Trader Joe's Master Thread

Went to the new store in brick today. Very pleasant shopping experience. Prices reasonable. Plenty of kosher certified options (many of them dairy though). If anyone could post reviews on kosher products they have found, that  would be a help to all.

I generally get the following items from Trader Joe's:
Soy Creamy (both flavors)
Mango Sorbet (it has an australian hechsher that the star-k said is good)
honey roasted peanuts
white whole wheat flour (100% whole wheat- different strain of wheat which isn't as basebally) (much cheaper than King Arthur)

Also you can always find PY; babka, black and white cookies, soft peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, and specific bagels in most locations.

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
