My favorite thing was the thai iced tea, but I can't find it anymore. :( Other than that, it's Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap or the TJ brand.

Oh, how I miss TJ's... They were my go-to source for Miss Meringue meringue cookies. I loved everything about that store, especially their prices!

Val in the Rose Garden said...

Oh I love trader joes! My favorite thing is the Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup with their one ingredient rotini mixed with peruvian veggies from the frozen section. It has become one of our all time favorite quick dinner meals, because it isn't bad for you, but it is so crazy fast, and everybody loves it in this house.

Great idea. ;)

Love their coffee--tastes great and nicely priced!!

Bobbi Jo said...

Wow, choosing just one thing is difficult. We love Trader Joes. If I had to pick I would say my favorite thing is their cereal and granola bars. Great food to keep stashed in the car to keep us from making poor eating choices when out.

tara said...

I have two favorite things from Trader Joes.. The first is the fruit ices that are servered in the fruit,, They have orange and lemon and i think they also have cocnut.. I also like the frozen french onion soups,

Golden said...

Choose one thing? Just one? I can't get out that store without spending $75.00. I love their Crumbled Wild Salmon and the Rainbow's End Trail Mix. The kiddos love the peanut butter pretzels!

Our closest Trader Joes is about an hour and a half away. So far I have never been. We are planning a trip down in the next week or so. Hopefully next Saturday. I am anxious to try so many things from there including the Hummus I have hard that it is great. Thanks!

Motherhues said...

there are so many things! I make the greatest soups with their organic broths, they have frozen Naan that is heaven when baked and rubbed with a little butter, snacking on the california rolls or enjoying their great produce. I am so excited, we are getting a Trader Joe's in our town next month, WHOOHOO!

Ahhh Trader Joes!... Here's my $20 shopping list...

They have the BEST price on Blue Diamond Almond Breeze ($1.99). We go through a lot of it here so I'd get 8 quarts.

The Dark Chocolate Covered Chili Spiced Mangoes are awesome & have been only 99 cents lately. They go perfect with 3-buck-Chuck Cabernet Sauvingon!

Love Trader Joes! My favorite item is for sure the Organic Strawberry Fruit Spread... It is the only kind of "jelly" I will eat.. so good, not full of junk and doesn't have all of those little fruity chunks that ruin most "healthy" jellys for me :)

Meghan H said...

I can't get enough of the Joe's O's! I especially love the peppermint ones they do around the holidays. Sooo much yummier than Oreos but without so much of the bad ingredients found in Oreos. My TJ's also does Lychees midsummer and they're so good!
