Trader Joe's

Post by Kazu » Mon Mar 08, 2004 2:37 am

I LOVE Trader Joe's. The food is good, plentiful, fresh, and inexpensive. Every time I go to the supermarket, I feel ripped off, thinking it's simply better if I just go out to eat all the time. After every visit to Trader Joe's, I feel like I bought a bunch of great stuff, at just the right amount, for just the right price. You can't beat them when it comes to perishable goods, and they have great wines and snacks. I should put a permanent link to their site on Bolt City...

I second that. I love their chocalate Mochi which is to die for and their sushi is fun to pick up on the run and just about everything else is awesome. The company has a really good work environment too which I love and everyone is so friendly.

I concur. Trader Joe's is the ideal model for supermarkets. Plus they actually still give out free samples of stuff. For free! That's crazy.

My favorite section: The breads. I'm a carbophile, and they have bread at Joe's that's packed with exotic stuff such as flax, poppy seeds, barley, and something called sorghum. Which I like, of course. The farther from Wonder white, the better.
