  1. I never think of rhubarb outside of baked goods. I’m impressed with this different take on it!

    I have never tried kombucha since I feel like it’s expensive and I won’t like it. 🙂

  2. That’s great that the South Street Whole Foods encourages you to bring your own containers for bulk foods. When I lived in California, I used to go to bulk olive oil stores where I could get my olive oil & vinegar containers refilled, but unfortunately here in Philly all the places that sell bulk olive oil tell me that is against health regulations, so I have to buy a new bottle each time. 🙁
