Today we were in the Hilldale area and decided to shop at Metcalfes. I enjoy this store because of the classical music, fine cheese and produce departments (It’s true. I love the classical music. It’s relaxing while shopping with two whirling kiddos.), cleanliness, and their desire to reduce waste, reuse bags, and recycle materials and old food.
Here are two items we found today in the deli area. Although they are processed (boo) they are nice to have in a pinch, for school, car rides, snack between meals. The nutrition information is not bad, and most importantly, they are nut-free.
1. Garden Veggie Straws – made with real vegetable puree.
2. School Safe Snack bars – we tried banana chocolate chip. Pretty good.

Enjoy your day!!
