Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - 3rd quarter 2011 [Old]

[I did search for "tomato soup" in this thread before posting this]
We love the organic creamy tomato soup. Can't count how many times that tomato soup supplied our RDA of vegetables. I wish I could make it at home. All the creamy tomato soup recipes I find online are too fatty or too runny like tomato juice. Is there a knock off recipe someone could point me to?

Lemon chili tortilla chips (strips?). They were the only one chips with green chillies mixed right in to the chip, not like the powdery garlicky gook (with MSG) I find on most "spicy" chips.

7 oz fage yogurt cup + "working glass" plastic lid = it fits

Thanks for the great tip! I have a bunch of those working glasses and the Fage yogurt cups are great for storing leftovers and tossing them in the recycle bin after rinsing them without running through the dishwasher.

Fage yogurt price drop: Any reason?

I noticed that in the LA area, Fage greek yogurt prices have fallen recently. These are not the sale prices, but just the regular prices. Trade Joe's used sell the 7oz cups for $1.89 a few months ago, now they are $1.50.Costco used to sell a kilo of the non-fat kid for about $6.50, now it is $5.19. Even at Sprouts, it is cheaper than it is used to be a few months ago. This week Ralphs has it on sale for $1 for 70z. I did not notice a drop in the price of milk and neither did a drop in the quality of the yogurt.

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas about the price drop.
