I have only been a few times, but we served some of their two buck chuck at our wedding, and it was SUPER popular.  I am a snooty wine drinker, but their white zin is really good!

I got some sparkling wine there that was amazing- it was really sweet.  I actually served it at my wedding coincidentally.  The marinated frozen fish is really good too.

NOT the sushi.

I just went today, but all i bought was 3 flats of cat food. My cat is one spoiled kitty!

I really like their frozen marinated fish. Makes for a really easy defrost and cook meal.

dark chocolate covered pretzel thins. MMMM. and everything pretzel thins. and their hummus is so good, too. fish is always fresh! frozen edamame and frozen rice are awesome and more affordable than anywhere else. sea salt and pepper chips (chip crackers? not sure what they are called but they’re in a blue bag) πŸ™‚ 

everytime i go to TJs i remember how much i love it! i wish it was more convenient to get to for me.

There’s a Trader Joes only 2 blocks from me. Only problem is since it’s in NYC and in the ground floor of an NYU dorm it is ALWAYS packed. Both lines (regular and 15 items or less) always wrap around all the way to the front door.

@margsie: Go for it girl! We served 4 different kinds and only spent like $150.  LOL.  It was really, really popular!

Your entire list makes me wish Trader Joe’s was closer than 2 hours away πŸ™

love Trader Joes – list of things I get every time. Cabernet Pot Roast(good price per pound), all their frozen vegatables(balsamic roasted veggies, grilled eggplant, french country mix etc) for easy weeknight sides, rosemary and raisin crackers, egg white salad, sea salt brownies, I second the marinated fish – ahi tuna, cod is great for making fish and chips, red pepper spread, chicken sausage  – I could go on and on!
