I went a little crazy at Trader Joes today. The problem was that I went there hungry, so everything looked amazing and I HAD to have it all! My goal was to pick up some healthy treats for the 9 hour car ride to Ohio. I came home with snacks for a 2 week road trip.My plan is to use some snack size baggies and portion all of these delectable treats out. Some new products I picked up are:My mom would always buy these crumpets, so I cant wait to have them again, especially in the cinnamon flavor! and these are definitely not for the car ride, but for breakfast before the car ride or maybe a snack tonight. hmm.
Don't need to say much about these cashews - they just look gooooood.I guess I was in the mood for chile flavored stuff today. I tried a small bite of the chile spiced mango when I got home and my first reaction was - this is weird. Hopefully when I try them again - it will taste better!
This trail mix looked like a pretty solid mix of stuff.
I was sold on these mini cinnabons look-alikes as soon as I saw the box - cant wait to try them with some milk. snack tonight? so many choices!

I am off to finish my laundry and get everything packed up for tomorrow. (and have a snack or snacks) Hopefully I will be able to sneak away for some Internet time while I am out in Ohio, but if not - everyone have a wonderful thanksgiving and cant wait to catch up when I return.

Shopping hungry is always risky, but looks like you got some good stuff.

Will you let us know about the mango?

sweet, savory and tart trek mix is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G., IMO, the BEST mix of goodies in a bag!! Great call, and lots of other good snacks! Have fun!

Nice stash from TJs! :D Have a great trip. I'm not much of a car trip person so I always try to make it as less stressful as I can.

Your snacks look great! Well, all except the mango, which we got on impulse once awhile back-- I wasn't too fond of those. Let us know how the cereal is! Happy Thanksgiving-- have a safe trip.

Mmmm! Chili spiced mango! Yum :) I went out for nepali food for lunch. I had a 12 bean winter soup and a steamed bun. Soooo good. I wish I was better at identifying spices...then I could tell you what exactly was in it!
