My favorite Trader Joe's item is whole-wheat hamburger buns. I usually don't eat buns with my hamburgers if I can avoid it (ie: I'm at home), but I feel a lot better having one when it's whole wheat! I can't beat their version. I also really like their fresh baked breads... yum!

I had no idea liquor stores could be so strictly run! I go to school in Pennsylvania, and here they have two separate stores for beer and liquor. Also, they only serve huge cases of beer at the beer stores, so if you want to buy a 4-pack, 6-pack, etc... you have to go to a bar! Even places like Friday's and Applebee's will serve liquor to "take-out". I find that so strange! In New Jersey, everything you could imagine is served all in the same store.

Yea, L.A. still has the $1.99 price on the Charles Shaw. Other states are higher. My BF buys it every week.

Omg.... That is something isn't ? it when i moved to philly from New York.. a few years ago i was like that is sooo stfffrange. and they dont sell beer beverages in local stores here either. So if im going to have an event or party at my house, or the summer BBQ i have to make sure to shop for everything in the wine and spirit store ahead of time... and hope with everything good,.. that we don't run out of anything,,, Lol. Enjoy your Weekend

Have you ever tried the Fair Trade "Sumatra" coffee at Trader Joe's? What did you think of it? They were handing out tasters yesterday and I don't know if I was just really in the mood for coffee or if this was exceptionally delicious!! I'm totally unfamiliar with this but it was killer.

I have not bought any yet but I tasted it at the store too and it was awesome.

I picked up some Latin style black bean soup there yesterday.I will post the taste test later. I went there specifically for quinoa and was surprised at the 3.99 price.I have paid 6 bucks a box at other places for the same thing.

Hi airsidelimo...maybe you could use the searchbox above. Any Asian, Mexican, Middle-Eastern, and Indian dishes are spicy in different ways.

4meandthem...I've heard that Trader Joe's Bay Blend and French Roast coffees are not acidic and the most popular. Also Mocha Java and Italian Expresso aren't bad either. But Bay Blend is on my list to try.

I picked up some Carnitas (mexican seasoned pulled pork) for taco makings and it was awesome with a capital A! Just as good as Chipotle Grill's and it doesn't get any better than that.

I love the Sumatra blend too. Very smooth. My favorite item (besides the frozen gyozas-is that blaspheme on this website?) is the balsamic reduction. Very tasty over seared scallops and a bed of greens.

We are not adverse to frozen items, as a matter of fact, most of us appreciate finding out about new products that save us time and taste good.

The processed foods I have in my kitchen are ones that save me time and I cannot make them better. Oh, and they have no obnoxious additives.
