Trader Joe’s cornbread mix: a warning.

After inspecting the box of cornbread mix to make sure there was NO mention of whole pieces of corn, what do I find when I dump the mix in my whisked milk eggs n oil?

WHOLE PIECES OF CORN! Nasty! I made it anyway since I had already started. They were very sparse, which was better than having tons in every bite, but made the decision to sneak em in even more mystifying.

Curse you,TJs cornbread! Jiffy 4ever

i don't think anyone anticipated consumers of cornbread to have an aversion to kernels of corn

finally got the horseradish and chives chips down here and they did not disappoint, goddamn.

i also impulsively bought the triple ginger brew. it’s very gingery and very good, plus the bottle looks cool.

these been mentioned? really good i think.

http://www.whatsgoodattraderjoes.com/20 ... chips.html

they remind me of those thick cut ones from a while ago that were maybe unsalted and fucking owned with the caramelized onion dip? those went away

these are in that same zone and you're gonna want to do them with the everything bagel spiced greek yogurt dip. maybe a little bland on their own for some tastes but i like em just fine like that too

I recently became gluten-free (FML) and the TJ's gluten-free bagels are pretty not bad. I also made a pizza with the cauliflower crust and it stunk.

The dark russet chips rule and made me super happy because I absolutely loved the dark russet kettle cooked UTZ chips and they don't distribute out west.

TJs potato chips are hit and miss, but the Ode to the Classic Potato Chip is basically perfect imo.

Decided I wasn't in the mood for a super labor-intensive Christmas dinner, so I went almost all TJs and it killed. Really good stuff.

-TJs bacon-wrapped porchetta
-TJs country potatoes with mushrooms and haricots verts
-TJs pesto genovese (was gonna make Italian salsa verde, but completely spaced on needing the ingredients until late yesterday and the stores were closed)

And then I made homemade brioche.

I mean, as someone who likes potato chips, I liked them. They're not some radical break from 'a good potato chip', though.

ha, yeah I probably should've just quoted someone and said something like wasn't really feeling these, bit too salty

but like 5 people put it over and I thought I was in for a nice treat and then tasted it and turned heel
