Feel Good Organic Acai Powder
"One of my Amazon faves is Feel Good Organic Acai Powder ($11 for four ounces)," said Allison Childress.

"This Betsy's Best Gourmet Almond Butter ($15) is my favorite almond butter to add to oatmeal, spread on toast, or eat with fruit," said Kaleigh. "It can be difficult to find in grocery stores, so Amazon is a great option for purchasing it."
"My absolute go-to to order on Amazon is SunButter," ($34 for six jars) said Chelsea. "It's the perfect food-allergy-friendly seed spread, so I always like to have a jar on hand, but it can sometimes be tricky to find in stores — and expensive! It's cheaper on Amazon, so I like to stock up there."
