while they were sampling it, so I feel good buying it knowing it’s made with love.
I love that this is an option. I make a celery-orange-parsley-lemon juice and it tastes like summer. For the quality of the product, it’s a good price.
Capri Stick Bear Goat Muenster
It sounds weird, and I was hesitant to try it because I didn’t think I liked goat cheese, but this cheese is perfection! It’s perfect with apples and crackers. I love the orange rind part.
Earth Therapeutics Gardener’s Hand Repair
I am not a gardener, but my hands get very dry during the winter. This is the best lotion for it! It’s silky smooth and my hands feel as soft as a baby’s bottom.
They are the best drink to put a little pep in your step. I don’t like drinking coffee, so these work out great when I’m feeling sleepy. I like all the flavors, but Peach is my favorite. I also appreciate that these have no sugar, unlike a lot of energy drinks at the Co-op.
Peanut Butter Perfect Bar
I don’t like this item—I love it, and am actually happily addicted to it. It’s full of healthy fats and delicious peanut butter. This bar is a meal on its own and I recommend it to my friends and family, and Owners. Plus, it’s from San Diego—I lived there for a while. [This product is only available at Willy West.]
The Funky Monkey is a fun way to get a mobile meal that always cheers me up.
Bulk spinach is the way to go; packed with iron—it’s a fantastic super food that I enjoy every day. I enjoy it as a salad, or as an ingredient in my morning smoothie.
Some varieties of Tom’s doesn’t have fluoride, but still taste great and work well. I love the fact that Tom’s really cares about my oral hygiene!
GT’s Organic Raw Kombucha, specifically the Gingerade
This is definitely my go-to drink in the store. It’s loaded with probiotics to keep my belly happy and only has 2 grams of sugar per serving.
