On Friday October 18th, a new Trader Joe’s near my home. I was so excited that I rushed after work to not only get my free reusable bag, but to look around at all the goodies I’m always hearing about! When I got there it was insanity!!! I guess I wasn’t the only one who’d been waiting for Trader Joe’s.
I couldn’t take the crowd, but I did manage to get a couple of things that I wanted to try. First being this:
Now, I LOVE Chai tea, so this just sang to me. I tried it that very night. What impressed me most was, many times you buy these mixes and they say to use water or milk. If you use water it usually tastes horrible, but this didn’t! It tasted amazing just with water alone. I can only imagine what it tastes like with soy milk!
4 tuna cans – This stuff rocks!
The next thing I tried is Trader Joe’s Roasted Seaweed Snack.
Crunchy, a little salty, a little fishy and you can eat the entire package and only take in 60 calories! I’m thinking about making a mock tuna salad spread with this. Some experimenting is definitely in order.
I give this:
So far, Trader Joe’s hasn’t disappointed me. Sadly, it’s still incredibly crowded to go into. I’ll have to wait a few weeks until the novelty has died down a bit, so that I can go in and fully and calmly investigate things.
