Every month, we are pleased to add many new products to our shelves that have passed the testing and tasting and met our strict Quality Standards. (That means they’re free of hydrogenated fats and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors - wahoo!) And each month, we choose a dozen or so to call to your attention. Here are a handful of new products — or new varieties of old favorites — that we think you'll especially enjoy.
Read on -- one of our vendor partners, Amy’s Kitchen, is giving away a free “case” their new Light & Lean Quinoa & Black Bean Bowl to one of our lucky readers. UPDATE: Thanks to everyone that entered! Congratulations to our randomly chosen winner, Aimee M.!
