big leightons’ favs #6

This go-round, I’m actually sharing TWO favourites, both new discoveries, from Trader Joe’s!

Here’s the thing, I either LOVE TJ’s products, or I’m completely underwhelmed. I’ve found there’s really no inbetween for me. They have some of Little Leighton’s favourite gluten-free treats. I’m always tres impressed with their produce department. They have unique finds, and everything is always so pretty! However, some of their processed/packaged foods lack flavor, IMHO. Again, that’s just moi.

We made a quick stop to TJ’s the Friday before school started because LL LOVES their GF frozen waffles (and I love their $1.99 price tag). While browsing a bit, we came across our first new favourite:


We have actually tried the “original/plain flavor” before (and snagged a bag on this trip, too). This was the first time seeing this flavor, though, and let me tell you what, I could have eaten the entire bag myself. I begrudgingly shared with my children. I even let ELC try one. The bags are small. I suggest getting AT LEAST two, if not four. (This bag had already been opened when I took the picture.)

As we were about to check-out, we came across this:


Y’all. This is a Capri Blue “Volcano” knock-off. (You know, the ones they sell in Anthropologie?) Ohmahgosh. It’s so good. It smells identical. I bought three that day. They’re $4.99/each. I also think they’re seasonal. I had to pop-in the following Monday. There were four of these candies left, and I immediately scooped them up. You need to hurry down to your local TJ’s and buy them out. They are THAT GOOD.

I hope y’all had a restful, peaceful weekend. We spent yesterday finally painting Elle’s room “ballerina pink!” It’s so sweet and girlie. I’ll need to share a picture soon!

Happy Monday Eve!
