1. Almost ALL of their products kick ass!
I absolutely LOVE that store and I hope that soon they'll go completely nationwide. They still have a lot of metro areas with no stores but they're working on it.

7. not likely: TJ is owned by Aldi
A(actually two) German discounter chain, still a family enterprise.

9. Didn't know that, but...
I know that the the Aldi's around here pay well for a grocery store, and Trader Joe's pays its people VERY well.

Evidence that you actually can run a good company profitably without screwing your employees.

I'd like to see TJ in Germany though - it would only be fair, as you already have Aldi. :hi:

Edit: a good article about the Aldi Group:

2. are they new?
I ain't never heard of them.

Have you tried the chocolate raspberries? They're pretty new and DAMN! I almost ate the whole canister of them as I waited in the checkout aisle.

5. They have a new vegetarian ratatouille provencale
that goes wonderfully over mashed potatoes. Other than a little cheese sprinkled on the top it's an almost completely vegan dish.

6. thanks for the TJ tips
Saw the bananas the other day; almos tried them. Now I will.

They have a frozen pistachio dessert with a chocolate topping. Yum, that was a hit around here.
