As you know I eat gluten free and organic. I find Whole Foods prices to be competitive or better than other traditional grocery stores and specialty stores and even better than some online prices when you consider shipping. I had the opportunity to try all of these products and I have to say that the quality was equal to name brands or other store brands if not better! The prices for the organic meat and chicken blows me away!
Whole Foods offers a product guarantee. If you purchase a product that does not meet your satisfaction you can exchange it for the full product value. I love this especially when purchasing organic, natural and gluten free products. There is no concern about trying a new brand when you purchase it at Whole Foods because they will refund your money if you are not satisfied. That is a great thing when trying a new gluten free product for sure!
