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?
