One has to be selective at Trailer Joe's. Some of their products are really sketchy.
Avatar 12:45pm still b/p:

And all the products on their shelves should be regarded as temporary offerings. They often vanish for long periods or for good. Ain't no tea leaves or palmistry or graphology gonna help you with what to expect there in your shopping future.

i usually end up doctoring up prepared dishes from trader joe's.
sometimes they're really good though. i had i think it was 3-mushroom ravioli from there that was good. needed garlic or something though.

That TJ's is my day-to-day butter, well, it and its salted counterpart. It isn't at all like what the article describes. It's good, but not wonderfully buttery.

Jeff (@12.53) yes it's a 1/2lb hunk. the packaging is fragile too, so it's kind of a pain but it's delicious and i don't use much butter so i figure i can afford it. it's significantly less expensive at tjs too.

Avatar 1:26pm still b/p:

When I bitched (again) in a casually frustrated way to a staffer at TJ about the frequent disappearances, he tried to put it in terms of many different suppliers and a constant drive to find good things and keep them affordable. But it's still a wwwwacky business model -- significant and persistent unreliability. But I'm still walking in the doors with so many others, so...wacky or not, it works, and change ain't likely comin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:27pm coelacanth∅:

Rich (@1.04) yeah there's a despicable aspect to trader joe's business model. they offer better-than-average prices, in general, but they'll only set up shop in wealthy communities.

We recently got one (T.Joes) in DC, in an absurdly over-gentrified neighborhood where apartments easily exceed $3K/month. The affluent youngsters flock to it daily like a plague of gilded sparrows clutching their wine & quinoa. Quite amusing.

I would go to my neighborhood food co-op, but there isn't one.

that's what aldis is for. whatever keeps two german millionaire brothers from squabbling. family first, I think the aldi/trader joes/europe/america thing is a clever way to avoid fratricide
also been covered extensively in previous comments sections. No radio station's audience is better informed about the history & business practices of Aldis & Trader Joes than wfmu for some reason. just keeps coming up.
Avatar 1:35pm βrian:

Our local coöp has extremely large margins, and it accumulates cash so quickly it needs to spin off a brand new store every few years. To my mind, they're kind of missing the point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm chresti:

TJS started out as a delicatessen in...Monovia, CA, I think
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Krys O.:

I've been shopping at Aldi. I'm stunned at how low the prices are. The food is not terrible. They might not have everything, but they come quite close for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm coelacanth∅:

haha true Johnzon, but i think it's because food is a popular subject.

i shop at trader joe's mainly because it's the closest store to where i stay when i'm working in ct. now i've grown fond of certain things that i only find there, or only find there at a price i can pay.
i still shop at the local shoprite and "health food" store where i live.

has there ever been a cooking or food-talk show on fmu?

Avatar 1:52pm still b/p:

Yeah, the TJ produce does go bad too quickly too often! Cautious about it. Asked about and emphasized it was a thing, and staff reacted as if never heard such complaints and had nothing to say when I asked if they bought second-quality, older produce to get deals. There's one of our chants when the protests start: "What good is cheap if the fruit don't keep?!"
And, "Trader Joe, taste my tears! All the good stuff disappears!"
Avatar 1:54pm βrian:

And those sadistic checkout counters!
  1:54pm Dean:

I suspect TJ's sources produce more or less locally, because I've not had a problem with it, at least no more than at my go-to market, Berkeley Bowl West. One day I'll pay $0.69 there for a pound of strawberries (really) that last a good while, another day a $2.00 basket will turn in a couple days.

I'm at peace with the disappearing stuff (except, maybe, the 12 oz. tins of Bay Blend coffee beans), because I understand that they're dealing with sometimes ad hoc supply circumstances to keep their prices (relatively) low.

the tjs on the east coast get most (or all?) of their produce from their warehouses on the west coast. at least less than a year ago that's what i was told -when there was that lettuce scare. their lettuce was free of the bacteria or whatever it was because they knew exactly where it was coming from.

Spent all of Tuesday thinking the next day was Thursday.
Then spent all of yesterday thinking it SHOULD DEFINITELY be Thursday.
Now it is actually Thursday, so it feels like I've had three consecutive thursdays this week. Thanks to yesterday's problem, seems like today should be Friday. This would be fine since tomorrow would be Saturday, but I would need to work that "saturday" since it's technically Friday (death to consensus reality)...

i awoke early tuesday morning really stoked to hear Grachan Moncur III -the opening to Scott McDowell's show that i haven't heard in a long long time. i got to hear the Clay> Matt transitional banter, which i'd never heard before. (which was pretty damn funny!)
-then i managed to sleep late yesterday and miss Grachan Moncur III...again.

Nunzio was a kind fellow, taught music lessons (clarinet, violin, etc.) in a glass booth in the back. But he would smilingly interrupt lessons to come sell me an LP or 45: Meet the Beatles, Bringing It All Back Home, Peter, Paul & Mary. But I digress..
