Trader Joe grabs
Trader Joe's from 11oclock position forward:
The Black bean Tortilla chips are very crunchy and provide more protein than most chips.
Cinnamon almonds are crunchier than most store almonds and pack more flavor.
The Classic Bacon is really Wellshire bacon I believe (has logo)....it reports 40% less fat and I find that keeps its promise. I will say the last 6 mths, this bacon isn't as good (date: Sept 2016). Whole Foods carries the Wellshire brand.
Cod fillets....I find their cod fillets better than most store brands because its only lightly breaded and the cod is thicker than most. In addition, be careful when you buy fish at stores....if it doesn't say WHAT fish it is, that's just scary.
Chicken broth packets....these are totally great. Much better than bouillon cubes at the store because they seem more flavorful and obviously dissolves better/quicker. Nice for warming some chicken dish up without drying it out.
Vanilla caramels....these are very addicting because they have just enough caramel and its very milky tasting. A definite comfort food!
Their black bean burrito is very good and you only need half of it to feel full. You can find in the refrigerated section. Its not spicy, not bland. Feb 2017 update: Ever since I listed this, it is never in stock at the Joes!
