Enzymedica Digest Gold
I've a dainty little stomach. I get digestive issues from many foods I enjoy. Enter: Digest Gold. I have a bottle of it at my desk, at home, and in my backpack; anytime I eat something I think may be an issue, I pop one of those bad boys at the start of a meal and am comfortable for the rest of the day. No bloat, no gas, no pain, no explosive diarrhea. Fantastic to have on hand for travel, holidays, or everyday!
My Magic Mud Whitening Peppermint Toothpaste
A really good fluoride-free toothpaste with coconut shell charcoal and bentonite clay.
Delicious, low-carb, and convenient. Wild Boar is probably my favorite.
Garnet Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are often overlooked as a holiday dish, but are by far my favorite! Mashed garnets with a little bit of brown sugar and butter added is a great addition to the Thanksgiving table, or for any meal.
Bulk Ginger Granola
It’s so easy to snag some granola out of our Bulk section, and we have so many yummy flavors. I especially like the ginger, because it has the perfect crunch and subtle flavor. I eat it almost every day with Greek yogurt or almond milk. It’s perfect as a light breakfast or mid-morning snack!
These sweet treats are organically grown in Mecca, California. In my opinion, these dates have just the right amount of sweetness (not overpoweringly sweet). They are super creamy, buttery, and delightful. My favorite is to have them with a cup of chamomile tea just before bedtime but they also go great with grapefruit in the morning as a start to the day. Basically, a couple Halawy dates are the perfect snack at any time of day!
Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Insulated Bottles
These work almost too well. They keep my coffee hot all day long. If I happen to have any left after work, it is still hot when I go to dump it out. They come in a variety of gorgeous colors and sizes.
Booda Butter Daily Moisturizer
Booda Butter gets my skin through the long, dry Wisconsin winters. It's more effective than any other lotion/balm/butter I've used on my hands and it smells amazing. The unrefined organic cocoa butter gives it a light, natural chocolate aroma (I think it smells like brownies). I love that it's vegan, organic, fragrance- and dye-free, and only has five ingredients.
Matcha Love Energy
One of these will get you going! Drinking matcha allows you to drink the whole leaf, giving you a steady boost of energy and mental clarity without the jitters or crash of coffee. Green tea is naturally rich in L-Theanine which has been thought to aid in relaxation. If coffee makes you jumpy, give one of these a try!
These taste just as good, if not better than, real chicken nuggets! I honestly can't tell the difference.
Willy Street Co-op House Plants
My favorite gift to give is one of the variety of house plants the Co-op offers! Our team takes immaculate care of the plants, and they are always healthy and a treat to look at! Recently, we have had ornamental pepper plants, and I may have gotten carried away and bought two of them! A thoughtful gift, and a nice way to treat yourself as well!
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).
Origin Breads The Original Loaf
This locally baked classic sourdough is perfect with a steaming cup of soup. This is real bread. It will fill you up and power your day. Delicious.
Willy Street Co-op Hot Bar Vegan Green Bean Casserole
The ultimate in comfort food. Crunchy onion topping, creamy green bean goodness—now that makes me smile. Check out all the great dishes on our Hot Bar and maybe you'll get lucky and find Green Bean Casserole on your visit.
Oregon Chai Slightly Sweet Chai Tea Latte
I love chai but boxed varieties are too sugary. How awesome that Oregon Chai makes a "slightly sweet" variety. Now I can taste the tea not just the sweetener. Great with any type of creamer.
Alter Eco Coconut Toffee Chocolate Bar
This chocolate gives me vacation vibes and is like a grown-up Almond Joy.
Tate's Bake Shop Chocolate Chip Cookies
You guys. I always thought I was a soft cookie girl, but these forced me to re-examine my life. I am now a crunchy cookie girl.
Tony’s Chocolonely Dark Almond Sea Salt Bar 51%
With dark chocolate (but not too dark), crunchy almonds, and just the right amount of sea salt, Tony’s has achieved the trifecta of chocolate bar flavor combos. This chocolate bar is basically the only chocolate I regularly buy now. It not only tastes amazing, but Tony’s chocolate is 100% slave-free, and their mission is to make all chocolate slave-free. I always keep a couple of these bars stashed away at home and at work.
Tucson Green Chili and Cheese Tamales
These are a go-to in my freezer for a quick and delicious lunch.
Carr Valley Creama Kasa
A semi-soft, creamy and nutty cheese that is great for snacking or dessert. Made in LaValle, Wisconsin.
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.
La Tourangelle Walnut Oil
A nice way to make your dishes EXTRA! Great in a salad dressing, on pasta, or with your protein. I prefer to use it uncooked as it is delicate and oh so special-precious!
Ancient Harvest Polenta
It's already made! I suppose you can just eat it out of the chub*, but I recommend sauteing it or grilling with a little olive oil. A nice alternative to pasta or rice, it goes great with pasta sauce, Italian sausage, zucchini, or with eggs at breakfast!
*Chub: A hermetically sealed plastic tube used for packaging products such as ground meat or caulk. Or polenta.
Willy Street Co-op Juice Bar Orange Juice
Once you try this, you’ll never want any other orange juice! Made on-site from fresh oranges, Willy Street Co-op Orange Juice 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.
Sassy Cow Salted Caramel Ice Cream
You have many salted caramel ice cream options to choose from. What makes this different is the saltiness—it's not overwhelming. I promise you won't be taking a bite of cold salt—but it is more noticeable than in other varieties. You really get that salty and sweet combo. Plus Sassy Cow is a great local business.
Taylor Farms Wellness Blend
A great greens mix that is hearty and never gets old. Excellent as the base for a salad or added to a stir-fry, soup, etc. My yearly winter challenge is to consume a whole container myself every week :)
Cesar's Queso Fresco
This cheese completes me! Perfectly salty and crumbly in texture. AMAZING on pretty much anything, but especially perfect on sweet corn or tacos.
Clif Bar Nut Butter-Filled Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
This Clif Bar satisfies my sweet tooth AND gives me energy. There’s a slight crunch to the chocolatey outside with smooth peanut butter in the middle. It is considered a low-glycemic food so you don’t have to worry about crashing an hour later.
Madison Sourdough Five Grain Sourdough Sandwich Bread
This bread is soft and delicious. The bummer is that I can never eat the whole thing before it goes bad. Lucky for me, I learned that this bread was actually made to be frozen in order to preserve the freshness. When you are ready to embark on your sourdough safari, just pop your frozen slices in the toaster on the lowest setting. Sourdough takes longer to toast than other breads so you don’t have to worry about it actually toasting the bread.
Bell & Evans Coconut Breaded Chicken Tenders
These are the best chicken tenders I have ever had in my life. Just enough coconut flavor to notice, but not so much that it takes away from the chicken or your favorite dipping sauce. Available at East and West only.
Bell & Evans Cornish Hen
These are so easy to prepare and are so juicy! You won't believe it! You can bake or grill these whole or try and use a spatchcock method of cutting. These little birds are a great way to try out that cooking technique. It shortens the cooking time.
Willy Street Co-op Juice Bar Berry Charger
One of my favorite smoothies of all time. The strawberry, mango, and apple blend wonderfully to create a not-too-sweet flavor with a nice kick of ginger and the tiny caffeine boost of jasmine tea. The flavors complement each other rather than compete to make this one fruity delight!
Quotable Espresso Mugs
These adorable tiny mugs make the perfect gift for the espresso lover in your life. Why do miniature objects intrigue us? Psychology may never know. Perhaps drinking espresso out of this tiny mug will help us deal with the unknown.
Willy Street Co-op Lemon Rosemary Scones
Who'd have thunk you could get a decent scone in the U.S.... but you can! Light, fluffy, not dry, and subtly flavored. It is a delightful breakfast treat.
Willy Street Co-op Door County Cherry Pie
This pie is made with local cherries, and it is so delicious! Great warmed up with ice cream, or as is, your taste buds will thank you for the serious flavor!
Nag Champa Shanthimalai Incense
The ones in the red box. This is my go-to incense and one of my favorites. A sweet earthy scent to enhance your meditation.
Seasonal and limited supply. Good for roasting or braising.
