One word: DUNKERS. In any flavor really, but I love the chocolatey coated chocolate chip ones. I will warn you though, they are mildly addicting.

They have a roasted red pepper spread, mango chutney (great on chicken from last night, or the chicken you cooked tonight!), I always get the monterey jack cheese sticks, and lately we’ve been on the garlic naan bread *dies*

They also have a kettle cooked popped snack, it’s got stuff like quinoia and black bean and sunflower/flax/lots of other seeds. I think it’s dusted in a sugary powder. So yummy.

I have some TJ’s TP fans in the house. It’s more strong than soft, but apparently that’s what you need sometimes.

We live off of TJ’s.  The must have items are:

– cilantro & chive yogurt dip

– jalapeno greek yogurt dip (both with the no-salt tortilla chips)

– truffle marcona almonds

– Dried pineapple rings

– coconut yogurt

– toscano cheese soaked in syrah

– their wine – we really like the Liberte, but believe it or not, their boxed red really aint bad either!

Cheese! A lot of their cheeses are less expensive, but better quality then what you’ll find elsewhere – especially things like Gouda or Parmesan.

The number of times I’ve purchased a block of gouda cheese and one of their fresh baguettes and just eaten them is… embarassing.

All their fresh pastas are pretty good.

jellybellie:  They quit carrying that roasted red pepper spread. (I know because we buy that for my fmil several times a year)

TJ’s pizza sauce

extra creamy diet rootbeer (it’s as good as the sugar kind-and I NEVER say that!)

key lime pie (in the frozen section)

some awesome frozen croissants (both regular and chocolate) that you proof in the fridge overnight, and then bake in the oven in the morning. (to DIE for!) 

Also in the frozen food section “Journey to the Center of the Cookie” (don’t read about it, don’t think about it, just get it!)

so many wonderful candies and cookies…SO good!

teeny tiny tacos (both beef and chicken) -they’re not actually called teeny tiny tacos…it’s what I call them. they probably call them mini-tacos.

lots of trek mixes and dried fruits and nuts. 

dried pineapple!

And so many other wonderful things!

They have a blueberry goat cheese that is amazing on grilled pineapple. Otherwise, cookie butter, orange chicken, and cheap booze. A lot of their frozen veg is nice.

redvelvette:  Not here they didn’t… we just bought another jar yesterday! We’re in Queens, NY. They still have it on Long Island as well, my parents live out there and we bought it last week when we watched my dog 🙂 That stinks that they stopped carrying it by you!! 🙁

Their tofu is the best I’ve ever had. And I love that it’s sectioned into to compartments.
