Oh, Whole Foods. The grocery store you love to hate and hate to love. The store beckons like a haven for health food enthusiasts and gluten-free vegans everywhere, boasting product transparency, an impossible-to-replicate ability to remain on top of trends, and enough overpriced produce to feed a small village.
But sometimes, the nationwide chain goes a little too far.
There’s a lot we can tolerate when it comes to ridiculous food trends — but these unnecessary products are so expensive, we have to wonder who else besides Gwyneth Paltrow really purchases any.
There are, of course, ways to shop at Whole Foods without breaking the bank. And a few of these items have arguable rarity or nutritional benefit. But when it comes down to it, no one’s lives have ever changed as dramatically as their bank accounts when they splurged on these unusual items.
A six-pack of juice for nearly fifty dollars? A single square of chocolate for almost ten? When will the madness end?
