Who doesn’t love Trader Joe’s?! After a terrible shopping experience at my local Albertsons, I vow to stay away from that place.
Why was it so terrible, you ask? It’s almost too traumatic of an experience to tell you! Let’s just say I needed a bottle of grape seed oil and sherry vinegar to make ginger scallion noodles and made the mistake of going into Albertsons. Albertsons lacks variety! There was only one brand of grape seed oil and one brand of sherry vinegar that was available. And then there was the cashier that was helping us…. I won’t say exactly what happened and I don’t want to be openly rude, but let’s just it was one of those terrible shopping experiences that just lingered. I wanted to leave everything, tell her “forget it”, not pay, walk out, and drive to Trader Joe’s. It was that annoying…
Trader Joe’s is amazing! I love that place! My TJ has always been wonderful to me. They help bring my groceries to my car even if it’s only a bag or two. They are so peppy, extremely helpful, food is fresh, and have a variety of products. Sure, it may be a tad pricey, but it’s well worth it for the quality of products you are paying for.
I went there a few weeks ago to get a bottle of oregano and came out with more stuff than I needed! No regrets though, not one whatsoever!
Check out what I got…
Any TJ addicts out there? And have you ever felt compelled to walk out of a bad grocery shopping experience?
