Buyer's Choice: Things We Love Now - January 2014
Posted: Wednesday, January 1, 2014
Natural and Specialty Foods Buyer Debbie Leland has some great picks this month:
NUTIVA RED PALM OIL
We're excited to introduce delicious organic red palm oil grown on small organic family farms in northwestern Ecuador. By partnering with Natural Habitats in Ecuador, Nutiva ensures that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process. A wonderful buttery flavor makes Nutiva's Red Palm Oil an excellent choice for soups, sauces and medium-heat sautéing. Look for it in the Grocery Department.
JUSTIN'S NUT BUTTERS
Justin's Organic Nut Butters are made in small batches to preserve premium quality standards and fresh taste. It's sustainably harvested and made as local as possible from the highest quality natural and organic ingredients. Look for Peanut and Almond Butters with flavors like maple, vanilla, chocolate and honey. Also look for Justin's Organic Peanut Butter Cups. Justin's is in the Grocery Department.
LUNDBERG MULTIGRAIN CHIPS
Made from organic brown rice blended with organic favorites like red and white quinoa, amaranth, corn, millet, garbanzo beans, chia, and flax seeds, Lundberg Multigrain Chips are available in the Grocery Department in four delicious flavors: Mendocino Tomato & Herb, Mojave Jalapeño, Shasta Chipotle Lime and Redwood Smoky BBQ.
WHITE GIRL SALSA
Its distinctive nickname was bestowed upon Julie Nirvelli's homemade tomatillo-based salsa by her Hispanic friends when it passed the family's discerning table test! Vibrant, all natural, tomatillo-based blends are the party dress of salsas: fresh, sassy and just a bit spicy. Whether you're craving lots of heat, a mild-mannered treat or just something a bit different, White Girl Salsa is fast, fresh and oh-so-dippable.
WOW BAKING COMPANY COOKIES
These moist and chewy gourmet wheat-free and gluten-free mini cookies are packed with rich, delicious flavor and are conveniently packaged in a resealable bag. All natural Ginger Molasses, Chocolate Chip, Lemon Burst, Snickerdoodle and Peanut Butter Cookies are made with real butter, real vanilla and organic cane juice with no hydrogenated oils, refined sugars or artificial flavors. Look for this 2012 sofi™ Award Winner in the Grocery Department.
