Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - January 2013 [OLD]

Nay on NY strip steaks....wassup'? I bought them a month ago and they were amazing, I bought them this week and they were shoe leather!!! Cooked exactly the same way. These are from the TJ's in Morgan Hill CA. If you are out there trolling and reading, please take note, the meat dept. is wildly inconsistent. I was super disappointed by this purchase.

Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - January 2013 [OLD]

yay- For the kids: flour-less chocolate cake, chocolate gobs, carrot cake gobs (gobs are good... aka whoopie pies), mozzarella string cheese, the cream yogurts, esp. vanilla!
For us: Persian cucumbers, morelo cherries, speculos, pumpkin spice coffee, the chicken breasts, sausages, steaks, TJ's Indian appetizers, their mixed frozen "fresh" seafood... AND, BTW, last year our store carried the Euro cookie tin, this year no, so I found an equally divine Euro cookie w/Belgian chocolate @Costco!
Nay- Have not liked much of the previously mentioned frozen foods such as: mac n'cheese, mandarin chicken, turkey meatballs. But, hands down something all 4 of us can agree on is: THE MANGO PEACH OJ!!!!!! wow, great w/vodka or tequila...that's a cocktail...happy new year!
