After seeing so many different blog posts on Trader Joe’s and products from Trader Joe’s, I decided to find one to visit on my road trip last week. Luckily, there was one around the corner from my hotel.
The exterior and interior of the store were plain looking and I wasn’t sure that it was going to be much different than any other grocery store I had been to. But the products on the shelves and in the freezers made it unique. Many of the items had interesting flavor combinations and I was impressed that the items were reasonably priced. The staff were also friendly and helpful. They assisted me in locating several items I was looking for and were more than willing to suggest some of their personal favorites. I hadn’t planned to buy Greek yogurt but walked out with several containers to take back home with me. Good thing I brought a cooler on the trip!
Some of the other interesting items I picked up were the Sugar Chocolate Coffee Bean Grinder, Speculoos Cookie Butter and Sea Salt and Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds. I thought the grinder was especially interesting. I’m not sure what I’ll be using it for. Maybe sprinkling a bit of it onto of a hot chocolate? I wished I had picked up a Cinnamon Sugar grinder as well. And of course there were a few other sweets I picked up. Okay there were a lot of sweets. I love sweets, what can I say? I’ll have to do some research on savory items for my next visit.
What are some of your favorite products from Trader Joe’s and which are some of the ones to avoid?
