I’ve been considering off and on to purchase from vitacost.com for awhile now. After doing some price comparing at Whole Foods I decided it was worth it, but I needed to wait until I was able to order at least $49 to get the free shipping.
In terms of my experience with Vitacost I will say I ordered on April 28th, and received my package the morning of May 4th. It’s slower than if I was to order at say Amazon or the like, but next time I’ll make sure to order things (IE TOOTHPASTE) before I actually need it, I was having to really stretch the toothpaste out for days, haha! Anyways when I received the package I noted that all my items were secure in packaging as you see in the video. They were careful to package things in zip baggies and the glass bottles were wrapped in paper and this cool thin cardboard stuff. Having ordered off Amazon before and receiving broken glass bottles, I really appreciated this!
Here is what I received and how much it cost on Vitacost and how much it would cost in my local Whole Foods or local stores:
Vitacost organic apple cider vinegar w/ mother 32 ounces (2 bottles) – I got a buy one half off deal so it was $6.06 (WF $9.98)
Chocolove Dark chocolate almond sea salt bar – $1.99 (local stores $3.50)
Alba Botanica natural aloe shaving cream – $4.98 (WF for same scent 7.99 or generic nasty mango scent at TJ for 3.99 but I HATE the smell)
Tom’s of Maine botanically bright peppermint toothpaste – $5.19 ($6.99 at WF)
Jason’s tea tree deodorant – $5.19 (WF I think is $7.99)
Tom’s of Maine botanically bright spearmint toothpaste – $5.39 ($6.99 at WF)
Mumm’s organic sprouting radish seeds – $5.89 (unknown, I USED to be able to buy radishes for 80Â¢ an ounce)
Frontier products citric acid (16 ounces) – $6.89 (WF is about $20 per pound in the bulk bins, YIKES!)
Chocolove Dark chocolate coffee crunch – $2.49 ($3.50 in local stores)
Bob’s Red Mill gluten free pie crust mix – $2.54 (locally it’s about $4.00)
Bob’s Red Mill double acting baking powder aluminum free – $3.99 (locally I think it’s about $4.50)
Tom’s of Maine sensitive winter-mint toothpaste – $3.99 (WF $4.99)
Coconut secret coconut aminos – $4.15 (locally it’s about $7 at whole foods for the tiny bottle)
Bob’s Red Mill toasted carob powder – $4.49 (locally $4.99)
I saved $10 for using a fellow YouTuber’s Vitacost referral link.
In total I spent: $52.44 if I had purchased all of locally it would have cost $97.82 YIKES! That is a savings of $45.38 ($35.38 if you don’t include the 1 time discount). Definitely worth it, plus I didn’t have to go to the store, it was shipped to my house for free. Big plus when you don’t have a car and have to carry it all on the bus!

Yeah It’s a tiny video I know. It’s a tradition for us now to go to the first market of the season, rain or shine! We needed the rain so I’m not mad but I think It’ll take like a week to dry out my shoes. Plus you get to see the elusive husband, what a smile.
For my tiny haul I got:
6 pound jar (1/2 gallon) raw local honey – $30 plus $2 jar deposit
6 bunches MASSIVE onions – $4.50
meat sticks – $5 (we bought 3 pieces)
Candied jalapenoes – $6
Eh a little high when I think about it, but we needed the honey.
