What’s New: Stevia-Sweetened Gummy Bears, Kale Powder and More

 

We kicked off 2018 by adding Rosé cider, organic riced cauliflower, authentic Italian prosciutto and more to our shelves. Now we’re introducing more tasty newcomers including bite-sized treats, moisture-rich vegan soaps and steamed banger-style sausages. 
 
Like all the food we sell, these new food and drink additions meet our quality standards, which include no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners, and no hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup either. For personal care products, we evaluate quality in terms of ingredients and experience. In fact, there are more than 100 ingredients that are not allowed in any body care products we sell.
