That Orange Chicken is the best thing ever there! I can't eat it right now, but I would always cut the sauce packets with fresh orange juice to make it go further served over Jasmine rice. Soooooooooo good! Better than any I've ever had in a restaurant!

And, I agree CG.......customer service at TJ's is bar none! I adore their attitude on every level. No, I don't work for them but I could. I love the shirts.

I love those itty bitty potatoes because they're easy for me to pick out of a dish and give him mine.

Seconds on the dressing. I picked up a bottle last week for the first time (I don't know if it's a new product or not), and was really impressed. We emptied the bottle last night, so I'll have to grab a couple more.

TJ's is 5 miles away and is on my regular shopping loop, so it's an easy stop.

How sweet is it? All of you rave about this, but I'm really reluctant to try it if it's sweet.

Wow, the olives are outstanding MsM! We really enjoyed them with our before dinner wine tonight. Don't know if the shelf stable heavy cream whips like fresh, but my guess it does. I love it for sauces and soups. It's a little hard to find in the store but a very helpful person in a Hawaiian shirt will always take you to it with a big smile. Love that store!

Yes, it's sweet, but in a good way to my tastes. However, cutting it with equal parts of fresh orange juice improves the flavor packets a lot imo.

Yup, it does and it does not seem to weep as much as fresh whipped cream.

The cream tends to be thick and lumpy when you open the carton, don't get discouraged just whip it like fresh and enjoy.

Thank you for the info. It would be nice to have whipped cream whenever we need it.


Thank you Kay. I will need to look for it. Sometimes I want cream in my coffee/tea or to add to a recipe but don't have it.
