    I went to Trader Joe's for the first time today. I am currently eating Boeuf Bourguingnon: Beef & Vegetables in Red Wine Sauce.

    Verdict?

    Will go to Trader Joe's again.

    They have pork buns in the frozen section, I buy 2-3 packages every time I stop at TJ's. I've had some from the Asian markets but are never as good as TJ's.

    ^ yes.

    chocolate covered pretzels
    chocolate mochi ice cream (little ice cream balls covered in some doughey goodness)
    white cheddar macaroni and cheese (the one in the box)
    tandoori garlic naan bread (good with hummus)
    ny-style cheesecake
    also their new spicy beef w/brocolli is pretty good for someone who is not a fan of frozen meals.

    I will think of more.

    Oooooh I miss TJs so much now that I no longer live in Los Angeles. I am able to find/make substitutes for most of their products here in Hawaii (albeit at additional cost), but one thing I've completely been stumped by is the dried mangosteen. SO GOOD. SO MISSED.

    I went a few days ago and all the leftover nonperishable holiday specialty stuff was in baskets by the registers. Everybody who brought their own bags got to take something. It was cute.

    the frozen one or the boxed one? the frozen one out of the oven is yummy.

    picked up their frozen fried macaroni and cheese balls the other day, but have yet to make them. guessing they will be the same, full of yum.

    Mochi is some sort of rice gelatin-y thing. It is indeed delicious. I like the green tea ones.

    TJs indian food is insane. Frozen brown rice (I love that I do not have to wait 45 minutes for brown rice) with garlic naan and saag paneer? Yes please!

    Also they have awesome meatless meatballs. Noms!
    At least in *my* awesome opinion.

    orange chicken
    dark chocolate covered pretzels
    chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels
    jalepeno cheese puffs
    $22 liters of Jameson
    Blueberry Green Tea
    Pesto w/ the yellow label for like, what 3 bucks? pff.
    a bunch of things i can't think of
    along with what the others have said, and i've still yet to try so much mentioned in here.


    Only lame things:
    Most other customers annoy the shit out of me.
    Parking just takes awhile.
    Not only does produce go bad, but tortillas and bagels have gone bad on me hella quick multiple times.

    the place is too great though.

    This random other customer at TJ's told my boyfriend to try Simpler Times. He said it tastes good and you can't beat the price or the alcohol content. My boyfriend took his advice and bought 12. I don't really drink a lot of beer (I am a liquor/wine drinker) but I tried it the next day and I really loved it! I was really surprised you could find a beer that had good flavor but was still kind of light for that price! I am converted and a total fan!
