Thank you for this article that makes it easy to understand halal and what Saffron Road has to offer to halal consumers. I've personally tried all of the entrees and the chicken products and I love them--and I love to cook! It's so nice to have the option and not have to worry about whether the food is truly halal or if it is healthy for us. I feel good about purcashing, eating and serving anything from Saffron Road. Thank you, Whole Foods for reaching out to us!

Wow the list of products they have is great! I'd love to try the Lemongrass Basil Chicken. I've recently started shopping at Whole Foods and seeing that it caters to Halal eaters is awesome! Cant wait for my next trip to grab a few boxes of these

I've already tried the biryani and lamb saag...delicious! I will definitely be trying out the chicken nuggets for my son. I buy another brand of halal nuggets, but prefer to give him all natural, organic food. Thanks for bringing my halal and organic worlds together!

Thank you for arranging these food items, specially during the month of Ramadan. These items will help bring easy food at the table during this month. For communities with lots of students this will be a great place to pick up food during breaking of the fast. Thank you Whole Food for taking such a great step toward helping communities.

I would love to try the chicken biryani because I can't make it at home since it has so many ingredients.

All of the Saffron Road meals sound and look delicious, and I hope to try them all soon! However, I think I would try the Chicken Biryani one first because my friend from Pakistan has often told me how much he likes this dish. I very much enjoy basmati rice and saffron, and I would love to find out how Saffron Road's version of this famous dish tastes. :-)

Thank you Whole Foods for your consideration towards the Muslim community and for helping us celebrate Ramadan! More reasons to love you :) I would definitely try the Chicken Pad Thai! I love thai food, but always stick to the seafood dishes on the menu. I can't wait to have thai with chicken! And next would be chicken biryani! Biryani takes a lot of time to make, and when you're craving it you don't want to spend half the day making it - so I'm def. looking forward to having it on-demand in my freezer :)

Thanks Whole Foods for not shying away from a whole community of carnivores ;) I'd love to try the Chicken Pad Thai because I've never seen a halal frozen version of thai food before!

I would try the morroccan lamb stew because i have never seen anything like it in a frozen variety and would love to try and taste those amazing flavors!

I would try the lamb stew. I've never had lamb stew before and haven't eaten lamb in over a year (too much fat). But this looks like it's healthier than most lamb products and definitely worth trying.

Chicken Biryani is the one that I would try first because I love Basmati rice and I love the combination of cashews, peanuts and raisins. I would also love the Moroccan Lamb Stew, as I LOVE Moroccan food and lamb is one of my favorite meats.

amina says ...
um, i want ALL OF THEM. but if i had to choose one, i would say the moroccan stew, because i have a weakness for both lamb and couscous. it sounds rich and warm and meaty and could be the perfect comfort food during ramadan.

I'm so glad you are bringing these items to your stores. I would love to try the Tandoori Seasoned Chicken Nuggets because it sounds so delicious!

I'd like to try the Morrocan Lamb Stew and the chicken tenders for my daughter. I actually went to Whole Foods and picked up some of these after I read about them being the first major retailer doing a Ramadan promotion. I wanted to show my support and how much I appreciate the company acknowledging us!

I just wanted to say that it is great having ready made halaal meals available to us. We are from South africa where halaal food was easily available, so it was tough when we got here. I am really pleased that Whole foods and Saffron Road have come together with this range. I have tried the moroccon stew and i must say i cannot wait to try the others.

I would love to try the Lemon Grass Basil Chicken, just because I've seen this dish featured on many American menus but never tried it since it was never halal...and the Lamb Vindaloo, since Vindaloo is fun to say. :) Thanks Whole Foods for recognizing the Muslim market!
