Nope, took the ILX. Taking the Coast Highway was a blast. It's true. LA drivers are just plain nuts.

One evening, two cars blew by me at such high speeds, I couldn't make out what they were. I was cruising at 90 mph and these people easily doubled that.

If you have people over often, I find that this is a great appie to serve at only $5 a box. Comes with 12 servings, but be warned you'll probably need a few boxes because, speaking from experience, you'll probably end up eating the first box yourself.

It's weird. The first time the GF brought it up, I wasn't really on board.

However, having been there numerous times now, I see the wrongs of my old ways.

It's a great intro to organic foods.

It's crazy because for a "boutiquey" store that I perceived it to be, their product/price ratio is through the roof. Some of the things they sell are so good and yet so inexpensive it's mind-bottling.

I always go when in Bellingham. Every time I go I try to pick up something new just to try something new.

Best stuff I got from Trader Joes is this sweet sriracha bacon jerky. Probably really bad for you, but it tastes damn good. I got a as a gift so I don't know what the value is like, but the package portion is small.

Pretty sure you can get these at Superstore by Presidents Choice for a reasonable price. Exact same shape.

Another thing I tend to get are their boxed soups (though with the new Vitamix at home this is less often), their goat cheese medallions (unbelievably good value considering a log here is north of $10), and this:



I don't think it's a TJ-exclusive, but holy crap add some hint-of-lime tostitos and you have a one-person party!

I've never bought more than a hundred bucks worth from TJ, so no idea.

They accept Visa. The place is packed with Canadians on the weekends. If you bring a bag with you, you get to enter for a draw. Not sure how often but it's at every register. Canadians can participate.


While you're down there, check out Jack in her, I mean, the Box. I just buy their two regular tacos for $1.19 (used to be 99 cents, lol). Then head over to McD's for their dollar drink (any size). In Lynden, the McD's, Jack in the Box, and Burger King are all at the same intersection, lol.

There are five Jack locations I go to. There's one in the Birch Bay Mall (on I5), one in Ferndale, one up the street from Fred Meyers, one next to Harbor Freight, and one in Lynden. There might be one or two more further south. Anyway, save your receipt and get code for free tacos on next visit. Details on back of receipt. True frugal Asian stuff, mang.


EDIT: Don't forget to check out Edaleen Dairy. If you can, go to their downtown Lynden location. Like good christians, they don't open on the day of the lord.

Duh! Why didn't I think of making this thread! Good call OP!

I've been going to Trader Joe's since I was a little boy. My grandfather lives in Santa Barbara so a TJ's opened up there when I went down to visit when in the early 90s. It's always been one of my favourite places to get food. Whenever I've stayed in the US I shop exclusively there and am fully satisfied.

My go-to dish over the years is just the best: Trader Joe's Mac & Cheese. Do yourself a favour and stock up.


I've always loved the salads, for a quick healthy snack and can't beat the price. This one is my fave: Chicken, 2 kinds of beets, goat cheese, balsamic.



And these are goddamn addicting. Sea salt and Turbinado sugar dark chocolate almonds. Be warned, you will be addicted.



Love seeing other people's favourites! That's it...I'm going down to stock up.

It was $5.99 for that pack. Was just there today and picked up a pack. Will give it a try tomorrow to see how it tastes... :P

Check out Boomer's Drive In which is 5 minutes south of TJ. Their waffle fries, deep fried mushrooms, and milkshakes are great! Burgers aren't bad either
