These Are the Most Popular Whole Foods Items You Can Buy on Amazon
You may not really care who owns your favorite grocery store, but Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods gives even apathetic shoppers plenty of reasons to pay attention. In addition to rolling out some pretty substantial discounts to Whole Foods stores nationwide, Amazon also announced a Whole Foods rewards program for Prime customers. Even better? GrubStreet reports that Amazon made more than 1,000 Whole Foods products available to buy online. Prime members and Amazon addicts, rejoice!
Below, check out some of the most popular Whole Foods items you can now order on Amazon.
1. Black beans
Price: $0.79 for 15 ounces
GrubStreet notes that pallets of canned food are probably one of the easiest categories of Whole Foods items for Amazon to start stocking at its warehouse. So it’s no surprise that you can now head to Prime Now to order 365 Everyday Value black beans. Amazon cites these black beans as one of its top-selling items from Whole Foods.
But GrubStreet points out that you can order plenty of other kinds of beans, too. Amazon stocks “refried black beans, spicy black beans, cannellini beans, organic cannellini beans, organic cannellini beans with no salt added, Great Northern beans (a.k.a. slightly smaller cannellini beans),” according to the publication.
2. Tomato paste
Price: $0.89 for 6 ounces
Another kitchen staple that you no longer have to head to Whole Foods to replenish? Tomato paste. Amazon cites Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value tomato paste as one of its top sellers. Tomato paste makes the perfect addition to soup, stew, and chili. But it also plays a vital role in many spaghetti sauces, and it can make a guest appearance even when you just need a quick and easy crockpot-ready meal.
3. Organic tofu
Price: $1.69 for 14 ounces
If you eat meat, you’d probably think twice before ordering your chicken breasts or ground beef online. But it seems that Amazon customers have no problem ordering their tofu from the Whole Foods store on AmazonFresh. Amazon puts Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value organic tofu on its list of top sellers. Convenient enough for anybody who wants to start eating a healthier diet, tofu numbers among the healthiest meat alternatives. You can put it to work in a stir-fry, with pasta, over a salad, in a wrap, over a power bowl, and in many other dishes, too.
4. Sockeye salmon fillet
Price: $11 for 12 ounces
If you need a protein to cook for dinner but don’t want to stop by the grocery store to pick something up, you can always order Whole Foods’ sockeye salmon fillets on Amazon. GrubStreet notes that these fillets “are some of the few proteins available that you could use for an entrée” via Amazon. These fillets have long numbered among Whole Foods’ most popular items. So we can’t say we’re surprised to hear they’re already a top seller on Amazon.
5. Garbanzo beans
Price: $0.99 for 15.5 ounces
You don’t have to love black beans to stock up on canned beans from Whole Foods via Amazon. Amazon points to 365 Everyday Value’s organic garbanzo beans as one of its best-selling Whole Foods items. Garbanzo beans, also known as chickpeas, are a key player in many protein-packed dishes. Even if you get a little overzealous with that Amazon shopping cart, we promise that you can find plenty of recipes to show off those organic garbanzos.
6. Organic almond milk
Price: $1.99 for 32 ounces
Even if you usually stick with cow’s milk, you’re probably curious about all the dairy substitutes that are taking up more and more refrigerator space at Whole Foods and other grocery stores. On that note, Amazon cites 365 Everyday Value’s organic almond milk as one of the top-selling Whole Foods items you can buy online. You can drink your almond milk or pour it over your cereal. But if you want to get a little more adventurous, you can also use it to put together many healthy recipes — most of which nobody would guess you prepared without traditional dairy products.
7. Electrolyte enhanced water
Price: $0.79 for 16.9 ounces
Choosing the right bottled water can get tricky. But Amazon users who have shopped the site’s selection of Whole Foods items have made 365 Everyday Value’s electrolyte enhanced water one of Amazon’s top sellers from Whole Foods — which makes us think it’s worth a try. As U.S. News reports, electrolytes help keep water in the bloodstream for longer, and can help some people prevent dehydration. Most people get plenty of electrolytes from a healthy diet. But if you’re a heavy or “salty” sweater or you work out for more than an hour, you may need more electrolytes.
8. Coconut water
Price: $3.99 for 33.8 ounces
Next up on Amazon’s list of the top-selling Whole Foods items you can order via Amazon? Coconut water! If you’ve wanted to try the beverage, now might be a great time to give it a chance. GrubStreet notes that not only is Whole Food’s own 365 Everyday Value Coconut Water cheaper than its equal from Vita Coco, but you can use Prime Now to get it delivered straight to your door. Just keep in mind that you shouldn’t chug coconut water like regular water, since the calories in the beverage can add up quickly.
9. Petite green peas
Price: $2.49 for 16 ounces
Almost everybody keeps a bag or two of peas in the freezer. So it comes as no surprise that one of Amazon’s top sellers among the Whole Foods items you can order online is 365 Everyday Value’s petite green peas. Frozen peas make a quick and easy side. But you can also make this nutritious vegetable the star in many delicious meals you’ll want to share with your family.
10. Wood-fired pizzas
Price: $5.99 for 10 to 11 ounces
Let’s be honest: Some of us just head to Whole Foods to stock up on items that are ready to go and just need a few minutes in the oven before dinnertime. Luckily, both Whole Foods and Amazon seem to know that. GrubStreet points to the wood-fired pizzas from Whole Foods Market as “an obvious easy-dinner winner.” A couple varieties that already seem popular on Amazon? The frozen pizza with marinated vegetables and the pie with stracchino and arugula. Whichever flavor you choose, these pizzas are sure to please everyone!
11. Unsalted butter
Price: $3.49 for 16 ounces
Even if you don’t bake frequently and try to stay away from cooking unhealthy meals, you probably need some butter at least occasionally. Ordering Whole Foods butter from Amazon is now one of the best ways to get a great deal on this kitchen staple. As GrubStreet points out, Amazon slashed prices on organic Whole Foods butter when it made major price cuts. But you can also order the regular (i.e., not organic) 365 Everyday Value butter from Amazon. Whether you need it for cookies or coffee, you can’t go wrong.
12. Organic cream cheese
Price: $2.99 for 8 ounces
Another refrigerator-case staple that you don’t have to head to Whole Foods to pick up anymore? 365 Everyday Value’s organic cream cheese. Business Insider cites this cream cheese as one of the most popular Whole Foods items available on Amazon. Cream cheese is the ultimate team player and appears in numerous recipes (not just in cheesecake). However, we particularly love using it to make sandwich spreads that are way healthier — and tastier — than mayo.
13. Tandoori naan
Price: $3.99 for 3 ounces
Business Insider reports that another super-popular Whole Foods item on Amazon is 365 Everyday Value’s Tandoori naan. Anyone who’s tried naan probably won’t be surprised to hear of its popularity. But if you haven’t tried it yet, you owe it to yourself to order a pack! It’s perfect for toasting, for serving as a side with lots of different meals, or even for making sandwiches. In fact, you can even use naan to make a 15-minute pizza. How’s that for versatility?
14. Chocolate sandwich cremes
Price: $2.99 for 20 ounces
Love the Whole Foods version of Oreos more than the real thing? Then you’re in luck! Amazon now stocks 365 Everyday Value’s chocolate sandwich cremes. Business Insider even reports that these cookies are one of the most popular Whole Foods items for sale on Amazon’s site. They may not be the healthiest thing to add to your cart, but we all need a treat every so often.
15. Organic microwave popcorn
Price: $2.99 for 3 3.5-ounce bags
Another Whole Foods favorite you can now order on Amazon? 365 Everyday Value’s organic microwave popcorn. You can pop a bag and eat it as-is as you settle in to watch a movie with your roommates or your family. Or, you can always take a cue from Serious Eats and try out some fun popcorn toppings. Trust us, you’ll never look back once you’ve tried popcorn with flavors other than “butter” or “salt.”
16. 365 Everyday Value crunchy pretzel twists
Price: $2.49 for 16 ounces
Another delicious Whole Foods snack that’s super popular on Amazon? 365 Everyday Value’s crunchy pretzel twists, according to Business Insider. These delicious pretzels work great as a snack on their own. Or, you can pair them with a healthy dip, like hummus, for a more filling snack to hold you over between meals.
17. Organic coconut oil
Price: $6.99 for 14 ounces
Coconut oil comes in handy when you’re cooking or baking — or even when you’re looking for natural ingredients to add to your skincare or hair care routine. So we’re not surprised to see Whole Foods’ 365 Everyday Value organic coconut oil among the retailer’s best sellers on Amazon. Need some help figuring out how to use up the giant jar you just ordered? Try out some of these delicious recipes.
18. Extra virgin olive oil
Price: $7.99 for 16.9 ounces
Prefer olive oil to coconut oil? Amazon has your back. You can now order 365 Everyday Value’s extra virgin olive oil on Amazon. Bon Appétit lists this bottle of olive oil as one of the “best bang-for-your-buck items” you can order from Whole Foods via Amazon. Olive oil may not be the oil you want to reach for when you want something that will withstand high cooking temperatures. However, you’ll probably find yourself reaching for olive oil for everything else once you crack open this bottle.
19. Organic long grain white rice
Price: $3.99 for 32 ounces
Whatever you’re making for dinner, it’ll probably taste even better with a side of rice. But you won’t have to head to the store to pick up a bag, since Amazon now stocks Whole Foods’ organic long-grain white rice. You can always cook a pot of rice along with whatever else you’ve got cooking. But rice is also one of the easiest grains to cook in a large batch and refrigerate for the week ahead.
20. Organic ice cream sandwiches
Price: $3.99 for 6 sandwiches
We can’t get through a shopping trip at Whole Foods without adding some kind of treat to the cart. We’d like to say that self-restraint is easier to practice when you shop on Amazon — but everyone knows that isn’t true! We’ll just leave you with this: Amazon has decided to stock Whole Foods’ organic ice cream sandwiches. If you can place an order without grabbing a box, we applaud you!
