Yes, this is great. I am learning more and more by reading this blog and doing my research. I see that the chicken products are Certified Humane. I always by eggs with that certification on them. Thanks again Whole Foods!

Lamb Saag, because I'm an Australian who misses Australian lamb.

Thank you Whole Foods. I just heard you guys started selling some halal foods. I haven't shopped there before, but I will now. You got yourself a new customer.

Excellent idea, I would love to try all Saffron products starting with the Chicken Pad Thai. I heard about them before but never had the pleasure to taste it.

Thank you for your kind consideration of Muslims during Ramadan. We really appreciate it! I would try the Lemon Basil Chicken or the Chicken Pad Thai first. As a Muslim of South Asian descent I usually get the all the Indian and Pakastani food I want. Its the other types of food that your miss out on when you only eat halal. I'm excited to think about walking down the frozen section and actually getting a meat item for once!

These all sound fantastic! I would try the Lemongrass Basil Chicken first because I adore lemongrass. I'm also interested in trying this high-quality chicken.

I would love to try the Moroccan Stew (though all of the flavours love tasty) as I am trying to add lamb to my diet. I also want to be able to give my Mom a review on the dish ;) I don't eat either halal or kosher because of religious beliefs but I do like the requirement that they subscribe to.

Had the chicken biriyani for suhoor (pre-fasting, early am meal). very easy to prepare and so tasty. I will be making these daily. tomorrow: chicken tikka masala

I had been eyeing the Lamb Vindaloo in the freezer case, just to say I tried vindaloo, but that Lamb Koftis looks interesting too.

I applaud the addition of Halal products to your inventory. Question: Can a product be both Halal & Kashrut (Kosher)? That would be a socially blessed event. I plan to have the Moroccan Lamb Stew served over פתיתים, Israeli couscous.

Lamb saag or Chicken Briyani would be my choice because we make them at home and found them delicious.

Wow these sound delicious!! I would totally love to try the Lamb Vindaloo. It sounds so delicious, and it's wonderful to see that halal food is more accessible then before!

Yum! Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Pad Thai would be my first choices.

Would definitely try the chicken pad thai first since I'm a big fan of Thai food and it's always a challenge to find halal meat in restaurants that aren't Pakistani or Indian. It's very exciting to know that I wouldn't have to be a vegetarian for the majority of the time once these items are widely available =)

I would try all they are perfect for quick meals, and meals the kids can prepare easily too. Knowing they are Halal and from Whole Foods I feel good giving it to my children as I am A Muslim and eat Halal only! I currently already buy Saffron Foods Chicken Biriyani and Lamb SOOO YUMM!
