Sunday Run to Trade Joes- Food Recs?

Hey MFP Fam! It's Sunday and for most of us that means the weekly food run. I'm making the pilgrimage to Trader Joes with the boyfriend today and wanted to know if you guys had any good recommendations? I know this has been a thread before, but since they are always updating their products, I thought I'd bump it back up :)

    Putting some out there myself, I'm a big fan of the precooked lime grilled chicken, the premade salads to take for lunches, and the salmon burgers (only 100 cals each!)

    They have pretty good store brand beer. By good I mean awesome. I'm heading to pick some up for football today after my run

    Do a search, there were a lot of threads about it.

    Personally, I get the frozen shrimp stir fry, it's good, and maybe 160 calories for the whole bag. I like the gazpacho soup and their fresh salsa too. I love their Greek yogurt cups, less carbs than other brands (the fruit kind). The 100 calorie chocolate bars are a must too. I bought the reduced guilt mac'n cheese but haven't tried it yet.

    For more unhealthy stuff, I absolutely love their 'tarte d'alsace' (with the frozen pizzas) but haven't bought it in 9 months... need to splurge soon.

    I love that their quinoa is only $3.50 for a one pound bag. There isn't a Trader Joe' s in my area, but some friends were at one while they were traveling and brought me some quinoa, along with a box of the ginger cashew almond granola (it's great with yogurt!) and a few containers of the strawberry vanilla yogurt. That's a total indulgence since it's full fat yogurt, but I can have half a container of it once in awhile as a treat.
