A few weeks back my sister and I were discussing Trader Joes and how much people seem to love it . There are not many around here but we both work close to one. It is always packed. Day,night, weekends, whenever!
So one day last week I had some time to kill between and work and an appointment so I decided to take a ride over. As soon as I pulled into the parking spot I wanted to turn around. I don’t eat healthy enough to be here! I don’t eat organic! After calming myself down, I headed in. I was immediately greeted by a nice man with a name tag. Oh great, he’s probably looking at me like, why are YOU here? But of course he wasn’t. I was just another customer. I started looking around and quickly realized that I had been stereotyping the Trader Joe’s shoppers. Sure there were very fit people but there were also all different kinds of people. Regular families shopping for the week.
As I made my way through the aisles I felt a little lost. I didn’t recognize any of the “brands”. Have you seen that cheese section?! I haven’t even heard of half of them. I walked around a bit more and settled on a some sanwhich thins, reduced guilt Guac, hard boiled eggs and of course the Cookie Butter I had heard so much about. Despite the store being packed, a check out line was available right away and I was quickly out of there.
Even though I didn’t buy much, I have really enjoyed the products I did buy. I’ll definitely be back in the future. It feels good to go out of your comfort zone and try new things. Besides I’m pretty sure I’ll go through withdrawal if I run out of Cookie butter!
So, what items do I HAVE to try??
Anything I should avoid??
Is anyone else as obsessed with Cookie Butter as me?
