    The Scotch unfortunately doesn't look like it is coming back. that was an insane deal. People did not believe that those were original and bottled exclusively for us. I never say never though with our products, hopefully we can come up with another private label deal on those scotches.
    Make it happen capn!

    Just got a case of the Fischer Ale at the Tustin store! They only had a couple left and said employees were already running through the limited supply they did have!

    They carried a pre-cooked rack of bbq babyback ribs for $10.99 that was nice to slap on the grill for a quick reheat but I haven't seen them for a bit.

    I sometimes get their carne/pollo asada, kalbi or maui shortribs (all boneless) in the meat section. From the freezer section I get the italian meatballs or Kalbi ( asian style with crosscut bone).

    The only non-meat stuff I get are the garlic naan, peanut butter filled pretzels and white cheddar popcorn.

    I went to the new store in Claremont yesterday. A very nice store, with much wider aisle's than I have seen at most TJs. I picked up some frozen Tempura Chicken. It was right next to the Orange Chicken in the frozen section. Haven't tried it yet, but the package does say white meat, so hopefully it won't suffer the same fate as the Orange Chicken.

    I've heard it's pretty decent.

    There are quite a few items in the store Im still yet to try. I've had plenty of opportunity, just dont always feel like eating on the clock.

    I live off of the Green Chile & Cheese Tamales !!! If you look in my freezer, it would appear that I've raided the TJ's frozen foods section

    I also really like the black bean & cheese taquitos, veggie burritos, veggie enchiladas, and they also have a really good frozen manicotti that I recently had. The fire roasted guacamole is out of this world ! Hands down the best guac you'll find in a store. The peanut butter filled pretzels make for great snacks, as do the mini crackers with cheese in the middle.

    The beer selection is decent. It sucks they jacked up the Chimay prices, so now I'll just buy those for the same price at a liquor store where they'll come cold. Plus, the Chimay at TJ's isn't as good because they are on the top shelf and exposed to so much light. Well, at least for me I can taste a huge difference in comparison anyways. I admire that they carry several North Coast brews, in addition to the Samuel Smith products. Since I'm going off on liquids, their mango juice and fresh squeezed orange juice are great too !

    The frozen pizza is nothing to write home about, like KJ said. As a matter of fact, I have gotten sick twice from a certain frozen pizza I bought at TJ's.

    it sucks that beer isnt a TJ's emphasis anymore.

    now its all wine, wine, wine and more wine.

    which is ok, I like wine as well...

    but I miss the days of truly rare brews coming around. I guess thats why I was so excited and ran to another store for a case of the Fischer ale

    We were sampling them at the Culver City store and they arent bad at all, but they taste very similar to your generic orange chicken, just a little bit lighter.

    The Fischer Ale is a great summer brew and I love the Samuel Smith Organic Pale Ale.
