I will scoop up handfuls of long-grain, free range, non GMO rice and cart them home in a large, spacious, biospa so that no plant-based panic fills their aerial roots.
If I win, I will buy a POUND of Parmigano Reginanno (sp?)..i usually only can afford 1/16th of a pound..;-)
If I win the giftcard, I will so be buying me $25 worth of Kettle Krinkle Cut Potato Chips!
With $25, I could at least make a tiny dent in the Asian food aisle…wasabi seaweed, ponzu and furikake…oh my!
I’d spend it all on Sir Kensington’s ketchup and choke a free-range chicken.
If I win, I’ll be able to afford Justin’s Almond Butter AND have $10 left over!
Indian food, hands down.
I’m afraid to go into Whole Foods because of the nickname “Whole Wallet” but I’d love to see what free range chicken is like. As long as the chickens are free-ranging through the store, that would be scary.
I could purchase all kinds of all-natural, organic, non-GMO, sustainable, free-range junk food that is also made with whole grains!
Or some artisan gourmet marshmallows.
Or, like Justin said, I could buy Sir Kensington’s ketchup. I’ve never tried it and it’s supposed to be really good.
Seriously though, in the city where I live we are finally getting our first Whole Foods store, so it would be awesome to win this.
Hooray for gift cards and giveaways! I <3 LOVE <3 Whole Foods and would buy some faux "meat" they have there that i do adore and also something vegan from their awesome deli! I hope I win! I hope I win!
If I win this gift card, I will go to Whole Foods and engage in even louder, more annoying conversations to drown out yuppies who are going on and on and on about how gluten-free products have changed their lives.
With $25 for Whole Foods, I’d buy something I could get at Whole Foods. (I’ve never been there even though there’s one just down the street.)
You are what you eat so i guess id turn organic
Ooh! With $25, I would go crazy in the bulk bins grabbing all those expensive nuts, grains, and baking items. Thanks!

nWo 4 Life!
I would drive as many hours needed to get to a Whole Foods which would sort of negate the gift card, but I’d make a vacation out of it. Or sleep in my van–whichever.

If I win the giftcard, I will go to town on the bulk grain bin. Fancy rice, granola, and quinoa!!
If I won, I would get some of the banana Australian yogurt with the kangaroos on it.

Mostly because I’m stockpiling for my first Whole Foods Trip! I want to buy some of their delicious free range potato chips. Or something like that…
hmmm…organic kale chips with vegan cheeze powder, raw fudge, biodynamic wine, $12 peanut butter, the dignified feeling of not having to buy all of my groceries at the 99-cent store that week
If I win this gift card…I will dance around with glee, smiling, with bars of organic fair-trade certified dark chocolate held high in gusto!
If I win this gift card, I will use it to buy some Arctic Zero frozen desserts.
If I won this giftcard, I don’t know exactly what I would get since I’ve never been to a Whole Foods before, but I know that it would be something delicious to help me attempt to adapt to my new vegetarian/vegan lifestyle!
i would find something deemed artisan
If I won, Iâ€™d organic-soy-free-range-non-GMO-cage-less-no-artificial-sweetener-natural-pure-gluten-free all over Whole Foods.
If I win I will walk into the new one openin in my town ( and first in the area ) and wet my self in all it’s glory, as well as cry that I no longer have to drive 2 hours just to go to one. I also will finally be able to even look at anything cold for sale for the first time.
If I win this gift card, I will hug a gluten-free Whole Foods cashier.
$25 could certainly buy me a lot of bulk fruits & nuts & everything else to make some bad ass granola bars.
If I win this gift card, it would go to the 8lbs of free range chicken I get in a week!

A Whole Foods just opened in my city but I’ve been afraid to venture to it because it’s in the yuppie-filled side of town and looking into the cold dead eyes of a yuppie soccer mom is just something I can’t handle right now.
But for $25 I’d do it. Do it with a smile.
Free range chicken taken down with buckshot is high in Iron.
If I win this gift card, I will indulge in chocolate-covered bacon!
With $25 I could buy half of an organic, local, sustainably farmed cabbage.
I will out-muscle all the hippies in line at noon and buy one kick ass meal from their salad bar. There will be things that I never knew how to pronounce until a few years ago: edamame, quinoa, haricot verts; junk like that.
I’d use it to buy some organic free-range toilet paper.
I’d use the $25 to sample all the tasty looking deli items at Whole Foods that I’m too cheap to purchase.

Never shopped there, so I would buy Kale and legit Indian food!
I would buy some non-dairy, gluten free, no sugar added, vegan seaweed because it sound so tasty. Or, I would find they’re version of a candy aisle and buy sweets. Whichever is healthiest.

I would buy cheese. As much cheese as possible. Then I would dip into my own pockets and buy some more cheese after the $25 limit is reached.
If I win, I will swim in their lobster bisque.
I think I’d take a long drive with some hormone free, grass fed beef. Then, ironically, I’d take it to a nice steak dinner, and watch with glee as it realized with horror what I’d wined and dined it with.
I’d never call that beef back. Just make tacos with it.
If I win this gift card, I will buy some sort of seafood.
Whole Foods Hot Bar… here I come!!

Frozen for my enjoyment
Whole Foods price too high 🙁
I’d buy some sweet sweet buffalo sausage

Not to pull the sympathy card, but I struggle with anorexia and just found out today that I have gasteoparesis and will be having surgery on May 2nd. I need to restore weight (I weigh about 65 pounds right now) and I am going to have to start buying a lot of liquid supplements and that shit is expensive and it takes awhile to find one my stomach can tolerate that doesn’t taste like chalk. So, the gift card would allow me to experiment with some foods that I can tolerate psychologically (what anorexic wants to drink high calorie meal replacements, seriously) and physically since my stomach no longer can digest food. Again, sorry for the sympathy card, but this is going to be one expensive and long journey back to health.
If I win, I will eat a vegan, grain-free diet.
If I won this gift card I would purchase about three pounds of food from Whole Foods various food bars taking into consideration the ANDI (Aggregate Nutrient Density Index) score for each food item chosen.

I would probably buy various cheeses that I have never tried before.
If I won this, I’d buy up all the sea salt topped chocolate caramels that I could. And then feel like a lonely peon because I’m not paying with an AmEx black card. And have the cashier and surrounding customers look down on me, and laugh after I leave.
Id use it at the juice bar!
I would buy really nice chocolate!!
Chocolate Milk in the Glass Bottles. There is simply nothing else like it.
I will buy lots of cheese!
Yum……..the Lobster Bisque. Wonder how much I can get of it with $25.00 !
I’m all about Siggi’s Skyr!
Cheese, cheese, and more cheese. Yes, please!
I would either purchase a sliver of the $40 a pound organic ewe’s milk cheese, or a sampling of exotic salts from around the world. It’s salt, you wouldn’t think there were like 100 varieties, but there are. Impregnated with all kinds of minerals.
could totally go for some cheese right about now…
I’d buy ground bison and all the fixins for a delicious bacon bison burger
Oh goodness. I would buy so much pretty produce….and cheese. Actually mostly cheese.
As a self-proclaimed olive addict, I would have to load up one of the multi-compartment containers with the disappointingly small amount of olives that $25 would purchase.

Oh, Whole Foods, how I wish there were more hours in the day for me to spend with you… and money in my bank account to spend with you.
If I win, I will buy a recyclable bag each time I go to whole foods because I notoriously leave mine in the car. Or, I’ll walk. Therefore I HAVE to take my bags, more money for produce!

If I win this gift card, I will buy bars of Vosges Bacon Chocolate Bars because I’m too impatient to buy them online and I don’t live in Las Vegas. Yes, I know there is an entire grocery store beyond the bacon chocolate, but I like bacon way too much to see anything past that shelf. I’m pretty sure the heavens opened up when I saw it there. I had been routing my travel flights through O’Hare just so I could go to the boutique. I really hate O’Hare. But now I don’t have to fly through a sucky airport or feign interest in gambling. I just go to Whole Foods. Help me, TIB. You’re my only hope.
If I win I’d try an buy organic, free range/natural/whole food ingredients to make an amazing organic hamburger? I don’t know, I’ve never though about buying stuff from a whole food store. Maybe organic vegetables so I can see if it’s worth buying organic produce.

I actually work at whole foods in fairfield, ct. it’s not insanely expensive as long as you buy our 365 brand and stuff that’s on sale. but what makes me laugh around the store are the graphic design displays.
If I won this gift card, I’d probably only be able to afford 2 meals from Whole Foods–but they’d be organically delicious.
