Trader Joe's Syndrome

Sheryl | Jan 23, 200207:13 PM

I love this place so much. But something comes over me whenever I enter. Probably because the prices are so good, I am unable to resist temptation. I buy anything that looks remotely interesting, and always end up leaving with bags and bags of stuff I don't need. I've found some very good things, and some items I never wish to taste again. But once in a while, I come across a real discovery. For example, about a year ago, I noticed a new kind of tea I hadn't heard of before... Rooibos. Bought it, and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, TJ's stopped carrying it, so now I buy it elsewhere, but if it wasn't for TJ's I never would have tried it in the first place. My latest find (I'll tell you guys but promise not to buy all of it) is a brand of Belgian chocolate called Swartenbroeckx. Very Noir - 77% cacao. I'm such a dark chocolate fanatic, I like it plain, a little square at a time. It's barely sweet at all.
My question for all of you is: What's the most surprising and delicious thing you ever found at Trader Joe's?
