OMG! I love Trader Joe's, it has been hard living in an area where there is not one for oh, a state or two, for the past 18-plus months. When at school in VT, I used to go to one in NH on a semi-regular basis - the tea is great and so cheap, Tom's toothpaste is fantastically priced, as is Kiss My Face shave lotion. Cereals are good and cheap (how can you beat $1.99 for Kashi just for friends). Sulfer free sun dried tomatoes for $1.49! Their chips and tortilla chips are great. Their jarred organic salsa also really good. Honey Nutty Seedy Crunchies are one of my personal addictions, as are their chocolate dipped, almond biscotti. I am traveling to New England for a wedding in August, and I am literally planning part of my visiting around a stop at TJ's for some non perishables to pack into my suitcase (sun drieds, some tea, promised SO that I'd bring him some turkey jerky, etc.)!
We will probably (hopefully!!) relocate around this time next year and I truly will be thrilled if we move to a place near a TJ's!
I'd add to this that I was among the countless, countless people who wrote and otherwise encouraged TJ's to get the GMO ingredients out of their house brands, and I am so thrilled that they are pledging to try to do this.
