Recent Trader Joe’s finds…
- Trader Ming’s Soyaki sauce. I used this on a stir-fry last week. It was tasty and lacked that extreme saltiness that I dislike in soy sauce. No artificial preservatives, HFCS, etc. In the aisle with the spaghetti sauces and tapenades.
- Unsweetened baking chocolate. This was a little hard to find at first, because it doesn’t live with its baking friends, the flour and the chocolate chips. It’s over the frozen fruit, near the massive candy bars. And it’s NINETY NINE CENTS per 8 oz. package. That’s a great deal!
- White whole wheat flour. Where have you been all my life?! It’s the same nutritionally as regular (red) whole wheat flour, but made from a softer kind of wheat, so it rises a bit more eagerly and acts more like all-purpose flour.
- I almost forgot! My new favorite coffee is TJ’s Organic Fair Trade Breakfast Blend. YUM. SO good…one of those cases (I’m finding more and more frequently!) where organic really tastes SO MUCH BETTER. Apparently everyone on this side of Charlotte likes it too, though, because it’s frequently cleaned out when I’m there.
