I'm so excited to hear about Saffron Road's Halal options! This Ramadan I would love to try Lamb Koftis and Chicken Tikka Masala because they sound amazing. But if i won, I'd try all the tasty sounding dishes so i can experience them all and pick my favorite! Ramadan Kareem!

Sweet! I love that Whole Foods now has halal meat. I want to try the Chicken Tenders cause they look tendericious. :-) I shouldn't be looking at all this good food while fasting. :P

I can't believe the news reports that right wing bloggers are attacking the idea of providing high quality products that meet the qualifications of religious (Islamic) dietary restrictions. Please do not cave to these backward fanatical elements. Keep providing this delicious and nutritious food.

Lamb Vindaloo! I love Indian food, especially spicy. And this entree will fit the bill very nicely. Thank you.

I would love to try all of these to be honest (and most likely will). But I think I will bee-line to the Chicken Tikka Masala and Moroccan Lamb first. Thanks WFM for venturing into Halal foods. It is a kind, thoughtful gesture and I'm sure it will pay off.

Hi everyone, We’d like to address the many comments regarding the promotion of halal products in our stores. We are still carrying and promoting halal products for those that are celebrating Ramadan this month. We never sent a communication from our headquarters requesting that stores take down any signs or remove any part of this promotion. We have 12 different operating regions and unfortunately, one region reacted to some negative online comments by sending out directions to promote halal certified foods and not specifically the holiday of Ramadan. We’re extremely excited about offering a selection of halal products for our shoppers and we stand behing them AND our promotion of them.

I'm currently working on convincing my dad (who's out grocery shopping) to check out the Whole Foods by our house and buy some of these entrees. First choice is easy! Moroccan Stew here I come.

I commend your move to expand your halad selection. You have definitely won my dollars and support despite the few bigots who would want you to be racist and hateful of other religions.

Thank you Whole foods for introducing this Halal range.This news is the best gift to us.We eat only halal meat.We always wanted to try Thai and European cuisines with chicken,lamb or beef but we were unable to (since they are mostly made with non halal meat).The alternate was a compromise home cooked attempt at these.However this is a blessing.I most certainly will like to try pad thai ,lemongrass basil chicken first.God Bless You!

@Jonathan Freed Since both Halal and Kosher are religious dietary laws, a religious leader would be better suited to answer your question about specific similarities and differences between the two.

Thank you so much for offering halal foods for Muslim customers like me, and thank you for thinking of us this Ramadan. Never let xenophobia get in the way of your integrity and social conscience.

Chicken Nuggets all the way! As a Muslim, I barely get to eat chicken nuggets, which is sad because it is such a typical American side dish. I know of only one other company that has halal chicken nuggets so this is definitely something I would buy from Saffron Road. I also have a blog dedicated to Orange County and geared towards Muslims and this would be such a hit with my readers-Whole Foods Offers Halal Products! =)

That Moroccan Lamb stew looks and sounds amazing. If it tastes half as good as the marketing has made it appear, I should be in for a real treat.

I'm married to a thai and so has been exposed to different thai food from their family dishes. I have always ordered pad thai in all thai restaurants to see who has the best. So Im curious to what the saffron road pad thai has to offer.excited to also try chicken biryani. My college friend is pakistani and introduced me a while back to this amazing dish.

Whole foods you rock, Saffron Road does too. I would like to try the Lemongrass and Basil Chicken, and then the Moroccan Lamb Stew, and after that, EVERYTHING (not at the same time of course.) I would like to try those because they sound very flavorful, plus it is all Halal. MMM. I have tried the Lamb Vindaloo and the Lamb Saag and both were seriously amazing!!!! Yum.
