My dad is a total smartass. Anyhow he started working at TJs a year and a half ago. One day he was working the register and a woman and her daughter came through his line and they had a recipe with them and my dad asked them what they were making and she said "Truffle Surprise" and my dad said it sounded interesting and asked if they had found everything on their list. She said they didn't have any truffles and my dad said "Sure we do, let me get some for you." He walks off and comes back with a box of the chocolate truffles and hands it to the woman.
She tells him that she's looking for this kind of truffle.
He never even considered the other kind of truffle which made him feel like a dumbass.
got these last night and holey hell they are good. almost like Funyuns but with a sweet onion flavor
I Trader Joes!
I recently became a fan of Trader Joe's!
The wife loves the TJ's Rosemary Ham.
I picked up their Kansas City BBQ Sauce for like $2.50 bucks and cant wait to try it out. I am also in love with their coffee, and it is SO inexpensive! These beans stay fresher than any others that I have bought, and best of all they taste delicious!
I've been hooked on the Tangerine Juice (currently in season) and have always been a fan of the green chili & cheese tamales. The frozen wild salmon is excellent and reasonably priced, same with a lot of the frozen fruit that I use to make smoothies with.
We used to get our produce and a few other things at Sprouts, averaging $40/week. Then we would go to Vons to pick up everything else, and would average $120!
Now we do this instead:
Trader Joe's = $50.00
Sprout's = $40.00
A total of $90 for the week!
Besides the obvious savings, its nice not to be in Vons and be asked the same question in every damn aisle "how are you doing today can I help you find anything"? I swear... EVERY aisle!
