have you guys heard of / seen here yet? perhaps at your local whole foods or mariano's? no? well you aren't looking closely enough. (really. i actually saw some product at whole foods this week!)

anyway, here is a new chicago-based company with some awesome vegan (100% plant-based!!) goods. a bit more ... "to keep it #real, we create clean-label, produce-forward foods & beverages that taste great. to keep it #local, we put midwestern produce into each of our products, which we make just 25 miles outside of chicago & distribute only in the midwest. and to keep it #realLOCAL, we commit to growing communities by supporting local farmers, our team & our customers." you know i love a hashtag. #amazing.

here sent me some dips & drinks to sample ... which i did. quite happily, i might add. here's what i thought ...

the juices :
all were delicious ... but the one on the right ... pineapple, celery, apple, turmeric & basil ... omg, guys. it was soooo good. 

the dips:
we had a baby picnic in the park & shared the dips with our mom/kiddie friends ... let me tell you, the beet dip was a hit with the little one. (not mine. mine is a picky eater. ugh. so not a foodie.) anyway, my personal favorite was the white bean & basil. would be amazing on some toasted baguette with olive oil. mmm. unfortunately, i ate it on a carrot. wah. the curry lentil was also awesome & would be perfection on some vegan naan. gimme gimme gimme.

if you can't tell, i was super into all this stuff from here. take a look next grocery run ... you won't be disappointed! 

found at whole foods, mariano's, treasure island, eataly, la colombe, ipsento,
pete's fresh market & various boutique hotels throughout chicago.
