Here's What You Should Be Buying At Wegmans

Wegmans is a supermarket wonderland where everyone is always nice, the employees are always in a good mood, and the food is always top notch. (There's a reason it beat out Trader Joe's for the top ranking in the country this year.) Those in the East Coast and Mid-Atlantic regions might already know about its reputation for high quality food and wallet-friendly prices. But if you’re not familiar with the chain, it’s basically a mashup of Whole Foods’ fresh prepared foods; Trader Joe’s quirky, international vibe; and a normal supermarket store where you can get Cheerios and like, Advil. It’s all three things at once, which makes it better than basically any other store on the planet (not to be hyperbolic).

It’s hard to narrow down our favorite food items, especially when we have an entire kitchen filled with them, but these products rise to the top due to their snackability, versatility, and low price point.
Okay, let’s dive in.

Basil Pesto Sauce
This gem of a jarred pesto sauce goes beyond topping pasta — use it as a dip for toasted bread or as a gourmet sandwich spread.

Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets

Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing
If you want to make your house smell amazing, pop these big boys into the oven. They’re perfect for a snow day when you feel like doing something decadent, or when entertaining guests and you want them to feel extra special.
13 of 47
Hummus with Flatbread Snack and Go
The fact that perfectly portioned flatbread crackers are included with the tiny tub of hummus makes our heart sing. It’s available in roasted red pepper and roasted garlic too, if you feel like mixing it up.
14 of 47
Organic Milk Chocolate Almond Butter Cups
The smooth almond butter cup is like if a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup went to college, traveled abroad junior year, and came back senior year with a penchant for wearing turtleneck sweaters and sipping espresso.
15 of 47
Girelle Pasta
Wegmans’ artisanal pastas are made in Puglia, Italy. Longer drying times and low temperatures give the pasta fabulous flavor and firm bite. Pair these swirly, whimsical shapes with a few tablespoons of basil pesto and a handful of chunky vegetables for a fun dinner.
16 of 47
Portabella Veggie Burgers
These frozen portabella veggie burgers are laced with parmesan and romano cheese, which makes them a nice upgrade from the usual sad, bland brown rice patties that pass as veggie burgers.
17 of 47
Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt Toffee
At only $1.99 for a bar, it’d be silly to not pick one up, you know, for chocolate emergencies.
18 of 47
Hot Chili Pepper Extra Virgin Olive Oil
This spicy infused olive oil wakes up anything you drizzle it on (soups, stews) or that dips into it (a crusty bread). Pair it with a bottle of Wegmans’ blackberry balsamic vinegar for a terrific host gift.

27 Grains and Seeds Sandwich Bread
I don’t know why more places don’t offer half-loaves, because if you live by yourself, it’s almost impossible to finish an entire loaf of bread before it goes stale. Wegmans understands our pain. We’re happy to not waste food and finally finish a bag of bread (for once!).
20 of 47
Salsa con Queso Cheese Dip
This is a legit crowd pleaser. Just sling the dish in the microwave for a few minutes and serve with warm tortilla chips.
21 of 47
Eggplant Parmesan Ravioli
If you’re craving the comfort of eggplant parmesan but don’t feel like messing up your kitchen with a bunch of pots and pans, reach for a package of these fresh-made ravioli. It’s also a smart choice for a quick weeknight vegetarian meal.

Wegmans' Organic Chicken Dumplings
Who needs takeout? A few of these springy chicken dumplings make a great snack or a fabulous dinner over rice.
23 of 47
Cave-Ripened Crémeux De Bourgogne
Speaking of cheese boards, this decadent French cheese is guaranteed to elevate yours. All of Wegmans’ bries are divine, but this one holds a special place in our heart for it’s pillowy texture and intense smoothness.
24 of 47
Truffle Salt
Just a pinch elevates boring veggies to wonderfully earthy new heights. Don’t be fooled by the teensy jar; this stuff lasts forever because just a few grains go a long way. And if you want to catapult your next cheese board to crazy heights, pick up a jar of their truffle honey for drizzling.

Mango Sorbet Bars
This is a great gluten-free, dairy-free tropical option when you want to cool down.
26 of 47
Seasoned Spirals
These curly fries take us back to our childhood with just one bite. They taste best with a few shakes of your favorite hot sauce, a ramekin of queso or, if you’re like us, dunked in plain old ketchup (we’re old school like that).
27 of 47
Basting Oil
This basting oil--organic sunflower oil infused with fresh herbs and garlic--is the Swiss Army Knife of our kitchen. It’s both versatile and it boosts the flavor of anything it touches. Splash a little in your pan next time you cook veggies, seafood, chicken, or tofu and you’ll see why it’s a cult favorite.
28 of 47
Organic Roasted Tomato and Red Wine Sauce
Roasted tomatoes, red wine, and caramelized onions give this sauce a rich intensity. Pair it with any pasta product in your cabinet and you’ll see why it’s a standout in Wegman’s excellent tomato sauce line.
29 of 47
Wasabi Roasted and Sea Salted Snack
This no-fuss spicy snack will shake you out of your afternoon doldrums.
30 of 47
Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramelettes
If a Milk Dud grew up and acquired a library card and a checking account, they’d be these sophisticated carmelettes. A handful will take your trail mix to the next level or bump up your boring bowl of vanilla ice cream to near-rapturous levels of deliciousness.

Organic Popcorn, Sweet & Salty
Kettle corn-lovers, this is your jam right here.

Toscana Wood-Fired Crust Pizza
We can’t stop freaking out about the new line of frozen wood-fired pizzas. Our favorite is the Toscana, a red pizza with spinach, mushrooms, and red onions, because it comes with a little packet of spicy oil to drizzle on top.
33 of 47
White Chocolate Toffee Mega Chunk Cookies
Even if you don’t love white chocolate and if you’re not a huge toffee fanatic, when they come together in cookie-form, they blow all the other cookies out of the water. Beware, because these bad boys are downright addictive.
34 of 47
Tom Tom Sauce
This jar of spicy Szechuan garlic sauce is new to Wegmans aisles, but it’s quickly become a staple in our pantry. Just a teaspoon or two adds zip to our stir-fries or marinades.
35 of 47
Wholesum Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt Bar
This is Wegmans knock-off version of the popular whole-nut bars, but it’s more affordable and just as tasty, in our opinion.
36 of 47
Organic Unrefined Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Whether we’re baking, sautéing, or just want to enhance our beauty routine (coconut oil makes an excellent eye-makeup remover), we always grab a tub of this stuff.
37 of 47
Red Chile Sauce
A few tablespoons of this red sauce bumps up your Mexican dishes from “good” to “hot damn!” It’s marketed as an enchilada sauce, but we drizzle it on our tacos and just about everything else.
38 of 47
White Cheddar Pierogies
It’s like a hug in potato, cheddar, and dough form. We fry them in butter when we want to go to our happy place.

California Skinny Roll
There's a robust selection of sushi in all sorts of preparations, but we always gravitate towards these crabmeat- and avocado-only rolls. We wish they weren't called "skinny," but we love that they're stuffed to the brim, with way more meaty filling than your typical lunchtime sushi.
40 of 47
Thai Style Red Curry Chicken
When we’re in a rut with our microwave meals, we reach for this. And at $4.99 a pop, it’s way cheaper than Thai takeout.
41 of 47
Singapore Noodle with Chicken & Shrimp Asian Bowl
The bouncy shrimp and tender chicken in this fresh noodle bowl make the dish a standout. A spin in the microwave brings the curry noodles back to life and makes for a satisfying meal.
42 of 47
Roasted Chipotle Salsa
This smoky chipotle salsa will take your nachos to the next level. And at $2.99 a bottle, you won’t break the bank.
43 of 47
Black Cherry Vanilla Sparkling Water
We’re fans of this entire fancy seltzer line — the coconut lime seltzer is perfect for summertime. And the black cherry vanilla seltzer hits the spot when you’re itching for soda but don’t want the sugary buzz.
44 of 47
Organic Rosemary Olive Oil Artisan Rolls
You may not think you’d need frozen rolls in your life, but once you try these, it’ll all make sense. Toss a few in the oven for fresh baked bread with dinner, or warm one up and stuff it with organic turkey slices for a quick sandwich.

S'Mores Premium Ice Cream
With marshmallow-flavored ice cream, marshmallow ripples, graham cracker swirls, and milk chocolate bits, one spoonful takes you to s’more heaven (where it's totally acceptable to polish off a pint in one sitting).
46 of 47
Spicy Green Sriracha Sauce
Instead of using hot red peppers like its traditional sibling, green sriracha is made with tomatillos, jalapeños, and cilantro. A squeeze adds a bright acidic kick to turkey burgers, soups, and vinaigrette (or pretty much anything you can think of).
