These little sourdough crackers in a purple box by Whole Foods brand. I spread them with goat cheese and have some basil leaves on the side for a snack during the summer. Love 'em. I don't shop there much though, too expensive. I'll go in for some burt's bee's lotions and some Jason conditioner and pick up the crackers then.

Normally, you should just buy whatever most closely matches what you like to eat.

Most of the food items are fairly apparent for interpretation; some also have descriptive English writing on their packaging.

I buy the Whole Foods store brand of shampoo and shower gel...cruelty-free products at bargain prices. Can't beat it. And the products themselves work well.

Nothing really excites me there - everything is just way overpriced. I don't shop there.

It depends on what you eat regularly, I guess. I find that for what I eat regularly, Whole Foods' prices are competitive on many items, uncompetitive on others, and a wash on the rest. I don't buy toilet paper, cleaning products, or pet food at Whole Foods because I think they're overpriced but for some produce, frozen food, etc. they are quite competitive.

I love the salad bar.

They have a bunch of different grain salads that all taste completely different.
& all taste so fresh & vibrant!

No prob. And when I say "frozen food" I mean stuff like Kashi and Amy's Kitchen frozen meals which are available at several supermarket chains but tend to be much more expensive at Tom Thumb and Kroger...and cheaper at Target but with a smaller selection, and usually not available at Wal-Mart.

Sprouts and Whole Foods tend to be pretty close price-wise on the "healthy"/organic frozen brands but when one has a sale...it can be really great. Even then if you're a fan of Kashi or Amy's frozen foods, it's worth checking your local Super Target first since it's practically a guarantee that if they have that particular item, it will be cheaper.

Central Market also carries some of those items but they usually have a limited selection and the prices are OK...not great.

If you're after frozen broccoli or frozen blueberries, get thee to Wal-Mart or a regular supermarket with a Bird's Eye, Green Giant, or Pictsweet coupon.
