People who live near a Trader Joe’s do not realize how lucky they are to be near a Trader Joe’s. While I was in LA, I made it a very conscious effort to stop by the TJ’s and buy a bunch of stuff before heading home. I bought so much that I had to check my bag in. I’m not even kidding, it was a lot of food. My favorite things are the Plantain chips and if I could get a regular shipment of this stuff on a monthly basis, I would totally buy it. My second favorite is the sponge candy because it reminds me of Violet Crumble but cheaper and in smaller quantities. I love Trader Joe’s but actually going in there made me realize that while I love the snacks, the whole place is chaotic, loud and I’m okay visiting once in a while.
