Toddler Food

I’ve been reading about a food product for young children called puffets by Peas of Mind. Would you consider ordering them for the coop?

Puffets look great (coming from the father of a toddler), but they are currently not distributed in the Midwest. In fact, this product has just become available outside of California. It could take a while before our Midwest distributor catches on to Puffets, but I’ll keep an eye out!

Thanks for the suggestion.

Apple Lara Bars

Please start carrying the apple Lara Bars— they are great!

These are on the shelf now.

Red Delicious Apples

Where have all the Red Delicious Apples gone? Haven’t seen ‘em all year!

We don’t usually stock Red Delicious apples, because they don’t sell as well for us as other varieties. They tend to be a bit soft and bland. Most of our customers seem to prefer Fuji apples which are much more sweet, crisp and flavorful, as an alternative to Red Delicious, or Honeycrisp when they are available. It is likely we will only have Red Delicious apples in stock when supplies of other more popular(at least here) varieties run out from suppliers.

Stevia

Do you sell Stevia? It’s a natural sweetener with no calories.

Yes, we have Stevia in our bulk herb section and also in packets, liquid, and crystallized form in our Health & Body Care aisle. It’s there instead of with the other sweeteners because it is classified as a dietary supplement and not a food additive in the U.S. and Canada. It’s up to 300 times as sweet as sugar and made from the juice of a plant found in South and Central America that is part of the sunflower family.

Will you keepy carrying the Apple Z bars by Cliff Bar Company. You used to carry them and my son likes them a lot. Thank you.

Sorry—the Apple Z Bar flavor was discontinued by the manufacturer.

Latex Mattresses

I am a member of the Burnsville co-op and received the co-op magazine. I noticed that you will be having a white sale on your bed & bath linens. Do you offer latex mattresses or know where I can purchase one in the Twin Cities? I am interested in a latex mattress because I have many environmental allergies. Thanks, Diana

Thanks for contacting Linden Hills Natural Home and Linden Hills Co-op, Diana. Unfortunately, our store is not large enough to offer furniture or mattresses, and I don’t know of anyplace in the Twin Cities that sells latex matresses.

Guiltless Gourmet

You should carry “Guiltless Gourment” Tortilla Chips. They are the only baked chip I have seen.

We do! both in yellow and blue corn. They’re in the chip and snack section; ask any staff person to help you find them.

Lentil Dahl

Let’s have lentil dahl more often!!

It’s great, isn’t it? This item is in a rotation of deli grab ‘n go spreads and is featured regularly. I’ll pass this request on to the kitchen staff.

Juice Boxes

Are larger packs of juice boxes available?

No, I’m sorry—the 3-packs of 8-ounce juice boxes are all that we can get.

Ocean Boy Shrimp

Could you carry Ocean Boy frozen shrimp? I read an article about them in a magazine— they are located in Florida and a lot of co-ops are carrying it there.

Currently I know of no distributor carrying this in our area. It does look promising, and I will keep an eye out for it should it become available!
