Dashelito’s Sweet Heat Hot Sauce
Since the departure of the beloved Hawkwind company, my condiment game has been lacking. This sauce is awesome though and adds a nice sweet and spicy kick to anything. It’s great on sandwiches, eggs, mixed into salad dressings—anything. Go wild.
AuraCacia Bath Salts—Meditating Cedarwood
This is the perfect product to help calm and ease you after a day of work. The smell is warm and comforting and makes taking a bath super relaxing. May also be slightly dangerous in that it is SO relaxing that I often fall asleep in the tub. Whoops!
Peppadew Peppers from the Olive Bar
These are awesome. Sweet, spicy and oh so juicy. They’re a great addition to any cheese plate or just on their own. My favorite thing is to stuff them with a soft goat cheese. Such a delicious snack.
Smoky Rosemary and Garlic Sausage
SO GOOD. Super great flavor, somewhat spicy with a great smoky taste. These are always a hit at a summer cookout. Plus they’re made in-house!
Uncle Matt’s Orange Juice with Pulp
Uncle Matt’s is the orange juice you think you are getting when you buy it in a bottle like this one. No secret Black Book recipe here; it SIMPLY does not compare!
Stemless Stainless Steel Wine Glass
Great for wine when camping or doing yard work. Bonus: will also work for Moscow Mules and Mojitos!
Tillen Farms Maraschino Cherries
Skip the neon cherries and treat your Old Fashioned self and your Kiddie’s Cocktails to these!
Smooth Bulk Peanut Butter
Watching the peanuts get ground down to butter is a mesmerizing experience. It is as simple as it gets for ingredients. It is warm out of the grinder and you can taste the freshness. I love making peanut sauces for my stir-frys and adding it to my smoothies for a delicious PB&J flavor with a boost of protein.
Dreamfarm Garlic Dill Fresh Goat Cheese
So fresh, so smooth, so delicious—I have yet to have leftovers of this cheese. It is easy to bring to a picnic with some Nut Thins or a thinly sliced Bosc pear. The taste of the cheese changes with the season as the goats’ food sources change, so try it a few times throughout the summer and fall!
Tera’sWhey Vanilla Bourbon
This is such a delicious addition to smoothies. It isn’t overly sweetened or flavored, and pairs well with berries and peanut butter. It is an easy way for me to get enough protein in my diet without eating meat or exhausting my bean options.
Crossroads Community Farm Summercrisp Lettuce
This locally grown lettuce is the absolute best on the planet. It’s got all of the crunch of iceberg paired with the flavor and nutrition of red leaf lettuce. Perfect for sandwiches, salads, or lettuce wraps.
Acure Organics Morrocan Argan Oil
I use a little dab of this amazing oil on my face every day. It seems pricey, but a bottle lasts for a very long time and is so totally worth it. It feels great—not too oily or overpowering. Plus it’s sourced from a woman’s co-op in Morocco. The perfect daily luxury item!
Annie’s Green Goddess Dressing
My 2.5-year-old LOVES this! If she had her way she would dip everything in it. My picky 13-year-old will eat a plate full of salad if it has Green Goddess on it! It’s great on chicken, or spread on sandwiches and burgers. I like to freshen it up with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice!
Bone-in Pork Chops
One of the BEST things to grill! The bone really does add more flavor when grilling. I LOVE these marinated in soy sauce, pineapple juice, and onion—then grilled with pineapple slices, and onions! YUM!
Greenbush Bakery Pumpkin Spice Donuts
These donuts are moist, cakey, and delicious! Great for snacks or even dessert. Make sure you eat one before you get them home, because they will disappear!
Rhino Gummy Vitamins (for kids)
My 2.5-year-old is a big fan of these, so much so that she asks for them every morning. They are made with natural colors and flavors, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free. They are also pretty reasonably priced!
Green Mountain Gringo Roasted Garlic Salsa
Perfectly mild, and not overpowering with garlic. My spice-hating toddler and teen both enjoy this—it’s a crowd pleaser! Great price, too!
Quorn Chik’n Patties
Being a carnivore myself I was very surprised by how darn good these are, if I didn’t know what they were I could swear that they were real chicken. But in reality they are a fungus, which is a GREAT alternative meat for vegetarians!
Red Bartlett Pears
Before working at the Co-op I had no idea that there was more than one kind of pear, and upon sampling these flavorful, juicy bundles of happiness they quickly became my favorite go-to for a healthy snack!
Tamaleria el Poblano Tamales
These delicious tubes of happiness come in three flavors: Chicken, Pork, and Jalapeno. I can’t pick a favorite because I love them all so much!
Nature’s Plus Spiru-tein Protein Powder
This stuff has it all and then some! It’s vegan so it fits any diet, and it tastes great! Plus as an added bonus spirulina is a superfood!
WTRMLN WTR—Watermelon Juice
This stuff has replaced any type of drink I use after working out. It’s got great watermelon flavor but without the hassle of the seeds! Plus it’s super hydrating and doesn’t leave you thirsty for more afterwards like some of the other post-workout beverages out there.
HappyBaby Superfood Puffs
My 17-month-old son has loves these! They were among his first finger foods, and now he eats them by the handful. I love that the ingredients are organic, and they have some added nutrients like choline and B12. The veggie and fruit powders are a nice addition.
Willy Street Co-op Hot Bar Tofu Scramble
Best tofu scramble I’ve ever had. Not trying to be something it’s not. Well seasoned, and I love the veggies in it. East only.
John Masters Organics Zinc and Sage Shampoo with Conditioner
My hair is straight, oily, abundant, and kinda thick. I’m a mom and work full time, so showers are a luxury. I love this shampoo because it leaves my hair shiny and silky, easy to brush (or not), and it removes all static (which I am plagued with if I try to not use conditioner).Smells like cake, sulfate-free, made with organic ingredients. What’s not to love?
Brown Cow Coffee Cream Top Yogurt
So creamy! But not too sweet with the tart coffee flavor undertone. Tastes like dessert for breakfast.
Bellavitano Gold Cheese
Rich, creamy, and slightly tart, making it the perfect fancy (yet affordable) substitute for parmesan cheese. My kids call it “the good cheese.”
Willy Street Co-op The Zelda Breakfast Sandwich
Named after the Grocery Assistant Manager at West, this takes the typical biscuit breakfast sandwich to new heights by substituting divine Willow Creek ham for bacon. As a former ham hater, this is the only ham I will eat and I can’t get enough of it! West only.
Aura Cacia Lavender Relaxing Lavender Electric Air Freshener
I have a 12-year-old son and the fresh lavender scent makes it bearable to enter his bedroom.
Alba Botanica Very Emollient Sunscreen Lip Care with SPF 25
Soft and smooth, unflavored, non-waxy lip balm that stays on long and also protects my lips with SPF 25. I keep one in my car, kitchen, bedside table and backpack.
WTRMLN WTR—Watermelon Juice
Great tasting, rehydrating sweetness!
