New at Wheatsville

We work hard to seek out exciting new products and flavors we think our members will love.
Here’s what’s new at Wheatsville this week.

Fearless Chocolate's unroasted chocolate bars mark an evolution in exploring raw, vibrant, and extraordinarily nutritious interpretations of one of the most exciting foods on the planet: cacao. Fearless bars are crafted with a proprietary process that yields as much as 2-3 times more antioxidants than conventionally produced organic chocolate bars. Fearless supports a single origin source of organic cacao from Bahia, Brazil, which features a fine balance of earthy and chocolaty base-notes accented with bright hints of cherry and apricot. Reg. $5.99 2oz.


In classic or snack size, Clemmy’s Ice Cream O’s offer a rich combination of sweet, decadent chocolate shell on the outside and creamy vanilla bean ice cream on the inside. Best of all, they’re sugar free (sweetened with maltitol), gluten free and 99.7% lactose free! When you just want to reduce your sugar intake, Clemmy’s Ice Cream O’s are the perfect sweet escape. In our freezer section.
12ct, Reg. $5.99; Individual O’s, $.99


Kopali's luscious dark chocolates are crafted entirely at the point-of-origin, and are rich, sweet, and deep in flavor. This balanced dark chocolate coats crunchy, premium, roasted whole espresso beans, for intense coffee flavor and a shot of energy. Each bag is equivalent to approximately one and a half cups of coffee. 3oz, Reg. $3.69


Dastony employs stone grinding methods to produce some of the best artisan quality organic raw nut and seed butters on the market. Although "old world" in its approach, stone grinding is revolutionary in terms of preserving nutrients and flavor. This natural preservation is achieved by maintaining a consistently low temperature throughout the entire process. Another unmatched result of stone-grinding is a silky smooth texture and mouth feel that is truly beyond words.
Butters, 8oz, Reg. $11.99;
Halvah, 6oz, Reg. $9.99

King Arthur’s unbleached, unbromated, high-gluten bread flour, milled from hard red spring wheat grown chiefly in the Dakotas, is perfect for yeasted baked goods: bread, rolls, pizza, and more. At 12.7% protein, it's a full point higher than other national brands. Higher protein content contributes to a stronger rise, crucial when making rye or other whole-grain breads that have trouble rising their highest. Use in recipes calling for bread flour, including bread machine recipes. 5lb, Reg. $8.49

San Gennaro Foods Southern Style Grits
Grits is a true American dish, and a comfort food staple. Though traditionally served for breakfast, grits are quickly becoming a part of any meal. San Gennaro Southern Style Grits are pre-cooked, so all you have to do is heat and serve. Gluten free, fat free, cholesterol free, and kosher.
16oz, Reg. $2.99


Ketchup —the ultimate American condiment— was originally a fermented Asian sauce called kecap (pronounced 'kee-chap'). The sweet and spicy type served in India inspires Maya Kaimal’s Spicy Ketchup. Its sweetness comes from brown sugar, its spiciness from hot chilies, and its warm notes from toasted cumin. An outstanding condiment for burgers, sausages, shrimp, eggs, French fries, roasted potatoes, or samosas, pour this on anything that loves ketchup. 13.5oz, Reg. $4.69


Happy Hemp, Austin's newest super food product, is organically farmed Canadian hemp seed. Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, omega-3 & -6 essential fatty acids, and protein, it's also raw, vegan, and gluten-free. Hulled hemp is delicious, tasting like a cross between sunflower seeds and pine nuts, with a light, fluffy texture that adds a breadcrumb-like mouth feel and lends itself easily to all manner of dishes.
8oz, Reg. $13.99

Eden Foods Organic Genmai Miso is made from whole foods, a koji fermentation process, accumulated knowledge passed down through generations, and solely traditional techniques. This Genmai Miso is made from USA family-farm grown organic soybeans and brown rice, is aged for 18 months, and is mellow, sweet and salty. Genmai’s golden color and subtle flavors makes this miso a year round ideal base for soup, salad dressing, dips, sauces, marinades and noodle dishes. 12.1oz, Reg. $8.99


Maine Coast Sea Vegetables; Kelp Granules, Dulse Granules
Maine Coast's Kelp and Dusle Granules are a convenient way to get your sea veggies. These granules are "salty" yet low in sodium, thanks to the rich complement of potassium, magnesium, and other mineral salts. An especially rich source of potassium, iron, iodine, Vitamin B-6, Riboflavin, and dietary fiber, they also contain a natural substance, glutamic acid, which enhances flavor and tenderizes. Phytochemicals in seaweeds have been shown to absorb and eliminate radioactive elements and heavy metal contaminants from our bodies. Sprinkle on soups, salads, tofu, pasta, stir-fries, dressings, dips, sauces, breads, tabouli. Maine Coast sea veggies are sustainably harvested, low temperature dried, Certified Organic by OCIA and a Raw Food. Maine Coast voluntarily tests for heavy metals, herbicides, pesticides, PCB's, fuel oil and microbiological contaminants. Get the nutritional benefits of sea veggies, and skip the table salt. 1.5oz, Reg. $3.49

Tonnino is a gourmet tuna made with the finest cuts of yellow fin tuna fish, carefully selected to create a product of exceptional quality. Any of Tonnino's premium selections (in olive oil, spring water, or garlic) works nicely as a superb ingredient for foodies who want to take it to the next level. The crème de la crème of the Tonnino product line is the Ventresca: extremely smooth, soft strips of tuna hand filleted from a small section of the underbelly, hand packed in its natural form. This is not your average packaged tuna!
6.7oz, Reg. $5.99

Living up to its values to provide consumers with wild-caught seafood that is eco-friendly and high quality, Raincoast Trading adds tasty new additions to its sustainable seafood product lineup of Pacific Sardines. Like its sister products, Raincoast Trading Pacific Wild Sardines are carefully packed in BPA-free tins, all natural, traced from boat to shelf, and Ocean Wise endorsed. Raincoast uses premium sea salt rather than iodized salt to flavor the fish, which has a firm texture, white flesh color, and a superior taste. The sardines are packaged in their own oil and are gently processed to ensure the highest proportion of Omega-3 fatty acids.
4.2oz, Reg. $3.49
