Think your 365 Italian dressing is delicious and a great value price wise!

Who could choose only one?! I LOVE the 365 Organic Chicken Stock. I use it almost daily. Then, there's the 365 brand Vegan Chocolate Chips!!! For my daughter who's gluten/casein intolerant, these are a WONDERFUL treat. Then, there's the 365 brand of Vitamins; high quality product that I find superior to any name brand.

Jill says …

Love the pasta (spagetti) sauces. Find they taste great and are very economical.

Erika Toftness says …

My favorite is definitely the Woman's Multi-Vitamin. A good multi-vitamin that doesn't make me sick like Centrum!

David A says …

I love the 365 Chicken Stock - both the sodium and sodium-free ones. (The sodium one tastes better, but I like the sodium-free one because it has chicken fat in them!) I like them because they have no MSG and seem to have less additives than the more expensive brands! I make tom kha gai out of them - I mix about half a container of broth, a few tablespoons of Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk (that stuff is potent - you don't need a whole lot of it) and chicken and vegetables and lemongrass. When I don't have lemongrass, I use sorrel - gives it just as good of a lemony flavor.

Stephanie says …

I love so many 365 products, but particularly the olive oil

maria says …

I love the 365 pasta.

Sara Frechette says …

I love the 365 Everyday Value brand whole-grain penne pasta. It is delicious without the cardboard-like taste of so many other brands. My favorite way to use it is in a shrimp and veggie stirfry. Lots of garlic, of course!

I disliked peanut butter until I discovered the 365 Organic Chunky Peanut Butter unsalted. It was creamy and crunchy, not too sweet, naturally salty but not too much. Just perfect roasted peanut goodness. I was hooked and we went through 2 jars a week in my home. Then, it disappeared from store shelves. I tried other crunchy organic kinds hoping to find a substitute. Nope. Haven't had peanut butter since. My current 365 favorite is the Organic Whole Wheat Penne Pasta. i'd tried several brands of whole wheat pasta looking to transition away from white flour. But most tasted bitter, took very long to cook and had a chewy texture even when fully cooked. Then I found the 365 version - has the most subtly nutty flavor, cooks beautifully, fills you up better than white pasta and leaves you feeling lighter than white pasta. whoa! The other night i cooked it with a white parmesan asiago sauce. i topped it with some organic chicken breast, and a mix of veggies i had in the fridge - carrots, broccoli, and tomatoes - all sauted with roasted garlic and italian dressing. easy to make. and very popular - i had no leftovers! p.s whole foods head honchos, if you're reading this, bring back the pb please. it'll kill my diet, but oh i'd love some with nutella right now!

robin potter says …

365 TOFU - is delicious, fresh, low cal, no fat, high protein.

Emily C says …

My favorite 365 product is the 365 Everyday Value Garbanzo Beans No Salt Added. They are cheap, healthy, a great source of protein and are so versatile - I make hummus, saute them with zucchini, red onion, jalapeno and a spoonful of ketchup and eat them in corn tortillas, or I make a cold salad with garbanzo beans, carrots, tomatoes, olives, lemon, shaved parmesan, and olive oil. I bring the salad to work for lunch all the time and just vary the ingredients I throw in there!

Kathryn Rose says …

My favorite 365 product is the organic canned coconut milk--the texture and taste is better than most on the market, as is the price.

Jonna Allen says …

I absolutely LOVE the 365 wildflower organic honey! I use it to bake my cakes, cookies, and lucious desserts! I also use it as a skin care product, by putting it on my face and patting it till it becomes tacky and really sticky and no longer runs. Then, I rinse it off with very warm water, and my skin just glows like a red rose! I am 45 and people think that I am 22! Do not ever stop making this honey!

Molly Dawson says …

My favorite is the 32 oz. Nonfat Vanilla Yogurt. It's great with blueberries and a cut banana mixed in. I have it as a snack every day!

bvlgari says …

The organic coarsely milled flaxseeds, it's the perfect amendment to any healthly meal. The flaxseeds retain their nutritional potential and maximize absorption.

Lucy Garner says …

Our favorite 365 products are the cheese puffs/cheese curls. They taste great, have no icky additives that my kids don't need, and they are less than half of what the name brand costs at the mainstream grocery stores!

Kory says …

Nothing and I mean nothing beats the 365 ORANGE JUICE !!! It's amazing it tastes as though someone just squeezed it into the carton before I bought it, and it's not too acidy - I haven't had any other orange juice for about 2 yrs!

Cady says …

grapefruit shampoo. great price and great scent.

Susan Zuckerman says …

I love the 365 soy and brown rice drinks. They are ymmy, inexpensive, and, of course, don't have any of those yucky milk sugars.

Gwen says …

I so love the 365 Olive oil! It's such a great value since I can use it to take the place of so many other expensive products. Our family uses it for all sorts of things, from removing makeup, cooking, to combating dry hair! It's a GREAT hair care treatment to combat the dry air we have here in Colorado. We, of course, use it for all our cooking projects. We especially LOVE it as the base oil for huge bowls of popcorn on movie watching night! I'll be trying more of these lower cost products!

Emel says …

My favorites 365 Evertyday Values are olive oil, fava bean and of course salmon. I MEAN FRESH SALMON WITH OLIVE OIL DELICIOUUSS. Fava bean is only one place carries in town is the whole foods market. The Whole Foods Market always have some valuable items.I would not make it without stop by at least once a week to see get your special valued salmon or other products. Thanks, Emel

Christine Pierre says …

My favorite use to be the 365 Soy Cream you all use to carry in the 1/2 gallon size. Now that you don't carry them anymore, my favorite is the 365 crackers because as a vegan you can't always find crackers that doesn't have something that you can't have and the sodium content is very good. I really like most of the 365 products because as I said as a vegan I find a lot of these products doesn't have dairy and I found it hard to find products with unbleached flour and things like that. So I like most of them.

Pam Smith says …

My favorite 365 brand product is your peanut butter. If I'm not cooking with it or putting it on crackers, I just eat it out of the container.
