  • Frozen sweet potato gnocchi in butter and sage sauce

I’m absolutely in love with their Chinese frozen meals. They are great for when you don’t want to cook a big meal. Also their Organic Banana Chips. Mmmmmmm. I will be so sad when I move back to Iowa and the nearest one is 2 1/2 hours away instead of 20 min.

Ohh – their party size meatballs are PERFECT.  You put them in the oven for a half hour and incorporate them into the sauce and it’s amazing.

We don’t go to TJ’s anymore, mainly because we get fuel perks for shopping at our local Giant Eagle (plus it’s way way close), but I always loved their pineapple salsa.

LAMBRUSCO! I like me some fine wine, but Lambrusco still does it for me hehe.

TJ’s taquitos are a busy work night staple in the teenyB household.

SO swears by TJ’s oatmeal and ginger bar soap.

The list goes on: frozen mango, the sweet red peppers (the kinda long skinnyish ones that come 2 in a pack are delicious!!!), the oatmeal/cranberry/white cholocate drizzled dunker cookies, frozen blueberries, the non-sulfured dried cherries are a staple in my homemade trail mix, flour tortillas, roasted red pepper hummus, fresh pizza dough, and the frozen mahi mahi. I also use the three buck Chuck to cook (it seems like everyplace else it’s still two buck Chuck…I’m jealous!!!). TJ’s also carries the Kennebunkport blueberry beer (seasonal) which is about the only beer I will drink.

I think I just posted my grocery list haha…I know where I’m going tomorrow.

@Treasure43: 

Chocolate clouds like turtles… pecans, caramel, and dark chocolate. Somehow it’s the perfect ratio of nuts to caramel to dark chocolate. My TJ’s does not stock them year round, it’s always a pleasant surprise when they’re in stock. If yours has them, get them! They’re amaaaazing.

I just went and couldn’t find the curry chicken salad you recommended at mine, but I bought some other chicken salad that looks pretty great! And I ended up making curry chicken tenders and rice for dinner, so you inspired that. Thanks for starting this thread!

@KatNYC2011:

I used to live in NYC and that Trader Joe’s was a nightmare! I would go with a friend and one of us would stand in line and the other person would go get items and bring it to the line (if we could get the stuff off the shelves before they were out of stock!) It was insane. I live in LA now and everyone complains about Trader Joe’s parking lots not being big enough, but I don’t mind at all since I can get through the line in under 30 minutes and not everything is sold out. 🙂

I love Trader Joe’s frozen foods for when you don’t feel like cooking!!!

Frozen tamales

Frozen teriyaki chicken and shrimp fried rice

Frozen naan (sprayed with I can’t believe it’s not butter spray).  Yum!!

I used to love their sesame chicked noodle bowls, but sadly they discontinued them

I have a jar of their yellow curry sauce I’m going to try this weekend, has anyone tried it?

Frozen gyozas, Two Buck Chuck (love of my life), the carne asada, and the bulgogi are my favorites.
