Our families favorite 365 product right now are the chocolate sandwich cookies...my kids love that they have "365" stamped right on the cookie...who knew?:)

Elizabeth Keller says …

The 365 Everyday Value Breakfast Blend Ground Coffee is by FAR my favorite. Who needs to pay tons for the unhealthy version over at S******ks?

Anna Brescia says …

edamame in the pod! I buy at least 5 at a time. I eat a bag almost every day.

Kay McCurdy Chance says …

My favorite 365 Everday Value brand product is the Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I use it for cooking and making salad dressings.

Marcie says …

I love to buy 365 brand cereal bars for my children. They are incredibly cheaper than Nutri Grain bars and are now a staple in my family. Thankful to find quality at an affordable price!

Your pasta sauce is awsome. I use marinate organic chicken breasts in your salad dressing, then bake in a pan smothered in your pasta sauce. Yum!

I can't live without the boxed stock. I keep all the varieties on hand, but I won't let my pantry go lower than 4 boxes of the Reduced Sodium Chicken. I use it in absolutely everything! It's perfect for quick sauces, gravies, soups, rice, couscous, mashed potatoes...you name it! There is always an open "working" box in my fridge, and at least 4 more in the pantry. The flavor is the best of all the brands I've tried, and the reduced sodium helps me control the sodium in my diet without sacrificing any flavor. And at $1.99 a box, it's almost not worth making my own!

My favorite 365 product, among many, is the Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter. I've tried many such peanut butter products, and they turn out to be either too dry, or the liquid separates from the spread and makes it difficult to scoop, spread, and enjoy. 365 Organic Peanut Butter is perfect! Tastes great, has incredible texture, does not need to be stored in the fridge, and spreads like heaven over crackers or bread. Thank you Whole Foods and 365! :)

Denise says …

Your cake mix is THE BEST cake mix I've ever had!! I used to make my cake batters from scratch but not anymore after trying yours! I get lots of compliments every time I bake with them!

Vickie Defelice says …

I love 365 green tea.It is very good with 365 sandwich cookies.

Catherine Douros says …

MY DOG LOVES PET PROMISE HEALTHY WEIGHT DRY DOG FOOD. IT WAS ALWAYS ROASTED CHICKEN OR HE JUST WOULDN'T EAT. HE LOVES THE CANNED DOG FOOD TOO. HIS COAT IS SOFT AND SHINY. BUT, THEY ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS DUE TO THE ECONOMY. I'D GIVE THEM $100, JUST TO STAY IN BUSINESS

For today it's the soy milk which I use with the whey protein powder to make as a shake. I drink this before my morning workouts.

Wen Chen says …

Jacklyn Talabamiz says …

I love 365 organic soybeans. Being vegan, I need to make sure I get my recommended amount of protein each day. 365's soybeans give me just that at a low price of only 1.99.

Oksana V Fricia says …

Soda-Key-Lime.

Sara says …

Potato and Onion Pierogies !!

Paula says …

Mmmm, Mmmm good! The 365 brand Expeller Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is superior! As the jar says, it is a great source of energy! You can eat it on your fave toast, waffle, pancakes, whatever... Great in protein drinks and makes it a bit tropical. Yummo! Also, the best moisturizer I have found ever! Sensitive skin this is great for you too and will not break you out. Like going to the spa, you will have the smoothest skin and smell like you have been to a tropical island...coconutty! I have also used it as a deep conditioner treatment on my hair. Afterwards, my hair was so shiny and healthy! It is USDA Organic too! A fantastic price for inner and outer beauty and health! Cannot say enough about the 365 Coconut Oil I found at Whole Foods! Best compliment I got was from my granddaughter telling me that I had such soft skin! A great value, so you can get one for the kitchen pantry and one for the bath!

Mayte says …

cream cheese... LOOOOOOVE it.

Anne S says …

365 shampoo. No animal testing, no animal ingredients. I reasonably priced and ethical choice.

Sara Love says …

Foodwise, I love all the 365 organic beans but my favorite overall has to be all the different scented shower gels and body lotions. There is a different scent for my different moods and at that price, I can afford to buy more than one scent at a time.

Nina Puro says …

I love the balsamic vinegar... for roasting veggies, in salads, on bread- on everything! I use it every day.

Jennifer Campbell says …

I love the 365 body care I love that it's vegan with no parabens most companies charge a fortune for a product like this but all 365 items are very inexpensive and amazing quality thanks whole foods.

alle says …

I'm a big fan of all the 365 Everyday Value frozen veggies. I always keep the peas, haricot vert and spinach on hand. But the product that I probably use the most is the crumbled feta. I throw it on top of arugula salads. I use it in omelettes (with the frozen spinach). I sprinkle it over roasted egglant and whole wheat pasta. The list goes on and on... The fact that it adds so much flavour with just a spoonful really makes it a great value. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one! Plus, it keeps well in the fridge for quite a while, which is nice. Definitely a staple for me.

Erika says …

Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value soymilk is remarkable stuff! Not only can the price not go wrong at just $2 or less every week -- often less with discounts or coupons! -- but the flavor can't be beat. So many fancy and expensive and heavily marketed soymilk brands out there...but the 365 Everyday Value original is my hands-down favorite. I used to shop around and buy many different brands; now I buy the Everyday Value, well, "Every Day!"

Debra Webber says …

I'm a big fan of the 365 Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I've spent more on olive oil in the past, but never found that the more expensive products gave me better tasting results. Why not get the best, but pay a little less?

Todd Pearce says …

My Favorite 365 Everyday value would have to be the bottled Spring water. I try not to buy bottled water due to the negative environmental impacts but do buy the larger sizes for lunch. All you have to do is look at the price difference between the 365 and other brand names sitting right next to it on the shelf. Close your eyes, you can't taste the difference!

Luz Corrigan says …

Our family favorite 365 Everyday Value brand product is the organic whole wheat tortillas because they are healthy and a great value, specially if you buy them by the case. We use them every day for our lunch boxes as we prefer tortilla wraps rather then a sandwich. I usually make tortilla wraps filled with organic lunch meats, organic spring mix and tomatoes, organic mustard and sometimes avocado or egg and bean burritos. And that is why this is a five star item on your great 365 selection.

Adela Aguilar says …

I just have to agree with the 365 Everyday Value extra virgin olive oil. It has been a great cooking oil for my family and me. I haven't had any complains on stomach aches ever since i have been using it.

Kortney Mettle says …

365 olive oil is def my most used I practially use it everyday! It is a great price and a great taste!

Rosa Vargas says …

My favorite 365 product is your fat free yogurt (and is on sale most of the time). I love the smooth taste, plus is made with milk from cows not treated with rBGH.

cara anderson says …

i love the 365 everday value brand soda's. They contain 0% fruit juice,no artifical coloring and they're amazingly delicious.

Pat McCoy says …

My favorite 365 product is the organic Honey Crunch and Oats. Great i n the morning and at night for a midnight snack.

Kim says …

I love the organic soymilk!

Vivien says …

I absolutely love the 365 Everyday Value brand of the organic grade B maple syrup. It is soooo much better than any of the processed brands and is a much better value than any other brand of true maple syrup, and best yet, it's organic.

Russ and Doris says …

Our favorite 365 Whole Foods product is your "365 Organic Ketchup". It is the best tasting of all those we have tried, and the only one we now purchase. No one can beat Whole Foods!

Nicole Williams says …

We love the whole wheat pancake mix! Easy to make and really yummy! They are especially good with blueberries added. We make extra portions, wrap them up, freeze them and then microwave for a quick, hearty, nutritious breakfast.

Isaac says …

While we purchase many 365 brand items at whole foods because they are inexpensive and great quality, I can't live without 365 Organic Dijon Mustard!

Kris says …

By far my favorite 365 everyday value brand product is the yummy peanut butter!!

shanna ringer says …

My favorite 365 brand are the Italian bread crumbs.They add lots of flavor to my turkey meatballs.I also add to meatloaf and many other recipes.I love that they are made with all natural ingredients. Im also in love with the Garlic Stting beans,already prepared. I eat them as a meal or a wonderful side to compliment any meat. I am so glad there is a new Whole Foods right near me now.
