What's new or standard good deals at Trader's?

I'm obsessed with Baker Josef's peanut flour at the moment. High protein, easy pb flavor without the sticky issue, and I've been adding it to everything. I'm planning a pb bake-fest soon. Stuff isn't cheap though.

What else is good?

my favorite thing in the world at trader joe's are the rocky road squares. i haven't seen them in awhile, but i'm hoping they'll resurface. dark chocolate, peanuts, krispies, vegan marshmallows. YUM.

They told me they would be getting the seaweed rice balls back. I haven't seen them yet and that makes me verrrry upset. They are such a nice crunchy snack. And they were cheap!

What I have recently discovered that I really love are the lime fruit floes.

The maple leaf cookies ARE like crack! Those and the dark chocolate sea salt almonds. I can't have them around or I will eat them all in one sitting.

Goddess dressing! So much cheaper than other kinds and totally addictive.

YES! I can't believe I forgot about that one. I spotted it last time I went in and proceeded to pour it over everything.

This is probably the most used condiment in our home.

My mom, who lives in Florida where, sadly, there are no TJ's, seriously stocks up on Goddess Dressing each time she visits. I'm talking over a dozen bottles. And she runs out fast.

I like it in banana smoothies. Sometimes I add cocoa powder, and it's amazing.

I want to know more about those rocky road squares. I've never seen or heard of them.

The Thai Tom Yum soup with dumplings! It's not cheap, so I only ever buy one on the infrequent trips I make to TJ's, but it's so nice when you're tired/freezing/lazy and need dinner quick.

The strudel is in the frozen section. It is sooo good. If you buy it once you may not be able to stop. You've been warned!

The dark chocolate sea salt almonds are the reason I don't shop at Trader Joe's more often. I have willpower when it comes to a lot of things, but I can't even stop myself from putting them in my shopping basket.

every time i go in now i am looking for candy cane jo jo's. not here as of monday...

i love their soy milk more than any other kind. i bought the apple strudel once, it is yummy, but i made the mistake of looking at the calories and i haven't been able to bring myself to purchase it again. although i would definitely buy it for guests.

now i want to try the goddess dressing, i cannot believe i haven't!

also, i can see trader joe's from my bedroom

I'll second (third?) the maple leaf cookies.

two maple leaf cookies + a cup of coffee = the best morning ever.

I hardly ever go to TJ's, since the closest one is about an hour from where I live, but this thread makes me really want to go and buy goddess dressing and rocky road squares!

I really like their pre-made Indian-style eggplant. It might just be repackaged Tasty Bite "Punjabi Eggplant," but I think the TJ's kind is better. Oh, and their plantain chips are delicious! My parents really love the dark chocolate/raspberry candies, which I'm pretty sure are vegan, but I can't stand chocolate/raspberry together, so I can't comment on those.

Denali reminded me, the applesauce and carrot/applesauce in packets. Perfect for little guys who are determined to be independent & eat food themselves. The top is like a hard plastic 'straw', so they squeeze and suck it up. No mess.
