WooHoo!!!!!!!!!


Actually, there goes quiet border line ups.............. need new strategy, gulolol.

I'd love for there to be a TJ's in Blaine but I'm guessing it's too close to the Bellingham location and would take away sales from that store. Blaine itself isn't populated enough to sustain 2 grocery stores either which makes it even less likely for TJ's to open up.

On my way to 24/7 Parcel, there was a new building going up. Half a block up from Edaleen Dairy. I'm not sure if that's going to be the TJ's. There's also an older building that screams TJ's that's empty. It's across from Ed and Eileen's parking lot.

Got word from one of the cashiers at the Bellingham location

So, which one?

The new building going up or the, "god it looks like a typical old school Trader Joe's," place.

First time going to Trader Joe's, got over whelmed by their selection of products

On the side note, didn't know Costco moved right next to exit 258, in front of Fred Meyer.

Tried a few of their products so far.

Ghost Pepper chips, not as described thinking it was going to be blistering hot like Blair's death rain chips, but has a good over all spectrum of flavor.

Crispy crunchy broccoli - pretty expensive for a bag that has about 40g of content, sort of addictive at the same time, has the similar crunch compared to potato chips.

Frozen orange Mandarin chicken - supposedly this was a popular product at the store, after making it as per instructions, definitely tastes pretty good, kids like it also. Would definitely buy again.

These are placed right by the cashier, god-forbiddingly good and the evil part? .99 a pack.

Just bought myself a tub of the standard peanut butter cups, pretty addictive

And also they have their own version of the flaming hot Cheetos. Haven't opened it yet to try it.

Not specifically for Trader Joes but I went down yesterday to pick up some car parts and a camera filter. No different to before - I declared my $170 worth of items and they waved me through like they always do.

Got me a 4 pack of TJ's Rhubarb and Strawberry Soda yesterday. Gave it a day and a half to sit in the fridge at 1º C. And sure enough, it's another one of those, "Gotta get one next time I'm there," products. It's not overpowering with flavour, but refreshing.

Not sure if I should chance the Lemon Elderberry one. I'm not that adventurous, hee hee.......

My newest addiction is the white truffle potato chips.

First bite and I can't stop eating it

Never had any issues with groceries for both Nexus and regular lane.

CBSA is quite generous in term of the amount one can bring back tax-free as long as they are edible stuff and for personal use.

Quick search on google:

https://blog.tugo.com/en/blog/cross-...ack-to-canada/

I've once brought an entire F&F BBQ party worth of groceries (I think it was U$500+, mostly meats with only disposable utensils, plastic cups and plates being non-edible goods) and the officer didn't even blink an eye and I was on my way without any taxes.

Bought a pack of the Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered cacao nibs and they're great! Not too sweet and has a nice crunchy texture from the cacao nibs.

Also picked up their 'everything but the bagel' seasoning which goes great in eggs
