Trader Joe's Diaries

Captain's log, August 26, 2012.  A stunningly beautiful crisp late-summer's day.  Brunch is eaten, bikes are ridden, etc.

I enter Trader Joe's late afternoon and my heart is lifted, as normal.  This is meant to be a serious expedition to get me through the week: meats, vegetables, rice.  I already had a lot of fun stuff at home, like Indian parathas, Dunkers, Cookie Butter, etc.

Yet no trip to Trader Joe's is complete without something fun, so I get some gummy bears.  The packaging is delightful, and when I open the bag, a most fragrant, pleasantly fruity smell permeates the air.  Oh wow!  I notice that these gummy bears are made with REAL fruit and vegetable extracts.  I love extracts.

I should also note that the friendly cashier spoke of "the greatest burger in the city," from a place called Korzo, which apparently does indeed exist. An investigation is warranted, which I will document in my log...the Captain's log.
