I bought and devoured the Cowboy Caviar (basically corn and black bean salsa). It's almost sweet from the corn and the spicy sneaks up on you! They have a new matcha iced tea mix. I was super excited about it, but the mango and passionfruit flavors they added to it overwhelms to the point where you don't taste any of the matcha. I tried to salvage it by adding a bit of straight up matcha powder that I have, but it didn't work out too well.

Not food related, but I bought their lavender body lotion and man oh man it smells lovely. I love lavender, but have a hard time finding products that actually smell like it rather than bath and body works type "lavender" scents.

I was bummed that the drink mixes were mango or passion fruit. I'm glad I didn't get it.

For future, you can always buy unscented versions of things and add a few drops of lavender essential oil. A little bottle may seem expensive but its super potent and will last a good long time.

The white hamburger buns are damn amazing. Bought them for the first time this week, not expecting much but they were great.

Using them again for sloppy joes, then I'm going to try and freeze the rest

That's a great idea. Thanks!

Did they discontinue those spinach pizza thingies that were in the refrigerated section? I haven't seen any at my TJ's in a while and I wanted to buy a stash to keep in my mini-fridge at work!

Cafe twists are these airy, flaky, cinnamony, caramely cookies. They come in a plastic tub and I think you can usually find them on the shelves above the frozen foods. They are so good. If you've ever had cookies called elephant ears, they are a lot like those, but in twisted stick shape.

Wow! I've seen them, but I never even read the package because I just assumed they would contain butter or something. This is awesome news (or dangerous news, depending on your perspective). Elephant ears were awesome!

If you're ever in a DIY mood for these, they're pretty easily made using Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry.

I haven't seen the spinach pizza things in years. They used to have a tom/basil one too. I'm really sad. I thought it was because I was living on the East Coast for ten years, but then I came back West and nope alas gone. Why??? I miss them so much.

My husband bought their new Quinoa Teriyaki Sushi, and he was really underwhelmed. He said TJ's is not the place to go if you want vegan sushi, but that this particular flavor was just not good. It looked kinda unappetizing, too. Such a shame.

I used to think instant coffee was blasphemous but lately, out of laziness, I've been using trader joe's cold brew coffee concentrate. I emailed to ask about the caffeine content and got this response;

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Each ounce of our Cold Brew contains 80 mg of caffeine. We hope this helps!

So, um, oops I've been using way too much. Don't tell my cardiologist.

I went to TJs today and found an exciting new product! It's this Thai Dry Chili Paste, perfect for using as a base to make curries, or to stir into soups, etc. It a mushroom-based paste, but it's also got tamarind paste, lemon grass, kaffir lime, and more. I haven't opened the jar or anything yet, but the cashier said it was really good, so we'll see.

I asked about this today and was told that it is not discontinued. There was an issue with the supplier, but it is supposed to be back "in the foreseeable future."

There's a new (to me, at least) harvest blend herbal tea - cinnamon, ginger, hibiscus and apple. It's good. I love their seasonal products. Before you know it, it will be time to hoard candy cane tea again!

These are so dangerous to have around. They're kind of unassuming and then, whoops, I just ate the whole tub after only 2 days!

Gluten-free JoeJoes: does anyone know if they're vegan? Bf accidentally bought those instead of the regs for a cookie crust we're making and if they're not vegan I need to go replace them today. In theory they should be vegan but I've seen so many gf baked goods that have egg in em.

Today's finds: pumpkin spice coffee, organic canned pumpkin ($1.99), and vacuum packed sundried tomatoes (3 oz., $1.99). No Tofutti, but they did have the TJs brand vegan cream cheese, which is new to me. I haven't tried it yet, but the ingredient list is very different from Tofutti.
