My Trader Joe's Shopping Trick

Friday, October 9, 2015

We recently had a Lucky's Market open up near our home. Which means I now have access to five different grocery stores within a two mile radius. And it's nice, really, because I'm rather fond of food. And unlike shoe shopping, I thoroughly enjoy grocery shopping. If you've popped into Trader Joe's in the last couple of weeks you have probably noticed the seasonal pumpkin explosion. Pumpkin everything! A flavor I fully support.

But you know what I do on a regular basis whenever I shop at Trader Joe's? I take a look at the end caps located nearest to the check out counter, then ask the cashier Have you tried those zesty nacho kale chips? or Are those chocolate covered sunflower seeds any good? And you know what? Nine times out of ten the cashier will offer to open up a package. Just like that. They'll usually say something like Would you like to try some?, to which I never protest. Because that's the beauty of shopping at Trader Joe's: They WANT you to try things. So I give them a little nudge, because you can't get what you don't ask for.

Ps. Those cranberries & pumpkin seeds pita crisps are ridiculously amazing.
