I’m back this week to share my top 10 favorite World Market food and drink items. This was a couple weeks in the making, as I was sampling/testing several things. Some of these things I’ve been buying for years, as World Market is one of my absolute favorite stores. Most of you know, I’m now a World Market employee so my little employee discount sure does entice me to buy a lot more! This store does a great job finding the most unique items you don’t typically find in any grocery store so it’s really fun to search the aisles to see what’s in stock. I named this list a part 1 because I’m anticipating this list is going to grow. I’m also going to do a future post on my top 10 favorite non-food items as well but for now, here are my top 10…
These mini Danish cookies are so addicting! They are soft and a bit chewy. The wafel is slightly toasted with an incredible sweetness but not overly sweet with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. To die for! There is also a caramel and chocolate flavor.
2. El Sabroso jalepeno and cheddar tortilla chips
Okay forget Doritos. These were surprisingly really good. The chip is thin and crispy with really nice flavor. Not too spicy for those sensitive to spice and heat. I also like the salsa and guacamole flavors. No dip needed.
3. Kitchen of Love quinoa meal
If you are new to quinoa like myself, I promise you’ll like these. Because quinoa has so many health benefits, I’ve been trying to work it into my diet but let’s face it, it doesn’t always sound good. These little ready-to-go meals are easy to pack in a lunch on the go. No need to even heat them. You don’t need to add all the sauce, a little at a time so the quinoa isn’t drowning. The jalapeño and roasted pepper is my favorite.
4. My favorite Pancake Mix, Southern Pecan
We made these on Christmas morning. This mix is super easy to prepare with a little water and an egg. It has small bits of real pecans. I’ve never made pancakes before this and all of mine came out perfectly! I love the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor with a little nuttiness from the pecans. Some butter and a tiny bit of maple syrup is perfection!
5. Wine snacks
Wine snacks are a simple snack that were surprisingly addictive! They are long skinny breadsticks like those found in Italian restaurants. They are like a long crunchy cracker flavored with parmigiana cheese. The box shows suggestive wine pairings but they are good for any time. Would be good with marinara or pesto dipping sauce for a party 🍷
6. Sutter Buttes Meyer Lemon Infused Olive Oil
We only have this item in the minis section but you don’t need a lot. My favorite way to use this is to toss it with some freshly cooked pasta and fresh herbs.
7. Epic Meat stripes
Love gourmet jerky. These are great to keep in your purse for a protein packed snack while you’re out running errands all afternoon. It’s fun to find unusual meats like venison and wagyu beef.
8. Revolution Tea Sampler
Again these are only in the minis section but this is a wonderful selection of high-quality tea. They are very aromatic and come in lovely little satin pouches for steeping.
9. Urban Accents Veggie Roasters
I love to eat my vegetables roasted in the oven! Ever since I had roasted veggies at Zoe’s Kitchen, I had to do this at home every time. These come in 3-4 flavors depending on what you want to roast. I toss the veggies with a little of this seasoning and olive oil and roast them in oven. Always turn out great!
10. Nyakers Ginger Snaps
You may have recognized this big red tin sold during Christmas time but we actually sell these year round in a smaller blue tin. There honestly is no other gingersnap like them. Thin, crunchy and delicious. I heard someone say they crush these to make a pie crust! I may have to try that someday…
Okay, I’m going to have to add one more…
11. World Market Bourbon Pecan coffee
This one is only seasonal during Christmas. When you see it, stock up! I don’t usually drink my coffee black but this one is good enough to do so! It’s so smooth and has a good rich flavor. No cream even needed ☕️
Hopefully, you had fun with list list. I hope to share more soon. In the mean time, happy eating! 😋
