A Sneak Peak
One of the things I love at Foodland is that we really care about the food we sell. We pride ourselves on only selling food that we “would serve our own family and friends” and we really mean it. As a buyer I have to present new product lines to our quality control committee in a monthly meeting. It’s really kind of fun in that it is a show-and-tell format.
Last week I presented a few new lines that I am really excited about. I felt great in that everything passed in the meeting. Here’s a sneak peek at what will be coming to a Foodland near you soon:
I love coconut water but I am not a super fan of drinking out of those aseptic boxes that most of them come in. C2O comes in a can, it’s all-natural, and extremely refreshing. It has a very clean finish and the can stayed cold for a long time.
So long baby food jars! Baby food is moving into convenient pouches. There is a convenient spoon that screws on the end of the pouch…when you want to feed your baby you just squeeze the pouch and food comes through the spoon…its super simple and food is great. I had a few moms try the food with their babies and it was a hit. I tried it myself and was afraid somebody was going to come into my office whilst I was eating baby food…that would have been awkward.
From baby food we go into the new world of toddler food. Revolution Foods has cool new “Jammy Sammys” These are premade, individually wrapped, peanut butter and jelly sandwich bars. They are truly unique and make a great additional to the school lunch or snack. They come in a 5 pack box.
That’s it for the sneak peak.
Back to the hunt for new and exciting natural foods.
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 »
