My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the crunchy organic peanut butter. Love it!

Katherine Smith says …

It is so hard to narrow it down, I love (and buy) a lot of the 365 products, but I would say one of the more frequent purchase is bread. I have to go to Whole Foods to find bread with no high fructose corn syrup, and the 365 brand lets me get it at a decent price.

i use and love a number of the 365 products, but i recently bought the orange vanilla rooibos tea, which is great! we had it iced this summer, and it was lovely on its own but also great to mix with juice to cut the caloric intake from straight-up juice. yum!

Jamie S. says …

I have to pick just one? That's pretty hard. The 365 Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a staple in our home. I am pretty sure I don't leave the store without a bottle, ever. I use it for all my cooking and entertaining. When we have friends drop by I pour some out in a saucer and add some spices and herbs. The guest rave about the flavor. THANKS FOR THE GREAT PRODUCT!

Jessica Taylor says …

I love lots of them... but I think my favorite might be your delicious caffiene and high fructose corn syrup free cola.

Deanna says …

Hands down it's the lip balm. It's the best I've ever used and I always pick up multiple tubes practically every time I'm in the store. I have them stashed all over the house. Living in a dry climate it's a must and it REALLY works!!

elizabeth says …

the golden round crackers and the saltine crackers too, theyre the best!

Lori S. says …

My son loves the 365 everyday value cereal bars. And at $1.67 a box, I think they are a bargain!

Megs says …

My favourite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the olive oil!

Kyra says …

We buy the original 365 soy milk by the case. Its a great value and is not chalky like many other soy milks.

Jennifer Bowyer says …

Our favorite product is the 365 Gluten Free Bread Mix. It is amazing. It tastes so much like real bread it is unbelieveable. If you are Gluten Free, you have to try it!

Thien-Kim says …

I love the 365 Whole Wheat Flour. I bake my bread as often as possible (with the help of my breadmaker). It's budget friendly and makes great bread.

Katie says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the whole wheat flour to make yummy pancakes and waffles from scratch!

leslie says …

My faves are: bagged sunflower seeds, semi-sweet choco chips, olive oil and sparkling water!!! THe list could go on!

Erin says …

Pick one? Oh dear...What about top three? 1) 365 organics Vanilla Honey Lip Balm-$1.99. Long lasting moisturizing, no suspect ingredients, smells fantastic. Way better than any of the "fancy" brands. 2) 365 Ketchup. Really. I never thought I would rave about a packaged ketchup, but this is so good. 3) 365 sandwich breads-Birdland and Snappy Sourdough are in my cart every week. Great price, love the texture-a great balance of softness and chew.

Blakely says …

The 365 Grapefruit body wash is just delightful. I buy the big bottles and hope to never run out.

Kim says …

I love the 365 brand Almond Butter. I use it for snacks - serve with green apple wedges and celery!

Helen says …

I come to WFM regularly for the 365 Everyday Value 5lb organic carrots. They are great eaten raw with a dressing, or grated for baking into cookies and cakes, or chopped for soups and stews. When I run out of carrots it's time to go to Whole Foods again!

Sylvia B says …

I absolutely love the 365 cheese puffs. No trans-fats, you can't get better than that!

Meg Bressette says …

My absolute favorite-must have 365 products are the Shampoo, Conditioners and Shower Gel. I love the Lavender and the fragrance free and when I travel I make sure that I visit a WFM so that I can have them with me. I plan on trying the Grapefruit/Citrus scented one next to help perk me up in the mornings! Thanks for making such great products!

Sylvia says …

I absolutely love the 365 Cheese Puffs! No trans-fat makes them even more appealing.

Jane says …

I love the extra EVOO, and use it almost daily.

Eric Lang says …

my favorite is the coconut oil, I use it daily, it imparts so much wonderful coconut flavor, and because of which, it makes the most amazing taffy ever!

Beth Granai says …

I LOVE the 365 Organic Whole Wheat Pizza shells - goes great with Outta the Park BBQ Sauce to make a delicious BBQ chicken pizza. Also, love 365 Natural Peanut Butter, 365 Olive Oil, 365 Shredded Cheeses, and the 365 Peppermints. All are staples in my house!

Van Daniel says …

Roasted Sesame Oil: thank you for that! I also want to thank you for your sodas; I rarely have soda, but when I do have the craving, it is quite nice to be able to pay the same price as any name brand yet receive a delicious, superior product made from cane sugar and not HFCS. Be well.

Kathy Raveau says …

My favorite 365 product is the Mayonnaise. I love it because it's EXPELLER PRESSED and that is much better for you.

Lynnet says …

Our favorite 365 product is the Pasta sauce. I just recently discovered the 365 products, and Whole Foods, while in search of products which were free of high fructose corn syrup and gluten. We have absolutely LOVED everything we have tried thus far. Thanks for giving us so many high quality products to choose from. We look forward to trying all the other 'favorites' that I have just read about.

Linda Shepard Salzer says …

My husband and I were talking recently about the fact that we should buy the 365 tins of diced tomatoes by the case since we use so many of them. If we get down to four tins, we add them to the shopping list. We use them in everything from Shepherd's salad and Armenian lentil soup to homemade pasta and pizza sauce. We buy them because of the quality, price, and year-round availability.

Misty Bazan says …

I love the 365 Everyday Olive Oil, goes a long way and taste great. This is a must in my kitchen. Price is great for my budget!

Debbie Chum says …

I love the Veggie Straws b/c my son loves to snack on them and they're easy to eat, hold and chew for little hands and mouths.

Leslie Bush says …

I Love the whole wheat pizza crust!!we also use the extra virgin olive oil all the time!!

Dannella Reynolds says …

We love the 365 Vanilla Rice Milk! Both of our sons have had food allergies since birth, and have been limited to what they can eat and drink. This is a nice treat for them, and they actually love the taste of it! They are ages 3 and 2, so you can imagine how hard it is to find things two toddlers actually love, and both at the same time! We are regular shoppers at Whole Foods for a lot of your other 365 products also, but this is one of the best!

Yvonne Mitchell says …

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 365 corn. It's the closet thing I've tasted to fresh off the cob!!

Destinee Maxfield says …

The 365 chap sticks. I got them in a 3 pack last year for Christmas and love them! It's hard to keep my daughter from stealing them from me :)

Liz says …

The 365 Organic Hot Sauce is the best! It has a fantastic - hot, but not too hot - flavor and is great to add some spice to sauces.

Andrew Martin says …

My favorite has to be the 365 yogurt, it's always $2-3 cheaper to ANYTHING comparative. That's GOOD savings!

Amy says …

oh, it's so hard to pick just one . . . we like the olive oil and balsamic vinegar a lot. and, we love your shampoos and shower gels!

Terri Murray says …

My all-time favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is every product in the body care line; shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and lotion. When I discovered that not only are they affordable (and competitive on that level) there is no tea laury sulfate! Amazing that we can get truly "natural" bodycare. I am 100% sold on these products and hope you never discontinue them!!!! Once I discovered them I began to tell my loved ones immediately - what good news to share!!!

Vanessa Cosenza says …

I love the mighty multigrain bread! It's great for breakfast and is also packaged well. I make some awesome sandwiches with this!

Kamran Haikal says …

you can't ever go wrong with the 365 milk. the basic necessity without all the rBST and the peace of mind that the cows weren't milked to death :)

Kay says …

365 Honey Mustard is to DIE FOR!!

Michelle Kwajafa says …

My favorite is definately the olive oil! Besides being wonderful for cooking, it's great for my skin! I buy a small bottle with a jar of the Rose and Cinnamon bath salts available locally in Baltimore and DC, and pour the olive oil into the jar of salts to create a luxurious body scrub that smells divine, is super moisturizing, and half the price of a store bought scrub!

Katja Moos says …

The 365 organic tea bags in the big square boxes. I always have a box of black, a box of yerba mate green, and a box of green at home. They're great value, there are enough in each box, so a daily tea drinker like me doesn't have to run out all the time, they're very yummy, good quality every day teas, and -best of all- organic!!

elysia nelson says …

I love the 365 organic coconut milk! We buy the 365 brand all the time and are always happy with it!!

Barbara says …

Desert Flower Organic Facial Care: Pomegranate Face Serum. I never would have found this creme if you hadn't made it a Value Product. I had become alergic to every face creme I tried. And I can use this every day with out problems. Thank you so much. Barbara

Vickie Harvey says …

Seaweed Rice Crackers. My husband and I both love them. Can't keep them in the house!

Aimee Boyd says …

I love the hot sauces. I put hot sauce on everything. With some of my old work friends a rule for bringing your lunch was if you could put hot sauce on it or not - that is how we determined if it was a worthy lunch or not.

Tracey says …

I love your creamy almond butter. It is the best value compared to other stores that sell creamy almond butter. I spread it on my Ezekial toast or eat with an apple. Thanks! Tracey

Beth says …

No question - the balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing. It is fantastic.
