I think I'm in the minority but I've yet to like TJ's, the wife likes to buy stuff and I admit when walking through the store a lot of items make me think oh shit that might be good only to turn out to not be good lol. That said my youngest is obsessed with these chai mints they sell luckily I know enough people that make regular TJ runs so I don't have to go down.

I believe it's made by A-Sha. I mean, Made in Taiwan, dry (as in no-soup) instant noodle, have the scale enough to do OEM for TJ... not too many fits the bill.

The noodle is wider and catches sauce better than any A-Sha variants. Which I believe I've tried them all.

Got a bag of these last week. Just tried them. Actually different enough to be good.

Plus, of all things, they're Made in Canada.

Tiniest Chocolate Chip Cookies.

https://www.traderjoes.com/home/prod...cookies-076369

https://www.thekitchn.com/trader-joe...okies-23567874

I just left a spoon in the bag, gulolol. Pour it in da mouth. seal up the bag then repeat............ until they're all gone. Damn, they're addictive. Gimmicky, for sure. $3.99 USD for a small bag. Kind of on the expensive side. Christie's Oreo Mini's on sale $1.49 Day Save-On-Foods. Much better value.

The cookies look like something they might have at the Bulk Barn.


UPDATE!

Cot Dam it!

All out of Squiggly Nudes. Second week of October, maybe.

I always go to the, “What’s New,” end cap. Saw this Cake mix called, Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Roll Blondie Bar.” You know it’s good when only three boxes are left on the shelf. I don’t even bake, but gonna give it a shot.

They finally got some Kringles in. Pumpkin variety. Short Dated, so didn’t get it. I should have, because you can freeze them.

Daughter asked me to pick these up for her. I made the mistake of asking for Philly cheesecake bao, lol. Girl says, "All the cheesecake stuff is in this section." I was like, what? Anyway, I asked another person and they said, "Yeah, those are over here. You meant Philly Cheese Steak, right?" I was thinking Philladelphia Cream Cheese at the time. Anyway............ just made some last night. Nothing to write home about. Kind of like the Kimbap. After the hype and trying it out, they're, meh.

https://www.becomebetty.com/trader-j...teak-bao-buns/

While there, I ask about the Figo. Guy went to the back and came out with one and said, "It's free............. Once in a while we can do that."

https://www.traderjoes.com/home/prod...ch-bars-074742


Score! Until I got home and realized they were expired, LOL. Still good.


As mentioned previously, not everything at Trader Joe's is good. This shit is bordering on the worst thing ever made/sold at Trader Joe's. So bad I had to throw them out. I couldn't bring myself to give it to the birds, as they might die on the spot, gulolol.

Origin of female name comes from translation, "Lover of Horses." Makes sense

Damn............ guys at TJ's must like me for some reason. I went in the store with my usual go to TJ's, red with black strap, cooler bag. As I got to the registers, I realized I had the wrong bag. It had "NFG" written all over it (because it has a broken zipper). Anyway, I mentioned it to the guy at the till. He laughed at the NFG labels. As I was paying, the guy goes off to the front of the building and comes back with a brand new bag. Wow.................

Got the usual Philly Bao's and these amazing treats.

https://www.sweetontraderjoes.com/20...ds-review.html

Also, TJ's Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash........ tingly beats powdering any day............... MG1 senses tingling.

Was at TJ's in Bellingham this morning. They were giving out samples of this thing called, Mee Krob. It took two bites and I was in love with these snacks

Not to be outdone by Trader Joe's Kimbap, a local company is selling frozen Kimbap at Superstore.

$5.99.

https://cookoopapa.com/collections/moms-menu

Haven't bothered trying it, as I still have a few rolls of TJ's.

Agree............... I keep wanting to go to the one in Coquitlam. The Burnaby location is right next to Canada Computers. I knew there was something there. Last week when I was picking up some cables I drove around back and saw the Assi sign. Damn.

Went to trader Joe's today.

Was pretty busy.

There was a reasonable amount of stock for the Kimbabs

Didn't really grab anything else

They say they get a box or two of the Kimbap every few days or so. Gone by noon.

The green cooler bags have a light green inside liner. Did not know. I'm gonna have to check the other 6 or so cooler bags in my collection. Actually, more. Two shades of yellow, two shades of green, orange, red, blue, purple, pinkish colour........... Need black. White would be cool.

Here is an entrepeneur! But srsly, $10 surcharge for a Trader Joe's run is not bad!

Trader Joe's Grocery Run for You!
C$10

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...4797260192242/

Headed to California for a week and I return on 17th March.

If you want anything from Trader Joe's, do hit me up. I may not be able to carry liquids above 100m unfortunately (I can try, but we will discuss if necessary). The handling fee is $10 + the cost of items you'd like from Trader Joe's.

I am based in Burquitlam for pickup, or I can meet at a Skytrain station nearby.

A Trader Joe's canvas mini tote bag that costs about the same as a pack of gum is being resold online for nearly 200 times its retail price.

The Trader Joe's bags, available in blue, red, green and yellow, have taken social media by storm in the past week, garnering more than 11 million views on Tik Tok. Although some stores have reportedly been placing limits on the amount people are able to buy at one time, customers have been flocking to stores across the country and snatching up as many of the US$2.99 bags as they can, according to store employees.

Some have been reselling the bags on e-commerce platforms like eBay and Facebook Marketplace. As of Sunday afternoon, hundreds of mini tote bags have been posted on eBay with prices ranging from US$5 to US$500.

"As a seller, it just came naturally that I thought these would sell," said one eBay user who is selling four tote bags in all available colors for US$145 or best offer. They have already sold eight, and have one left in their store, according to their page. "I believe these were limited production," the seller added.

According to the page of another seller, who is offering a set of four bags for US$499.99 or best offer, one set has been sold and two more remain.

It's unclear whether these bags have actually been sold at their advertised price point, since eBay users can bid below the starting offer.

One Iowa-based store employee told CNN the bags were only available for a week before they sold out, with the next shipment not expected until September.

Another employee at a New Jersey location said the customer craze started about two weeks ago, and that some holiday-minded shoppers are buying them ahead of time. "Customers love it. They're buying a lot," she said. "Easter is coming up and they make great baskets for kids."

The viral scenes at Trader Joe's stores are reminiscent of the Stanley cup chaos last year: In December, Target introduced a limited-edition Valentine's Day collection of Stanley tumblers. Shoppers jumped on the items, in some cases quite literally. The proof was documented in TikTok videos that showed people lining up outside Target stores waiting to rush in to grab the items. Stanley has since reworked its product launches to make them less chaotic.

Stanley tumblers are over priced and over hype.


But the Owala Freesip water bottle is pretty solid. I usually load it up with a carbonated drink, even though it's not recommended, keeps the fizz in and the drink nice and chilled.
