Trader Joe's



Super thankful for my neighborhood supermarket,
Trader Joe's, I just love ya!!!


I try to get all my grocery goodies from TJ because let's be honest, they have everything at such a resonable price.  Move over Central Market because my go-to items at TJ are always spicy hummus, dips, fruit, veggies, chips, nuts, salad, wine, and desserts.  AND, the best part of my shopping experience is snagging a baby cup of coffee and sampling a taster that I most often am lured into buying.


My momma is the best gift giver ... Trader Joe's giftcards, love it!  And considering she was the one that introduced me to it in Cali, it's quite fitting.  Who doesn't love free groceries?!


I am always excited to try new finds at Trader Joe's, 
so please share what your favorite find is if you are a TJ shopper!

I am so jealous we don't have Trader Joe's in the south. LOVE IT! We always spend lots of time in the summer in Cali and I love to do my shopping there!

Oh, yes, I love Trader Joe's. In fact, I'm headed there in a little while!

There are so many things I love. Their cheeses, hummus, baked lentil chips, peanut butter, salt water taffy, and, of course, their wine! So many more things, too!

I was considering a TJ's post. Great minds think alike, I guess. :)

No Trader Joes in Boise, so I haven't been yet but there is one in Minneapolis so I need to check it out. I have heard such good things about it.

We don't have Trader Joe's here in Utah but I hear great things about that store!

I LOVE Trader Joe's! The closest one to me is two hours away...so so so sad. I think I love everything there! I'm a big fan of their tomato soup and my husband loves the chocolate covered blueberries. My dog really likes their peanut butter dog cookies too!

Natasha said...

i am obsessed with TJ's!!! the best little finds too...they have chocolate covered banana bites--my favorite!

Miss Sweet Tea said...

They have a new dark chocolate/black sea salt chocolate bar that is to die for...literally! Please try it, soooo good! It's up at the front by checkout and has a ship and wave on the front.

Also, their $2 buck chuck is so fab, huh?! I pretty much love everything I buy there.

Jessica said...

We just got one here last year, and its been so much fun...no more 90 minute drive! I was there yesterday, and my new favorite would be the spinach tortellini, with chopped tomato (they have these funky brown tomatoes) and their tuscan vinaigrette dressing. A-ma-zing.

I know it sounds weird, but I LOVE their basil plant! I use so much basil in the summer and get tons of use out of that $3 plant! Oh and yummy cheese too!

Emily said...

Oh goodness do I ever love TJ! My favorites are the new dark chocolate covered peanut butter wafers, the AMAZING Choc. Chip cookie ice cream sandwiches... seriously try them! I also love their fresh produce, wine, and everything else they sell there :)

Sarah said...

I love TJ's! Their frozen entrees--sweet potato gnocchi, shells with brie and asparagus, and flatbread with caramelized onions and prosciutto are some of my favorites. Basically, I love everything there!

Oh, and their inside-out carrot cake cookies are to die for! :-)

Kristin said...

I am obsessed with Trader Joe's!! My favorite grocery store, I just wish there were one closer to me. I have to drive about 20 minutes to the closest one but it's worth it!

Michelle said...

Everything at Trader Joe's is good!!
I am there all the time. :D

They sell DELISH madeline cookies that my son and I devour - lol! If you like Thai food, they are starting to sell a lot of good Pad Thai and curries in the frozen section. OMG and the Candy Cane Jo Jos during the holiday season are the BOMB!!

Michele said...

Oh, I miss Trader Joe's! I lived on NE 45th St. when I lived in Seattle and would go the nearest one (I can't remember the street it was on). We are finally getting one in Dallas!!! Woo Hoo! It will still be a drive for me to get there, but it will be well worth it. Even though I love TJ, I still don't think you can beat the freshly made tortillas at Central Market :)

Hilldog said...

So jelous- My sister has one in Cali,but we don't have one in my part of Texas yet...

Ocean Dreams said...

I totally agree that Trader Joes is amazing. I'm sad to leave it today - it's my last day in Cali, boo!

Rachel said...

Lindsay said...

Trader Joe's is our favorite!!! Love so much stuff there. The Carne Asada is amazing!!! The flax seed chips are delicious. The fish is tasty. I could go on and on :)
