"Trader Joe's Rolled Back The Price Of Its 'Two Buck Chuck' Wine So It's Actually $2 Once Again"

Quote

The early 2000s brought this world a lot. Most notably, it began the era of $1.99 bottles of Trader Joe’s Charles Shaw wine that’s widely referred to as “Two Buck Chuck.” Since its debut, the budget-friendly wine saw an increase in price over the years–you know, inflation plus varying state distribution costs and taxes–but California maintained the two-buck price for over a decade before it, too, rose. Now, it’s finally back to the OG price, so it can once again live up to its nickname.

Note the price rollback is currently only happening in California.

CA is much more efficient on its added-on costs

 

here in MA , its at least $ 1 a bottle

 

for a handler that never handles the bottle.

 

but has outstanding connections to Our Fine State Legislators.

 

this is true.

I noticed big "Two Buck Chuck is Back" signs at my TJ's recently.  I don't buy it. I don't find it vile as others do, it's just uninteresting and I was thinking that it must have been out of stock.  Thanks for explaining that it's the "Two Buck" part that's back!

@rotuts, are you able to get spinach in bunches? It's a little more work than simply opening a bag and washing the contents, but I think there's a lot more flavor that way.

That is the way I prefer to buy spinach. It is a bit more work but it’s worth it Peariant the last few times I bought frozen spinach it tasted like fish!

R.I.P. Joe 

 

Quote

Joe Coulombe, who created Trader Joe’s with a vision that college-educated but poorly paid young people would flock to a store that stocked healthy foods at bargain prices, died late on Friday. He was 89.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Yes what a legacy.  The original was my local. Exposed us to so much different but affordable food. Where else could a poor student get Mumm's champagne affordably in the late 70's.

That's what I thought.  Still baby but better than just baby spinach.  Glad it worked out for you.

Trader Joe's is possibly coming to Ithaca, NY.

That would be good news for me, the potential location is just 30 miles away.

I try to find the good food in every situation!

Unsupervised, rebellious, radical agrarian experimenter, minimalist penny-pincher, self-reliant homesteader, and adventurous cook. Crotchety, cantankerous, terse, curmudgeon, non-conformist, and contrarian who questions everything!
