    At TJ's try their imported Organic Pasta for some reason this formula has a
    wonderful taste and more important texture.

    I can't remember the last time I was in a TJs, but it's been at least 3
    years. Now I gotta make a run just to check out that store-brand uber
    dooper flour someone mentioned. Sheesh, I'm practically baking in my
    sleep these days!!

    How lucky you are. My closest Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are over
    2 hours away in Atlanta.

    Mine is now three hours away. Or rather, we are. We used to live
    seven minutes from one, now we live three hours away. I hold out no
    hope that we'll get one either. We might get a Fred Meyer (I'm hoping
    we do), we might get a Cash and Carry, though that is less likely, but I
    see no chance of our getting a TJs out here.

    In my experience their prices for eggs, milk, sour cream, cottage cheese etc
    are usually 15 top 25% lower than the big box stores. Check it out if you
    use a lot of dairy.

    I can imagine you are. I have never been to Trader Joe's either. LOL
    When we made the trip down there, it was to go to Whole Foods, and
    Trader Joe's wasn't open yet. And we have only been to Whole Foods
    twice. It's just too far to go. So, I have to be content for now to go
    to Ingles. (3 of them within 7 miles.)

    We are int eh Denver area. Our closest TJ is in Santa Fe, New
    Mexico. I believe that's 8-10 hours away.

    Sigh. We are supposedly getting an IKEA, but TJ is only a dream.

    You'll like it. Not a big store, not everything you ever need, but some
    items you just won't find at the other stores and the prices are reasonable.

    Hmm..when I drove to Denver from ABQ last year, it only took me 6
    hours. So Denver to Santa Fe might only be 5 hours, depending on how
    fast you drive.

    I'm thinking Albuquerque is right on I-25, whereas Santa Fe is
    more on a side road... I think a person from Denver making a
    TJ's run would pick Albuquerque.

    There are plenty of reasons to visit Santa Fe which have nothing to do
    with Trader Joe's. If I lived in the Denver area I wouldn't make a run
    either to Albuquerque or Santa Fe *just* for Trader Joe's. I'd wait until I
    had some other reason to go to either place and then incorporate a visit to
    Trader Joe's into the rest of the trip.

    You're right. Cool. Scratch the above. ;-)

    The main negative thing, IMO, is that they hook you on something,
    and then it may very well disappear!

    'Zactly. Santa Fe is a terrific town for art galleries, food,
    and relaxation. I would never drive more than an hour away
    for olive oil and some of TJs fun foods but there's so much more
    to see sand do there.

    One thing no one has mentioned is that TJ often has people
    offering generous samples of new products (coffee, crackers and
    cheese, soup, dried fruit, candy etc.) and I never ran into one
    I didn't like!

    Buggs always mentions a carrot festival in some valley when he should a turned left at ABQ .
    Possibly San Funacello valley carrot festival or some such name.
