    TJ's has so many good products and many are 'hidden gems' waiting to be uncovered.
    What are some of your tried and approved products from Trader Joe's? Please share.

    Wines that are reasonably priced.
    I must have tried all their Pinot Noirs....even used their cheap Blue Fin brand in cooking.

    And the old Two-buck-chuck! The Charles Shaw wines are good for cooking -- and drinking while cooking. Try some full bodied Shiraz in your Rohan Josh the next time around. Even at their current $4 a bottle, the best cooking, and marinating wines from Charles Shaw. Pinot Grigio in light colored soups.
