Have you ever stepped foot into a Trader Joe’s? I never thought a grocery store could be a fad until the day I found out about Trader Joe’s.
In my home state, we didn’t have Trader Joe’s – so it was a totally foreign concept to me. But, as soon as we moved to California, I couldn’t help but be curious as to why everyone swore my Trader Joe’s. I mean, people who would never be caught dead eating a frozen dinner still ate Trader Joe’s branded frozen dinners.
If someone brought something really delicious to a potluck, somehow it was always from Trader Joe’s.
If someone came in with a bag full of goodies for their desk, somehow the most interesting ones were always from Trader Joe’s.
It was like an epidemic…
So, we just had to check it out.
Well, come to find out, Trader Joe’s is just this small little grocery store. And, of course, a grocery store is a grocery store, but they cater to the more health conscious and organic-friendly crowd. They also have their own branded frozen dinners that are such a hit.
And, while I will admit that the store is a bit of a fad – I mean, you can’t even find simple shelved items there that you would get during almost any grocery shopping trip – they do have some great products, such as:
- Their frozen dinnersObviously, I have only mentioned it like three times already. But, seriously, they are the only people who can do frozen Chinese or frozen Indian food right. And, even true Indian people agree.
- Their pumpkin spice cream cheeseNeed I say more? Pumpkin spice and cream cheese is an ideal combination. And, they have it down.
- Their caramel ginger popcornIf you are looking for a tasty treat you can feel good about, this is it!
