1. Lucky Bee Honey
Rave Reviews: This isn’t your normal honey. Take your pick of flavors including orange blossom and avocado blossom, then pick which size of glass jar you want and enjoy all the hard work these bees put into that sweet, sweet nectar!

2. Grove Salsa
Rave Reviews: This popular salsa has been around for a hot minute (get it?), and for good reason. You can take home a jar in a range of spice levels depending on how much heat you can handle, and there’s also a range of flavors. Dip into tequila lime, cilantro lime and plain habanero.

3. The Coffee Ethic coffee
Rave Reviews: Coffee Ethic has been brewing some of our favorite coffee for decades, and once they started roasting their own beans, we fell in love with them even more. Then in early 2020, Hy-Vee added Coffee Ethic beans to the shelf, and we almost lost our minds. Hy-Vee carries six varieties of whole bean coffee from the Ethic, and if you need you beans ground, there’s a grinder in the coffee aisle.

4. Leong’s Cashew General and Sweet and Sour sauces
Rave Reviews: If you haven’t had Leong’s Springfield Cashew Chicken, we don’t know how you call yourself a 417-lander. This stuff is so good that it’s been written about in the New York Times, and ever since the Leong family started bottling those delicious sauces, you can (almost) recreate this dish at home.
