My Trader Joe’s Run Recap

Last night I finally made my way across the border to Trader Joe’s. Normally I try to get down to Bellingham, WA once a month. Sadly my last TJ’s run was a couple months ago.

Sad because it’s less than a hour’s drive one-way. OK, that’s a bit of a ways away round trip, but totally worth it for cheap delicious gluten-free goodness and cheese.

Here are a few of the goodies I picked-up, including a couple new TJ products:

Cocoa Almond Spread

New TJ product! I bought 2 jars. I mean, how can you really go wrong with chocolate nut spreads?!

21 Seasoning Salute

I’ve seen this product throughout the blogging world. Go figure I buy it, yet have no idea what to use it for. Help!

Eggnog Almonds

New TJ product. These are yummy. I can’t get enough of eggnog right now! Starbuck’s (light) eggnog lattes, Booster Juice eggnog smoothies, and now these. 

Any bets on when I will eggnog myself out?!

Vanilla and Cinnamon Black Tea

Haven’t seen or tried this before. Might be a new TJ product?!

Dark Chocolate Roasted Pistachio Toffee

I tried a bite of this, and found it to be super sweet. I’m not really a fan of sweet, so I will probably pass this on to someone who likes toffee. 🙂

I also picked-up some pantry essentials, like a variety of canned beans (i.e. Garbanzo, black beans), gluten-free brown rice pastas, polenta, and Peanut Butter Panda Puffs cereal. And cheese, of course!

I think my roommates are a bit overwhelmed with the amount of food I added to their pantry, but a gluten-free girl has to stock-up when she gets the chance! Or I may need to add some shelves…

Question:
Do you like to keep a fully stocked pantry? Or do you prefer to keep just the bare minimum?

  1. Oooh, all of your new goodies look really good! It sucks you have to drive so far, though. I have a TJ’s and Whole Foods pretty close to me, and I’ve gotten spoiled. Are you close to Seattle? My boyfriend lives up there, and I feel like Bellingham is around there, but I’m not completely sure 🙂

    As for my pantry, I definitely like to keep it stocked! There’s nothing worse than coming home from work with nothing to eat.

  2. When I go to Trader Joe’s I go crazy. I load up on everything because I know I won’t get down there again for awhile.

    The 21 Seasoning Salute goes on EVERYTHING. Seriously, I put it on eggs, veggies, salad, salad dressing, baked potatoes. I dont think you can go wrong with that stuff.
