My favorite 365 products: whole wheat pasta, fat-free tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil, unsweetened soy milk, and sugar-free crunchy peanut butter. I buy those same five items every single week.

I love the Valencia Orange Juice!I bought some last night!Not only is it good alone, but it is great in recipes! I use in cheescake, cocktails, french toast, chicken dishes, pies, salad dressings, homemade sorbets, smoothies & so much more! It is amazing how something so simple can have so many uses! I love the fact that this juice is fresh & not from concentrate, it makes a huge difference because I know the nurtition has not been removed & then added for compensation. I also just love Valencia Oranges! Amazing bright flavor! This product makes me happy & this is why it is my favorite!

365 unscented body wash. After years of chronic dry skin and dermatologist visits, prescription creams, etc... I took a chance and tried your product. WOW! No more dry, itchy skin. Never, ever, stop making this product. Bless you Whole Foods!!

I have been a HUGE fan of 365 Black Cherry soda since discovering it years ago. I don't drink alcohol and find that I am always bringing 365 Black Cherry soda to parties for my beverage of choice. I have noticed that I really need to bring two six packs along now. Other party guests inevitably ask, "What's that?" and try it and love it! The flavor is crisp and clean and satisfying. I love that it's clear and without high fructose corn syrup! It's just perfect! Some of the other flavors of 365 soda make it home with me as well. I love the Orange Cream and the Cherry Cream. They satisfy my sweet tooth without eating dessert!

I have to say it's the Cranberry Peach Juice. Sooooo delicious! It makes me as giddy as a school girl.

I use your 365 Crunchy Peanut Butter to make the best ever Gluten Free Peanut Butter cookies. The 365 Crunchy Peanut butter has exactly the right size crunchies to make a fantastic peanut butter cookie with a rich peanut butter taste. Here is how to do it: Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix 1 beaten egg with 1 cup 356 Crunchy Peanut Butter and 1/2 to 1 cup sugar. (*Note - adjust sugar to taste or use another favorite sweetener) Add 1 cup of chocolate chips or raisins if desired. Make 1" balls and place on cookie sheet. Press a fork across the dough balls in one direction and then the other to flatten with the traditional Peanut Butter cookie pattern or flatten with a flat bottomed glass. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool and enjoy. Keep your eye on these cookies they have a way of disappearing in no time at all!

Virginia says …

The sugar! It's organic and inexpensive

I absolutely love the 365 Everyday Value Citrus shampoo and conditioner. It works so well on my crazy curly hair! My DH also loves the 365 Everyday Value unscented body wash. It's been a wonderful find - he has asthma that can be triggered by fragrence, and so much body wash does! We just have a shower full of 365 products!

Ella says …

I love the 365 Peanut butter. Great taste, good value.

Susan says …

My absolute very favorite Everyday Value item is, without a doubt, the organic Beef & Spinach Ravioli. It is perfect for my 15 month old who will not eat vegetables. He gets his carbs, protein & vegetable all in one and it makes things easy on Mom!

Kimberly Johnson says …

My favorite 365 item at Whole Foods is, 365 Spelt bread! There's nothing better, as for as bread is concerned!!! Please don't stop making it!!! Thank you! :-)

Justin says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the vanilla ice cream!

Robin Moratti says …

I would have to say that my Favorite 365 Everyday Value product has to be 365 Organic "Organic Diced tomatoes" and 365 "Diced Tomatoes with green Chilies". They are the base to my Yummy Hearty Tortilla Soup. The tomatoes in each can are perfect! The Green chilies add a little bit of a "Kick" that the adults love but is not too overpowering for the small kids! Thanks for making these items. I able to make a WONDERFUL Organic Restaurant style Tortilla Soup, that's healthy and TASTES GREAT!!!!!!

Scott Bruno says …

365 Organic Hot Sauce!!! I have 10 bottles of this stuff in my cubbard now! I put the sauce on anything and everything. Great on pizza, eggs, chicken, you name it...This has to be the best hot sauce ever made! Thank you 365

Stephanie says …

I love so many of the 365 Everyday Value products. Especially the ones that remind me of my childhood like the peanut butter and frozen mac and cheese. So yummy! My favorite value though is the organic chicken broth. I use it all the time!

I love the 365 canned beans with NO SALT ADDED! Keeps us healthier with less salt in our diet!

I love the 365-Everyday Value health and beauty products. Where else can you find health and beauty products that have effective quality ingredients at amazing prices! My favorite is the Lavender Blend Body Lotion. It has real lavender oil (amongst a ton of other great oils that are good for your skin) and it's under $5.00 for 32 ounces!

Robin Scott says …

Your Tongol Tuna is the best .It doesn't smell fishy when you open the can it smells like the ocean and tastes clean ! I love it.

Samantha says …

I LOVE your organic vanilla powdered coffee creamer, especially because traditional creamers are not at all healthy. It's DELICIOUS!

Becky says …

My favorite is the 365 frozen mango chunks. They're so convenient and tasty to eat as a midnight snack or for breakfast smoothies! I always stock up on them every week.

My son has numberous food allergies and has tried many brands of wheat, dairy, and egg free products. But, his favorite soymilk and soynut butter is the 365 brand. Everytime we go to his doctor in Cleveland, we stop and shop - he also enjoys finding prepared foods he can eat!

Denise says …

I love the Whole Foods own line of 365 haircare and beauty products. I've started using your 365 Everyday Value Shampoo in Lavendar and my hair is so soft and shiny! Plus the scent reminds me of the South of France.

Hannah says …

I love the organic tomato paste! I almost never purchase anything in a can, but when I make pizza sauce from scratch, the deliciously consistent 365 organic tomato paste is a life-saver!

ALLISON says …

I love the 365 1% milk! its cheaper than the grocery store brands and way more delicious!

The 365 Everyday Value Creamy Peanut Butter is the best PB that I've ever tasted in my life! My husband and I use it all the time on sandwiches, crackers, bananas, or just by itself!

maureen campbell says …

We LOVE the 365 Lavender Shower Gel!! It's a great product and a great value for our family of 6. We used to live right down the road from Whole Foods but moved about a half hour away. We now pick up 3 or 4 of the large bottles when ever we go back to the old neighborhood.(another bonus is it doesn't leave behind that nasty soap scum) LOVE IT!

Betty Dickinson says …

I love your 365 Everyday Value Canned Pumpkin! I use it for my Mom's pumpkin pie recipe, BUT your 15oz ALL pumpkin puts her recipe in an all-new,even yummier category!

365 Sesame Rice Crackers Dip some in hummus, and you're on your way to ecstasy.

Laura Miller says …

How do I pick just one favorite?! I love inexpensive, organic vegan food and the 365 brand carries plenty of that! I especially love the organic soy milk! I use the vanilla for drinking, and the original for cooking and baking. My fiance and I always use it in our banana & flaxseed pancakes and in vegan macaroni. It is so delicious, and such a good price!

Debra T. says …

I love the 365 Brand Lavender Blend Shampoo, Conditioner, and Shower Gel! I loved the classic Herbal blend too - maybe you could bring that scent back?

Danielle says …

Definitely the olive oil. I use it so often in cooking, mostly to saute and roast veggies.

CC says …

I love the 365 cereal bars...the mixed berry is my favorite. They're organic and sooo much cheaper than their organic counterparts.

Shelley Buckholtz says …

My husband and love the 365 coffee. We are both regular and decaf coffee lovers. We live in the land of coffee, that is Seattle, so our endorsement of the 365 coffee is a big one. We believe the 365 coffee is just as good as Starbucks or the many varieties of coffee you will find here in Seattle. Thank you for a great inexpensive quality coffee.

Ryanne Hampshire says …

My favorite product is the extra virgin coconut oil!! Hands down it is the tastiest I have ever had, it even stands up to the more expensive name brands. I use it for everything, make up removal, smoothies, skin moisturizer! Hell, my dog even like a little spoonful now and then! Great Stuff!

Neely says …

We LOVE the organic fiesta blend shredded cheese. We use it for mexican pizzas, enchiladas, tacos, in chicken fajita soup, quesadillas.

Brooke Byers says …

My fav is the 365 Everyday Value Herbal Mint Shampoo & Conditioner. I use them religiously and won't buy any other brand for my hair! I love the fact that they're paraben free! Thank you!

denise petersen says …

I love the 4 different 365 Olive Oils-Spanish, Greek, Australian & Italian. I also think the 365 Pizza line is fabulous! And the Wild-Caught Sockeye Salmon Filets in the freezer-one of the best deals in the whole store! The new packaging is looking great!

Amy says …

I love love love the Peanut Butter Pows breakfast cereal!!

Amanda says …

365 Center Cut Bacon, 365 no salt Tongol Tuna, 365 Light Agave Nectar and 365 Cashew Butter are great additions to my diet which is limited by gluten and corn intolerances. Being able to enjoy some favorite foods that are "safe" and cheaper than in my hometown grocery store is worth the extra drive, so I tend to stock up on them when I go to Whole Foods 20 mins away. Thank you for carrying good, honest food without all the additives and derivatives that make food intolerances nearly intolerable sometimes!

Jill Beniak says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value is the canned dog food. It's one of only two brands of wholesome canned dog food my Champion bloodhound will eat. The other brand is nearly 4.00 a can so at 1/4 of the price I can keep my beautiful boy in show shape. He is a very picky eater and until I found this I had a hard time getting him to eat.

Melissa Leuschel says …

The 365 Coconut oil - it's delicious and with an equally appealing price! :)

Jennifer Calabro says …

I LOVE the olive oil! I use it every day in most of my cooking! It's a definite must-have in my kitchen!

Marisela Flores says …

I love the 365 Sea Salt. I it has a wonderful texture and I use it on everything.
