Swindon Pulse - Whole foods haul

I popped into my local whole food store Pulse after work yesterday to pick up some shampoo. I ALWAYS get carried away in this little gem of a shop, especially if I see things that I have read about!

So this is what I got:

Faith in Nature Neem & Propolis Shampoo - The only thing I went in for. I haven't used this shampoo before so will do a full post once after a couple of weeks. I went for the normal/oily choice.

Faith in Nature Seaweed & Citrus Conditioner -I had run out of conditioner too. They didn't have conditioner in Neem & Propolis so I went for Seaweed & Citrus instead as it was for normal/oily hair too. 

biona Coconut Oil - Good to cook with, good to add to coffee, good to my hair, good for my skin. What's not to love?

Freedom Mallows in Vanilla & Strawberry - I've spotted these on a few blogs recently and I am a sucker for marshmallows. I looked at buying them on-line but I am tight and didn't want to pay more for postage than the actual sweets. Anyway - these are INCREDIBLE!

VegiDeli Seasonal Sausage Style Rolls - A brilliant mix of little vegi sausage rolls that are also wheat & dairy free. I have stocked up on these for Christmas emergencies!

inSpital Raw Purple Corn Kale Chips - These really appealed to me - crispy kale with cashew nut dressing? Yum. Reality? Yuk. Gave me really stinky breath and were just not nice. I didn't even finish the packet; my colleague took a few to try and disliked them too. 

Chi Chocolate Coconut Milk - A favourite treat of mine, I'll always pick one up when I am in the shop.

Booja-Booja Hazlenut Crunch Chocolate Truffles - I have seen loads about these on Twitter recently and when I saw these I had to get them. At £7 for 9 truffles they are expensive but honestly they are worth every penny. I have only eaten the one but each bite was an explosion of pleasure! Dusted with cocoa power and filled with smooth truffle with sweet roasted hazelnuts. Ingredients? Chocolate (cocoa solids 55%, cane sugar, vanilla), Coconut Oil, Hazelnuts & Cocoa Powder. Vegan, dairy free, organic and gluten & soya free. I will be buying these again!

What treats do you like to pick up from your local whole foods shop?
