Oh Joe the Trader, those four years in Boone were tortuous without you. I’m so very happy you’re back in my life. You warm my cheap, healthy-food-loving heart like no other grocery chain.
To honor my recent reunion with my beloved Trader Joe’s, I thought I’d use this What I Ate Wednesday highlight some of my favorite Trader Joe’s products, because my eats have been pretty boring lately. Watch out, there’s a few!
- Salted Crunchy Peanut Butter
Just pure peanuts and salt, the way peanut butter should be, and all under $3, just one more way to fuel my nut butter addiction.
- Three Buck Chuck
I know it’s Two Buck Chuck in other luckier states that don’t tax alcohol as hard as they do hear in the Bible Belt. But three dollars for a decent bottle of wine? I’m not even sure what kind of vino magic this is, but it’s a beautiful thing.
Even though it’s not gluten-free it doesn’t seem to bother my stomach too much and it’s so much cheaper than any other brand. I actually used to load up on it when I was home on weekends because it was that much cheaper.
- Unsulfured Turkish Apricots
I actually tried these for the first time this week but I finished the bag in less than three days. I’m not usually a fan of dried apricots, I think they’re too dry and chewy, but these are sweet, soft and incredible tasty.
- Gluten-Free Cheese Pizza
Finally a gluten-free pizza for less than $8.
- Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds
These are scary good. I could seriously down the entire container in one sitting if you let me.
- The Coffee Selection
Trader Joe’s makes some dance tasty coffee. Their Peaberry beans are especially delicious.
- Wheat-Free Toaster Waffles
They’re extra good covered in their crunchy peanut butter =)
Do you live near Trader Joe’s? I can sympathize with those of you that don’t, it stinks!
What are some of your favorite Trader Joe’s products?
What’s your favorite grocery chain? I wish I lived near a Publix, those are pretty awesome.
