Welcome to The Good Grocer!
The idea for The Good Grocer was born in 2014 when I noticed there were no healthy options for pre-made college care packages. I had been buying cleaner, healthier snacks for my family for years, so I knew I could provide a healthier care package that didn’t sacrifice on taste. And as it turns out, college students did want healthier options over the junk food that they are inundated with on campus.
But not only college students loved our care packages. We started to see our customers sending care packages to everyone…fathers, sisters, friends, clients, bosses, friends in hospital, hospital staff. It turns out everyone loves healthy snacks!
We’ve evolved beyond our original Healthy Snacks Care Package to offer amazing options for every diet or lifestyle.
You’re here because you want to send a great gift that says “I’m thinking about you and I care about you.”
“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate.” -Alan D. Wolfelt
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create products that you can be proud of,
that are worthy to represent your love and well wishes.
Our care package + your love = Happiness Delivered.
But who are we, anyway?
I’m Cathy…mom, entrepreneur, obsessive label reader and chief snack curator.
I obsess over putting together the most delicious collections of snacks…”Does this need more fruit snacks? Are there too many cookies? (Note: there are NEVER too many cookies) This Truffle popcorn is the bomb, it must go in everything!” I also obsess over clean ingredients. There isn’t an ingredient label that I haven’t read. I also wear the hat of proud soccer mom, bedtime story reader and chief Lego assembler.
This is Ian…dad, restorer of classic trucks, operations guru and head chef.
Ian has been restoring a 1971 Dodge truck for 12 years. It’s his top priority…after being an awesome dad, tirelessly supporting his wife in all her endeavors, ensuring the family is fed healthy home cooked gluten-free meals, and training a lovable, independent (disobedient) pug named Oliver.
These are our Chief Taste Testers.
If they give a snack two thumbs up we know it’s a winner. They love kittens and pugs, video games, and artichokes. Do not leave snacks unattended around these two…especially chocolate.
This is Oliver.
He is the receiver of snuggles and back scratches. He is the giver of unconditional love and wet kisses. His super power is spreading love and happiness wherever he goes.
This is us.
We are a small, but mighty, family owned and operated business. But you are our hero. Without you, and without your love and support for your friends and family, this small business of ours would not exist.
We are committed to sustainability and strive to be good stewards of our planet and the folks who live here with us. Our entire product packaging line is made in Dallas, Texas, from 100% recycled cardboard. We purposely pack our boxes to reduce extra packaging materials. We recycle 95% of the materials that come through our warehouse. And we support like-minded companies that have a direct impact on the environment such as 4Ocean and One Tree Planted.
We know how important clean ingredients are for you! We guarantee that every snack put into your box will perfectly align with those dietary needs and be fresh on delivery. And if you’re not completely satisfied, we will make it right!

“The Healthy Vegan Snacks Care Package was a birthday gift for my (middle) 31-year-old daughter. She's been Vegan for two years now and loves every minute of it. Her facial expression was priceless when she opened and glanced at each and every item. All positive comments with each snack. Thank you for making my daughter a happy Vegan.”
