Trader Joe's: THE LIST!

A couple weeks ago, I wrote this post asking for your suggestions for fun things to buy at Trader Joe's. And you guys definitely came through... I just wrote down a three page list of your recommendations. I am headed to TJ's today and I'm so excited to pick up some new items.

But I want to share the wealth. I thought it would be fun to share this big, ol' list of deliciousness with everyone. Here it is. Enjoy!

I have had a friend move to America and is always posting pictures of trader Joe's, but I don't quite get it a super market? Because I don't think anyone gets that excited about any super market in Australia :P

there are so many of these I buy at TJ's too! I love their British muffins, pizza dough, and turkey jerky! I also love their coconut shea smells like summer/vacation and I've had such dry skin lately.

No one recommended the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches???? Get them, please. For the baby's sake!

Don't forget produce. I LOVE their heirloom tomatoes and the 3 pack of organic romaine lettuce. Isaac loves their greek yogurt. I buy the big thing of vanilla bean and use it to make super delicious banana bread.

Oh and flowers!! Best place for daffodils. And greeting cards! 99cents and super adorable.

I will literally be buying all of this the second TJ's opens in austin!! I have heard so much about their pizza dough and excited to try the tikka masala :-)

Erika @ rouge + whimsy said...

I just literally laughed out hard. the "cat cookies for people" are just cinnamon cookie-cracker things in the shape of cats. my husband loves them and sings "cat cookieeeees for people toooo!" when I buy them.

they're in a clear tub. I recommend the alphabet cookies too :)

You forgot the Reduced Guilt Guac, SERIOUSLY amazing! Especially when you eat them with the taquitos!
