I have not shopped at a Shaw's in a very very long time. I prefer to go to Whole Foods, Stop & Shop or Roche Bros depending on what I need. The only Shaw's visits I have made in recent years have all ended in dissappointment. They have been grimy, not well stocked and not a good natural section. That all changed last night though! I had to pick up some chickpeas and tomatoes for my Chana Masala last night and Shaw's was the closest grocery store to the train station where my car was parked. Since I only needed those two things I didn't really mind.
I was actually kind of blown away at the vegan finds stocked in the little hick town that I was in. I only wandered around for a few minutes but in those few minutes I picked up some really awesome treats that I haven't seen at Stop & Shop or Roche Bros, the 2 stores I frequent most . Look at this fun stuff I got!
Brown Rice Marshmallow Treats, I was super stoked to find them locally. They are usually things I can only get in Boston, with the exception of the Rice Vegan cheese, I can get those at WF. Now, I didn't need any of this stuff but I am the type of person who gets extremely excited over vegan items that I become compelled to purchase them. I did bust out a Marshmallow Treat as soon as I got home and even though they were a little tough to bite and chew they tasted awesome. Think Rice Krispie Treats made out of Cocoa Puffs. Seriously.
The thing I was most excited over though were the Go Max Go Bars. Every vegans favorite candy bar! Keep your eyes peeled for a review on them soon. Maybe I will even do a little giveaway................. =)
