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!

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 =)

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

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!

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.

The descriptions all sound so wonderful. However I am very excited to try the lamb saag.

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.

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.

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!

Which stores has chicken tenders and nuggets etc ?

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!

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
