Happy Chocolate Cupcake Day!

18 Oct

Celebrating chocolate cupcakes around the world

Caramel + apples: Clever pair

19 Apr

I brake for Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce. Which I did at Trader Joe’s recently. And when the stars in my eyes cleared, I looked down and found that I’d drooled (just a little) on the Pink Ladies below. And I had to laugh (just a little).

Clever pairing, Trader Joe’s. Clever pairing.

Halloween at Trader Joe’s: Treat or treat

29 Oct

Of course – of course! – Trader Joe’s is a great place to stock up for a Halloween party! Even without Halloween-themed items, it’s a no brainer, even for a zombie.

But, Trader Joe’s being Trader Joe’s, there are many Halloweenish goodies for your partying pleasure. Cases in point:

Halloween cookies from Trader Joe's

(The picture on the cookies box reminds me of the squirrel that got his head stuck in a Halloween decoration.)

Ghoulie Gummy candy from Trader Joe's

And for the thirsty adult…

Dearly beloved red wine

I hope that these give you a start in preparing for your Halloween celebration. If you’re on the East Coast, please stay safe this week through Hurricane Sandy. I hope the wind and water subside before Wednesday.

Take good care.

Thank you, Trader Joe’s.

Summer: Savor the flavor. Caribbean Fruit Floes

31 Aug

I first tried and loved Trader Joe’s Coconut Fruit Floes, giving them a “4-wow” rating. But there are several members of the Fruit Floe family. Judging by the way Caribbean sang for me, it’s a clan with a lot of talent.

Caribbean Fruit Floes

As those of you in the U.S. begin your Labor Day weekend, and for anyone in a country sinking into autumn soon, I would highly encourage you to check out these yummy Popsicles. Although the presence of several tropical fruits are identifiable, strawberry takes center stage.

Have a safe and delicious weekend!
Thanks, TJ’s
