Here Is What I Like So Far From Trader Joe's!

Recommended Posts

I absolutely love the gluten free granola -tropical forest. I had it with faje greek yogurt which is completely natural.

The tortilla chips with an Identity Crisis were delish!

The bean and cheese taquitos were on the list and were scrumptious.

I noticed that if you wacked someone in the head with the The Food For Life loaf of bread, they would end up in the hospital! It weighed over 2 lbs i think and hard as a rock! The quinoa bread seemed a bit lighter, but still not so appealing. That was disappointing. I didn't see a good selection of bread, nor did I see any english muffins or crackers. Do they carry that at TJ's?

What else is good because I browsed and I think you really have to dig to find the items on the list and things of interest.

I really like the Basmati and Wild Rice Blend. It has no seasoning, just dried veggies. It's great in porcupine meatballs, chicken rice dishes and stuffed peppers.

You can't beat their prices on nuts. I think I paid something like $2.99/lb the last time I bought cashews. Their price on almond meal is great too. I also get Lara bars and Cliff Nectar bars there. Their rice pasta is cheap - $1.99/lb, and they have spaghetti, fusili and ziti. Their banana waffles in the freezer section are nummy. They have envirokids cereal and rice bars there at great prices. THe gluten-free brownie mix and gluten-free granola are fantastic. Their brown rice tortillas make a great wrap after you nuke them for 30 seconds or so.

Other people have told me that they like their rice bread, but I think it is horrid, and it goes all moldy the day you buy it. Our store doesn't have the rolls and bagels that O've heard about in other stores.
