The semi-irregular "Cool stuff at Trader Joe's" thread
I am addicted to the Sublime Ice cream sandwiches. They are like little Chipwiches.
They are carrying a pretty good selection of Nitrate free cold cuts and meats now too. The Ham is excellent and I had a piece of kielbasa last week that was down right tasty.

The German - not Italian - made Proscuitto with Triple Cream Brie cheese and pan rustique bread. Delicious combination.

they have chocolate croissants in the freezer section that taste just like the ones you get at a french bakery... here in the States.
i also get the nitrate free bacon.
and they're the only grocery store around me that carries crème fraîche.

I can vouch for Go that the Garlic Pan Rustique is very very good. I can see it being a good fit with the Brie. Ive never had it with those items but have made a sundried tomato/caper confit that was very tasty.

I also buy my scotch there
15 year old Glenlivet for 29.99. A bottle of that at Bevmo is $36.99

Those chocolate croissants are good!
I like the nitrate-free hot dogs with the pinjur sauce.

The chocolate croissants are very good. The Some Crust Bakery in Claremont has always been the benchmark for me, but these are their equal.

I got all four of the TJ's organic chocolate bars to try. Oddly, Milk Chocolate Truffle was my favorite.
And I keep buying the Silver Cloud Shiraz for $2.99. It has screw off cap. It's inoffensive and portable, I mean, heh, um...it's good!
It's kind of a hike to go to TJs from downtown LA.
We have a Japanese Supermarket, though.
I'll wait for that thread.

Do you go to Mitsuwa or Marukai? Cause I go to both.

Sushi stand is good too.

Shinsangumi(sp?)stand for chicken skin on a stick at Murakai in Gardena close to work.

Mitsua is closer to home so I go for necessities like tampons, green tea (bags, sometimes the powder and usually the big bottle by Kirin). They also have a big lemon drink I get.
Green tea and chocolate Ice cream bars. I don't have a freezer so I have to share or eat them all.
Man Pocky rules.
I don't actually buy groceries and cook at home.
I usually just eat at the neighborhood joints on weekends because lunch is provided here at work.
Johnny Rockets is moving in to First and Central. I am so looking forward to that.
