This New Online Grocery Store Sells Everything for $3
From organic virgin coconut oil to taco seasoning, they've got it all.
Online grocery shopping is one of the most convenient things *ever*. All you need to do is click "add to cart" and you're one step closer to getting your weekly meal prep done. But often, shopping for your foodstuffs online can cost you a pretty penny. A new online grocery store called Brandless is working on changing all that.
By offering products under no brand name, they're able to sell normally pricey items, like organic virgin coconut oil, at a super-low cost. In fact, everything on their site has the same price tag-three dollars. Yes, you read that right. What's more, they've made a commitment to providing customers with high-quality food, nontoxic cleaning products, and beauty items that have not been tested on animals-all at a more than reasonable price. Those are some values we can definitely get behind. (BTW, here are nine common foods that contain toxic ingredients.)
As of now, the site doesn't offer produce and their stock is relatively limited compared to other grocery services like AmazonFresh. But they offer a range of specialty products that any health-conscious grocery shopper will be psyched about. Peanut Powder that has less than 85 percent of the fat of normal peanut butter? Yes please. A two-pack of mac 'n' cheese? Add to cart.
One of the most genius items available on the site is an organic fair trade cold brew coffee bag. Fill it up with water, stick it in the fridge, and wait 24 hours. Remove the filter, and you've got yourself six servings of cold brew. FOR THREE DOLLARS. That's probably less than your local coffee shop charges for *one* cup of the stuff. There is also a huge selection of snacks perfect for stashing in your desk drawer for a quick healthy treat, like these organic applesauce pouches or the slightly more indulgent toasted coconut cookie thins.
To top it all off, they make it easy to search products based on dietary restrictions and eating styles, like organic, vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, no sugar added, and Certified Kosher. Pretty sweet, right? So go ahead and fill up your cart-and definitely don't worry about breaking the bank. (Here, find out more about eating healthy on a budget.)
