When you shop around the co-op you’re likely to run into some of our Staff Picks. These are items that could be brand new to the store, features from our Monthly Sales, or simply something we think is underrated and worth talking about. We encourage you to try these for yourselves and find out why we love them some much! Here are a few highlights.
Laurie’s Pick: Numi Matcha Toasted Rice Tea
“The toasted rice give the tea a nutty taste that is kina unexpected but delicious!”
"A classic blend of genmaicha and matcha teas, Matcha Toasted Rice has a savory, nutty flavor. We blend sencha green tea with toasted rice to make Genmaicha, a traditional Japanese tea. The result is a smooth, rich brew with earthy depth and undertones of brightness." - Numi
John’s Pick: Taza Chocolate
“It adds a depth of flavor in most tomato sauce… and it’s great for cocoa!”
"Stone ground, organic Mexican-style 70% dark chocolate discs bursting with bold flavor and texture. Experience chocolate with true grit! Two discs in each package, perfect for sharing... This product is certified USDA Organic, Direct Trade Certified, Non-GMO, Certified Gluten Free, and Kosher Pareve. It is also dairy free, soy free, and vegan." - Taza
Mike’s Pick: Hal’s New York Sweet Onion Kettle Chips
“Perfect size for lunch… the Co-op has other sizes and flavors that are equally good!”
"Hal was NY BORN, NY MADE. He loved to tease his sons by calling potato chips "crackers." Today we pay tribute to Hal by bringing your Hal's New York Kettle Chips (or crackers) in the flavors that he loved. FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS... ENJOY!" - Hal's New York
Grace’s Pick: MilkBoy Swiss Chocolate with Caramel & Sea Salt
“…the perfect mix of creamy and chunky!
"The Swiss alpine meadows produces some of the best-quality milk available, milk for which Switzerland is rightly famed. This, combined with finest-quality cocoa beans from some of the world’s best and sustainable sources, is what makes MilkBoy Alpine Milk chocolate with crunchy Caramel and Sea Salt chocolate so exceptional." - MilkBoy Swiss Chocolate
Jimmy’s Pick: 3 Floyds Zombie Dust
“This has been one of my favorite beers for some time. Huge hop flavor. At 6.5 abv there’s always room to drink another one. Pairs well with George A. Romero’s ‘Day of the Dead.'”
"This intensely hopped and gushing undead Pale Ale will be one’s only respite after the zombie apocalypse. Created with our marvelous friends in the comic industry." - 3 Floyds Brewing Co.
Andy’s Pick: Potsdam Food Co-op’s English Muffin Bread
“So tasty! So easy! Just slice and toast, and I’ve got a great meal or snack. It’s perfect for breakfast and goes great with honey butter or jam. I also like it as a toasty open faced sandwich for lunch or lazy dinner!”
