That's great. It will make my life easier to shop for foods that you struggle to find and be sure that the quality is great

I spent a month in Jordan and it really started to change my dietary habits. I appreciate all Whole Foods and Saffron Road are doing to expand knowledge and access to certain dishes and preparation methods in the US.

Thank you Whole Foods, for making this possible during Ramadan! I would go with the Moroccan Lamb Stew, because I don't know many Moroccans, so I almost never get to try that cuisine. I'm from a Pakistani background, so I have had opportunities to try some of the other options, but they sound great as well! Props for making a smart business move!

These all sound delicious. The one that stands out to me is the lamb vindaloo. My good friend's mom makes a fantastic vindaloo whenever we visit their home. Her authentic Indian cooking always blows me away. My cooking cannot compare to it, and to be able to buy a tasty ready-to-eat vindaloo would be a dream come true -- my freezer would probably be full of them! It's also very exciting to see a store marketing for Islamic eating guidelines. Im Catholic, but Christian and Jewish interests are always marketed; it's both open-minded and seems like good-business.

Amazing how I've been looking for halal products like the ones offered by Saffron Road, and voila I came across this through a link posted by Muslimas Oasis on Facebook! I can't wait to try all of them iA! I don't get to eat much red meat at home because of my parents' health issues, but the Moroccan Lamb Stew looks super yummy! Now I have ANOTHER reason to shop at Whole Foods! Thank you Whole Foods! Ramadan Mubarak everyone! =]

Thanks Whole Foods! I'm totally ready to try Saffron Road foods. I'd love to try the Chicken Biryani (because it's my all-time favorite traditional food) or the Chicken Pad Thai because it's rare that we get to Thai halal food - I think it'd be delicious!

I found out Whole Foods was selling halal certified food on CAIR's website and bought some Lamb Saag to celebrate the first breaking of the fast meal (iftar) of Ramadan- very good choice! I chose it to see how yummy frozen lamb could be and it is very good. I'm very happy to know my Whole Foods has another reason for me to shop there!

@Youssef, Saffron Road is nationally available at Whole Foods Market stores, however selection may vary from store to store. Contact the store to check that they have exactly what you want and if they don’t you can always request that they order it.

I would love to try the Lamb Vindaloo. I grew up on Halal meat and truly miss it. Also there is nothing like hot & spicy curry. And have it infused with Portuguese spices just sounds extremely yummy to me. Best of both worlds.

I'd go for the Chicken tikka masala. Thanks for carrying halal food products in your store. You just gained a new customer and I'll be telling my friends and family about this and we'll def be shopping here. Samie Connecticut

Great job on carrying Halal products. We've always shopped at Whole Food for produce, dairy. Now we can add Halal entrees to our shopping list as well. Thank You for including muslims in your promotions. Much appreciated.

Saucy Indian dishes like the Tikka Masala and Vindaloo are an addiction for me, but I would be most eager to try the Moroccan Lamb Stew. The taste would be newer to me, and the spices sound like a delicious mix. Also, I prefer couscous to rice, and it is a treat that I don't have often enough.

I would love to try the Chicken Pad Thai. It looks yummy and I love pad thai! I could never have it with chicken because there are no halal thai food places near my house. This is great news for me!

Happy to see all the Halal options readily available at the supermarket. Looking forward to trying the Moroccan Stew, because the lamb is usually quite good and very tasty.

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!

Glad to see interesting Halal products in the market. Timing is good with month of Ramadan too! I would love to try the interesting Morrocon Lamb stew; Chicken Pad Thai, Lemon Grass Basil chicken, Lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka masala, before I try the halal chicken nuggets etc. There are many brands of halal chicken nuggets but halal version with interesting international cuisines is something worth checking out!

Happy to see that a super market is willing to tap into this good customer base while providing healthy chocies for everyone. I will try all of them especially chicken nuggets as my kids love them. Briyani and sammoos will be another thing to try as well.

I'm glad that whole foods is selling Halal meals. Honestly I would like to try all of them but if I have a choice it would be the chicken pad thai. I wish a whole foods would open up near Dearborn.
