Cristina Brehob says
I LOVE Whole Foods for so many reasons…the new healthy food finds, the amazing produce, the local options, the prepared foods/salad bar…I could go on and on : ) Just moved from California to Alabama so it’s comforting to have a familiar store near but where we can get healthy food and expre some new finds.

The salad bar, hummus wall, and kombucha wall are my weaknesses!
They have a great deli counter. I love their grilled veggies and grilled corn salad!
Janice Jaime says
One of my favorite items from WFM are the fruit bars, “That’s It!”. Me and my sister love them for snack because the only ingredients in the bars are fruit. They also bought a kale guacamole and I never seen it again! It was soooo delicious.

Holiday Season FABULOUS Whole Foods Find: Kandy Kale (Pumpkin Spice is actually heaven, Peppermint Bark is fantastic too)
Year Round (?) Whole Foods Finds: 1.Brat Hans Butternut Squash Chicken Sausage! No nitrates/antibiotics!

Laura Campbell says
I really love FoMu ice cream, its a vegan ice cream company based out of the Boston area, its definitely is not a vegan treat that is just a free for all, but its SO tasty and is a great “healthier” alternative especially if you’re dairy free like me! Also you’re supporting a local company which is always great!
I love “Dang!” coconut chips. I know they sell them a bunch of places now, but I first found them at Whole Foods. So good!
My favorite items are the trail mix and Beanstalk coffee (local business in the Cape).
Hail Merry snacks! So delicious 🙂
such a tough one… but i would have to say their bulk honey roasted peanut butter.. grind it right there!
I like the Whole Foods brand Avocado Vinaigrette Dressing. I’d always choose it when getting a salad from the cold bar, and one day realized that they probably sold it in store too.Took me awhile to find it because it was in the refrigerated section, but I love how I can have it anytime now.
I’m literally sitting in the Whole Foods parking lot nursing my son. We stopped by before bracing the traffic. The store was super busy as we are expected to get more yes more snow here in Boston! We got some awesome goodies, I found organic Chrolella (hope that’s the correct spelling) also found some great organic Macha! Picked up Pacific foods almond milk to attempt to make Macha tea latte :-)))
I just ate whole foods for dinner and love their yucca fries from the hot bar. I also love Ezekiel cinnamon raisin English muffins, cashew butter, and kombucha at whole foods!
Adina Bambur says

I LOVE the blueberry and raspberry jalapeno jams! They go great on brie & crackers!!

This is weird but my favorite whole foods find (well besides all the awesome veggies and fruit) is actually the pizza at the beacon hill (charles River plaza) location in bosfon.. Tried it in other places but it’s the only location that I will ever buy pizza from! So good, the crust is thin and delicious, the cheese blend is delicious, and the toppings are always plentiful!
Dang coconut chips are amazing! I always pick up a bag or two.
Tracey C says
Whole Foods was the first place I tried the Mamma Chia pouches! I still enjoy the green magic or apple cinnamon ones. Also love their shaker salad cups, especially the Cesar one. I really am looking forward to going to the new south end WF as I heard they have kombucha on tap!

At the WFM in NOVA that I go to, I always go straight to the sushi and pasta sections. I love alfredo pasta and they have such a great variety!

Kate B says

Shelby Dwyer says
So I realize this isn’t super exciting, but I am obsessed with Lacinato kale -- also known as dinosaur kale. It’s a darker, flatter kale, not at all bitter, definitely more tender. I love chopping up the leaves and using them as the greens in salads (tossed with your version of Life Alive’s dressing, and a bunch of veggies!). Thanks for the great giveaway!
Nora M says
I’m eating a lot of dried fig from the bulk section lately
Nikki Fahey says
Brittany scott says
we finally have whole foods markets in more of our metro areas in Minnesota! I love their salad bar options for when I’m on the go and haven’t planned ahead. Their quinoa dishes are my favorite! But then I’m a huge quinoa fan.
I love the 365 brand of unsweetened almond milk. It’s so hard to find almond milk without a ton of additives and this one is the closest to clean as I have been able to find for when I don’t have the time or energy to make my own from scratch.
Is it silly to say I love their samples?! Last week in the cheese department I tried an in house smoked Gouda pimento cheese and then a spinach artichoke dip at the deli! Yum so j guess what i should really say are their prepared foods even if they are splurge treats!
Jordan D. says
I seriously love Whole Foods’ prepared foods. The hot bar and salad bar have so many wonderful options. I think my favorite grocery find at Whole Foods is Hope Hummus. They have some awesome flavors like sriracha, avocado, and they even have dark chocolate dips. Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
Kristi S says
i love the fresh-ground peanut & almond butters!!
Susan Christy says
I love bread, especially garlic bread and the Mamma Bella’s Garlic Toast at Whole Foods is the BEST!
Stacy @ Sweating Tulipz says
My favorite whole foods market finds has to be Coconut toasted Cashews. They are the perfect mix of salty and sweet. But, be careful, if you are anything like me, you will run the risk of eating well over the RDA of fat because they are just that good!
Siobhaun MacIntosh says
I love whole foods!! Especially the mango fruit bars!!
i love the dairy free products as well as the vegan chocolate! Plus, who doesn’t love the hot and cold food bar! Easy lunch!!
I love getting snacks that don’t have HFCS or just corn syrup in them. It’s a real challenge at other grocery stores. Panda licorice is my fave 🙂
I am obsessed with WF 365 organic brand of peanut butter! 🙂
I’ve been wanting to try Wholefoods for a long time. It’s not close by, but after reading the comments and recommendations, I really need to make the trek and check it out -- looking for a non-dairy yogurt, and whipping cream without carrageenan for when I make homemade ice cream for my kiddos. Thanks Sarah -- love your blogs, videos and your app!!
Claire Raphaelson says
I think my favorite thing at WE is the vegan detox salad when they have it at the salad bar. I’m not vegan and I’m not attempting a detox, I just LOVE the flavor and texture combinations, it’s great alone or added to greens with some protein, and it’s super healthy!
The organic brown sugar is worth it
My fav find so far is raw coconut water and raw food snacks! I also discovered kelp noodles!
I absolutely love the fresh honey roasted PB machines! My location is Del mar California. I love the orlando one as well!
nicole dz says
At the Whole Foods Market in Ann Arbor Michigan, my favorite find so far is the frozen WOW wonders of wheatgrass. I like to add it to smoothies or just take it alone.
I love Valrhona dark chocolate. It is this amazing creamy french chocolate I can only find at WFM in Middletown, it’s an hr away but so worth the trip!
I look forward to my Whole Foods shopping each week!! Just moseying around and looking for new finds is great! My favorite find is their grind your own honey roasted peanut butter…so, so delish, but definitely not an everyday eat!
Our new Whole Foods is scheduled to open this month! (Newport News, VA) so I am so excited to explore the store and can’t specifically rave about a particular item. I can say I’m super excited to purchase organic fruits and vegetables and fresh fish that I know is local. I’m also looking to purchase non GMO products which I’ve heard Whole Foods as the most amazing selection!
Kristen Fogarty says
My favorite find at whole foods is their selection of juices and kombucha. Their selection is unbeatable!
Megan S. says
I get so excited when I’m able to be there for lunch or dinner. The hot and salad bars with a fresh baguette are the best find for a healthy dinner out!! I also love their fresh cheese section!
marie dorgan says
I love their unsweetened almond milk because it contains no carrageenan ,which is hard to find ones without.In the bulk section I buy oat groats which I mix with muesli,chia,cinnamon ,fruit and of course the almond milk to make an overnight porridge.Love Whole Foods!
I am so excited we are finally getting a WFM in my area. Currently the closest is 2 hours away so I have to take a cooler and stock up when I go! I love their fresh produce and the varieties of nut mixes! Not to mention their hot food/salad bar for lunch! Yes I am the person who eats at WFM for lunch when I travel!

Denise L says
I don’t have one favorite find, but I have discovered more delicious, reasonably-priced wines at Whole Foods that I can count. I LOVE their wine section.
Emily B says
Whole Foods is the best! I love their bulk section for raw, sprouted nuts, organic popcorn kernals, and quinoa. Also in Chicago, one of their specialty “stores” is RAW a raw foods store local to Chicago…they have the best Kitchen Sink Cookies.
I love their make-your-own nut butter stations! I had no idea that so many nut butters have extra sugar and salt added until I started carefully checking labels! Even the “healthy” kinds that claim to be natural and organic. goes to show you not to trust the name. I am also addicted to the golden sesame tofu (you can sometimes get it at the salad bar, but it’s also with the pre-made sandwiches and salads). I seriously have to watch myself around it!
I’m a fellow Bostonian (well, Somerville) and can’t wait to check out the new South End Wholefoods! the ones in Somerville are fine, but a bit small. You have to go to Cambridge to get one that sells beer and wine.
I love their seafood and also their ground nut butter!
I love when I can do fresh ground nut butter!
I love kombucha and whole foods has the greatest selection by far!
Big fan of the mini scones.
my favorite whole foods find is thunderbird bars! They are a great on the go option for me as I am running around town that provide fiber and protein and taste good!
Kathy Howe says
WFM is the only place i can buy acìa packets. I love acìa bowls. But sadly you cannot buy them in Wisconsin. So I have to make my own!!
Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment says
The Whole Foods I go to in Austin is the flagship store and it is truly an emporium of food. Love it!
My favorite WFM find is Pitaya (aka dragon fruit) and all the other hard to find produce items. They’re pricey, but totally worth it as a delicious reminder of my time in Asia!
My favorite finds would have to be their hot bar, their fresh, fresh produce and their bacon at their hot bar! It’s unlike anything else. 🙂
My favorite WFM find are grains an beans from bulk bins. I love to use mung beans and azuki beans to make dessert and WFM is the only place around me I can find them.
They don’t always have it available, but when they do, my favorite WFM buy is their guackalemole. Yeah--guac made with kale! SO good.
I love WF’s salad bar!!! Oh my gosh can’t get enough. They have a great quinoa salad that is to die for!
japanese yams are my favorite find; they are now preferred
I love WFM cold and hot salad bar -- they always have delicious rice and vegetable salads AND they list all ingredients and allergens!
Julie O'Neil says

My WFM find is hemp seed hearts; I was looking for this all over then found it at WF, love them sprinkled over salads, yogurt, oatmeal, in smoothies, anything, really, and so good for you 🙂
Hmm how to pick a favorite WF find ? Now living in France where peanut butter is harder to find, I’ll have to say the 365 peanut butter, smooth- BEST peanut butter ever. I bring back suitcases every time I visit home. I also love their make your own trail mix bar !
Chameleon cold brew coffee! Not sure if this is just a Texas thing but I am completely addicted.
I love the Hail Merry Macaroons, I have only found them at whole foods. They are amazing! They have these newish miracle tarts I really want to try!
Meghan F says
Whole Foods hot bar is my favorite. I hardly ever go because when I do I end up spending a good chunk of money, but when i treat myself, that’s where I go! I love the variety of flavors and options they offer.
Kelly D says
I like the machines in which you can make your own peanut butter.
I love WFM especially because of the bulk section: has great deals! Flax seeds and granola are great to buy in bulk
Jennifer Chorazy says
my favorite whole foods market find is Terra Chips! OMG, the selection they have is amazing! But don’t buy them, because once you open the bag it is soooooo hard to stop eating them! My favorite flavor is the harvest blend
Lisa @ Life as Lisa Knows It says
I LOVE their salad bar!! 🙂
Cashew milk! The only but milk that’s creamy enough for cereal.
Elizabeth Lamontagne says
How do I narrow it down? Some of my favorite Whole Foods Market finds include Dang Coconut Chips, Artisana Coconut Butter, and Nutiva Red Palm Oil. Best place to source my healthy fat collection.
My favorite find is the Suja green juice! My whole foods has the jug version so you get your money’s worth of organic juice goodness. It’s great first thing in the morning!
Hmm my favorite WFM find, it is hard to choose one fav!!! I will say their 365 brand Pumpkin Ice Cream! It isn’t always available, but you have to get it at the holidays for sure! I was amazed at how yummy it is!!! I’ve also tried to duplicate it with homemade, but nowhere near as delish!
There is such a huge selection of yummy foods at WFM. I love their better bean products and those salads (beans and cous cous)
My fav is their 365 brand Pumpkin Ice Cream! It isn’t always available, but you have to get it at the holidays for sure! I was amazed at how yummy it is!!! I’ve also tried to duplicate it with homemade, but nowhere near as delish!

I love Whole Foods California rolls!
I have been loving the opal apples with vanilla almond butter!
Better oats cinnamon plum oatmeal! Such a good unique flavor 🙂
Norma Shepardson says
I normally don’t buy a lot of packaged foods, but I do really like the 365 Organic Whole Wheat Mini Pancakes as a treat. Some days I just crave something like this and if I’m spot on with my workouts, a few of these babies really feels indulgent 🙂 I like that they are small so you don’t get stuck with more than you really need, plus the box goes a long way if you just snack on one or two at a time.
The mama chia seed your soul squeezable chia snacks. They are kind of weird but good and an easy way to get some energy before a morning workout.
Vangie K. says
I love the cacao nibs and organics veggies at Whole Foods:) Thanks for the giveaway!
They have the most amazing cheese~Crescenza from Bellwether Farms!
My favorite find is Italian Parmesan cheese
I like their swiss and French cheeses.
I love a few things at whole foods. The 365 brand waffles are great and about 50 cents cheaper than the other waffle choicse (add some almond butter = an amazing, warm-gooey way to start your day). I also like the variety of greek yogurts at whole foods. I’ve been a fage or stonyfield only girl but I’ve recently started buying brown cow when it goes on sale and it is very good as well. Lastly, the Amy’s Diary-Free veggie pot pies are out of this world and an easy dinner.
Jessica Lynn says
I love the Garden of Eatin’ Blue corn tortilla chips and WH guacamole! Yum
I like the fresh flowers that greet me at the door when I enter. The skin care products are wonderful (love shea butter!) and also the essential oils. One of my perennial favorites is the Nature’s Path pumpkin flax granola.

Jennifer Flood says
My favorite Whole Foods is the one in C’ville VA. Regardless of the crummy parking situation, they are awesome!
Every time I go to WF I love trying something new from the chocolate section! My fave go-to in anything by Green & Black’s. They also usually have a good variety of local coffee too!
Congrats Katelyn! You won the giveaway. I’m sending you an email asap.
I LOVE WM container of frozen snicker doodles found I the frozen foods section. It’s a small pint size container with about 12 cookies. Snicker doodles are hard to come by, and I don’t bake. Just pop 2 (or all) on a cookie tray and bake. They’re delish and fresh. The perfect little treat 🙂
I really like their green juice. Mmm!
Becky Shade says
I’m in love with Justin’s Almond Butter from WFM. I’m also dying to try the Kombucha on tap at the new South End location! So cool.
Rebecca chakarian says
I love the Suja Lemon Love juice and Pacific salad sushi rolls! So yummy!

kate r. says

My local WFM has this amazing Vegetable Fried Rice that I love.
I love the Majestic Garlic brand garlic spreads and the cashew butter I recently found there!
Lisa @ Lisa Living Well says
I sampled the Svelte drinks at WF last year and now I buy them all the time! They’re a nice protein drink for a 3 p.m. pick me up at work. I also love their prices on organic fruits and veggies.

I LOVE whole foods! I favorite thing to buy Synergy Gingerberry Kombucha! Delish!
I love the tofu at the Whole Foods salad bar and I am in love with their bulk section -- great place to pick up nutritional yeast! I keep meaning to get over to the new Whole Foods in the South End but these blizzards really keep getting in the way:( Fantastic giveaway!
Hopefully this is available at all WFM, but the one in Baltimore makes made to order guacamole right in front of you. Guac isn’t too difficult to make, but they must have some secret ingredient that makes it irresistible!!
Amy’s candy bars (crunch version)! Tastes just like heath bars but all natural and not filled with tons of chemicals and sugar!
Fellow Bostonian here 🙂 I was absolutely ecstatic when I found FoMu (non-dairy ice cream) being sold at Whole Foods! I was so disappointed when I had it for the first time at the Allston FoMu store, because I didn’t think I would be able to get it easily, but Whole Foods definitely saved me there. It’s absolutely delicious!
love these comments…can’t wait to go through them! Let’s see…I love the Rise Bars protein bars, Santa Cruz dark roast PB, Wholey Wholesome spelt pie crusts (for quiche)!
My fave WFM find recently were the Dang coconut chips -- caramel flavor! YUM!
Kim N says
My favorite Whole Foods finds are the dried mango in the bulk bons and the Strider’s Nut Mix. They’re ky favorite travel foods!
The cookies by the pound! Because they are small so you can get a few little ones to try or satisfy a sweet craving without getting a whole package!!
I love their beauty products (mineral fusion is amazing!) and I have recently discovered kite hill vegan cream cheese (obsessed) and I love Bubbies sauerkraut! Sooooo good! I’m also addicted to the so delicious coco whip, god I could just go on and on!
I like their Canyon Bakehouse gluten free bread
My favorite is the Komcucha soda -- that is healthier than regular soda (doesn’t contain artificial ingred.). Taste amazing! You can find info here -- http://livesodakombucha.com/
Love Wholefoods and am excited to be getting a brand new one closeby this summer! My current faves are the Quikos corn snacks, handy for when friends come over, also love the Engine 2 brand frozen sides for a healthy side in a crunch (tip: add lemon and cilantro to kick it up a notch). And if we’re lucky, scoring Portuguese bread rolls from their freshly baked bread section, usually sells out fast!!
I’m a sucker for their salad bar!
Some of the whole foods in Boston have a bin where they put out the “cheese ends” — little chunks (usually <1 dollar) leftover from cutting up fancy cheeses. It's a fun way to sample pricey cheeses without buying a whole wedge.
I also love the buffalo tofu at the hot bar — mmmm.

I love Whole Foods brand Mama’s Pesto. It’s so fresh & delicious with the perfect amount of garlic & cheese. It’s great for homemade pizzas 🙂
Store brand peanut butter
My favorite Whole Foods items: their produce, flowers (they are beautiful & last forever), and when I’m in a hurry -- their salad bar.
Cara Baraldi says
I love all the options at in the bulk bins! Especially things like almond meal and different yeasts that I usually need in small quantities when trying out new recipes. Before I used to buy the whole bag and end up wasting it!
My new-to-me favorite WFM item is Grillo’s Pickles, they are fresh and all natural and make a great low cal snack!
I love their butternut squash soup!
I love the Guac-Kale-Mole: guacamole made with kale. So addicting and even healthier than traditional guac!
Sarah W says
I love the Whole Food’s brand coconut popsicles, they have real coconut flakes in them!
Two favs! Fresh perogies for the winter and their cranberry couscous salad!
Evert time I go to Whole Foods I HAVE to get a tub of the make your own honey roasted peanut butter. Obsessed!
Kim Henrichs says
My favorite Whole Foods Market find is their stocks and broths. I use them religiously now.
My current (because it changes so frequently) WFM find is the Crankin’ C smoothie fro their juice bar -- I know crave one after working out!
I love the quinoa/brown rice sushi from Whole Foods
Natasha Hudnall says
I know Yogi Tea is sold at a lot of other chained stores, but I found the best Yogi Tea (in my opinion) At Whole Foods Yogi Tea’s Perfect energy Vanilla Spice. It is so yummy and it does give you energy
Seeds of change jalfrezi sauce! It’s the best!
A slice of the vegan pizza from the pizza bar, usually with added cheese and popped back in the pizza oven for a couple of minutes to melt it!
I love my local Whole Food’s Kombucha on tap. Can’t get enough of it!
Amber Holbrook says
I love everything in the bulk section! Raw nuts, dried sour cherries… mmmm. 🙂
Bulk grains (great way to try different hearty grains), bulk spices (to refill glass jars at home), delicious Iggy’s bread, and non-toxic beauty products.

I found delicious cakes and macaroons. I stop by anytime I go through a town with Whole foods!
My favorite whole foods find is in the bulk bins -- small pieces of flour coated dates. They’re nature’s best candy!
Sam @ The Second Lunch says
Not exactly health food, but local greater boston stores have these phenomenal English muffins made by Stone and Skillet. They are so good! I also often buy frozen Swiss chard, one of my favorites -- you get so much more chard frozen. And always the guacamole. And they have vegan seven layer dip at South end which is really good!
The Whole Foods brunch buffet at the hot bar on Sundays.
Living in Ottawa, Canada, there is now a new Whole food. Never tried it in the past, the first one in the area. Would love to be able to by some organic snacks!

Ok…unfortunately not everyone can try my favorite Whole Foods find! It’s a locally made ice cream in Silver Spring, MD (found in my Whole Foods at Washington DC P Street) that is called Mooreno’s. The flavor is honey lavender and I AM OBSESSED! It is amazing! I also love the organic greens mix WF sells (kale, chard, spinach, and I forget the last one…) as well as their in-house spicy Italian turkey sausage!
Ini R says
My favorite thing at Whole Foods would have to be their 365 Everyday Value Organic Pumpkin Spice Lowfat Yogurt!
A trip to Whole Foods pretty much always requires picking out a new treat / snack for me! However, one re-occuring purchase is a gluten free Bobo oat bar . Though those coco-roons look delicious too -- in any or all of the flavors! I’m a big fan of Emmy’s raw macaroons so I’m sure I’d love these as well.
I love the cranberry tuna salad from the deli department at Whole Foods. Peanut Butter and Co’s cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter is another favorite. Other favs are siggi’s icelandic yogurt, larabars and any of the 365 fruit and nut mixes!
I went to the South End Whole Foods recently. It was great! I found these toasted sesame sticks, which add a really awesome crunch to salads. The same trip I found a sesame dressing from a company out of Chillmark MA, which went perfect with them. I had the two of them with spinach, water chestnuts, bean sprouts and grilled chicken. It’s my new favorite salad.
Sara N says
I LOOOOVE the raspberry oat bars from the Whole Food bakery section. They are heavenly!
Victoria S says
I love anything 365. Great way to eat healthy and save some bucks. Their unsweetened vanilla almond milk is so creamy!!
The bulk quinoa and the sushi!
Julie L says
I love the olive bar! So yummy and lots of selection!
I have only been to Whole Foods once and it was amazing. There fruit tasted better than any other super market fruit!
Emily Hartzell says
This isn’t very healthy, but this past weekend I went to our whole foods to pick up some beer, and saw that they had their Three Wishes cabernet sauvignon on sale for $3.49/bottle!! And it was INSANELY good. I also love their Lavender Mint organic deoderant, it smells great and lasts a long while.
I work in consulting so WFM is my go to when I’m on the road to keep things on track, I honestly pick my hotels based on their proximity to Whole Foods. Since each one is different I have some favorite buys based on where I’ve been. STL- Avocado Kale Salad, good lord this was yummy. Kale that basically had a guacamole dressing. Southern CA-Roasted Salmon from the cold bar, Denver- Local Pressery juices!

I’m a Whole Foods sushi fan. Quick, nutritious lunch.
Danielle Kempe (@DJDiG) says
Oh! And Healthy Warrior chia bars! (I stock up on those and keep them in my gym bag for a pre-workout snack.
maritza rivera says
I love their frozen wheat grass juice…have you tried it yet?
I love their roasted whole chickens, especially the plain ones. It’s great for when I’ve been out all day and can just go pick one up, and pair it at home with some fresh vegetables -- very delicious!
I just discovered Beanitos the last time I was at WF! Gluten free bean chips that tastes like baked potato chips… :O
I love Whole Foods Tres Leches cake!!! I nonchalantly sampled it one time at a demo and was amazed at just how delish it is, and have been hooked ever since!!!
