Trader Joe's Harvest Blend Herbal Tea

Dear friends, I am sipping this tea while I write this post. It is my second cup of the day. It is that good. Foxes and fall? I'll take that and another cup of tea please. The other day I went to pick up a box for a coworker, and they were completely out of stock! (This reminds me of that time TJ's was out of some pumpkin spice cereal, and out of desperation I bought it [for someone else] with Amazon Prime because I thought they had pulled it from the shelves. Lo and behold, three TJ's trips later, there it was back on the shelf). You better believe I'll be stocking up on this seasonal baby to last me through the cold winter. It's $1.99 for a box of 20 tea bags, which by the way is CHEAPER and BETTER than any Tazo tea.

Trader Joe's Spicy Chicken Sausage

I got duped. Again. 

Trader Joe's Jalapeño Greek Yogurt Dip

Trader Giotto's Kale, Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Pizza

What have I learned from shopping TJ's on an empty stomach? Nothing apparently. Everyone knows the stomach takes over the decision-making process when empty. That's what happened here. I came hungry, found these at the free samples counter, decided it was decent, and purchased. Plus, I LOVE kale, so I fell into the free sample trap. For the record, free samples are a scam. Except for the time TJ's offered speculoos ice cream. That stuff deserves to be sampled everyday.

Trader Joe's Country Pumpkin Spice Granola Cereal

This post is a long overdue. I bought this cereal maybe a month ago, but it's been sitting because cereal is no longer consumed frequently at my house. The college kid moved out, and ain't nobody got time to sit down and pour a bowl of cereal anymore! Anyway, of the 34 or so pumpkin variety products, this one looked moderately appealing. I really want to call it Country Bumpkin Pumpkin Spice granola cereal. I imagine little kids pounding their fists and chanting, "Country Bumpkin Pumpkin Spice! Country Bumpkin Pumpkin Spice!"
