Necessarily brief, as I am typing this on the bus with one thumb while my other hand holds onto my groceries:

As I attained my bus stop for my return voyage and turned to search for my bus, what should I see but a great big Trader Joe’s logo, no more than fifty feet away.

I know TJ’s is kind of a big deal to a lot of people, so can anyone give me some recommendations of what I should check ouy in order to get the full, glorious effect?

Much obliged in advanceowmythumb.

    cDo you like nuts and dried fruits? They’ve got that. They’ve got excellent frozen stuff, if you like that (my friend loves the egg rolls, I’m partial to the burritos). They’ve got lots of chocolate, if you like that.

    They’ve got excellent basics.

    Experiment, it’s fun!

    They have a lot of good ethnic foods, if you are in to that sort of thing.

    Do they have vegetarian fish? I used to get some made by Momo’s Veggie Kitchen, but the supermarket stopped carrying it. I freakin’ loved that stuff.

    Best european candy bars ever. They also gave me a free item during the holidays but I think that was a seasonal thing…

    Doesn’t everyone love European candy bars?

    I like the big bags of frozen shrimp at TJ’s – very inexpensive.

    I just polished my nails and can’t believe I haven’t messed them up on the keyboard yet. Oh, and they have some good cheeses.

    Thanks, spocko!

    Alas, a bunch of those sound like they might require, like, some sort of preparation…
