Cisse Cocoa Co. Super Thins Coconut Cashew
Brownies are good. Chips are good. Brownie chips are even better! We love Cisse Cocoa Co.'s new Super Thins that resemble a crisp, delicate cookie but have a distinct brownie taste. We're also impressed with Cisse's in-depth sourcing information on their website. The brand tracks cocoa's journey from a Fair Trade certified Dominican Republic cooperative to a Belgium processing plant to their New York co-packer.

Wedderspoon 100% Raw Organic Manuka Honey
This cloudy, unfiltered Manuka honey is made from New Zealand-based hives and is tested to ensure that every batch contains high pollen count from the manuka tree and live enzymes. We also love Wedderspoon's gourmet Wild Dandelion Honey, a particularly flavorful raw honey divine in green tea, mixed into oatmeal or eaten atop brie.

Popcorn Indiana Sweet Potato Cinnamon
A nubby snack shaped like a tortilla chip, these heavily seasoned popped snacks are an interesting vegan and gluten-free chip alternative. Corn, sunflower oil, cane sugar, sweet potato, cinnamon, natural flavor, paprika and salt make for a relatively sweet, dippable snack that would pair well with a Greek-yogurt/honey dip. I just wish this brand sported a Non-GMO Project verification seal.

Fishpeople Albacore Tuna in Yellow Coconut Curry
We're huge fans of Fishpeople for their clean, delicious meals featuring sustainably caught fish, and their commitment to traceability. Every package contains a 7-digit code that you can enter on Fishpeople's website to learn who (yes, who) caught your fish and where your veggies were grown. For example, the albacore tuna in my pouch of Coconut Curry was likely caught by Dan Glissendorf, captain of the fishing vessel Valor III. Pretty cool, right?
Bonus: Each pouch takes just three minutes to prepare.
