New at Wheatsville

In 2008, the students and teachers of Breath and Body Yoga were introduced to a locally brewed kombucha and instantly became fans of the ancient elixir. When the local brewer stopped production, a group of yogis decided to fill the void, and Kosmic Kombucha was born. Kosmic Kombucha is brewed in Austin with organic ingredients and fresh produce from local markets. New to the lineup is the Ms. Pink flavor, a lush, tropical concoction of organic kombucha flavored with guava, mango, papaya, and a kiss of local honey. Guava notably dominates and accounts for the bright pastel hue; if you're a fan, you'll love Ms. Pink! 18oz, Reg. $3.59

Bee Free Honee is a unique sweetener with a slightly tart flavor. It is "apple honey" in that it is made from apples rather than by bees! Only three all-natural ingredients are used: apple, pure cane sugar, and lemon juice. There is nothing artificial, no added color and no corn syrup. It's great for vegans, small children (no fear of botulism), those allergic to traditional honey, foodies looking for a new flavor, and those concerned about Colony Collapse Disorder (which is currently causing decline in the bee population). Bee Free Honee can be used in BBQ sauces, hot and cold beverages, vinaigrettes, granola, cakes, breads... if you use traditional honey in the recipe, you can use Bee Free Honee interchangeably. 12oz, Reg. $4.89

Looking for a protein bar that resembles nature rather than a science experiment? Good, because PROBAR has packed 20 grams of plant protein and plenty of real, recognizable ingredients into a new line of 'Core' bars.

Totally vegan and gluten-free, new PROBAR Core bars can help you create lean muscle while actually enjoying getting to the end result. 2.46oz, Reg. $2.79
