Does this make anyone else really happy? Happy enough that you would whip out your cell phone and take a pic? Well, it makes me that happy. I love Trader Joe's. I do about 1/2 to 3/4 of our grocery shopping there, and I just got a chance to go last night and stock up on some staples we love. I buy all the kids snacks there, so I have to get there at least twice a month :).

If you haven't tried Trader Joe's Chipotle Pepper Hummus, I suggest you stop what you're doing, drive to the nearest store, and pick some up. It is fantastic! I always buy a few large containers of the regular flavor too, cause all the kiddos are huge fans. The hummus is also fantastic on their Ezekiel Bread, yummm. Great snack, and great for you! I would put Hummus on almost anything though, I really love it :).

The girls also loovve their organic yogurt, Vanana. (Banana & Vanilla flavored)

What are your favorites from Trader Joe's? Your kids fav's? I would love to hear!

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

I love TJ's too but the one we have here in town is incredibly small! But my kids love the snack-type foods I get there...have you tried the TJ's frozen mini tacos?? So good!! I'll have to get my kids the yogurt you mentioned!

Be sure to stop by my blog when you have a chance...I'm hosting a super fun art contest/giveaway! I have a feeling your kids could create some wonderful art projects to share in the contest! And the prizes are fantastic!!!

Oh I so miss me some Trader Joes. I dont even have a stinking Whole foods near by. Life is tough.
Personally I loved the fact that I could get a bottle of two buck chuck there. Great wine for the $$$

Hi Kate! I love their salsa and their peanut butter filled pretzels. I also just tried their multi-grain crispy round crackers--delicious with cheese!

My favorite "no-no" is the TJ Vanilla Jo-Jo's which is their form of Oreo's. They have real vanilla bean in the cream. Oh My!!!! I can't leave them alone! My kids really like the Chicken Apple Sausages too. My kids think they are hot dogs. The Blue Moon coffee beans are good too!
