Whole Foods High
Guess who just got back from Whole Foods?
I’ve been dying to go ever since I started food blogging. My mom was headed to Orlando today to visit the temple and she wanted me to come along. So she dropped me off at Whole Foods for 2 1/2 hours while she visited the temple just 15 minutes away!
*sarcasm* How did on Earth did I occupy myself in Whole Foods for 2 1/2 HOURS? *sarcasm*
I only brought $60 with me into the store so that I wouldn’t be tempted to spend more. It worked! 😉
Here’s the haul:
2 pink lady apples (I have never seen them anywhere else, so I HAD to get some!) and unsweetened carob chips
1 can regular coconut milk and 1 light coconut milk
bulk bins: oat bran, millet (never had it before!) and dried figs (also never tried!)
unsweetened almond milk, Whole Food’s 365 brand
2 Clif Bars! I love Clif bars, never tried these flavors! They were on sale, BONUS!
85% dark chocolate (never tried this percentage!)
LARABARS!! 2 Blueberry Muffin,2 Peanut Butter and Jelly and 2 Key Lime Pie! I have never tried any of these flavors, so excited!
I now can understand why the nickname for that store is Whole Paycheck! Everything is so expensive! This trip and buying all this stuff was a HUGE deal for me. I NEVER buy bars, fun nut butters, new grains, dark chocolate or almond milk but I’ve been saving my money and I have been WANTING this stuff for ages now. So it was about time 🙂
My overall consensus of Whole Foods is that I love that store. I basically know that store like the back of my hand since I was there for 2 1/2 hours!
Everything is very natural, lots of organic products, freshly made baked goods, such a great place. I want to work there someday 🙂
Here’s a close-up on the carob chips.
I had to try a few, since I’ve never tried carob. Verdict? Loved it! It’s different from unsweetened chocolate, it’s a bit sweeter but still bitter. I could eat unsweetened carob by the handful, but unsweetened chocolate is way too bitter for me!
I was going to get the carob powder, but chips are much more fun! These unsweetened carob chips will be amazing on oatmeal!
Is it weird that I really had no idea what figs looked like?
The only times that I’ve ever eaten figs was in Fig Newton form.
I love how they look in the inside.
And they taste just like Fig Newtons! Love it! These are going to be a great snack!
Now, I wonder what fresh figs are like?
Well, I’m off to watch Tangled! Have a great night!
Do you like Fig Newtons? What do you think of carob?
