I made pizza using the basil dough a few weeks ago and it was soooo good. I thought their dough was perfect and was so happy it didn't have honey in it like a lot of regular store brands do.

Does anyone know how much those kale chips are? I might have someone stop on the way home and buy them...but everywhere else they are stupid expensive. Like $8+ for a bag of kale chips. I can't bring myself to pay that. I am el cheapo.

Shelf stable kale chips!!! Vegan zesty nacho flavour. I am posting from my phone at TJs.


Just bought these today along with new rosemary crackers that are SO good. You can totally taste the rosemary and they are just salty enough. I ate the whole box within an hour :/ I haven't tried the kale chips yet.

Just wanted to give a shout out to the low-fat Sprouted Whole Wheat Fiber Bread, with wheatberries and dates. Best store-bought bread I've ever had.

that's my favorite bread, hands down. For a long time I didn't buy it because i thought it would be sweet, cause of the dates, but it's not at all. perfect for all kinds of sandwiches and toast.

ETA: hold on, this is the bread I mean:

I googled the one you mentioned but I haven't seen that one I don't think.

I just picked up the kale chips, will eat em for an afternoon snack.

Hmm I'm not sure what the difference is. The bread I bought has a red and white label and says low-fat. Maybe it's a regional thing. I also made the mistake of assuming it would be sweet due to the dates - not at all, as you said. The absolute best sandwich bread.

I always assumed that bread would be sweet too! I'll have to try it.

yeah they sound pretty similar, I bet it's a regional thing.

The kale chips are excellent. they taste just like a fancy brand I've bought at Whole Foods, but can't remember the name, but TJ's are almost half the price.

When I don't have time to bake my own, this is the one I usually buy. We also like the whole wheat low calorie bread, whole wheat pitta, and whole wheat mini bagels.

Holy cow, this pumpkin spice tea is good. Mmm, pumpkin spice lattes. Anybody know what it is a repackaging of? Or is it a TJ's original?

I wanted to but it said natural flavors and no V symbol. I am always weary of those things.

It's natural pumpkin flavor, not the questionable "natural flavors". And just fyi, none of their teas have the V symbol. I also have the chamomile and mint medley and neither of them have the V, but the ingredients are pretty straightforward.

I bought it last night, and after opening the can (it smells so good!) I had to force myself to make it. Those tea bags are so pretty! I went to buy the Soy Creamer. They were out of it for at least a week, so if you guys can't find any Soy Creamer at TJ's on 6th Ave. and 22nd. St. in NYC, it's because I bought it all.

I went to Trader Joes today and they were out of the pumpkin spice tea. I even called 3 other stores when I got home and they were all out.

I did find the coconut milk yogurt though.

Sigh, no kale chips, no coconut chips, no pumpkin spice tea. . . we never seem to get the new stuff, or at least not until way after others seem to. We only finally got the coconut yogurt.

The coconut chips are out of control, especially on top of the coconut milk ice cream. And I know they have been around forever but I am obsessed with the pre cooked lentils in the produce section, I have super long days now and they make it way easy to throw in a salad or add to a meal for extra punch. I have had my eye on the pumpkin tea and I am definitely going to get it next time I go to trader joes! I'm already awaiting the arrival of the candy cane tea!

Got the pumpkin spice tea and the kale chips yesterday...both are yum. Guess we'd better go get more tea before it sells out!

I'm lazy but Chicki mentioned in another thread that the enchilada sauce is vegan. Has anyone on the east coast looked at it recently? Last time I looked, it had chicken stock in it.

I saw it today (but didn't buy it) and it is vegan. It had the V on it, too.

Where are you in Oregon? If you're in Portland, 've seen all three of these at the Cesar Chavez TJ.

Does the pumpkin spice tea have black tea in it? Or is it more of an herbal tea?

Stash pumpkin spice was disappointing to me because it barely tasted like tea, even though it claimed to be black tea based.
