    Not "triggered", but just confused as to how you are not fond of an entire grocery store's range of products. It's not like they specialize in one type of product. The Trader Joe's branded products all come from different suppliers, so it just seems like a pretty wide brush to say you don't like all of them.

    There are products that I like from there, and some I don't, like you could say about any grocery store.

    Generally speaking... just think the super unique and trendy products are a bit over-hyped

    There's been quite a big wand-touch to this thread from the over-generalization fairy, IMO. 🙄

    It’s a grocery store, but just a bit quirky. I like it because it has so many pumpkin things in the fall,prominently displayed. I’m sure they do the same thing for Christmas, spring, summer, etc. not sure what they have for those seasons. They have a bigger variety of cheeses than the grocery stores near me, but mozzarella is mozzarella, wherever you get it. Our TJ’s has
    Very little fresh beef, my favorite meat. It’s about 2 miles from my dentist, so would be easy for me to go twice a year. I go once—for the pumpkin.

    Um, no. Sure, the same brand/quality is the same everywhere, but there are quite a few types of mozzarella, and a range of goodness in different producers' versions of each type.

    I'm not speaking for TJ's mozz - good or bad - here, just disagreeing with the generality.

    To state another generality: Pretty much any cheese variety or style is available in a range from pretty awful quality, to pretty delicious. (Different people prefer different types, of course; and I'm not saying everyone will agree on which version of which variety is best, either. But "the same everywhere" across a variety of varieties/versions, or even with a variety . . . not agreeing with that.)

    I, too, disagree with this. Cheese is like chocolate and wine. Terroir is everything

    And maybe that’s part of why I’m not a really good cook

    Maker matters hugely, too. Same inputs (same terroir), different maker, methods: Results can be very different.

    Sriracha is not good. It was so trendy for a long time. Sriracha flavored popcorn, chips, etc.

    I LOVE hot sauce and put it on everything, but only Franks or anchor bar buffalo sauce.

    I do not like tabasco (unpopular) - I'm a sambal oelek fan and use Frank's original (only that one)...I put that sh*&^t! on everything!

    I buy this one and always have it in my cupboard...6nr4wa7vexaw.png

    Same, I buy it in the giant jug too !! 😅

    @pancakerunner ahh I hate tabasco! I used to always be so mad when I’d go to a restaurant and all they had was Tabasco lol. I like the sweetness of Frank’s.

    I like a huge variety of different hot sauces, including sriracha. (I don't think that's unpopular, but wanted to stand up for sriracha.)

    actual sriracha has it's place, but sriracha FLAVORED things are a little over rated
