  1. Hail Merry Miracle Tarts at the Shoreline, WA store. They were delicious. They are gluten free and vegan. Dark chocolate ganache filling made with coconut oil instead of heavy cream. The crust is made with almond flour. I hope they keep these around.

      Shows how tastes vary - I tried those during a demonstration and thought they were inedible.

      1. re: knowspicker

        I'm so jealous- i love those!!! And they are crazy expensive at my whole foods....

        1. re: Ttrockwood

          I love it also. They are so addicting. I am on my third package. I looked for them at WF and didn't find them. How much is it at WF?

          1. re: mrsjoujou

            Late reply here! I have found them in the refridgerated area by the bakery in my store, they were sold near the coffee counter in a cooler at another store.
            Have you had the hail merry macaroons? Those are just as divine......

      2. Was there yesterday, they were sampling dark chocolate covered dried mango, to my surprise, amazingly good.

          Sometimes dried mango tastes soapy to me. I haven't seen these at our store, but I'd be interested to try some.

          1. re: roxlet

            Yah, I find fresh mango very soapy tasting, the dried was nice and sweet with a good chew. That was a real surprise to me.

        2. I was there yesterday..didn't see any deals.
          Have you tried the new pulled pork sandwich for $5 at the food court yet?

            Where I live it's Beef Brisket (it looks like pulled pork); are you certain yours is pork? (The beef one I tried is pretty good.)

            1. re: walker

              I like the brisket too. I try to remember to get the slaw on the side.

              1. re: walker

                You can tell I don't eat meat and I just look at the pictures.

              2. re: Beach Chick

                Pulled pork BC?...not pulled tofu! are you thinking of backsliding?

                1. re: treb

                  Pulled Tofu..yum..that sounds good but it has to have some char on it.


                  Don't think so homeboy..the cows wave at me when I go by knowing they are safe and have a friend..hee hee

              3. Saw the Healthy Choice frozen bars on coupon but, in addition to chocolate they had them in strawberry and pomegranate/blueberry flavors. Very good taste.

                1. re: treb

                  I'm headed there tonight for a few of their coupon deals. I usually stock up on the HC fudge bars when there's a coupon and I saw they're offering the yogurt bars as well. Are they also "no sugar added" like the fudge bars?

                  1. re: HeyImBack

                    I believe so, the yogurt bars are 90 cals each. Sugar per bar is 13G, very moderate.

                2. Kirkland Super Food Dark Chocolate covered Cherries, Cranberries and Blueberries..$8.99 for a big ol' bag.

                  Yum Yum Yum

                    Sounds excellent. What's your location?

                      1. re: Beach Chick

                        go ahead rub it in, we're freezing! How big was that big ol' bag?

                        1. re: treb

                          LOL. .
                          80 degrees and ga ga gorgeous!

                          ' How big was that big ol' bag?' You talking about me..hee hee

                    1. re: Beach Chick

                      I tried that on a whim a couple months ago and had to eat the whole bag myself -- the chocolate coating was too much for my son. I got them for him because he loves those Brookside chocolate covered Acai and Pomegranate things, but this item has way more chocolate since the berries are pretty big, and the cherries are humongous.

                      1. re: Beach Chick

                        Those things are dangerous. The bag is just huge, and they are soooo good.
