I tried the vanilla almond milk, and found it too salty to drink on cereal, but perfection in coffee.

Does anyone else feel like its oversalted or did I get a bad batch perhaps? It has sea salt as an ingredient, and I don't eat a lot of salt, so maybe I am extra sensitive, but I've never tasted any other "mylk" that was this salty.

It really did make the flavor of my coffee pop though.

Also, their sunflower seed milk is amazing in coffee. OMG.

Yeah, the vanilla almond milk is a touch salty. I kind of like it, though.

Has anyone had the spicy spinach pizza things from the refrigerated section? They're like little flatbreads topped with spinach and onions and herbs? I never noticed them before but picked some up yesterday and they're pretty tasty. Easy to doctor up, too.

I'm pretty excited about two new products:
The Whole Wheat Lavash Chips are great. They have a delicate thin crispy texture and just the right amount of salt.
And TJs now carries smoked almonds! Since my old source for smoked almonds went out of business, I haven't had any in a while.

Tried the cinnamon rolls - better than I expected! Which, I guess, wasn't much, but still! They were so damn quick, reminded me of 'that one xmas morning....' and dipped well in coffee. Proof: http://distilleryimage0.s3.amazonaws.co ... 8ac3_7.jpg

Saw the chocolate and smoked almonds. Why didn't I put them in my cart?
And agreed, I really love those little spinach pizzas.

I saw the red lentils and told myself they were cheaper in the bulk aisle at my grocery stores, and dude, they're not! So, noted. I have also almost grabbed the s&p chocolate round twice now. Must do tomorrow on my toilet paper-buying trip!

Yeah, those little spinach pizzas...I used to eat them a lot when i was vegetarian, I didn't realize they were vegan!

Thats a good think to pick up and have on hand as appetizers when people come over. I remember I used to freeze them and they were fine re-heated from frozen.

Red lentils are great! I think they are cheaper in bulk where I shop, but that is great news for everyone else!

Oooooh spinach pizzas, I'm so intrigued!

I find that now that TJs Carries organic kale, they are really becoming my almost-1 stop shop and I'm loving it! Totally eliminated the need to go to whole foods, although I will stop there for vegan cheese and sour cream and coconut creamer when needed.

Is the kale bagged? I know mine carries a bag of shredded greens, but not just Kale. Is it in the bagged lettuce/produce section?

Got my boy stopping at TJ's tonight, want to tell him what to look for please!

At my TJs it was at the checkout next to the chocolate bars.

I bought the dang peanut butter filled pretzels yesterday, figuring if I knew what I was getting into and worked hard I could control myself with them this time. Guess what? No.

At the TJs I go to, it is in the produce section, but at the far end of the section. Mine has mixed southern greens, organic and nonorganic kale and a power greens mix that is baby kales, spinach ect. They also just started carrying frozen kale.

A few weeks ago they had these new cinnamon apple snack sticks. They were like the "skinny fries" but are multigrain apple cinnamony delicious. I bought two bags and scarfed them down, and haven't seen them since! Did anyone else try these?

We tried the cinnamon sticks. They were tasty! Apple-cinnamon stuff is not usually my thing, but my husband loves it and wanted to pour them in a bowl with almond milk and eat them like cereal. I'll have to look next time I go and see if they still have them.

At our store the salt & pepper chocolate is by the registers. I didn't really like it, just because it seemed a little gritty. But the flavor was nice!

Yes, I have often gotten that mix, but they have just kale now too! $1.99 for a big-ass bag. Kale at my local grocery store or heath food market place is at least $1.99 for a bunch. This is WAY bigger, pre-washed AND organic.

Now to figure out what to do with it. My parner hates kale. I might make a massaged/raw salad and bring it for lunch.

ps...that other mixed greens bag is really really good. I like it as a side dish for any kind of southern/creole dish that I make. But happy I can get just kale for salads and raw stuff.

I have been hitting the White Bean Hummus hard. Soo good. I use it as mayo on veggie sandwiches. Also delish is the Black Bean and Red Quinoa infused corn chips. They have ran out a few times so I am kind of worried they might be a summer only item.

We have a family dinner every Sunday and my mom brought me the Mandarin Chickenless dinner. It was pretty good. I just dipped them in the sauce though. Even on rice there would have been way to much sauce and it was really sweet.

Oh, and the Cookie Butter. So good. So wrong. I eat it off a spoon.

I generally add a half a bag of broc to the Mandarin Nuggets to help deal with the sauce and it works really well.

Great idea using the white bean hummus as mayo. I think I'm going to do that for today's lunch.
