The Fearless Flyer: Info that’s delicious and easy to digest

22 Oct

I’m a devoted reader of Trader Joe’s Fearless Flyer, an episodic pleasure pamphlet of tasty treats, vintage graphics and witty writing. When it’s achingly punny, I love it even more.

Let the celebration begin

I see the Fearless Flyer as the Comedy Central of catalogs. The Daily Show puts a humorous spin on serious politics just like Trader Joe’s gives the descriptions of serious food products a literary joie de vivre. It’s a gastronomic comic book where the hero always wins, and the hero is you.

One example, the first paragraph in the description of Organic Brined Whole Chicken:

“In theory, roasting a whole chicken is a simple enough venture. You put the chicken in the oven, wait a while and you have a roasted chicken. Reality, though, is a bit more complex. You want flavor, You want moist, tender meat. And you want it to be easy. Trader Joes Organic Brined Whole Chicken gets you everything you want … in a chicken.”

It’s no wonder that each new edition of FF is a highly anticipated event, as exciting as a “free chocolate” promotion or the launch of a new Apple device.

Table of fearlessness

Thank you, Trader Joe’s. I can’t wait for the next mouth-watering edition!

S – Orange you glad I didn’t say “Banana?”

J – I’d rather that you would have said that you’re delivering some bananas from Trader Joe’s. They’re only 19 cents each. Such a deal!

S – Don’t blame me. You’re the one who expected fruit to have a last name.

Tj’s bananas, 19 cents each – No joke!

Thanks, TJ’s.
