Products from Specialty/Fancy/Health food Stores that are Worth every Penny?

VBeatso | Apr 4, 2007 07:15 AM

So I walk into a Fresh Market (the highest priced store, yet very good quality, in the area) everything is gorgeous, if money was no object I float around the store filling my cart with a rainbow assortment of everything; I would only shop here and buy whatever I felt like at the moment. But alas money is an object and my eyes bulge at the prices that I am just not accustomed to paying. I can't stop my penny pinching brain, "Sure this looks interesting, but is it worth 16.99 a lb. If I get only two how much of a lb would it be, I wonder how much this bag weighs"... my cart is empty. So I turn the question on to you, the more adventurous spenders what is really worth the the price tag, what can you just not live without? What items do you wish you could turn the jar inside out and lick the little bits left at the bottom? In what ways do you use these items?
