Hi Guys,

Since Chris and I recently hit the shelves at both Whole Foods, we'll be @ WF Lamar handing out samples of chips and Food for Lovers Vegan Queso from 11-3 Sat and Sun.

This is pretty much the moment we've been waiting for. Come out and say hi. We'd love to see some familiar faces (new ones,too).

Now you have an excuse to come to whole foods today: hang out, maybe get some vegan grub and check out the ice skating upstairs! ICE SKATING!

Best,
Crystal
Food for Lovers, Inc.

oh yay!  i'm very excited.  they stopped selling the road's end queso at wf arboretum and unless i feel like making queso our chips are bare! (we've been going through a salsa funk for a while:-)

which section of the stores will your queso be kept?  are they in a cold case, or jarred?

good luck crystal!  wishing you the best!

Aw Jen! Thank you so much.

At gateway, we're on the shelf near the chips. At Lamar, we're on the chip aisle (shelf) and on the sidecap of the aisle. We're also at Lamar in refrigeration on "vegan row" (near daiya,fyh,seitan, etc).

They'll be in jars in refrigeration or on the shelf (every store is different).

It's awesome to finally see your queso in stores!  I had some at a party the other day and it was really good, even better than I remembered!

Jen, I tried looking for Road's End queso the other day at Wheatsville, and they don't have it there either.  I do think that Food for Lovers's queso taste a lot better overall, but I do like a variety of brands too.

Speaking of Wheatsville, if you are a member, you should add Food for Lover's vegan queso to their requested product list next time you shop there.  The list is just right of the booth when you walk in the door.  I know at least 2 of us have requested it so far.  If enough of us request it, they'll have to put it on the shelves!

I bought a jar of this stuff the other day. It was really damn good. I thought it was way better than Nacho Mom's. You guys should sell it at Wheatsville. You should also sell it in a bigger jar.

It's now officially my favorite vegan queso. A bigger jar would be dangerous!

Aw! Thank you so much. Taste is so subjective and you never truly know what any one person will think. With that said, whew!

We'd love to be at Wheatsville. I sent them samples and pricing before Thanksgiving. Hopefully we'll get there soon. Just please put in a request next time you're shopping.

Vivo on Manor is going to sell our queso now! Puffy taco time.

I still have one super secret limited edition big jar. Bwahaha. I should have had it autographed. Good stuff, guys. It's nice to have a legit cheeze conveniently located at my local grocer. I don't just go around liking things, but I like this.

I used to like Wheatsville's, but it has become a weird gelatinous mass.

Looks like Wheatsville listened to our requests:

You guys seriously(!) rock. We can't even believe it. Thank you so much! You kept up with the requests and one day we got "the call". We were very excited/in shock. When we moved to Austin, Wheatsville was (and still is) a HUGE deal to us. We never experienced any sort of co-op, let alone a grocery store with tons of vegan options. To be on the shelves at Wheatsville is so so cool.

Craig, we're at the WF's in Houston. Where in Houston are you? We visit all the time.

I recommended your queso to a friend who is lactose intolerant (though not vegan) and she loved it! She was so happy to find a dairy free cheesy sauce, I gave her your website as well,
