01-29-2008, 12:14 PM
Roxanne's prepared raw foods (cakes, crackers, sandwiches, ice cream, etc.) went on sale in natural food stores in the Bay Area this week. I'm planning on going to Whole Foods and buying some today. I can't wait! There are even some tastings planned at various markets around the area over the next couple weeks. Anyone tried anything yet?

I just called 3 Whole Foods Markets (Berkeley, San Ramon, Oakland) they are all carrying Roxanne's line. They all said they just got their first shipment in today but only San Ramon has it on the shelf. The others say it will be on the shelf in a couple days. I'm driving to San Ramon as soon as I get off work! I can't wait! I'll let you all know what I think as soon as I try it! I'll probably try everything! :p

i live in Sacramento & Whole Foods here had it yesterday...LOADS of options! expensive but worth the splurge.
I got Vanilla Energy nuggets(from the dry, non refrigerated section) which are good.
Also got the Chocolate vanilla parfait....very good.
and a pinwheel sandwhich which will be for lunch today.
I am excited as well!

I can't wait to try the ice cream. I guess I better call my whole foods to see if they have it out yet. I got a daily candy e-mail yesterday (widespread e-mail advertising for all sorts of businesses and products) that focused on it - they highlighted the whole foods on 4th in SF and Andronicos. Andronicos will be having lots of tastings.

Mine has it. They said it's in the sushi case that is in right by the hot prepared foods case and the by the salad bar. Sweet!!

Please Roxanne? Please, please, please come to Phoenix!
01-29-2008, 05:50 PM
will all whole foods markets carry the line, do you know?
I'm in Boston and wonder if they are here.

Right now it is only the Bay Area, but I did read that they plan to expand - probably in other parts of California first and then hopefully nationally.

...and hopefully the expansion won't be too far off. Would be fun being able to grab some ready made raw goodies while shopping or just when the mood strikes. "jeelus" :o

My trip to San Ramon was well worth it, even though they only had the dry food products on the shelf (but all they had to tell me is that the other stuff was in the store, I didn't have a problem asking the clerk to open the boxes in the back and he was quite gracious). :)
Anyway, I bought lots of Roxanne's goodies! The Mediterranean Pin Wheel Sandwich is to die for good. The Savory Snap Crackers are delicious (they taste like Cheeze-its). The Sesame Essential Cookies are wonderful. The Chocolate Raw Energee was OK, but I'd rather have a fudge ball (Alissa's recipe).
I also bought the Vanilla Parfait, Sprouted Granola with Goji Berries, and the Vanilla Malt Frozen Dessert which I have not tried yet.

WOOHOO! i'm headed to Whole Foods to pick me up some goodies !
Thanks for the heads up VP!

My whole foods was actually sold out of some stuff by the time I got there! Granted, they only gave the refridgerated stuff one small shelf - and maybe there was more in back. I bought the pin wheel sandwich, onion garlic nut cheeze, savory crackers, vanilla granola and some chocolate square things. They had a few assorted salads (seaweed, couscous, etc) and an apple crisp. They were out of the parfait and a chocolate dessert. I'll report back when I've had a chance to taste some. I think I'll have a cracker and cheese tonight - the rest will have to wait. Oh and I almost forgot - I saw the ice cream in the normal ice cream section. I decided not to buy it though b/c it contained locust gum and I don't know what that is, but it doesn't sound raw. It also has maple syrup for those that care. I figured I can make my own ice cream since it was a cashew/coconut base just like I make.

Hi I'm curious...do the 'fast' prepacked raw recipes/meals retain their enzymes/life force? If so how do they do this?
I thought raw items started to lose their energy as soon as they are cut into or processed in anyway like blended etc?
I know many fruits/veggies lose life force as soon as they are picked/taken from the ground thats why I try to buy from farms/have a box scheme delivery so my produce reaches me within a day of harvesting.
Are the pre packed foods preservative free?
How come they dont start to oxidise the way green smoothies or pulp in the juicer does almost immediately?

I'm going to have to check out the ingredients again. I don't remember any unwhole or non-raw ingredients in any of the items I purchased except for the maple syrup in the vanilla malt ice cream and I always read labels. But I was in a bit of a rush when I was there, so perhaps I overlooked the locust gum. I won't be eating that if I did, although I already tasted a spoonful and it was really good, a bit too sweet, but good.

I just ate the toonut pinwheel sandwich for lunch. I loved the bread. I didn't love the tuna part as much, but it was still good. I read a small blurb about her products in the food section of today's Chronicle - said they are working on more sandwiches and breads. Also I munched a couple bites of the vanilla almond granola and it is fantastic!
