But now you can buy it not at trader joes.

Pitted Amarena cherries. $5 instead of $20 at the liquor store, and dare I say, maybe even a little better tasting.

I've had the cookie butter, it was meh.  Idk if it was maybe a protein powder or ice cream or.....?!

If I got excited about it, it was probably kid friendly, lol.

So keep coming up with suggestions, people!

Probably not a protein powder. They have mini ice cream cones that are delish and also bake at home French pastries that are really excellent. Maybe that was it?

Bake at home french pastries do sound excellent.  MG, do you have access to an oven?

The bake at home pastries are delish.  Our faves are the Kouign Amman when they have them.  Their puff pastry dough is also superior to most other brands because it's made with all butter (unlike Pillsbury, etc) and less expensive than Dufour. 

Their Dipper cookies are also a kid's delight.  DD and DH like the chocolate chip ones.  And one of the most popular desserts there is the Kringle.

Do they still sell the chocolate meringue cookies? I haven't seen them in awhile at my local store, but I really like those.

Oh! This cheese. I'd be very sad if TJs stopped selling this cheese:

I find their bagged salad greens last longer than ones from the regular market.
The 3 pack of chocolate bars, the 72% dark. It comes in a pound plus bar but it's too hard to break up and eat a normal portion.  :eyeroll:
I love the Argentinian Red Shrimp, always have that on hand and the Melodious Melange, Stir Fry Riced Cauliflower (either of those are good with the aforementioned shrimp)
I always have the goat cheese crumbles around, I love that with asparagus, mushrooms and shallots sauteed and in an omelet.
Most of their frozen stuff is good but too much salt for me so I stay away from it, also it says 4 servings and I could typically eat it all! The smoke salmon varieties are good.
I love their lower salt broths, the vegetable broth is a great starter for soup. If you like ginger snaps theirs are amazing.
In the winter I typically buy the frozen blueberries, cherries, raspberries but it's summer and I'd rather get fresh now.
Their Greek yogurt is decent, if I am stuck I will buy it but I do prefer Fage.
I like their veggie italian sausage too.
And all the nuts and dried fruits are great and way lower priced then say Whole Foods.

Their veggie italian sausage is delicious!

This week I found a bag of kale that had been de-stemmed and thinly chopped.  One of the famous local restauranteurs shared his recipe for the most fantastic kale salad so I appreciated not having to do the little bit of extra work:

I get their dried ginger candy. DH loves their truffle oil potato chips.
