Nothing on/in the market tops TJs enchilada sauce. Makes all the difference in your meal.

We just ate the TJs deep fried ravioli.
Fantastic smothered in our home made spaghetti sauce.

Also TJs Enchilada sauce is better than everything else I’ve tried. Really good. Too expensive online buy it off the shelf at TJs.

I don't know if I've mentioned this product before:

DELICIOUS!

I made an appetizer using these fragrant Mushrooms, added
diced Shallots and Thyme.

I very lightly toasted slices of TJ's Ciabatta,
spread on some of their Brie Cheese
and topped them all with the Mushroom mixture.

Big hit!

I still don't know what the attraction is to Trader Joe's. People act like going shopping there is the equivalent of a pilgrimage to Mecca. It's a grocery store, not a religious shrine!

Having spent the majority of my life in Hawaii, there were many
stores and restaurants that you have here in the Continental
United States that I did not.

My younger Sister moved to Los Angles after College in Oregon,
and would rave to me about Trader Joe's ... I didn't get, until,
we moved to Arizona.
It took me a good 3 or 4 years I think before I went to one
of these fancy grocery stores.
They have goods that I had never seen, but after having
tried some of them, I'm hooked!

The store that I nice right now is AJ's Fine Foods!!!
We don't have them here in Cowboyville, Arizona ... so I'm happy
to at least of TJ's.

My wife just picked up " Olive and Herb Mixed nuts". I never heard of a mix like this, and not that a I doubted it, but I guess I did doubt it :) and they were actually very good.

They didn't skimp on the nuts ( Pecans, almonds and cashews). Usually mixed nuts contains mostly peanuts. I have nothing against peanuts, but they dominate the flavor when in a mix.

There were dried kalamata olives and definitely rosemary.

Definitely will be buying them again.

She also got the every thing bagel flavored nuts. They werent bad, but nothing special.

Beautiful women work there and shop there.
That's enough for me.

It's easy to walk down a few short aisles and grab a few $3 packages that'll cover dinner for a few days.
Plus the 2 Buck Chuck wine.
Not a bad deal.

I don't usually use Instant coffee, but I tried TJ's, and it's pretty good. I'll but it again.

I also picked up a bottle of their coconut cold brew, but haven't tried it yet.

Went to TJ's and picked up 3 "New" to me items. They are all very good.

Trader Joe's Umami seasoning, Trader Joe's Raw honey. Trader Joe's Chocolate Mousse Flowers.

msmofet, That Mushroom & Co. Umami seasoning caught my eye, but I saw the first two ingredients are salt and dried onions. So I'm thinking of making my own version, minus those, and using only porcini, though I guess I could dry some cremini, to use instead of the white mushrooms, in the ingredients.

I'll be waiting to hear about your experience with this!
