Well I'm sure Costco goers also are Joe goers, not all Joe goers are Costco goers and vice versa. Therefore why can't we have a trader Joe's mega thread in the same forum that we have a Costco threat. Without offending the 'Sco goers in the Joe thread let's talk about how great Joe's is.


I personally like to go to Joe's for my groceries and Costco for my business. Joe's is fairly good in terms of prices and things I want.

Joe's has been my grocery if choice post pandemic where I solely shopped at Whole Foods, but have since become a Joe Goer.

I'd love to hear your feedback on Joe.

That looks good, I liked their jarred hot and sweet jalapeños so this seems right up my alley.

I don't go to trader Joe's all the time so when I do it's kind of a treat. The cookie butter is a must have.

That poo poo is good. I also like the soup dumplings from TJs. Their Mediterranean hummus is also really good and I say this as an arab person who depends on the stuff.

For some reason their peanut butter is by far the best PB out there, not sure how it tastes so good when it's just peanuts and salt

The corn ribs are tasty but I was surprised how much cob they leave on. I had corn ribs at a restaurant once and IIRC you could eat the whole thing but I can see how that would be difficult to store and ship without breaking.

Yeah there was no way Iíd have eaten the cob remnants on these ones. Too big. But flavors and seasonings were on point!

"You'll never know if you can fly unless you take the risk of falling."
Every time I go in there, I get overwhelmed. Not by it's amazing products with low prices, but just the people inside it.

It's that claustrophobia with people that I sometimes have, but all I want is some of their lemonade, some quesadillas and those joe-oreos because for some reason it tastes more "chocolatey".

Surprised by the lack of "two buck chuck" praise so far.
