Your Top 5 Trader Joe's Products? [OLD]

Got to love TJ's, my top 5 not in any order:

1. Frozen Chocolate Croissants (know one mentioned yet?)
thaw the night before, pop in oven - yummo!

2. Chocolate Covered Potato Chips - yes, they have them there..weird but sinfully good

3. Chile mango
one of my favs

4. Smores Ice Cream Sandwiches
these are a family favorite

5. Vanilla Almond Cereal
Tasty, and healthy

Thanks @MyNextMeal for directions to the Miss Food Carts - do you have specific favs/dishes that you recommend?

From Northern Cali.

We most likely will have had breakfast by the time we reach Portland, though I love pancakes, I think my family may want something more hardy.

The food carts actually sound fun and yummy but they all look a little out of the way. I don't want to veer too far from I-5. The perfect blend would be place that can meet an adult palate (I'm more adventurous than the hubby) but a menu that also will please my picky 10, 3, and 2 yr old.

Looks like a fantastic, fun, and educational museum - thanks for the recommendation! We are spending several days up in Seattle and have planned to visit the Pacific Science Center so I have to dilute the educational activities :-)

I love brussel sprouts - but if this place can get my kids (and hubby) to feel the love too...that would be a miracle in itself!

Our family is making a stop in Portland on our way to Seattle and looking for a kid-friendly restaurant, good food, that is conveniently located off I-5. Does such a restaurant(s) exsist??

Come across some great kid-friendly recommendations with good food but most seem to be a little out of the way from the freeway. But not being from the area, it's not as easy to tell from mapquest.

Any recommendations???
