there their theyre: Contrabulous Flabtraption: Thought that was going to be really interesting. It was not.Did by a giant jug o' Kirkland brand vodak at Costco for $13 tho.Isn't CostCo vodka Grey Goose, I've always heard it was.
Kristoph57: I got to see what amounts to a half afternoon worth of research on the taste of snacks..I'd go to a TJ's takeout place, I hear their prepped hot foods are pretty good.
imashark: Excuse me for not wanting to buy defective ('undercooked' as an example) product from name brands because 'its cheap'. My tastebuds would revolt.
slykens1: Maybe I didn't spend enough time at Trader Joe's or looked at the wrong products. I didn't think anything there was cheap.I thought they were wildly overpriced for the same thing I can get out of Wegman's Organic section - which is larger anyway - and haven't been back.
InmanRoshi: Holy Fark, Huffington Post is awful.
kidgenius: Not sure if HuffPo is trying to crack a joke, or they don't understand that the term "blind" in a test such as this has nothing to do with the participants visual cortexes.
Justin Bieber's Acne Medication: Had a terrible experience with Trader Joe's charcoal - it turned to dust and clogged up my Egg.Food is good though, especially the Fruity O's.
UseUrHeadFred: Gordon Biersch and Unibroue do the important ones.
TheShavingofOccam123: Huntsman. Cheese.It's like a cake made of cheese. Delicious Stilton for the cake and Double Gloucester for the frosting.Damn you Trader Joes. Damn you.[images3.wikia.nocookie.net image 374x372]
wildcardjack: I stopped in at Trader Joe's to see what it's all about. Since I live low carb and wasn't headed home anytime soon I didn't see much of interest, since packaged foods tend to be creative ways to turn $1 pound grains and starches into $5 a pound crap. Maybe some of the meat selections would have interested me but I did hit the cheese case.I'm pretty sure good cheddar shouldn't crumble.I know gouda shouldn't.
ha-ha-guy: TJ's is worth it if they're on your regular route home from work or the like. Even then you need to learn what is good and what is crap. At least they have no hassle returns./sometimes their produce section can be a total disaster area as well
gingerjet: You dropped 800 bucks on an Egg and used Trader Joe's charcoal? Heathen
Rapmaster2000: Way to blow the lid off the private label industry, Huffpo.
ladyfortuna: Aldis though... ugh. There's a reason I don't shop there, and it's 'LOW QUALITY' for most packaged food.
Fubini: I'm guessing that Huffpo would explode if you told them that the same people who run Trader Joe's also run Aldi's. We get a number of things that have identical (or nearly identical) alternatives at Trader Joes, but Aldi's is usually cheaper.ladyfortuna: Aldis though... ugh. There's a reason I don't shop there, and it's 'LOW QUALITY' for most packaged food.The packaged dry foods, canned fruits and vegetables, dairy and produce we've never had a problem with. They tend to have less variety than Trader Joes for sure, however, but when they do have stuff in season it's fantastic. Nothing beats pineapples or a 1lb box of berries for less than a dollar.
