I would like to take this opportunity to give you reasons why Trader Joe’s is the answer to your shopping needs.

If you are looking for a store that provides not only great, courteous customer service but also a wealth of unique products, Trader Joe’s is an experience you will revisit time and time again.  There is never a time that I have shopped here that I haven’t marveled at the friendly, helpful service from the workers in this store.  You will always leave with a smile on your face.

Too often we are ready to offer our negative comments on things in our lives.  I personally feel that we should also be ready to testify to those experiences we have that make us glad for where we have been and how we have been treated.  My daughter and I encountered just such a time at Trader Joe’s on Highway 92 in Roswell, Georgia this past Wednesday.

There was an older couple who made the 100 mile trip from Blue Ridge.  To me that speaks volumes of the store. We are among many customers who look forward to our next shopping trip.

Thank you Luke for being an awesome cashier and making us feel special!

We live in Hickory Flat, Georgia, approximately ten miles away, and our only complaint with Trader Joe’s is that there is not a store closer to where we live!

Below are just a few of the items that are always on our grocery list:

  • The best tasting low fat Tuscano Marinara sauce sold under the name of Trader Giotto’s
  • Sweet Chili sauce (that tastes awesome on almost anything you are cooking)
  • Various spices including one called 21 Seasoning Salute
  • Quality olive oils and vinegars, including a popular balsamic vinegar
  • A wide assortment of rices, couscous, and quinoa
  • Great soaps and health items
  • Coffees and teas for any connoisseur
  • A very wide variety of cheeses from around the world
  • Cookies, Crackers and Candies

Trader Joe’s has a wine department that is not rivaled by any I have seen at prices that will thrill your wallet.  You can always find Trader Joes/Charles Shaw variety of wines that sell for $2.79 and recently we have purchased one of their “Hustle Buy” deals of Trebbiano Pino Grigio (white) and Sangiovese (red), both from Italy that are wonderful.  These sell for $2.49.  Of course, these would not be appropriate to give to children, but you must admit these prices are less than what you would pay for a bottle of juice (you can also find great juices here)!  You always hear it said you should cook with wine that you would want to drink … and now you can do it cheaper than what you pay for cooking wine at  your local grocery store.

As you can see from the list above, in addition to finding great frozen seafood, vegetables, eggplant Parmigiana, relishes, multi-grain pancake mix, and frozen desserts, these are all great reasons why Trader Joe’s is the answer to your shopping needs. I hope that this article will stir your curiosity to see if there is a store in your area.  I personally want to thank Trader Joe’s for being a ray of sunshine in my life and reminding me that great customer service still exists!

One of the most surprising benefits I’ve discovered for being engaged to a gal from the Middle East, other than the vast cultural exchange, is the cooking. Hanna enjoys it… and she brings a Middle Eastern flair to some really boring fitness/bodybuilding foods that I want to share with you today. Here’s just two quick tips from Hanna on making the ultimate in “boring” foods — egg whites and tuna — taste incredible.

Mickie assisted me in filling out all of the forms I would need for surgery and armed me with lots of informative brochures, prescriptions for eye drops that had to be used before and two weeks after surgery, and instructions for things I would need to know before the day of surgery.
