Nutpods non-dairy creamer

Nutpods non-dairy creamer

A fantastic dairy-free creamer made from almonds and coconuts, and without carrageenan. I use it to replace half-and-half in recipes!

— Jackie F., recipe developer and food stylist

Black Medicine cold bottled coffee

Black Medicine cold bottled coffee

Using a proprietary new nitrogen flush hot pressure brewing technique, this coffee delivers a uniquely complex flavor experience. So smooth. I also like the kind with milk, like an iced latte.

— Jennifer B., Fremont store director

 
Beanfields Pico De Gallo bean and rice chips

Beanfields Pico De Gallo bean and rice chips

A staple snack for me. Delicious, made with complex carbs rather than starchy potatoes, and the pico de gallo flavor is unbeatable!

— Gabriel J., View Ridge

Olli Salami Minis

Olli Salami Minis

Calabrese is my favorite, a little spicy! They come in a pack of bite-sized pieces and are perfect for traveling: camping, hiking, road trips and flights.

— Robin B., View Ridge

Marinated Kale Seaweed and Cucumber Salad

Marinated Kale Seaweed and Cucumber Salad

Adds some Asian flair to kale. The umami flavor is complemented with refreshing cucumbers. High in vitamins and minerals from the sea vegetables.

— Austin T., Columbia City

 
Honey Mama's Lavender Red Rose Cacao-Nectar bar

Honey Mama’s Lavender Red Rose Cacao-Nectar bar

Made with fresh coconut meat, dark cocoa, lavender, rose petals and raw honey, it’s an out-of-body experience.

— Agnieszka K., Issaquah

Jacobs Creamery Bloomy cheese

Jacobs Creamery Bloomy cheese

One of the best bloomy rind cheeses I’ve ever had. Creamy, grassy — tastes like pure Washington.

— Jill L., PCC food writer

In the beer & wine department

Puig de Solivella Cava

Puig de Solivella Cava

It’s particularly good chilled with a splash of crème de cassis in it. Classy and refreshing.

— Rachel W., member relations

Powers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

Powers Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

The addition of malbec and mouvedre gives it depth and earthiness. Plus, we can feel good about buying and consuming extra bottles because it helps benefit PCC Farmland Trust!

— Gina K., PCC Farmland Trust

 
Chateau du Petit Clocher Anjou Rouge

Chateau du Petit Clocher Anjou Rouge

This bright and vibrant red is bursting with red fruit flavors, flora and stone accents. Rich in flavor and texture, but light to medium in body. It’s the perfect wine for all things BBQ. A PCC exclusive.

— John W., Edmonds
