You mentioned gingerbread mix -- do you know any place where I could buy already made gingerbread, fresh or frozen?
How about online?

We don't have a Trader Joe's where I live, but my daughter lives in Arizona and loves their inexpensive fresh flowers. I wish we had one here.

Trader Joe's makes excellent pizza sauce. I also love their chocolate-covered dried cherries, blueberries, and crystalized ginger. Their packaged topped-and-tailed green beans are a real time-saver, but you have to look at them carefully to make sure they haven't gone by. I had a package like that once that I didn't notice until I tried to cook them. I didn't go back for a couple of weeks to the store, so I figured it was just a loss. But I mentioned it to the check-out person that second trip, and she insisted on giving me a free package. Their sense of integrity is great, the fact that they take your word for it if there is a problem.

I just found a new Trader Joe's in Madison, WI. I loved going there when I lived in Sacramento. Now it is two hours from me. I bought some frozen creme brulee. A package of four was the same price I had paid an hour earlier at Whole Foods for one, though the one was a fresh bakery product rather than a frozen product. I can't wait to try one.

A friend told me about the green beans that are sort of a potato chip-like product. I got some for her.

Kristina, if you are in Madison, you have Zingerman's, don't you?? I've never been there myself, but it is a well known foodie temple. I think that's a Madison institution.

My most recent find at TJ is their capanota in a jar. It is so delicious - a rich but balanced mix of savory, salty, tangy and sweet. If you don't know what capanata is, it is a mixture of eggplant, kalamata olives, capers and various other tasty things. Serve it with pasta or as a bruschetta topping. Yum!

SK: This is something I make myself. With finely chopped crystalized ginger mixed in. One of my favorites.

From California, living currently in Europe. Miss Trader Joes solely because it was a one stop shop for all the ingredients for the best home made mediterranean style pizza. They had the dough, the goat cheese, olive oil --- name it.

Wouldn't call this 'intriguing', but I like the bags of frozen skinny little French greenbeans.
They taste better than regular sized green beans.
