Willy Street Co-op Mushroom Parm QBalls
Protein-packed! Meatless meatballs that are made with quinoa, egg, and Parmesan cheese. No meat; still complete!
Cesar's Oaxacan String Cheese
Endlessly stringy! This locally produced, hand-stretched string cheese is perfect for kids and adults. Made by Cesar Luis, who learned the art of cheesemaking by hand as a young boy in Oaxaca, Mexico, and currently produces in Columbus, WI.
Emmi Roth’s Swiss Kaltbach Le Cremeux
This Swiss cheese is a little stinky and aged in the Kaltbach caves in the Alpine Valley. This cheese is heavenly, creamy and smooth. Tastes great on its own or melted on casseroles and in omelets. Pairs well with Chardonnay or single malt Scotch.
Renard's 2-Year White Cheddar
For all the times you are looking for a staple, snacking, melting, tasty cheese that doesn't break the bank or leave you feeling basic.
Willy Street Co-op Peanut Butter Pie
Anyone who loves chocolate, peanut butter, or cheesecake would love this. It comes in one slice or a half pie, so it is great if you just want a slice or want to share (or in my case eat the whole half by yourself).
Pinn Oaks Rack of Lamb Chops
All of the Pinn Oaks lamb is wonderful, but these chops are the best. The flavor is spectacular and the ratio of fat, meat and bones is perfect. If you've never tried lamb before, this is a great place to start, and if you love lamb, you won't be disappointed by these.
Willy Street Co-op Orange Juice
Once you try this, you'll never want any other orange juice! Made on-site from fresh oranges, Willy Street Co-op OJ tastes just like an orange picked right from the tree. Always a breakfast staple, enjoy on its own or with carbonated water for a bubbly burst.
Willy Street Co-op Spring Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce
These are perfect for lunch or a snack. They are light, refreshing and just the right mix of textures. The spicy peanut sauce adds just the right tangy kick!
Willy Street Co-op Risotto Cakes
I use these tasty little cakes for an easy side dish at dinner or a post-lunch snack. I'm sure they are extra delicious coming out of an oven, but 45 seconds in the microwave does me just fine. Now made with no gluten ingredients!
Old Reliable, as it's known in our house. I think broccoli is the perfect veggie—versatile, tasty, nutritious. You can eat big ol' spears for dippin', or finely chop it to hide in mac and cheese because your toddler won't eat it. Eat it raw, roasted, or boiled to mush. It's ALL good.
Virgil's Zero Sugar Cream Soda
Cream soda is so decadent and delicious, but now you can have it with zero sugar and zero guilt! Virgil's has mastered the sugar-free flavor. Try it and see!
The GFB (aka Gluten Free Bites) Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
Sure, there's lots of "protein balls" and "granola clusters" out there to choose from, but these are my favorite. The coating is just like that of a caramel apple, but the inside is soft and chewy, a truffle of dates and dark chocolate. They are packed with protein but won't feel like a rock in your stomach. Good, clean, delicious energy. Plus, they are made next door in Michigan!
Maxine's Organic Chocolate Ice Cream
I don't know what their secret is, but I have never had a chocolate ice cream that is soooooooo velvety smooth. Seriously, the texture is amazing. Besides it being a great product, I like to support Maxine's/Three Twins for three other reasons. They have a production facility in Sheboygan. Their products are organic. And they donate proceeds to Global Wildlife Conservation for every container purchased.
Carr Valley Cocoa Cardona
"Chocolate and Cheese" is no longer just the name of your favorite Ween album. This semi-firm, decadent goat's milk cheese from local cheesemakers, Carr Valley, is the perfect dessert cheese (think chocolate mousse). It is super nice paired with an iced wine or Shiraz.
Acure Dry Shampoo
Camping, using semi-permanent hair dye or just don't have the time to wash and dry your hair? Try dry shampoo! Not only is it easy to use and convenient, it also has only six ingredients—all vegan, sulfate- and paraben-free!
Justin's Peanut Butter Cups
Forget everything you thought you knew about chocolate peanut butter cups; these will rock your world!!!
Caulipower Pizza Crust
We have several awesome gluten-free pizza crusts. Made largely of cauliflower, this one has a traditional texture, and tastes great (like pizza crust, not cauliflower).
Siggi's Triple Cream Vanilla Icelandic Yogurt
When I indulge in yogurt, I look for a higher fat content. This one fits the bill, has simple ingredients, and tastes awesome.
Delicious, low carb, and convenient. Wild Boar is probably my favorite.
Willy Street Co-op Olive Bar
You can put together your own assortment of high-quality olives, whether just a few for a snack or a lot for a party tray. Also allows you to try something new without buying a whole jar.
Primal Kitchen Salad Dressings
I like these dressings because they taste good and are made with healthier avocado oil instead of soy.
El Rey Lemon Tortilla Chips
These chips are dangerous. Perfectly crisp and lemony. They don't stay in my house for long.
Jason Sea Fresh Deep Sea Spearmint
I was looking for a cruelty-free toothpaste that did NOT have SLS (which causes irritation in my mouth) but DID have fluoride, and this is one of the very few that fits the bill. I also enjoy the flavor which is less sugary sweet than most commercial toothpastes but still tastes very pleasant.
Mineral Fusion Charcoal Gel Cleanser
I have sensitive eyes and sensitive skin so taking off makeup at the end of the night can be daunting. I discovered this product and I couldn't be happier! It removes makeup and extracts dirt and oil from the pores. It's also gentle. I can wash around my eyes and it feels fine. This product lathers well, so a little bit goes a long way. I use about a nickel-sized portion.
Wedderspoon Manuka Honey Plus Immunity—Tart Cherry with Sunflower Seedbutter
I was wondering for so long what the deal was with these little packets. I finally tried one, and I was so pleasantly surprised! Made from raw manuka honey and bee propolis, it is a delicious way to boost your immunity. I buy these for a snack when I have a sweet tooth, but don't want a baked good. Tart cherry adds an anti-inflammatory benefit and 100% of your daily value of vitamin C. Try one—you'll love it!
Derma-E Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask
This charcoal mask always leaves my skin looking and feeling great. The charcoal clears the gunk out of your pores while the apricot powder exfoliates away dead skin. Follow with your favorite moisturizer and you'll be good to go.
Packed with phytonutrients, kale is as tasty as it is affordable. Haven't tried greens yet? Kale is a great place to start. Good in stir-fries, sautéed, or massaged with lemon juice in a salad. Excellent with sesame oil!
Shizen Spicy Avocado Inari
Our sushi vendor rolls fresh, tasty sushi daily at all three stores. All the sushi is wonderful, but for a really nice treat, I like the avocado inari. It is sweet and savory (if you dip in the soy sauce). The little bit of spicy sauce brings it all together. Treat yourself!
Willy Street Co-op Vegan Smoky Black Bean and Sweet Potato
This tastes great and can be used in so many different ways! It's a great on top of nachos, stuffed in a bell pepper and baked, or just enjoy it on its own!
Madison Sourdough Grain and Seed Boule
This bread is light and fluffy, but still has a lot of substance. It's the perfect size for small sandwiches or toast and pairs well with almost anything.
Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Chips
First off, these taste like Pringles. So the brand name is a misnomer as you will eat far more than is sensible. Generally I will finish off a quarter can while making dinner, and my wife will eat alone because I am full. Sensible.
Di Salvo's Spaghetti Sauce
I love these sauces! The flavor is authentically Italian. They are delicious on spaghetti or meatball sandwiches. Plus they are local. They taste just like my Nona made them.
Follow Your Heart Vegenaise
I love vegenaise. Love it. It is the best tasting mayo-alternative I’ve ever tried (and I have tried many). I use the original and the reduced-fat for sandwiches, coleslaw, dressing (Vegan 1000 Island), and dips (as in, I dip my fries and Boca chik'n nuggets in it).
Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Bar Soap
Dr. Bronner's soap has so many uses! The Dr. Bronner's pure-castile bar soap is my go-to soap for everyday body care. It lathers nicely and doesn't leave your skin dry. I also have the bar and use it in my laundry, I've washed my dog with it, and it gets stains out of my carpet when my cat leaves me little cat puke presents. It's certified fair trade, made with organic oils, and comes in a variety of scents.
