Trader Joe's warning - and request

frenetica | Nov 17, 2006 02:42 PM

I went to Trader Joe's for the first time two days ago, and it's a testament to my food dorkery that it was the highlight of my week... that place is a lot of fun and everything looks so great but you really have no way of knowing.

For example, I bought some frozen cioppino that sounded really great from reading the ingredients list (nothing artificial, all things I would put in my own seafood stew), but the fish pieces ended up being nasty fibrous cubes, and the huge mussels came with all of their massive beards intact.

So, I don't recommend the cioppino. But can Chowhounders tell me what IS safe to buy at TJ's?
