Mostly all of their products are just other brands they paid to put their name over.

They don't sell it as is as part of the agreement because then those brands wouldn't get bought elsewhere with their higher price tags

Some brands, typically smaller ones allow to be sold as is because it gives them exposure

They're not actually Takis, look at the ingredients on a bag sometime, TJ doesn't carry shit with preservatives and artificial flavors/colors

Love the TJ's takis. Also put some carrot cake spread on biscuits Saturday morning and was pretty blow away as I do not like carrot cake.

That smoked english cheddar with chives and spring onions is boss as hell. I made a grilled cheese with that and a double cream gouda and it was amazing

If you like smoked salmon, consider trying the smoked rainbow trout. It's cheaper and slightly less fishy. More delicious, IMO.
