Wholefood Store Experience



  When in the right spot at the right time we check out Wholefoods! Wholefoods is a not just a grocery store.  It's an experience.  Wholefoods offers a huge variety of food from organic fruits and vegetables to products without artificial dyes and preservatives but, it doesn't end there.  They have grass fed beef in the meat department.  Plus there's even a restaurant to grab a meal before or after your shop! The pizza looked amazing but so did the salad bar!  A beautiful bounty of fresh cakes, donuts, bagels and cookies got my son making birthday cake demands.


  When we walked in we came in by the product area and my son loved looking at the fruit and vegetables and telling me the prices (everyday is a learning experience).  There were a lot of things I have never cooked with but, have seen mentioned before.


The Jack fruit had our attention.  I had never seen this before.  A nice customer told us a bit about it.  She said you can use it as a meat substitute!!! We looked at a piece sliced open and I guess the store sells some BBQ that you wouldn't even know was made from this! 


Little man loves honey so he asked to make a bottle of honey!


He also likes peanut butter and thought we needed some fresh peanut butter!


I tried to deter him to some crunchy, healthy snacks. 


We stopped and checked out our senses on the soaps and scrubs! We agree that Orange Vanilla Scrub was the best!


Momma likes the smell of coffee even if it's not a hot cup of Joe!

To finish off our tour we ended with a treat!

This was our first introduction to these little ice cream balls!


There were a variety of flavors from traditional chocolate and strawberry to mango and pistachio.  At least 9 flavors to reach everyones taste buds.


We didn't know what we were getting into so we choose just 2! 

We choose chocolate (his) and I got the pistachio!


The outside has a soft dough consistency and then you have a ball of ice cream in the center.  The rice dough wrapper was a little chewy but it blended into the flavors nicely.

We had a nice time and I can't wait to explore Wholefoods again pickup some Jack fruit and see what else we can try!

Have you been to Wholefoods?  Have you heard of or ever eaten Jack fruit?

  2. Haha I love how you make eveything so fun and just to go to the grocery store. We dont have Wholefoods in Switzerland but have make a road trip for two month in the US and we loved it to! When you enter it does feel very organic! The prices are a bit higher but totally worth it as the produits are the highest quality! Yes as I am from Thailand Jack fruit is something we eat very often! And Mochi is from Japan but I have never tasted as ice-cream! In Japan they have in all kind of different flavor and the way they are making it is quite funny. You should look it up on youtubeand show it to your son!

  4. We head to whole foods pretty often! Mostly for their water though. Most of them have these awesome water filling stations, where you can bring in your own bottles and fill with high PH water! And its so cheap! We fill up like.. 16 gallons of water for like 8 or 9 dollars.

    1. Oh, I don't recall seeing a water station but, one girl was walking in with a small (personal size) jug. I wonder if she was going to refill it.

  7. Wholefoods is essentially a market not like your ordinary grocery store. They make you feel like you're getting the best of your money and the food quality seems 10x better than the others.

  8. There is a Whole Foods near us and we make a trip there an adventure too! We enjoy looking at different foods from different cultures. Taste testing never hurts either!

  11. Yay, I'm so into Whole Foods now that they've opened up a brand new store (all sparkly with love!) in my city. It's super cool, with all the coffee and treats, snack and eats...they do have some decent deals each week too!

  13. Whole Foods is a pretty great place. And they do have some great foods there. I just found them way too expensive for most of my daily purchases when it comes to food. I am glad some people can afford it.

    1. Yes, it is expensive. We were not shopping and only walked out with the 2 icecreams. I do like the unique items though.

  21. Whole Foods is one of my favorite places to shop for organic produce. The costs can be limiting; however, it's well worth it in the long run. Thank you for sharing your take.

  22. I like Whole Foods but it can be expensive. I like to get dried herbs from there and natural beauty products.
