Trader Joe's Shrimp Vermicelli Vietnamese Style Salad

An empty stomach, a moderate salad craving, and a new product sign led me to this discovery! 

Trader Joe's Partially Popped Popcorn...with Butter & Sea Salt!

Easter has come and gone and so has my salty crunchy fast. Yes, it's been three weeks. Never mind that. At first, I was a little concerned that my tastebuds had changed. I wasn't sure if foods were actually too salty or if it was just the shock of having salty crunchy foods again. In fact, I was a little concerned that I wasn't enjoying them as much as I did before. Or maybe I enjoyed them too much before? In any event, this reverse tastebud shock still has me questioning all my reviews of the salty crunchy until THIS not-popcorn! Needless to say since the initial writing of this review, I'm back to my old salty crunchy ways and this was the gateway snack.

Trader Joe's Cara Cara Navel Oranges

I got super excited when I saw this bag of oranges with a Trader Joe's label - because it made these babies eligible for my blog! Around this time last year, I had been at my current job not too long but I was already raving about my happy place (Trader Joe's in case y'all were wondering :P) to anyone who would listen. A coworker came back raving about these "pink oranges." We were all befuddled. Pink oranges? Don't you mean grapefruit? He insisted no but couldn't remember the name. I went to the store in search of them only to be told that they were long out of stock. Instead, I found these peculiarly shaped minneolas, which turned out to be just as delicious and popular. Lo and behold, a few weeks ago I found these! 

"I'm an ORANGE, but I'm PINK!"
