This is the time of year when it pays to scan the shelves carefully at TJ's as they're bringing in their seasonal items for the holidays (some are specifically seasonal, some are just increased selection of things people serve when entertaining). Two specifically seasonal items I saw this week were Double Rainbow Perfectly Pumpkin ice cream (a little too sweet for my taste), and Candy Cane Jo-Jos (TJ's house brand Oreos with no transfats). The Candy Cane Jo-Jo's were a winner (if you like that kind of cookie). The filling was lightly speckled with pink and had a strong peppermint candy cane flavor. Being seasonal items they were ultra fresh.
Anyone else spotted new seasonal offerings?
BTW, I went to buy the tetrapak beef broth and it was gone. Apparently they're looking for a new supplier, but until they find one, they won't be carrying it. I did see a low-sodium version of the organic free range chicken broth (how PC is that?) that I didn't remember them having before.
