I need your help!

My brother is sending me a Trader Joe's care package, and would like to know what to send. Since I'm up in Canada, I'm not very familiar with their products.

I use their BBQ sauce on my burgers, but would like to know what your favorite Trader Joe's items are!

Beer. Almost any type of beer they sell at trader joe's. Of course it depends on what kind you like. You wouldn't buy an IPA for someone that likes stout. You know what I mean? Maybe not such a good care package item, but that's what I'd want. Sorry. I'll go sit in the corner now.

Haha, thanks for the reply Josh!
Since he's sending this up to Canada, booze can't(legally) be part of it. Trust me, there are SO many bottles of booze I'd like shipped up here it's not funny.

Ok, other than booze

Well, that's true. I guess you can't ship beer. I like the ginger snap cookies. Not sure if you're a cookie person, but I love them things.

Trader Joe's currently has Pyrat White on sale for $7.99! That should certainly be included.

The seeded sourdough wheat bread is one of the best breads I have ever eaten. Sometimes I have a meal of just that and maybe a little wine.

So many wonderful items there.

Their enchilada sauce & whole wheat pasta.
Everything else I like there is frozen or illegal to ship.

Isn't that always the case though? Ha!

yummy!

I once had some tiny little round cookies that tasted like fortune cookies.
I'll have to ask for some of those too!

I will second the ginger snaps recommendation they have chunks of real ginger in them. They are called triple ginger snaps and they are yummy! If you are healthy they have some really interesting trail mixes and if you are not so healthy yummy candy check them out online there's a candy blog.

Yeah, those ginger snaps are really tasty. I also like their chocolate-covered cherries, they have liqueur in them. I imagine this care package won't be refrigerated, so you won't be able to get my #1 favorite, the blue cheese pecan dip.

Cherry Almond Crunch! or whatever the cereal is that has the big dried cherries in it. Fantastic flavor! Those cherries are so big and chewy - almost like gummi bears - and the rest of the cereal has a crunchy almond flavor, and when you are done the milk that is left in the bowl is cherry flavored.

My parents visited me this past April, and my dad had a bowl, and he said it was really good - the first time in my life he ever voiced the pleasures of a breakfast cereal.

I also like their ginger flavored Altoids, which I haven't seen anywhere else.

My local Trader Joe's is just a few doors down from the local ABC store, so whenever I buy groceries at Trader Joe's, I usually also stop in to buy some liquor also, or to see if they have anthing on sale or new in stock. Which means that I find myself shopping at Trader Joe's more and more - perhaps for the same reason that W.C. Fields carried whiskey in one pocket in case of a snakebite, and then carried a snake in the other pocket.

If I remember correctly, Trader Joe's buys up the entire batch from who ever wins the yearly "Best Maple Syrup" contest in Vermont. Don't ask me who the judges are... they might be Trader Joe's accounting staff for all I know. But it's damn yummy.

oh... and if you can't get it at your local grocery, Soy Vay!
