trader joes

*I don’t know about you, but I am a Trader Joe’s die-hard fan. I am probably at the store at least four out of seven days. I make sure to always have their lactose-free coffee creamer (Hazelnut), Lowfat Granola Cereal (Mixed Berry) in the red box, spinach pizza and I can’t forget the Moscato wine in the fancy bottle (shhh…it’s great and only costs $7.99).

So why wasn’t I contacted to vote in this annual awards ceremony?

It’s considered Trader Joe’s version of the Emmy’s and for 8 years the grocery store chain has hosted a Customer Choice Award survey to see what its customers are loving.

Now the results are in.

According to Yahoo many of the products voted are available all year-round, but some are only  seasonal (these items are noted with an asterisk). So you know what that means, you’d better get while the gettin’s good. In other words: buy bulk!

Here’s the list of winning foods.
