Whole Foods = Crowded Heaven

I have never been to a Whole Foods Market.  But I've been told by others how much I would love it. 
They were right. Holy bajolies. 

Crowded as hell, for one.. which I DO NOT enjoy. But, other than that.. it felt like a toy store. 
All the favorite foods, all the items I've been dying to try, and some I didn't even know existed! 
Oh heavens. 

Here's my loot! 

Let's see... from left to right - 
Ginger Syrup (say whaaaaat!?)
FOUR different Kombuchas
Raincoast Crisps - Rosemary Raisin Pecan flavor
Xanthan Gum
Green Olive Yogurt Dip
3 Mix 1's (They don't sell these flavors at my store, Key Lime & Tangerine)
Peanut Butter & Jelly Larabar (They don't sell this flavor at my store, either!)
Party Pitas (These are adorable mini sized pita pockets)
Two avocados
5 Tomatillos 
3 Flavors of Skyr. I have been DYING to try Skyr for a long time. Finally found some! 
Peach & Ginger Jam (from Stonewall Kitchen)
Whole Foods trail mix
Carob chip energy chunks
4 Oranges

Whew, that's everything! 

In the 35 minutes I have been home, I have already polished off a Peach Mango Kombucha (which was not that good. Tasty, but not as good as the kind/brand I got previously), as well as a serving of these - 

Which are absolutely as amazing as they sound. LOOK AT THIS THING. 

There are now words! 
It tasted like it was smothered in butter. SO delicious.  I can't wait to have more! 

I munched on those with some of that trail mix - 

Absolutely the best trail mix I've ever had. There's seeds, nuts, berries, raisins. No overwhelming salt or sugar stuck to it.  And look how pretty it is... that doesn't hurt! 
(Bonus to anyone who can tell me what those white thingies are. I thought they were golden raspberries, but they don't taste like it. They are gummy in texture, and slightly anise-like in flavor)

you're right about being super crowded. every time i've been in the one in cambridge, no matter what time of day or day of the week, it is PACKED.
