One of the reasons that I love Whole Foods Market is because the quality of their baked goods. I have been so sick and tired of the lousy tasting baked goods in most American grocery stores that are baked with "vegetable shortening" or "hydrogenated palm oil". I am very happy that Whole Foods Market carry baked goods that taste naturally good and that are baked with high quality ingredients that include butter and cream. In my opinion, any American town that has no Whole Foods Market is not worth living in. I have realized that any town that has no Whole Food Market, also has no Trader Joe's (another of my favorite store), which somehow only has very lousy restaurants. If I am wrong, please correct and educate me. This is just based on my travel experience in American towns that don't have a Whole Foods Market.
Besides wholesome and delicious baked goods, Whole Foods Market also carries a wide variety of decent tasting ethnic foods that show me the taste of the world. I am delighted to find Vietnamese Iced coffee there and it tastes pretty good. Shopping at Whole Foods Market is never just a chore to me, it's always an amusing and educational experience. I can't say I am a very worldly person, but shopping at grocery stores like Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's does make me become more appreciative of other cultures. After all, the world isn't just all about greasy hot dogs and ghastly cakes that are baked and pasted with "hydrogenated vegetable shortening".
