I just found one of THE best cheeses I've ever had at TJ's!!

It's the smoked Monterey Jack! It looks like a wedge of cheese that's been painted with dark brown stain (probably Liquid Smoke). Very smokey on the outside and creamy on the inside.

Had it with crackers on Halloween night, and melted on cheeseburgers tonight! Fantastic!

I love Trader Joe's and everything everyone already mentioned. Also I like the frozen gnocchi (complete meal in a bag!) and their soups in the cartons. The sourdough bread makes the best toast ever (imo) The Trader's nearest me does not carry a lot of fresh produce but does carry all the great cheeses and condiments and wine.

Olive Oil
Arborio Rice
Chicken Stock
Frozen Mexican Burritos for my husband
Corn Salsa (mix with some sour cream and hot sauce - YUM!)
Tortilla chips
Dunker cookies

They used to have awesome potstickers but they no longer carry them which is okay because I go to the Asian market and get better quality ones now.

Trader's is the only place I can get Applewood bacon. It's the best I've ever had. Unfortunately, it is no longer smoked so the flavor is not as intense as it used to be but still better than hickory smoked bacon.

They were giving out samples of a Swiss cheese made with yogurt a few weeks ago. Had to be the best Swiss I ever ate so now this is my new found "treat" at T.J.'s. Try this great yogurt cheese, it comes as plain Swiss or Pepper Jack and it's in the sliced cheese dept.

T.J's is also the only place I can buy a huge plastic container of fresh, really fresh basil. And McCann's oatmeal.

As for the potstickers, I buy them too and the T.J.'s near me still carries them. I buy a couple bags and keep them in the freezer. I make my own dipping sauce.

We buy their frozen vegetables, they can't be beat for taste. After eating Trader's Joe frozen corn, no one would ever willingly go back to grocery store canned or frozen corn, lol.

Oh yes, my dh loves their potstickers, too! I can't eat them due to my allergies, but they do look good.
