Raising the Bar
We have been hard at work updating our selection of energy bars at the stores. Bars used to be more functional than delicious; however, there have been some recent additions that are both good for you and will tantalize your taste buds.
Clif Bar White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
This is definitely my favorite, and has quickly become our best selling Clif bar flavor at Foodland…maybe it’s because I eat them all the time or it could be that they really are the perfect afternoon snack. They are made with 70% Organic ingredients and have a wonderful macadamia nut crunch to them. These are a little on the decadent side of the bar category and a great bar to try if you have stayed away from bars due to taste.
Not necessarily that new, but they have really started to sell well in the past few months. These are really just fruit and nuts in the most yummy combinations. We carry four flavors that are all-natural, gluten free and even have a low glycemic index for those of you watching your sugar intake.
Think Thin advertises themselves more as a “weight management” bar. They are very filling and you can use them as a good meal replacement for when you are on the go. They have 20 grams of protein and no sugar which makes them a hit with people looking for something a little less snacky and more of a good meal solution.
Whatever you are looking for in the world of energy bars you can find at Foodland. We are always updating our mix of flavors to keep up with current trends. Don’t see what you are looking for? We love to bring in special requests for our customers…just let me know what you want.
Mmmm…popchips! You know I love them. What’s not to love? No artificial colors, flavors or anything really bad for you. Katy Perry apparently loves them too and recently partnered with popchips to create her own new flavor.
I usually don’t get crazy for Kettle Corn, as I like salty more than sweet, but let's just say, I tried Katy Perry's new Kettle Corn popchips, and I liked it!
They have the perfect blend of sweet and salty with all the popchips goodness. ... more »

Perhaps you have a vegetarian coming over for Thanksgiving this year. Seems every family has somebody nowadays that is not eating meat. Struggling over what to feed them? Well, I know that Thanksgiving is all about the Turkey but being a veggie myself, I can tell you that you don’t really need to do anything all that special for your vegetarian family or friends.
We wouldn’t want you to miss out on all of the delicious holiday beverages this year! After all, they only come around once. With Silk®’s healthy alternatives, we are able to indulge on all of them. We are so excited to have Silk® Nog Soymilk and Silk ®Mint Chocolate Soymilk in our Foodland stores! It is on Maikai for $3.99 for the 32 oz carton.
I finally got to try the Silk® Fruit & Protein drinks! But let me tell you, it wasn’t easy….
When I originally got samples of the three flavors, I organized a tasting within our office for a few people to try. I ended up getting called into a meeting and when I came out, the containers were all empty and I had nothing but glowing reviews.
Then, I went and bought one at Foodland Beretania and my niece polished it off before I ever got a chance at it!
Have you tried cooking with coconut oil yet?
It has become a staple in my house, but often when I tell people about this wonderful oil, I hear something to the effect of, “aren’t tropical oils bad for you?” I also heard a lot about coconut oil being high in saturated fat, which didn’t sound good either.
Anybody remember that Reese’s Peanut butter commercial (I might be dating myself here) where the guys are walking around the corner…one is eating chocolate and the other is eating peanut butter. They bump into each other and create a truly wonderful flavor combination. Well…it took a few decades but that winning combination of chocolate and peanut butter might have just got beat out by coconut and peanut butter! I just finished my first jar of Earth Balance Coconut and Peanut Spread ... more »
