Top H-E-B Picks from a Former H-E-B Checker

For some, H-E-B isn’t just a grocery store, it’s a way of life. Whether you’re new to Texas or not, H-E-B is a staple for any central Texas resident; including our fellow longhorns. H-E-B offers locally sourced products and a unique grocery experience. H-E-B is constantly creating new, unique products for its customers, and as a former H-E-B checker, I’ve seen a lot of what H-E-B has to offer. From unique ice cream creations to delicious coffee, here are some of my tried and true H-E-B favorites.


H‑E‑B Select Ingredients Mocha Lovers Trail Mix

H-E-B has multiple trail mixes, but for coffee and/or chocolate lovers like myself, the Mocha Lovers Trail Mix is the best trail mix to satisfy your sweet tooth and caffeine cravings. The trail mix includes dark chocolate covered cranberries, white chocolate covered coffee beans, dark chocolate covered coffee beans, roasted almonds and roasted cashews.

Something about the H-E-B Tortilla Chips is so addicting I could eat half the bag in one sitting. They go great with guacamole or salsa or even on their own. The chips are light, slightly salty and oh so delicious!
