I have become slightly obsessed with Trader Joes lately because I haven't been in FOREVER. I keep reading about others going to Trader Joes, eating Trader Joes food, etc, etc. I kept thinking that the next time I would get to go would be over the weekend....if I had time...then...
I was browsing around the Trader Joes website, sending them multiple requests that they should open one up in my neighborhood, and I realized there is one 5 MILES from my work!!!! How could I have overlooked this?
So. freakin. excited. (Its the small things in life ;)) I drove over there immediately. Came back with a Mid East Feast for lunch!
Sorry about the low-quality cell phone picture. Unfortunately, my pick for lunch was just OK. The Falafel was too greasy for my taste, so I just munched on the other items.
This particular TJs had a "NEW" section to feature new products. I never noticed this in others I have been too. I picked up a Chocolate Chip Fruit & Nut bar for only 69 cents. I guess it is TJs version of the larabar.
It was extremely chocolaty and had nice chunks of chocolate chips and almonds. If you are craving chocolate - this is a great treat.
Nutrition Facts: Calories:170, Total Fat: 4.5g, Fiber: 5g, Sugars: 21g, Protein: 3g. Not too shabby.
I also picked up some TJ Greek Yogurt (honey flavor), slivered almonds, veggie chips, and a few other new bars for me to try!!
This could be bad because I may want to go over there every day now to browse and see the new products...hmm.
In other news - thanks to my sister for reminding me that TOP CHEF starts tonight @ 10pm, Bravo. I love this show!
