Nope, can't stand Funyons or the IKEA meatballs. Especially Funyons.

I like milk, but I've never been a fan of whipped cream. The made-from-scratch stuff can be really excellent, but it's unfortunately uncommon. The stuff from the can, blech.

Do you prefer French Fries with Mayo instead of Ketchup?

Yesss. I have recently fallen for fish 'n' chips (specifically at Gullifty's in Bryn Mawr, PA), and the accompanying tartar sauce goes well with all of the above. Don't need ketchup at all.

$7+ for a four oz bag?! Or is the Costco size bigger?

I've loved those peaches for years. Single-ingredient wonders.

Philadelphia Bucket List

Don't miss Claudio either. The mozzarella -- plain, marinated, braided, burrata, all of it -- is to die for. I have completely converted my boyfriend . . . He doesn't buy cheese from the supermarket anymore -proud-

TRADER JOE'S:Microwave friendly

I second the Indian, especially the Palak Paneer. There is also a frozen item called Cod Provencal that I like a lot. The texture of the fish, once done, is so good it's hard to believe it's frozen.

They also have a large selection of delicious premade salads, though there are some misses. The kale bistro salad and the one with wheatberries, quinoa, and butternut squash are my favorites.

The frozen is good but not on its own. I think it would work well as a topping.

You mean the Peanut Butter Goodies. They were discontinued a long time ago, over a year. I honestly think the ugly packaging was the problem, as they WERE amazing.

Discontinued at Trader Joe's: January 2014-June 2014

I wouldn't be surprised if they are discontinued; they got returned a lot when I was working there.

Yesss. Their honey roasted peanuts are superb. I could eat 'em all day, and at 3.99/lb, it wouldn't break the bank . . . only the scale

Did it just open? The shelves should be better stocked once the madness dies down. . . .

The plain crumpets are superior to the cinnamon. I'm glad I tried the plain first or I would have written them off altogether. You indeed don't split them... I like them mildly toasted with lots of butter and a little lemon curd or honey, depending on my mood
