We eat a lot of bananas at my house.
2. Competitively priced organic produce
Some of their organic produce is nearly as cheap or even cheaper than conventional produce at other stores: baby lettuce, romaine hearts, oranges, baby broccoli, celery.
3. No rBST in the dairy products
I love their organic plain yogurt with no fillers (as cheap as the regular yogurt!), 2% milk, and Berkeley Farm’s buttermilk. I also love the sliced havarti (full fat, skip the lowfat version) and extra sharp cheddar.
4. No super weird/yucky ingredients
Trader Joe's products have
- NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives
- NO genetically modified ingredients
- NO MSG
- NO added Trans Fats
5. Roasted Plantain Chips and other snacks
6. Whole wheat couscous
This is a great whole grain that can be prepared in under 4 minutes in the microwave. Perfect when you forgot to make rice. I buy my brown basmati rice and most of my pasta at TJ’s too.
7. Super-firm tofu
It really is firmer than any other tofu I’ve bought. It fries up really well and is great in stir-fries and pasta salads.
8. Brownie Truffle Mix
No hydrogenated oils (most mixes do) and so so yummy.
9. Organic Corn Flakes
It is hard to find non-waxy chocolate in the U.S. TJ’s Belgian chocolate reminds me of the stuff I had in Europe. The Pound Plus milk chocolate and 72% cocoa dark chocolate are both delectable, and an excellent deal for gourmet chocolate. I also love the chocolate orange sticks. Maybe a little too much.
What are your favorite TJ products?
(Yes, lots of you bloggy folks have already posted about this.)
