Frozen cheese enchiladas. They aren't as good as my local restaurant, but they are easy, cheap, and pretty tasty.

I love their hummus! They also make a good falafel plate. It is in the "convience" food section. Also, the dried apple rings are good.

Their Pound Plus bar of chocolate was my friend for a week or two. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> If you like brie, they have brie raspberry phyllo rolls that are good. I'm not a huge fan of brie but I think if you like brie you'd love these. Their frozen veggie samosas are OK, and I also like the tamales and enchiladas for a quick cheapie dinner.<br><br>
The candy cane Joe-Joes are highly addictive and delicious. I bought artisan bread there that was nice too (I usually make my own but this was good.) Chocolate covered dried cherries and praline pecans - also ace! Anyway, I try not to go there too often because it's a whole store full of impulse buys but it's great on occasion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
The garlic hummus was a little strong for me and I love garlic. I think if I got it again I'd get a container of plain hummus too and mix them.

I just opened my one-plus pound of chocolate (milk chocolate) -- I was not impressed. Cadbury Dairy Milk is much better. Though neither is a health food. Hah!<br><br>
My husband loves their version of Greek Yogurt.<br>
I like their prosciutto and their pancetta.<br>
Guacamole (same brand that our Costco carries, but smaller packages)<br>
rice cakes<br>
oyster crackers<br>
TJ's version of triscuits (but without the soybean oil)<br>
Quadratini's (though I just found a cheaper store)<br>
almond butter<br>
peanut butter<br><br>
I'm mad at them though. They just stopped carrying Rice Dream Rice Milk, and replaced it with TJ's brand, which has carageenan in it (my dd can't have, and TJ's was the cheapest place anywhere for rice milk)<br><br>
My dad's girlfriend raves about their blintzes and some kind of frozen ice cream balls (she used to work at TJ's).<br><br>
I got their pre-brined turkey at Thanksgiving. It was REALLY good.

I can't ever even find half the stuff that makes these lists at my must-be tiny TJs. I've never been to another one, though. can't sell alcohol in a grocery store in my state, so I've never enjoyed the wonder that is "two buck chuck"<br><br>
I love their praline pecan granola<br>
Convenience frozen Mexican food is all pretty tasty.<br>
Just tried cashew butter for the first time - pretty yum!<br><br>
Lots of other things too but I am drawing a blank...

Among many other things, the Wasabi Covered Cashews were a HUGE weakness of mine. I only found them at the TJ's in Eugene, Or and even they stopped carrying them. Probably for the best <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">.

The little frozen basil squares. And parsley squares and garlic squares. Oh so easy to throw into stuff as I'm cooking.<br><br>
The little mini/personal pizzas are super yummy, but not so great for the budget.
