Finally, Minneapolis has a Trader Joe's. There has been talk about it for quite awhile and a lot of speculation. I am happy to say that it is open for business! I realized that it is only 5 miles from my workplace, so I took off early today to head over there and it was a madhouse. The police are out monitoring traffic and parking spaces are hard to come by.
Once inside the store, I saw that there wasn't much left on the shelves which always instills a sense of panic! I had my list of favorite TJ items and tried to manuever my way through the crowds the fastest I could just in case someone was grabbing the last of my much needed Green Tea Ice Cream.
Overall, I feel it was a pretty successful trip and as always, the cashiers are a delight to talk to. Here's what I picked up:
*Yogurt Dill Papadum (wanted the curry ones, but already gone)
*Heritage Flakes (for Ryan)
*Green Tea Ice Cream
*3 Grain Tempeh
*Chocolate Soy Milk
*TJ's Cocktail sauce
Aaron, my cashier told me they may be opening one on the East Side closer to St. Paul, which would be ideal. Exciting!
