Did you know ……
“All of the foods in the Trader Joe’s name are made without artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. They have no MSG, no added trans fats, no genetically modified ingredients and no high fructose corn syrup. We buy directly from the manufacturer whenever possible, and we cut out all the added costs that tend to drive up the price of supermarket foods – things like bid ad budgets, coupons and slotting fees. We keep it simple. Good food, great prices. Every day.
In addition to sourcing all of its store brand products from Non-GMO ingredients, which it began in 2001, TJ’s began to source in 2005 all of its store brand eggs from cage-free hens. In 2010, the retailer announced that it had committed to sourcing all of its seafood purchases to sustainable sources by December 31, 2012. This applies to all formats of seafood that it offers: frozen, fresh, and canned.”

I love knowing that when it says Trader Joe’s (or Trader Giotto’s, or Trader Jose’s) I’m buying something with no GMOs, no high fructose corn syrup and no MSG (among other nasty things) AND I’m not spending an arm and a leg.
OK – onto the list. 🙂
I seriouslyADORE all the hummus there. I’m always disappointed when I run out and have to buy hummus at Kroger. The cilantro one is my favorite and I usually buy I usually buy two of them and throw one in the freezer. Yes, it’s that good. I’ve also been loving the 3 layered one lately….but it’s all gone…..so there’s no picture. 🙂
Again, I usually buy a few so I can keep one or two in the freezer. I use them for everything…pizza, breadsticks, calzones, stromboli, and most recently pull apart pizza bread.
These are so crispy and flakey and unique. You gotta try them.
Phosphate and Formaldehyde free and smells like lavender.
It’s natural and fluoride free.
The kids like it, since it’s not minty (spicy). I’ve bought the mint flavor before but for some reason it’s really hard to squeeze out. I like this one better.
