The Kitchn Rates Wholly Rollies One Of The Most Exciting New Groceries

The Most Exciting New Groceries Hitting Shelves This August

Food manufacturers don’t take the summer off, which means there are dozens of new groceries hitting shelves across the country this month. Some of the products were released a bit ago, but are finally hitting their stride and seeing national distribution. Others are brand-spanking-new and just waiting for you to come and find them. I tried dozens of new items to find out which ones are worth seeking out.

Here’s the best of what I found.

Crazy Richard’s WhollyRollies

These energy balls are just like homemade, with simple ingredients like peanut butter, oats, dates, and raisins, and no added sugar or oils. They’re great when still frozen or cold from the fridge, kind of like eating cookie dough — just keep in mind you’ll need something to wash them down (they’re mostly peanut butter, after all). I found myself getting into the habit of grabbing one every time I went out for a morning run, and they gave me the energy I needed. They come in three flavors and they’re all good: Cinnamon-Oatmeal, PB and Cacao (which has coconut and cacao nibs), and PB & Strawberry (which has freeze-dried strawberries). Sure, no-bake nut butter energy balls are easy to make so it might seem a little silly to buy them, but that’s true of a lot of things. I figure there’s no shame in buying a healthy snack that’s great for quick, pre- or post-workout energy if it means there’s one less thing on my to-do list.  Look for WhollyRollies at ACME stores and Harmon stores.
