I love shopping at Trader Joe's. Grocery shopping is never more exciting. Its a store I have grown to love over teh last few years. Why trader Joe's?

  • They have the loveliest fresh flowers for less.
There is something about having fresh flowers in your house. i have always disliked fake plants and vases with fake leaves and flowers. The colour and the cheer that a flower brings to a room is unmatched. It makes me happy to even look at them and think " how pretty".

  • They have a great selection of well priced wines.
I dont know which one I am going to like by reading off the bottle cover. But I do have intuition. :) One of my favourite wine is the $4.99 Rosso Shiraz from Trader Joes.

  • They have great hors d'oeuvres.
Samosas that can be baked. Thai stix in coconut curry sauce. Mushroom turnovers. Mini Quiches. The crunchiest chips. Yummmy. Perfect for hosting friends.

  • They have great desserts.
The chocolate ganache is to die for. Also their mochis. And their tiramisu cake is worth a dekko.

  • They have a global food market feel.
They have chinese, thai, indian, italian ( great pesto sauce ), bread and cheese ( yes thst is a cuisine in itself) etc etc .. ingredients for all sorts of things. I have rarely been disppointed.

  • The staff is so fun and friendly.
There is somethign very homely about that. Its warm and welcoming.

So if you havent been there yet, I would say "About time you did. It will enhance your grocery shopping experience" :)

P.S: I did not get paid to write this up.
