PCC’s Candied Pecans
I love them! They are the perfect blend of sweet and spice! I eat a few after dinner as dessert almost every day, and they make a great topper for salads. Also Grizzlie’s All Trail Mix — just nuts and dried fruit with no added sugar. So simple and so good. I always keep some in my drawer at work so I can grab a nibble when I need a little something to keep me going until my next meal.

Marinated Castelvetrano Olives
These are my favorite snack sold in the PCC bulk olive and antipasto bar. Meaty Castelvetrano olives with savory herbs and fennel seeds make for the best snack, accompaniment for cheeses or charcuterie, or a crisp, clean dirty martini. The Marinated Castrelvetrano Olives made in-house at the PCC deli are the best and can’t be found anywhere else.

PCC’s pesto tortellini
I’m obsessed with the pesto tortellini in the deli case — it’s been around forever, but it’s amazing. Especially if you throw it in the microwave for a few!

Sprouted, salted almonds
have the best combination of salt, oil and a little sweetness from the sprouted almonds. Very satisfying! Also, the house-made baba ganoush — smoky, creamy deliciousness to dip your pita in and top with a delicious bulk olive or two!

Navitas Golden Berries
They are kind of sweet but mostly tart and they have little seeds that add a little crunch and texture. Super healthy — I eat them with my oatmeal or a handful as a pick-me-up.
