My favorite item from 365 is the chicken broth soup. It really warms you up, and is soo tasty. With all of the sickness going around i feel that it really helps me ward off the germs.

365 EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, GOSH WE USE THIS IN EVERYTHING WE COOK! IT IS ONE OF THE BEST ALL AROUND VALUES! ONE OF OUR BEST USES IS IN OUR BREAD DIPPING OILS, THE FLAVOR IS AWESOME!

Christy Dean says …

I love all of your products but lately my favorite is your 365 organic peanut butter!

Abdullah Elasmar says …

I love the every value 365 shampoo and conditioner!

Katrina says …

My favorite 365 product is actually the chipotle salsa! Moving from the south to the north, we really miss our spicy, spicy salsa from restaurants. After scouring all over Boston, I was happy to finally find what I was looking for from whole foods! Now if whole foods could just bring us some restaurant queso...

Patrick says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the whole wheat pasta.

Kathy White says …

I have been enormously satisfied with every 365 brand product I have purchased! One of my favorites is the 365 Chunky Almond Butter. I especially like to spread this almond butter on top of a toasted piece of whole grain bread...oh, so good! :)

Jennifer Douwes says …

I love the chocolate. Both the milk and the dark chocolate are wonderful.

KeithKNOWS says …

This is not easy, I have so many favorites. I narrowed it down to the Blueberry Cereal bars, they are yummy, low fat, low sodium, nutrition packed, a great on the go snack. Whew! that was tough, so many great products. (smile)

Stefanie Schmidt says …

My favorite 365 whole foods product is the microwave popcorn because it is so delicious and a healthy snack. I take a box to work and have it in the afternoons to get me through the day. It is the perfect answer to a snack attack and fills me up without the guilt of a lot of calories and fat.

Jamie says …

365 wasabi rice crackers are the bomb!! Eat them plain or with any dip!

Angela says …

365 Chocolate Ice Cream How I use it: B R I B E R Y. I put a very small about, about an 1/8 cup, on a Gluten Free Cone and my 4yr old son thinks it is the biggest desert ever. The container lasts for a few weeks (unless mom and dad indulge) and he gobbles up all his vegetables.

Diana Tumashova says …

My favorite product is definitely the 365 chocolate soy milk.

Amy Ulland says …

We love your 365 Everyday Value organic cheeses! My 2 year old specifically requests "the good cheeses" whenever we go!

Jocelyn says …

The 365 Ketchup is the absolute best tasting ketchup! And, it has none of the HFCS or other artificial additives of the "other brand name" ketchup. We use it for everything. It is a great way to get your daily serving of lycopene!

Amy Ulland says …

We love your 365 Everyday Value organic cheeses! My 2 year old specifically requests "the good cheeses" whenever we go! We eat it with fruit for a great snack.

Meghan says …

Peanut butter!! I buy the giant containers and use it for peanut butter & apples (my favorite snack) and peanut butter/honey sandwiches! It's the one thing that I always, without exception, have in my kitchen.

Sandra says …

I really like the 365 Everyday Value Organic Balsamic Vinegar!

Amy Cummings says …

Back before I made the switch to more natural/organic products, I thought dessert couldn't get much better than a glass of milk and a few Oreo cookies. Boy was I wrong- Your 365 Everyday organic milk and all-natural chocolate sandwich cookies blew my old routine out of the water- so much better than the "original" and approximately the same price for a healthier take on an old standby. THANK YOU for these products!!

Juli Dressler says …

The 365 everyday value olive oil is the best I've ever used, and Cooks Illustrated agrees with me :) it consistently wins their blind taste tests, and even my husband (who is hardly a gourmand) knows when I use a different oil to dress the salad!

Betina says …

Gotta love the Olive Oil. There are so many others too but it great when trying to cook healthy and the cost is wonderful.

Michelle says …

I have two favorites! The olive oil and the quinoa. Especially the quinoa, because other brands are so expensive! Quinoa is so nutritious, containing all 8 essential amino acids and tons of protein!

Julie Jones says …

My fave Everyday Value product is the BBQ Chicken pizza. Yum! Great quick and easy dinner for me and hubby.

John D says …

When you come to Peoria, IL, I'll be glad to try some out!

Jennifer says …

My favorite is the mac and cheese! It is a family favorite, I like it better than the "original" brand!

Terry says …

The 365 Electrolyte Enhanced Water is great tasting, refreshing, and a fantastic value. I haven't tried the olive oil, but apparently I need to.

Ryan McAnulty says …

We use the 365 olive oil just about every night! The great thing about it is, you can't really tell a difference between 365 and a more expensive brand.

Debra says …

I love the 365 Everyday Value lavender body wash!

Fran says …

LOVE the Citrus Grapefruit Shower Gel! Smells so yummy -- what a great way to wake up!

Nicole says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the maple syrup!

Bree Nelson says …

365 Organic Chunky Peanut Butter! It's THE best peanut butter ever!

Shannon says …

There are many 365 products we love but one of my favorite are the dried spices- especially the medium ground black pepper and oregano. I use both in just about everything..the pepper is a nice alternative to the fine ground sprinkled on a fresh green salad...

Ruby says …

Our favorite 365 food is the Fruit strips. It is getting harder and harder to find them as I think you all are phasing them out.

Corissa says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is definitley the Peppermint Lip Balm! I have them stashed in different spots all over my house. I have tried so many other kinds of lip balm, and this is seriously my favorite.

Aimee says …

The oils! we keep olive and safflower as staples.

L.L. says …

i absolutely love your 365 glycerin soaps. The ingredients are pure. It's nondrying and best of all, very reasonably priced!

Dave Flanagan says …

I love the 365 crunchy peanut butter, olive oil, pastas, all of it Dave

Mark Miller says …

Almond butter...hands down!!! I literally eat it 365 days. Ok, maybe 362 just because of holidays. However, it's really great. Thanks Whole Foods.

Jan Schroedter says …

My favorite product is the 365 lite popcorn. Yummy!

Rhea Cooper says …

By far, my most FAVORITE 365 product is the Ginger Ale! The best pop EVER!

Ralph Barnes says …

I concur on the 365 olive oil; it has become one of the mainstay logos of our kitchen.

Jennifer says …

My favorite 365 product is the coffee. It is such a great value and I love that there are so many choices of roasts.

Amy says …

I am head over heels in love with the 365 Grapefruit Shampoo. Amazing summer scent that I use year round. It wakes me up every day. And from what I can see, from the other commenters, I'm definitely not the only lover!

Joanne says …

There are a few great 365 products we have switched over to in the past several months and are well pleased with, so it's hard to pick just one. We really like the Mint Shower Wash, but I'd say I'm most surprised by the great quality and good price of 365 Stevia packets. I will definately try more in the future.

Erin S. says …

The 365 Hand Sanitizer in Lavender is my FAVORITE product. I have a bottle by the sink, diaper station, in car, all over the place. It is the nicest-smelling hand sanitizer in the world and leaves my hands feeling soft as well. Thanks!!!

Carrie Woolf says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the coffee. It is a remarkably better value than any other organic coffees out there! A better value than some other non-organic coffees as well!!!

Stephen says …

One family favorite is the 365 lavender shower gel..love the smell and it is much cheaper than the comparable name brands shower gels you sell.

Aaron Allen says …

My favorite 365 product is the Extra-Firm Tofu. As a non-meat eater I go through this stuff like it's going out of style! Absolutely love it.

colleen bedrosian says …

i love the 365 everyday value brand ginger ale and the blueberry cereal bars.

Mark says …

My favortie 365 product is the microwave popcorn. It is the perfect snack for watching movies.
