People gush about Trader Joe’s. You know, because of their deals and awesome staff and of course, their fresh and quality produce. Did I mention their customer service is TOP-NOTCH?
Recently, some employees spoke out about what to get at Trader Joe’s. I know I buy as many frozen mangoes as I can, but ideally, I’d love to buy everything in the store.
According to Inside sources, the .19 cents per banana is actually a steal.
“Bananas are a good deal,” one employee told me. “Nineteen cents apiece. I’ve actually gone and weighed a pound, and you can get five bananas for under a dollar. Whereas if you go elsewhere, you’re paying for the peel.”
Two-buck chuck is great, but TJ’s carries some wine that taste even better priced around $4.99 to $5.99. You still don’t break the bank to get drunk on tasty wine. Isn’t that great?
“We have a lot of wines that are between $4.99-5.99, and they’re all really good,” a helpful employee told us. That includes the Chariot red, an Italian Contadino pinot grigio, and a 1967 Toscana. There are also wines priced up to $120 p/bottle, but we’d recommend instead buying 24 bottles of the $5 wine.
Organic Sweet potatoes
There’s a lot of ways to cook sweet potatoes and Trader Joe’s helps you out with that because you can get a 3lb bag for $3.99. And because they’re organic, you can be sure you’re getting the good stuff.
At $1.99 per carton, it’s a great price. (Egg prices have gone straight through the roof recently!)
