That sorbet sounds great.
Just wanted to give reviews about 2 products I had bought at GO.
Beanitos chips (pinto beans + flax seed): nice crunch and taste. Bit salty. Don't know how much the flax seeds would be beneficial, as they are whole. But overall its a good snack and they say its low-glycemic too.
Zhenga's gypse tea, Superberry. This has sencha green tea, cacao, raspberry and dark chocolate in it. The tea comes in gauzy packets that are cute. And I really like the tea. Does not get bitter, even if you seep longer. I have to stock up on this one.
Anyone seen any DeCecco pasta at their GO lately ? For a while there, they kept getting interesting shapes, bronze die cut, organic, whole wheat etc for $1-$1.50 per kilo. Each time, I'd buy a couple, so that at one point, I had more than 20 pounds of pasta stashed away. After regular consumption, I'm down to only about 5 pounds left. I need to restock, but I can't bring myself to spend $4+ per kilo, because GO drove my price expectations way down.
Novato GO today:
I bought a bottle of the '05 Floodplain Red for $5.99 and opened it tonight. It was good with robust body and an excellent value. Saw this website reviewing it:
I also bought:
1. 2008 Adler Fels Gewurztraminer for $2.99
2. 2005 Ravenswood Sonoma County Syrah for $5.99
3. 2005 Westerly Syrah & 2007 Merlot (Lot 18) both for $4.99
4. 2004 Waimea NZ Sauvignon Blanc for $2.99
