What’s New in April

We are always watching out for the latest food trends and listening to our customers to find out what kinds of products they’re looking for, so we can bring in exciting new items whenever possible. Below are some of the great new items that recently arrived on our shelves. If you have something you don’t see at the Co-op yet, but you’d like to suggest we carry, contact us at info@hungermountain.coop.

In the cooler with the other dips, you’ll find Siete Family Foods’ Vegan Queso Dip, a cashew-based queso dip in Spicy Blanco and Mild Nacho varieties. They are vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, paleo-friendly, and absolutely perfect with a big bowl of Siete Tortilla Chips.

While you’re there, check out the new fresh hand-made in Maine, Plucked Fresh Salsa. Simple ingredients include fresh tomato, onion, cilantro, a squeeze of lime, and jalapeno and habanero peppers, depending on how spicy you want to go. It has no added sugar, no preservatives and is certified gluten-free.

While you’re browsing our bakery and bread section, make sure to check out Klinger’s Bread Company’s Roasted Garlic Parmesan Pull Apart Bread. This new bread from Klinger’s, in South Burlington, VT, is cheesy and delicious, great all warmed up or just as is.

 Next time you’re grabbing something to drink from the beverage case by the deli register, try Health-Ade’s Organic Kombucha. This small-batch kombucha is vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, and comes in unique cold-pressed flavors like Pink Lady Apple, Pomegranate, and Blood Orange-Carrot-Ginger.

You can get in touch with your childhood memories of frozen treats, with Deebees’ Organic Freezer Pops. These pops are organic, gluten-free, contain no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, are free of the top eight most common allergens, and have no added sugar! Available in strawberry, grape, and tropical.

No Evil Foods’ Vegan Meat Alternatives are small-batch-made, plant-based alternatives in varieties including “No Chicken,” “Chorizo,” and “Pulled Pork,” made by a company committed to reducing our impact on the environment while improving our health.

Another great milk alternative has joined the dairy case, with Nutty Life’s Vermont-made Cashew Milk. Intensely rich and creamy, try the large bottle milk, made with 8% cashews, for your cereal or coffee. Try the smaller bottles, made with 20% cashews, for a smoothie-like treat, in Chai, Chocolate, and Vanilla.

In the cereal aisle, you’ll find a new gluten-free cereal option, from One Degree Organic Foods, in Sprouted Corn Flakes, Ancient Maize Flake, and Sprouted Brown Rice Crisp. The company’s focus on transparency and traceability includes website videos telling the story behind each ingredient (and there aren’t many) or introducing you to the farmer who grew it.

Finally, you can satisfy your sweet tooth with The Cookie Dough Café’s Ready to Eat Cookie Dough. This eggless chocolate chip cookie dough comes in both original and gluten-free options. There are no added preservatives in the dough which is made fresh and then frozen or refrigerated immediately. Not designed for baking into cookies, this dough is meant to be eaten as-is. All you need is the spoon!
