I LOVE LOVE LOVE the olive oil! It's a great value and I use it almost everyday whether I'm sautéing veggies, fish or adding it to a homemade dressing, it's a staple in my kitchen!

Cathy Herard says …

My favorite is extra virgin olive oil!! I use it on a daily basis in my cooking and bread baking and LOVE using it when I make popcorn.

Jennifer Lill says …

My family loves the 365 Extra Virgin Olive Oil! Tastes great and the price is perfect for our tight budget!!

Beth Van Gelder says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the organic wildflower honey.

Devon Hernandez says …

Right now when money is tight and I can't buy some of the expensive desserts I like to normally treat myself with, I hit up the 365 Whole Fruit frozen popsicles to give me an icy sweet treat that makes me feel like I'm a million miles away at a tropical destination! My favorite is the Tropical Fruit flavor, but I also love the Lime. They are reasonably priced, taste great without icky ingredients, and a more healthier option for every day than loading down on ice cream. Thanks Whole Foods!

Ashley says …

365 Lavender body wash - at $3 a bottle, it's the best deal around. It wakes me up every morning and smells sooooo gooooood! When it's on sale, I stock up!

Danielle says …

I love the citrus grapefruit shampoo! It works wonders getting the residue out of my hair that normal shampoos/conditioner leaves. And the scent leaves me smelling delicious all day!!

Lekki says …

The roasted and salted organic soya nuts - I love the fact that a value range has organic produce. I use these for everything, snacks while I am cooking, in salads, as a pie base, or a crunchy topping for my steak when mixed with blue cheese and spinach!

Everett says …

Olive oil in sauce and dough, 'cause it's pizza time again.

Karen says …

Right now, my favorite 365 Everyday product is the arnica gel. I have a 10 month old who is just starting to get into everything, and with that comes the usual bumps and bruises of childhood. The arnica gel is always close at hand and has definitely made our lives easier!

Julie says …

I have a toddler at home so we always have the 365 frozen fruit and veggies in the freezer. I actually have a kid that loves his veggies and I love how easy it is to warm up just the amount we need on any given day. The fruit we use for smoothies in the mornings. He loves those too.

paul howes says …

Like to Kettle light chips for an evening snack 365.

sara says …

I would love to make a spicy tortilla soup for my teen. He could eat many bowls of that!

Ayako Kuroda says …

I've been using the 365 shampoo in Mint scent for about 3 years and I love it!! Great price too!!

Abbey says …

My favorite 365 brand item is the Honey Puffed Wheat cereal. I buy them in multiples since I go through it so quickly.. It's so good and there's nothing dishonest in the ingredients!!!

Barbara S. says …

I love so many of these products, but the 365 olive oils are my favorite. I love olive oil and have tried countless varieties from around the world, but for everyday use, I think the 365 green label is perfection. I also love 365 peanut butter, frozen waffles, Pacific Rim coffee, and the lavender and herbal shampoos.

Ashley says …

I love the 365 full-fat canned organic coconut milk. It's so rich and creamy, and definitely the best coconut milk I've ever tasted!

Grace Lilly says …

365 brand frozen soy beans is my favorite product! I've never had them so fresh. I'm unable to find soy beans in this type of packaging while still being crisp. It's a staple in my house!

maggie dillard says …

365 soups!!!!! they are easy, taste great, healthy, not full of preservatives and salt!!! Plus they are not expensive!!! My entire family is a big fan of the 365 soup, please do not discontinue the black bean soup!!!

margarita barbosa says …

I really like the 365 shampoos and conditioners. I do not like to use personal products that are going to pollute the environment. These seem to fit the bill and also do what shampoo and conditioner is supposed to do. The mint and lavender frangrances are especially pleasant. Also, my kids seem to like them too. The only thing is they have gone up 33% since I started using them approx 1 year ago :(!!!

Sarah Kauffman says …

I love the 365 organic whole wheat pasta. It is cheap, delicious and most important, healthy!

Judy Wilson says …

I love all the 360 items we have used but my most favorite is in the wine department. The 360 Sangaria is the best we have ever purchased. It can go up against any fresh made we have had at home or in a restaurant. We now have our family and friends hooked on this wine. You can't go wrong with any 360 item in the store.

Megan Smith says …

My favorite 365 brand product is the Gluten-Free Pancake and Waffle Mix! It's better than regular pancakes. And for a GFer like me, it's a total endulgence. Thank you!!!!

Mary says …

My favorites are the organic 365 frozen vegetables. I can get them cheaper than conventional frozen veggies at other supermarkets!

Christine Walker says …

My family adores the 365 Everyday Value strawberry jelly & peanut butter!!! We all have pb&j sandwiches every day for lunch. Without these products, I'm not sure what we would have for lunch!!

Elle says …

Our absolute favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the Vanilla Rice Milk! My toddler is allergic to milk protein, and any milk products result in screaming and pain. The rice milk is a great milk replacement, and because of the yellow and white carton, he always asks me for "yellow milk!" Thank you for a great product that we can both use!

Lauren says …

My favorite 365 product is the organic buttermilk pancake mix. It has nothing artificial or hydrogenated like other mixes, and I can make it with organic applesauce instead of oil, which makes it a yummy treat that I don't feel guilty about later.

Susie Manning says …

My favorite 365 product is the Vanilla flavored liquid Stevia. It's great!!! Thanks!

Jessica says …

My favorite 365 Value product is the organic thomson seedless raisins. I combine them with the go raw pumpkin and sunflower seeds and Enjoy Life dairy free choc. chips for a nut-free trail mix! --A great snack to carry in my purse for those hungry moments, and a quick protein fix, with flavor and natural fruit sugar to keep my blood glucose up!

anne linari says …

my favorite 365 product is the coffee creamer...how cool that you can buy a coffee creamer without a lot of chemicals and is good for storing in my emergency food pantry.

susan merrick says …

My favorite 365 product is the 365 Merlot. What a great wine for only $4.99. I several bottles in the wine rack at all times. Guests enjoy it and think it is much more expensive.

Denise Warady says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value is the sea salt pita chips. They are the best of any pita chips on the market. they are fresh and crisp and light with the perfect amount of salt. Each chip is just the right size for dipping once without feeling the urge to double dip because there is so much more chip leftover. They are my favorite 365 Everyday value product!

JanE says …

The 365 Sunflower Seeds !!! Great toasted and sprinkled on steamed vegetables, mixed with some dried fruit, or just eaten out of the bag!! Yum !

Kristina Gutierrez says …

My Favorite 365 Product to date would have to be the dry cereal "Corn Flakes." I look forward to breakfast every morning now! :)

Vivian says …

If there is a 365 option for a product I'm looking for I will always buy that first. I've tried most of the products mentioned by other customers and they're all spot on with their comments! My personal favorite however is the 365 Organic Hot Sauce. It's perfect!

Lou Cattell says …

The 365 Olive Oil is wonderful. The first time I heard of it I read a comparison of olive oils in Cooks Illustrated magazine. It placed first for value and taste. Since it was not yet available in my area, I had to order it by mail. The minimum order included 2 bottles of olive oil and 1 bottle of vegetable oil. I shared these with my daughter and daughter-in-law. Needless to say I was thrilled when a Whole Foods came to Columbus Ohio. I have happily used it since then.

Lisa Mendoza says …

I absolutely love the 365 olive oil. I've beendoing some research on olive oils and found this to be a great value, good taste, and can be used for many, many recipes and types of cooking. I appreciate the Whole Food brand being available in Omaha.

Tamika Warren-Jenkins says …

In addition to the FABU EVOO, I LOVE the 365 pasta and pasta sauce...it's the BOMB!!! When I'm on an Italian kick, I use it with some of the chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and basil :) Can I just say....it is the most delicious dish and one of my faves!! 86th St. team members ROCK (especially the meat/seafood department)!!!

Sarah Eliza says …

I have to say I love the 365 beans... they're such a staple at my house, and for them to be delicious, organic, AND affordable, is just all kinds of win. :) Love it!!

Brian Salmons says …

My favorite 365 Everyday Value product is the canned black beans. We have tacos at least 2 times a week and black beans are essential to a good taco!

Rebecca says …

I LOVE the 365 Lavender shampoo! Most shampoos are too moisturizing for my oily hair, but the shampoo for normal/oily is perfect for me.

Sheri Flournoy says …

365 Soymilk is the yummiest!

Kami Johnson says …

One of my favorite 365 Everyday Value Brand products is the Tamari Rice Crackers...they have such a nice flavor you can eat them right out of the package and they are healthier than eating potato chips. I usually serve them w/ a zesty cheese spread.

Britt Barton says …

Well there are so many favorites but I think the Almond butter is my favorite I don't even need to put it in anything I just disregard all manners and eat it right out of the jar!! Thanks for what you do!!

Elizabeth Hagans says …

Hands down, my favorite would have to be 365 Organic Chocolate Truffles. When I first started buying them my kids begged me for a taste. I gave one to each of them and the cocoa powder dusted on the outside turned them off. Since then they have never bothered me about sharing them. They're like my own special treat, just for Mommy.

Dian says …

I love the 365 oatmeal!

deb lavoy says …

my favorite product is the line of shower gels and shampoos. They are gentle, effective and subtly, but beautifully scented, and about half the cost of alternatives.

Carol S. says …

It's not a 365 Everyday Value product, but is a great value, delicious, and I serve it WITH several 365ers!! It's the Vegan - "Whole Kitchen Meatballs" in the frozen foods dept. I make homemade vegan meatballs, too, but when I don't have the time I just grab some WKMs from my freezer and place them in a pot to simmer in 365 Pasta Sauce and when ready I serve over al dente 365 Spaghetti or Linguini, and complete the vegan meal with: Italian bread slathered in Earth Balance "butter", small bowl of 365 Sliced Pears, mixed greens salad, and chocolate cake - A great way to celebrate a Saturday evening!

Elissa says …

So hard to choose! I guess the frozen fruits and veggies. I put 365 spinach in my eggs every morning and 365 frozen berries in my smoothies.

Katie says …

Citrus grapefruit shampoo. It is some of the best shampoo I've ever used!
