I learned about the frozen garlic cubes here too and now it's a staple in my freezer. It's amazing how many things I add garlic to now...well it IS healthy, tastes as good, and same nutrition, so why not

From this link, 6 Things to Buy at Trader Joe's - CBS MoneyWatch.com , here are 6 things MoneyWatch says to buy at Trader Joe's: cheese, fresh flowers/plants, toilet paper, chocolate, nuts/trailmix, and maple syrup

And from this link: 4 Things Not to Buy at Trader Joe's - CBS MoneyWatch.com , here are 4 things MoneyWatch says NOT to buy at Trader Joe's: produce, wraps/sandwiches, sushi, and Two-Buck-Chuck-wine (well what are they expecting for 2 bucks...3 bucks on the east coast)

...sorry CWS, maybe next time
although TJ's seems to be staying
within US borders for now
Ventura is blessed with TWO stores now. Remarkable, since we are not a large city. I wish everyone could have a TJ's. The brand new one is closer and bigger than the other one, so I'm a happy camper.
I found the best buns there, great for the monster hamburgers I did the other night.
They look like the large round floured rustic loaves of bread, but much flatter and about 7 inches across. Boy, do they ever toast up nicely in the broiler with olive oil, and are chewy good, holding up without falling apart. Tonight I'm using them for pulled pork sandwiches, they will hold up well to lots of sauce.
Yummm

I don't agree on the Things Not to Buy list: for one thing their bananas are a good buy as long as you don't take small ones and some of the produce is cheaper and better than in the supermarket, and the Two Buck Chuck is very good wine, my BF buys it all the time and a lot of people swear by it.

I don't know why they recommend their toilet paper. I tried it and was not impressed. Also, they have cut down on the varieties of nuts lately.

I did not like their TP, but agree with the rest. Their chocolate is very good.

On the not to buy list, their produce is hit or miss. I love that I can find hardy kiwis there when in season for a fraction of the cost that I find them elsewhere. I agree with the wraps/sandwiches & sushi. I want to like these items from TJ, but am usually disappointed. The two-buck chuck is decent enough to serve to others - and no one would guess what it is....unless they are a TJ fan.

Their enchilada sauce is superb, as is their tuscan marinara sauce. Garlic naan, orange chicken, eggppant hummus, milk chocolate smores, almond thins, peach champagne, I can go on and on.

Our latest favorite are mango bars. They come in the perfect size too...only 60 calories each. Nom nom nom...now I want some.
