Valentine’s Day at Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods Valentines day Chocolate and GiftsI already love Whole Foods Market and I love chocolate.  So, you put those two together and I am a happy mama.    Last week I went to Whole Foods Market in Glastonbury for a blogger event.  They put out a spread of desserts and some savories for us to sample as we chatted about blog stats and posts.  They were showcasing their chocolates and Valentine’s Day offerings.

Dark Chocolate Covered Straberies and Valentine Heart cookies Whole Foods Market The main thing I love about Whole Foods is that they always have options for people with different diets.  I do not eat meat, dairy or eggs and they had gorgeous dark chocolate covered strawberries and samples of vegan candies and chocolates.  They also had a gluten-free chocolate cake.  For the omnivores, as my son calls himself, they had a mashed sweet potato topped with panko crusted shrimp and a maple/chocolate coated bacon.

Whole Foods is more than a grocery store.  They always have a great selection of books, fitness videos, clothes, candles and gifts for all ages.  For Valentine’s Day they have stuffed animals, candles, bath salts, cards, chocolates and more!  They even have great Valentine themed napkins.  As I write this post I realize I should have taken pictures of their amazing floral department.  The staff there are so knowledgeable and helpful.  You can run in last minute, pick up some flowers, chocolates and a prepared meal to make the perfect Valentine’s date.  Or better yet, send your loved one in with a list and let them bring it all home!

Do you have a Whole Foods Market near you?  What is your favorite department?

  • I do have a whole foods near me. I like the bulk items best. I don’t like paying for packaging when I already have containers (mostly ball jars) at home.

    Also, i am so glad to learn that Whole Foods supports bloggers! I may get mine going again for that perk alone (and because I love to write).

  • We don’t have any whole foods around us, but after reading this, I sure wish we did!

  • I love that I can find non dairy peanut butter cups at whole foods. It would be tougher to follow a plant based diet without the resources we get at Whole Foods here in Glastonbury, CT.

  • Not only does this event sound wonderful but it gives me a great idea… send my husband to Whole Foods for dark chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines Day! Honestly, I wouldn’t have thought of Whole Foods for Valentines before this.
    Thanks for the good idea!

  • We have to drive about 45 minutes to our Whole Foods but I it’s worth it. We don’t go there to buy our regular groceries. We go there for a treat. They also have Freebie Fridays every week with free food samplings most of the day.
