I enjoyed scrolling through this list :

' next year , after a few Vacc's '

 

Thanks.  I learned from that (and verified elsewhere) that the Italian Nocellara olives that TJ's been selling are the same olive variety sold as Castelvetranos

My consistent TJ's stalwarts are not on that list.  Green chile cheese frozen tamales, jarred salsa verde, 4% small curd cottage cheese, TJ rebranded Unibroue corked beers, Boatswain Dbl IPA 6 pack, TJ's Pound Plus chocolate bars.  These items haven't disappeared at TJ's for decades, which says something.

I've been drinking this 2019 Ténèbres from TJ's for little while.  It's a French GSM but instead of being from the Rhône valley, this one is from farther south in the Languedoc.  Only $5.99.  Very drinkable and worth a try if you like Rhône varietals.  They had cases of it on an end cap for a while but it's now moved to a spot on the shelves with the other French reds.

I should pick up a few more bottles. 

 

Something I will not be picking up again is the TJ's frozen pie crust.  I'd sworn these off before but in the interest of limiting shopping trips, I picked up a package of them the other day.

Still as broken as my previous experiences.

I let this one thaw 24 hrs in the fridge and 1 hr at room temp.  Frozen pie crust is supposed to be a time saver, not a craft project!

Too bad as it's a tender, buttery crust with a reasonable list of ingredients.  I'll go back to the doughboy 🙃

I have sworn off their frozen pie crust, too. I bought it a second time because it had been so long since I bought it that I'd forgotten. I won't forget again. What a mess. I hope that wine is in our store here!

"Everyone's Excited About This New Trader Joe's Snack on Shelves"

Quote

Trader Joe's Salted Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets have already won the top spot in the awards for the beloved grocery chain's best snack  year-after-year, but now, the salted and salt-free nuggets have some competition thanks to a brand-new flavor that was just released: Almond Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets!

The bolding of typeface is from the article. 

 

If anyone tries them, please report back.

I had that exact same thing happen to me.  I've never had it happen with the refrigerated Pillsbury one, so I'm sticking with those or with frozen ones.  I just wish that they made the frozen ones the same size as a standard pie pan, so I could successfully pretend I'd made the crust.  🙃

 

Bought these for the first time this weekend:

They are delicious.  Dehydrated, but still soft and moist.  And a nice, citrus punch.

They're one of my favorite TJ's product. A lot of dried fruits are just too sweet for me but these have a little tartness to them. A nice contrast...

TJ's is offering one of my favorite cheeses, Mobay, in 7 oz wedges for $6.99. The name is a play on the French Morbier although this stuff has separate layers of semi-soft sheep and goat cheeses separated by a layer of ash while Morbier is generally from one type of milk, most often cow.

The TJ's label doesn't name the maker.  I have only had the stuff made by Carr Valley Cheese in Wisconsin and they have a trademark on the name Mobay so I'd guess it's theirs unless they are leasing out the name to other makers.
