Join the Conversation: What’s Your Favorite Public Goods Find?
It’s no secret that I love food. I usually opt to have other people make it for me at restaurants because I’ve never been particularly dazzling in the kitchen, but these days I am staying safe at home and am left to my own devices. I recently discovered the membership-based service, Public Goods, and it immediately spoke to my minimal sensibilities with its bare packaging and simple bold lettering.
After two shipments and a third on the way, I’ve grown to love their products for more than just their looks. Public Goods offers a variety of staple pantry foods that have helped me become a bit more creative in the kitchen and appreciate cooking at home more. They also carry household items like dish detergent and personal care like deodorant which has also helped me reduce the times I venture out to more populated grocery and drugstores. From their beauty and cleaning products to their food items, I think I’ve found a new way to get products I love as well as discover some new ones.
In this post, I want to highlight some of my fave food finds and learn what you all love most from Public Goods!

Here we have my second delivery, which I went full food on! You can check out my full review of selected grocery items here.
I am now obsessed with Public Goods’ ramen packs. I’ve only tried the original flavor so far but it hits the spot perfectly with the sesame oil + soy sauce. For the lunch I made above, I cooked up some fresh broccoli in a pan with sesame oil, then made the ramen as directed. Once I strained the ramen, I added it to the pan with the broccoli to lightly crisp up the noodles.
For this lunch, I made Public Goods’ corn chowder, and a tuna salad sandwich using their sustainably caught skipjack, organic mayonnaise, and some celery and capers that I had on hand. Quite a tasty duo with plenty to go around!
