You can drive a car before consuming mass quantities of coffee???

Okay I'll admit twice a few months ago and when I awoke I had to drive for my coffee. First time I drove to McDonalds (they're closest) and the coffee was burned. Second time I drove to (shudder) Starbucks and at least it wasn't burned, although neither was as good as my normal Trader Joe's bean Columbian.

I've been playing with some WFM blends (Volcan Mind Blend, or tomorrow's Vavoom Blend) but while they're nice for a change I'll still take my TJ's Columbian over any of them day in day out.

Greg, you're talking about the coffee that comes in that beautiful tall black container with the Toucan bird on it right? You're correct about how wonderful that coffee is! The container is so beautiful it's a shame to throw it out.

Yeah, Kay, it's the Toucan coffee. I've been drinking that as my main coffee staple for several years or more. While I'm having the WFM tomorrow and for a few days, I have not only an almost full two pound container of TJ's Colombian (these days two pounds = 28 ounces) but I have a spare 'nother container in my pantry.

I'm really grumpy when I wake up and I don't wanna do anything except drink coffee, and no damned driving involved! That's why the extra container.

I've recently purchased a scanner (HP 5590) and I scanned and uploaded the image for you Kayelle.

Looks like they changed the look since I last bought it Greg, although this one is very pretty also.
I think I'll buy some to put in my extra Kerug cup and save myself some money on the very expensive pre filled cups for the machine.

They used to carry a wonderful lemoncello.

I bought it once but by the time I needed more they no longer stocked it.

Disappointing!

Egg-Nog coated Almonds. They were a holiday item 2 years ago.

The last time I posted about TJ's chocolate it was discontinued.

Favorite Item from Trader Joe's?

While browsing TJ's last week I picked up a fur bar pack of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Imported from Belgium. These appear to be the replacement for the earlier discontinued bars. They contain a minimum of 56% cocoa solids. This is very good dark chocolate. Just the right bitterness level with a creamy finish. Worth a try.

I found another frozen new favorite at TJ's the other day. This is food for the gods........
The flavor of the truffle sauce is delectable. I added some asparagus pieces to it for a delicious gormet meal for two.
Highly recommended.

Oh, most about anything they sell! My very favorite was a shelf-staple jar of hollandaise sauce but, alas, it has been replaced by a similar item in the fresh-food department. The new version doesn't have the same flavor or texture. Don't know why they got rid of the first kind (it wasn't full of junky stuff or additives) but I miss having that jar in the basement for an impromtu eggs benedict. Now I either have to plan ahead and make sure I use the new kind before its expiration or else just make my own. I do make a quick, easy and yummy from-scratch hollandaise, but that jar worked a lot faster and was nearly as good.

Nowadays I'm kinda partial to their frozen fish. If I have a taste for fish but not heading to the grocery store I can still fix it for dinner - and it's so good you can't tell it was frozen. Mostly...

Kayelle, that package and your recommendation decided it. 7:00PM Mass on Sunday since the church is about 2 miles from our nearest TJs! Time to make my list...
