A lot of their processed stuff contains cane sugar. So things I buy there are raisins, nuts, dried/freeze dried fruit, rice cakes, coffee, toilet paper/paper towels, toothpaste, lotion, some vitamins, cheese (for my husband,) spices in jars, cocoa, fruit sweetened jellies, honey for baking (I get local raw for non-baking use elsewhere,) earth balance, olive and sesame oils, brown rice, corn pasta (their brown rice pasta is GROSS,) some produce (you have to watch the packaged stuff,) frozen fruits and veggies, etc. Basically ingredients. Their prepared foods are good, we just can't keep them in the house.
