A taste of spring

These English spring peas from Trader Joe's come already shelled and ready to cook. We loved their fresh taste and just-picked texture. A real surprise for a prepackaged convenience product in the produce section.

- Maureen Fitzgerald


English peas, $3.49 for 10 ounces, at Trader Joe's, 2121 Market St, Philadelphia; 215-569-9282; and 300 Route 73 South, Marlton; 856-988-3323.

Mayo makeover

If you love mayo but don't love cholesterol (or animal products), a better plant-based alternative is now available. Hampton Creek's vegan, gluten-free Just Mayo tastes pretty close to the real thing, but without the extra calories of some other faux mayonnaise offerings.

-Samantha Melamed
Just Mayo, $6.99 at Di Bruno Bros., 930 S. 9th St., Philadelphia, 215-922-2876, or 1730 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, 215-665-9220
