Whole Foods Market Giveaway

August 17, 2014

Disclaimer: I was given a $20 gift card by Whole Foods Market Carrollwood, free of charge in exchange for this review through their partnership with Tampa Bay Bloggers.  All opinions are mine based on my experience. I was not compensated monetarily for this review.

I jumped at the chance to visit this Whole Foods Market store because I thought it would be fun for the girls to have one more last minute Back to School Bash!  The promise of face painting and a magician was enough to get the girls excited.  First stop was picking up a free healthy pre-packed lunch for the girls.  The pre-packed lunch consisted of a banana, carrots, diced chicken, kind bar, go-go squeeze and a juice box.  Yum!

What kid doesn’t like firetrucks?  Apparently my kids.  They were more interested in the fire rescue paramedics than the firemen.

Whole Foods Market events

Outside the store, employees were serving up shakes and they even had a table were you could make your own trail mix.  Inside the store was another story.

Whole Foods events

There were so many little sample stations I lost count.  A few of my favorite ones was the fish stick sandwich, the hummus dip and the cookie chips.  But the best was the grilled cheese sample made with swiss cheese, avocado and bacon.  Sorry, there’s no picture.  It was too delicious to wait.

Besides all the yummy goodness that Whole Foods Market has to offer, I love that they have so many free store events.  This past Saturday they hosted a free Sushi & Sake Sampling event!  On August 26th, they are hosting a Mom’s Morning Escape between 9:30-11 am.  All moms and dads are welcome to a free coffee or tea and muffin with a free 5 minute massage!  On August 30th, Whole Foods Market is celebrating American Artisan Cheese Month between 1-3 pm, you can taste the most flavorful cheeses the USA has to offer.  They will be pairing these creamy delights with their favorite American brews, all free!  You can checkout their website here for more fun events.

      Yay! I was hoping you’d see the giveaway. I immediately thought of you. I have not tried their garlicky kale, but I’m a big fan of their buffet. Good luck!

    Well, my husband love Whole Foods! He loves the variety of organic juices as well as a certain brand of hemp seeds for his smoothies (don’t quote me on any of this…what do I know about being healthy, lol) He also loves the naked juice brand. He can stay in the store for hours trying to decide what to get and what to come back and get the next time.

    Sounds like your Whole Foods experience was soooo much fun! Take me next time, oh yea and my husband!!! lol

    I don’t have just one favorite. I definitely have to try out their food bar next time I go, I’ve heard nothing but good about it!

    My favorite is the coffee bar especially because I can get almond milk. Their smoothies are amazing my favorite is the kalelicious. Also they have rewards cards for both.coffee and smoothies so eventually you get a free one. The samples there are great plus the kids club.

    I absolutely adore the cheese department at Whole Foods. In addition to the crazy wide variety of cheeses, they have an excellent and knowledgeable staff working there. I’ve used them for a couple of wine tastings and I just go in with my wine list and they are able to help me with pairing suggestions. A great experience for sure.
