Sometimes I get into a routine: I have my shopping list, I know what I need and I go directly to those items on the shelves. I bet some of you do that too. When we do that, though, how the heck are we going to find out about new products that might be the perfect missing link to a fabulous meal?Well, I’m in a special situation. Since I work at the global office for Whole Foods Market, I get sneak peeks from our purchasing team on new and exclusive products coming up. And, as a reader of the Whole Story blog, you are in a special situation too, because I’m going to share those sneak peeks with you!Without further ado, here is some of the great new stuff you’ll find in our stores in August.
