Gopher Express West seems to have more vegan options than the Coffman Gopher Express, though they don't have as much by way of frozen items. Lots of Holy Land products, more well-stocked than its East Bank counterpart. I really love that this Gopher Express started selling almond milk single servings -- great alternative to soymilk.

After the renovations, Gopher Express West opened with a whole new range of veg food! They carry a ton of vegan and vegetarian stuff, including the newly added Holy Land products. They are cheap, filling and yummy. They also carry ABC cookies (which are absolutely fantastic -- you must try them!) and veggie jerky, both displayed at eye level in great locations. The vegan food they carry is carefully chosen (they carry some of the best products around), reasonably priced, fresh, well advertised, and well displayed. Gopher Express and Gopher Express West should be regarded as role models for other campus stores across the country.
