    Ok, so BoobyTrap and I were in Trader Joe's the other day and we tried a sample of this white cheddar cheese they have that has dark chocolate mixed in it. Sounds very WTF, but IT WAS ****ING GREAT. Bought some. Loved some.

    TJ's now has their own bread line. Haven't tried the others but the multi-grain is hella good. It's too dry to eat out of the package but it toasts/pan cooks nicely. Oh and they have these toasted coconut cookie thins that are...AMAZING.

    I'm guessing they can get the full retirement for the same price at Vons.

    Christ...the world is soooo upside down. It's an Employers market for sure. After a year, AT&T(my company) finally got a contract cobbled together that will see most of the current work force either retire, pass tests to move to other positions, or simply have to play musical chairs for positions that don't exist before the end of the 3 year term. Hooray.

    BTW...the new TJ's Sricha is realllly good. 1/2 the heat, but they replace it with a really nice flavor. Savory.

    My TJs sells a new (to me) beer called Boatswain Double IPA. At 8.something ABV a 22oz is sufficiently mellowing a the end of the day. If you like Lagunitas Hop stoopid this is a close match.

    Ok folks forgive me while I rant...

    I live in the West Hollywood area and there are 4 options for TJs. The one on Sunset in the old Laemlle-plex(underground parking/huge pain), 3rd and LaBrea(heavy traffic area/lousy parking/lots of numbskulls), the new one across from the Grove/Farmer's Market(which has the most inconvenient parking lot UNLESS you like driving completely out of the way or making dubious and highly dangerous left turns across 4 lanes of high traffic, AND my little convenient one with plenty of parking on Santa Monica near Formosa. Well...which one do you think got assed out in the 'we gotta close one' sweepstakes????? Yup. my CONVENIENT little one. I know...boo-hoo...but if this is progress I want none of it. It's not like my TJ's had no customers. LOTS of folks shop there. Including my neighbor, who has no transportation and walks there and back. The other three options literally guarantee that I will limit my shopping at TJ's moving forward. Do they give a rats ass? Nope...doubt it, because they have the Prius driving, texting/talking while walking their dogs a-holes that frequent the remaining stores. My suggestion to you Trader Joes... Bite my bag!
