Trader joes?

I will be running errands near a trader joes on Thursday. It is almost 2 hrs away. I want to stock up on some things. This is what I was thinking

Peanut butter (4+)
Almond butter
Olive oil
Coconut oil
Nuts
Chic chips

What else is a must to stock up on that the prices can't be beat

Sorry, it's just I only buy it at Trader Joe's because it's so cheap there.

Their sweet treats are amazing! My kids love the yogurt covered stars, DH loves the chocolate covered orange sticks and I love the chocolate covered butterscotch sea salt caramels

Re: Trader joes?

We buy a bunch of stuff at Trader Joe's.

nitrate free turkey bacon
Nitrate-free sandwich meats
vanana yogurt (banana and vanilla mixed together; my kids love it)

Chocolate chips
Maple Syrup
Organic grape jelly
Triple Berry-O's
Chia Seeds
Organic raisins
Banana chips
Dried mangos

and we buy some "junk food/snack food" there - still not "good for you," but no artificial additives etc.:
Joe Joe's (like Oreos)
Cereal bars (they say "this strawberry/blueberry/apple/etc walks into a bar"; they are like Nutrigrain bars and are really good)
Organic white tortilla chips
White cheddar puffs (like pirate booty)
caramel corn
nacho cheese chips (like Doritos, without the bad stuff)
crunchy cheese curls
cheddar popcorn

Yep, like other PPs they're my go-to for snack and "junk" food, as there are no scary ingredients. Chocolate syrup, Siracha sauce, soy sauce, canned chili, frozen meals, curry sauce for a quick meal starter. Their cartons of coconut milk are one of the only carageenan-free, so that's also agood bet. They also have vacuum sealed grass fed ground beef.
Organic produce and basic grains can be found anywhere, so it's the "convenience" foods that TJs excels at.
All of their store brand items are non-GMO and MSG-free. :-D

Cha. Sometimes they carry boxed wine that is good for a month after you open it! Even if you only cook with wine it is a total steal. I also get almond milk, bagels and frozen meals here. Oh and hand soap because I love how it smells. I also really like their face wash, but not the one with leaves on the bttle, the other one.
