|The California Slab Apricots are the tastiest dried fruit|
I know of. Last week they ran out and I feared it was a disaster!
Luckily it was temporary -- though TJ's often discontinues
products without explanation.
|Marinated artichoke hearts are less expensive and no different|
than more expensive ones -- I haven't tried the cherry peppers yet.
|Cereal -- another delicious and cost-conscious item from TJ.|
|Chocolate-covered EVERYTHING is the TJ mark of distinction. The "pound plus"|
chocolate bars are good too, even though it's just chocolate covered chocolate.
Hard to resist almost any candy they sell.
|I like this mango chutney. Also at a good price.|
|TJ's salsa and "Cowboy Caviar" are both too tempting,|
especially with TJ's blue corn chips.
|Oddly enough, TJ's sells very useful dish rags.|
|I like many kinds of cookies and other sweets at TJ's -- especially the vanilla wafers and ginger snaps.|
The crystallized candied ginger is a great price, fun to eat if you like HOT candy, and a useful ingredient...
|... and as I said ... the Joe-Joe's|
|Coffee Bean Blast is my favorite of TJ's ice creams.|
|Zesty red juice! Nice for breakfast. Handy ingredient, too.|
|The samples on offer provide a hint of what to do with various|
mixes and ready-made stuff. Today was pumpkin spice
corn bread with bacon. Seasonal, of course.
UPDATE: other people's recommendations:
- Adam: "Roasted/Salted Marcona Almonds with Rosemary ... a bit pricey, but highly addictive."
- A fellow yoga student: Pumpkin ravioli -- another seasonal special that was out of stock when she looked for it. She asked TJ's to save her 4 packages.
- Alice: something for your chocolate-covered collection.
- Another friend: NOT the Irish tea!
- Louise: Dark Morello Cherries (see her comment)
