If I stop one person from buying that "lightly smoked" sardine stuff it will have been worth it.

Anyhow. We are trying the oatmeal dippers tonight. Those are like the choco chip dippers so I have high hopes for these. Also my friend picked up the balsamic butter sauce vegetables which sound highly recommended from here so I will ask her how they came out. She also picked up the Australian lamb chops based on these recommendations so I guess we shall see.

The oatmeal chippers/dunkers are dangerously good.

Excellent with a cup of tea. But I can't buy tubs of them because I eat them ALL. Not good.

We like so many things there!

Pasta (dry and fresh) and sauces
Pizza dough
Refrigerated salsas
Meats
Frozen chicken tacos
Frozen orange chicken
Meats
Those nutri-grain type cereal bars (my kids are hooked)
Chips
Frozen buttermilk biscuits (New big hit!)
Frozen croissants (both plain and chocolate)
Frozen wild blueberries (good for muffins!)
Chipotle ranch fries
The TJ equivalent of frosted mini wheats
Frozen cheesecake
Oatmeal dunkers
Those almonds that are dipped in chocolate with turbinado sugar and sea salt!

Things that we have not liked
Canned NM green chile (we are New Mexicans so big dissapointment)
Jarred Alfredo sauce
I don't buy a lot of produce there. We haven't been hugely impressed with it.

All this TJ talk has me planning a trip there for tomorrow!

I use TJ's Soy Protein Powder and some of their vitamins too (which they sell at a great price).
