>Off the Beaten Path>Trader Joe's--what's your favorite item(s)?
Best Present Ever
We jsut got a Trader Joe's where I live. It was big news. I used to live in the big city, though, so I wasn't that excited ... I think TJs is mostly snack and prepared foods, and I end up buying crap I wouldn't ordinarily buy. They have a few things that are interesting to me, things frozen avocado slices (nice to have ripe avocados handy, and then not have half an avocado sitting around getting brown when I want a bit on my salad) and cheap frozen artichoke hearts (not easy to find and expensive in other stores). I don't think their nuts and dried fruit are that much cheaper than the bulk section of my health food store. And we don't eat most of the other stuff they have. My kids of course think we should shop pretty much exclusively there -- they'd happily live on a diet of chocolate, a variety of cookies and peanut butter pretzels.
Yeah, I'm running again at least some so I'm not too ashamed to poke my head in here. And someone insulted Trader Joe's wine so I had no choice really. Nice to see you SR!
Black Bean and cheese toquitos. Have them as an appetizer or snack.... but i could eat the whole package.
TJ's Thai Yellow Curry Sauce, yum.
1. Crunchy peanut butter w/out hydrogenated oils with unsalted peanuts (compared it with reduced fat JIFs still not sure where the all the fat comes from in TJ's PB...peanuts?)
2. Mozarella made with 2% Skim Milk
3. Whole grain wheat bread- tasty and not so cardboard-like
4. Greek yogurt 0% fat
5. mixed nut packs
6. pasta sauce with vodka
