Where to buy food, drinks made with clean-water crops

We've talked a lot about the environmental and economic promise of the clean-water crops being developed by the Forever Green Initiative. But some of these crops also make pretty darn tasty treats — many of which are available to buy online.

Below are some of the businesses selling products made with Forever Green crops. Keep in mind this list is not exhaustive, and some of these items might be small batches that go in and out of stock. (But if something isn't available right now, you can always check again at a later date.)
