My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is definitely the organic salsa! I love it on turkey burgers and I also had it today on romaine lettuce leaves with avocado! Delicious and good for me. :-) I wish it was sold in the gallon size as I have some everyday.

I love the 365 Electrolyte Enhanced water! It's got such a smoth, crisp taste. I buy it for 2 weeks worth, when ever I'm at the store! its the best water I've tried so far. I used to get really bad allergies when i drank tap water ( even if it was filtered) . Once i changed to bottled water, it quiclky whent away. I tried all different kinds, and so far i LOVE this one! Thanks for making such a great & affordable product :)

My favorite 365 Everyday Value Brand is the Vanilla Rice Milk -luv it!

Kerry says …

NO DOUBT, 365 Chicken Broth!!! I have tried every brand of Organic Chicken Broth, none can hold a candle to it. Most are very fatty or have been over / under seasoned. With 365 there is no fat when cooking (especially in my soup pot) and I can add all my seasonings without hindering the taste from what is in the broth. PERFECT!!!!

Betsy Jones says …

Absolutely love the 365 Columbian coffee. It's better than S-bucks and is a much better value. I often come to Whole Foods just to buy the coffee!

Sean Donovan says …

My favorite is the 365 1% Milk. Can't beat it!

Bernice says …

EVERYTHING! okay, the mac 'n cheese and the cheesy bread stix. gotta love cheese!

Maureen Bailey says …

My favortie 365 Everyday Brand was the organic fresh tasting roasted peanut butter. I couldn't stop eating it! And, the jar was the right size for my smaller counter top. I never tasted such fresh peanut butter before!

Esther Lee says …

milk, honey, produces...

Erica Dawson says …

Almost everything I buy at Whole Foods is from the 365 brand because it's so affordable. I'd have to guess that my favorite 365 product is the organic, canned pinto beans. They're priced just right and taste fantastic. I'm also a huge fan of the bulk section, but I'm not sure if that counts as part of the 365 line...

Theresa DeLaughter says …

I love them all!

melanie says …

hmmm, how about the shampoo and conditioner? love the grapefruit smell..

robin says …

my favorite is the 365 peanut butter. It tastes great and is a good value.

Trisha Sheehan says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the mayonnaise. My grandmother passed away this past year and your mayonnaise is not only healthy and tasty, but it reminds me of my Italian grandmother's homemade mayonnaise. Everytime I eat it I feel like I am a kid sitting in my grandmother's kitchen, enjoying a tomato sandwich with homemade mayonnaise. I can't get enough of it...which reminds me, I need to add it to my shopping list for this week!

Becca says …

I absolutely love the 365 sodas. I have a major sweet tooth and those are way sweeter than any of the name brand sodas. An added bonus is that they don't have any caffiene in them so I don't stay up all night. I also really like the popcorn, I was actually telling one of my friends last night that it's the best popcorn ever and highly addictive.

Ariel says …

A haiku for 365 Everyday Value Tomatillo Salsa: Game Day/Taco Night O Tomatillo Salsa! You always please me

Amy Perkins says …

Went into the new store on State Street, Santa Barbara, very nice. I appreciate all the selection for non-toxic cleaners. I bought the furniture polish you carry and it cleans well without a lot of residue and I liked your seventh generation window cleaner.

Bobby Taylor says …

I love the 365 pinto beans, no salt. Very tender and tasty and great for those watching the sodium intake!!!

Tara Jakubik says …

My favorite 365 Everday Value product is your Organic Green Tea. What awesome quality at an awesome price. I bought 1/2 gallon glass jars and I line 3 of them up with two tea bags in each, fill each with boiling water and some Stevia, and put them in the fridge after they've cooled...it makes GREAT iced tea!

jacquelyn houston says …

your 365 butter is the best ever for my homemade pound cake woo hoo

Barbara N says …

365 Smooth Almond Butter! Oh my god...so delicious! I slather it on everything!

Teresa says …

Without a doubt the spaghetti sauce. It beats any of the other supermarket brands! My family loves it.

david says …

Big fan of the WF private label

Rev. T. G. Williams says …

I am an addicted fan of 365 Crunchy Peanut Butter. I consider myself to be a connoisseur of Peanut Butter and have tried them all...but hands down this is my all time favorite. Whether paired with crackers, spread on apples, stuffed in celery or teamed with the old reliable standby jelly or jam...it stands out and makes my day. Thank goodness for 365 Crunchy Peanut Butter.

John Nesbitt says …

It has to be the extra virgin olive oil!

Al says …

My favorite 365 Organic Product is the Organic Pomegranate Cranberry Green Tea. I swear it has healing properties. When I feel under the weather or need to be energized I have a cup of tea and all is right with the world. It tastes great, makes me feel good, and is VERY inexpensive. It is the best green tea I have ever had.

Kathy Kelleher says …

I love to snack on the 365 organic popcorn (reduced fat & low sodium).

Carolyn Shepherd says …

365 organic rice milk, plain and vanilla for my twins.

Colleen Hall says …

I love the 365 Veggie Chips. I used to be a junk food junkie and any kind of chips has long been my downfall but these saved me. Thank you!

Beatriz says …

Using Everyday 365 wax paper to wrap sandwiches for family and friends always leaves a nostalgic impression... the caramel color give a feeling of times past, along with being sturdy and reliable.

Katherine says …

I love the 365 plain fat free yogurt (indiv. cups - only 59 cents each!! - and large container), the 365 nut butters (all varieties), the 365 marinara sauces (great value, great taste) and all of the different 365 herbal supplements, vitamins, etc. (great selection/quality).

Sheridan says …

Nothing's better than the deal on 365 soy and rice milk. It's a great price for a great product. And it's so wonderful in so many recipes. I made a homemade cognac mushroom 'cream' sauce for the turkey I served last week and it was enjoyed by all!

JoAnn Villavicencio says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the semi-sweet chocolate chips. They taste just like the chocoalte chips my mother used when I was a kid and she made chocolate chip cookies. They're the best. (Great for eating out of the bag, too!)

chris says …

Our family loves the 365 orange juice with calcuim. My husband loves to have a glass every morning and I love that he isn't getting any extra sweetners or unnatural color additives!

Jann Gest says …

My favorite 365 EVB product is the chocolate chips. They are safe to eat for my child who is allergic to dairy, a great price and delicious.

JJ Lopes says …

I love the natural 365 Bibita Naturale de Italia Tangerine flavour. It tastes so good that my family is hooked in it. I wish the Canadian Stores would carry it.

Marian Fairman says …

It's the chicken broth. I love the chicken broth. Use it in all my soups. It's excellent!

Jennifer and Mark says …

We love the olive oil and gluten free sandwich bread mix and honey. I just wish your store was closer to my house.

Mark Elzinga says …

I like the dry spices and the 365 soy milk

Winnie says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the Chunk Light Tongol Tuna (Spring Water). I use it in Tuna Casserole, the kids love it, and even my husband, who is not a Tuna fan, thoroughly enjoys it.

Lydia says …

My absolute FAVE is the 365 balsamic vinegar, especially this time of year. My fave use is to cut up butternut squash and put it on a cookie sheet. I drizzle it with Olive oil, sea salt and balsamic vinegar and roast it. The balsamic almost candies it and it's so crazy delicious. I've been on a mission for my fave balsamic for years, and this is it!! xo, Lydia

James Gottschalk says …

Definitely the citrus shampoo. Wow. I used some of my room mate's before, however I can't find it now; my local WF only has the lavender. Bring back the citrus!

Rochelle mills says …

My 365 value product is your brown rice

Judith Johnson says …

We like many of the 365 products, but I'd have to say our newest favorite is the Organic Beef Jerky. My 2 kids are both very high-energy and very active. After school we were all-to-often headed to drive-thrus for a quick snack before the next activity. In effort to be healthier, I looked for a snack with these requirements: quick, healthy, portable, no refrigeration required (it had to ride in the car for different amounts of time) and not messy! So now, I grab apples, 365 Spring Water and the 365 Organic Beef Jerky and GO! The kids absolutely love it and it gives them a protein boost so they can do gymnastics, karate, tennis, swimming and even homework! Thanks!!!

Jessica says …

Without a doubt the 365 Organic Pinto Beans- Ready to serve. One product that I can't live without. I make them together with some spanish yellow rice...Delicious!!

maria tender says …

365 veggie spring rolls

angelynng says …

I love the 365 Organic Ketchup. Great tangy taste, just as good as what you remember from childhood, but without excessive salt or sugar.

Lori London says …

My favorite product is Israeli couscous. My kids think it is fun to eat. I like to use different kinds of broth to cook it in, rather than just water. You can get all sorts of flavors this way. YUM-O

Lauren says …

My favorite 365 Product is the big bottles of lotion in Lavender! I use it everyday and it last forever!

Cristina Pierce says …

Hi Whole Foods! It's hard to choose because there are so many great 365 Everyday Value products to choose from. One that I used just this week and LOVED is your kidney beans, absolutely delicous and salt free too. I made a chili and added 2 cans of them, we were thrilled with the flavor and everything about them. Thank you for making such great affordable products. Cristina Pierce
