Have you ever tried a bag the Orange Chicken in the frozen foods? It comes with separate pouches of sauce, that I always thin out with some orange juice to make it go further.

Their selection of all kinds of cheeses at affordable prices is excellent too. On the down side, I bought an expensive "free range" whole chicken to roast and it didn't impress me at all for the price. For whole chicken, Foster Farm from the grocery at 67 cents a lb on sale, will continue to do me just fine.
I love Trader Joe's for so many things.

Good thread MA......I'm looking forward to others favorites too.
I recently discovered the orange chicken, it is delicious! I like to cook it until it is nice and brown and crisp, so good, I usually serve with basmati rice also from TJ's.

I usually dislike most frozen foods (with the exception of plain frozen vegetables) but the frozen foods that I have bought from TJ's have been excellent and better quality than the usual grocery store fare.

MSC...be sure to cook the Tarte d'Alsace the longest recommended time...at least. Because you want the crust nice and crisp. It should be a golden brown. I even go a little longer because my oven is slow.

And guess what? I just tried their Tarte Aux Champignons. (only $3.99)..same crust, same creme fraiche, but with Emmental Cheese sauce and then....DRUMROLL...the mushhhrooooms....Porcini, Paris Oyster, Shitake, and Boletus.....the whole flatbread is BURSTING with flavor! Delicieux

Robo...have you ever tried their dark chocolate with tons of salty pistachios all sticking out of it...and on it...and in it...and broken up randomly? And the green is so bright...would look good at Christmastime. YUM

4meandthem...mmm frozen herb squares...i'm soo going to look for those.

Two other items we like a lot are the pre-cooked chimmichurri rice and the mushroom risotto.

I usually buy lemon curd at the supermarket but saw TJ's curd today. It is lower priced than what I've been paying so I grabbed a jar.
