I agree on the mac and cheese.

 

I have to try the Hirissa sauce. Been looking for a good one outside my local Halal truck

never had their cheeses before. Will have to try them. My wife and I get these salted caramel chocolate balls that are good from there. Also, they have these small blood oranges that are like the cuties that peel easy and are smaller. Those are good.

Wife loves the stuff.

 

They have good dips too, I reccomend the jalapeño artichoke dip if its still around.

vodka

Only one place for this. Costco. Their Kirkland is just rebottled Grey Goose and cheaper. Plus you dont need a membership to buy alcohol, just tell them you are there for booze and they will let you in.

They do a good job with frozen, cheeses, and snacks.

 

Produce is fine but short shelflife.

 

Proteins are not good. Every marinated item I have tried has been way too salty.

Its as hipster dooshy as a retail chain gets, but they do have good stuff.

God yes. Youll see so much vegan BS there its ridiculous. But they have a select few good things. I hear their wine is good too. I dont shop there much so Im trying to find stuff to actually get there thats good. This article helps cause when I go there I just end up getting like one or two things. Never anything cold or frozen cause its usually at least 2 hours from where I live that I go to one. Had one in SA abut I didnt shop there much

Ive never been to a Trader Joes, but there is a new one in Orlando... is it really that good?

 

Yes, please go, they'll have something there that you'll love.

Cookies, chips, sausage, wine (it's really inexpensive and not bad), I've purchased tomato bisque soup in a carton, olive oil...look just go, try it. But really look at all their items.

They have inexpensive wine from many regions (and lesser known varietals)... some hit. some miss, but when they do you do not feel like you have lost much in the process.

 

my wife will take pics of the labels that hit and buy more of them next time. they also carry some decent vintners.

Do you have the Vivino app? (I think I mightve mentioned it once before) You take a picture of the label of wine and it brings up the score of the wine, professional reviews, and consumer reviews from people who tried it. Also explains the taste and goes into great detail as well as gives the price. Found it YEARS ago and has been one of my most used apps. When I showed it to my BIL he went bananas on howncool it was and kept asking me to scan each of his wines for reviews on it

If you go you'll be hooked like the rest of us.

To me, Trader Joes is a novelty grocery store. Im not doing my main grocery store purchases there but if I want a select few things that are unique and quirky then Ill go there

Exactly, you can't do your main shopping there, it's just to pick-up little favorites.

It's kind of like going to Target. Target is not the best clothes store or grocery store, but it's got enough for you to find something pretty good at a decent price.

Also, my Trader Joe's is not gross.
