    I love the Mandrin orange ‘chkn’ stirfry and really enjoy the TJ’s baked tofus!

    I don’t even know if I can pick just ONE TJs favorite?!?! But I do love those meatless meatballs…as well as the Spinach Kale Greek Yogurt Dip, the Black Bean and Quinoa tortilla chips, and their unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk! Told ya I couldn’t just pick one!

  3. Amanda D says:

    It wouldn’t be fair to make someone pick such a thing!
    But I do crave the black bean enchiladas every single minute of every day.

  4. Marie W says:

    I’m a huuuge fan of their mint chip ice cream. It tastes so natural and refreshing and the chocolate chips are actually made of really good chocolate!
    Oh, and the cinnamon apple snack sticks! Oh my…

  5. Amy says:

    My favorite TJs item is the store that is coming to my city next year!! :) (seriously, if I have to pick, since I’ve never been in one yet, is the chocolate/candy covered sunflower seeds I received as a gift from a friend).

  6. Lois says:

    My family and I love to build Salad Sundaes with organic lettuce and veggies from TJ’s. Favorite toppings include walnuts, shaved parm and feta.

  7. MollyG says:

    Oh man, too many to choose. Their kale chips for being so darned affordable. Their hummus for going great on my salad (that I’m eating right now!). Their repackaged Gardein products for being so much cheaper than anywhere else! And so many more!

  8. Ashley says:

    I love all of Trader Joe’s yummy hummus flavors! I go through at least (most likely two) containers every week

  9. Mary L. says:

    I love their vegan cookies. Must buy on every trip. Congrats on the early release of your book. Look forward to checking it out! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Aimee says:

    The cherry chocolate chip soy creamy ice cream. so amazing!

  11. Lee Ann says:

    I don’t have a favorite, since I’ve only been to one and only got to try a few things, but what I really like about TJ’s is that they have signs clearly marked vegan (so you don’t have to read every label) and that they are more than happy to print a list for you of everything in the store that is vegan. Counting the days until one opens here.

  12. Lisa says:

    A favorite? So hard! I think I have to go with the chickenless mandarin chicken.

    Congrats on your cookbook!

  13. Beth says:

    I’m pretty much addicted to TJ’s Mediterranean Hummus! :)

  14. moonsword says:

    Right now my favorite is their Spiced Cider. It’s just that time of year when I need to have it all heated up with some Halloween cookies. :)

  15. Erica Roses says:

    Eggplant hummus and their repackaged Popchips. Yeppers, those make me quite happy :-)

  16. val says:

    just discovered the frozen vegetarian samosas–new favorite obsession! (congrats on the book!)

  17. There are so many things I love at TJs – I always stock up when I’m near one! I’d have to say that the freeze dried fruits are some of my favorites right now!

  18. J Abshire says:

    It is hard to choose a (!) favorite, so I’ll list a few: cheddar cheese with carmelized onion (oh my) – melt a little of that on some TJ’s sprouted multi-grain bread with some thinly sliced fresh tomato and it is a fabulous lunch. I also really like the masala veggie patties wrapped in the frozen garlic naan bread. Quick & yummy meal with a salad. The triple ginger cookies make my heard bleed for joy. The almond croissants are pretty much to die for, too. OK, I’ll stop now. I’m looking forward to seeing your cookbook live.

  19. Jeremy says:

    So tough to choose just one, but the Thai vegetable gyozas are so delicious! So many options to choose from at Trader Joe’s…

  20. Jenny says:

    I recently bought their lighter guac (guac + greek yogurt). It disappeared across two meals. Woops! 😀

  21. Beth says:

    Oh my god… the COOKIE BUTTER!!!

  22. Alicia says:

    My favorite also has to be the cookie butter. By the spoonful.

  23. Karen says:

    Don’t enter us in the contest, because we already received our copy! So exciting! The book looks fantastic! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  24. danielle says:

    I didn’t even know TJ’s was coming out with a veg cookbook, and vegan versions of each recipe to boot?!?! Awesome!

  25. Natasha says:

    No Pudge Brownies OMG SOOO GOOD! though they are not Vegan, and they no longer carry them they were a wonderful treat while they lasted.
    I Love the Thai veg­etable gyozas .
    I am recently turning over a new leaf in life and becoming VEGAN and trader Joes is such a great place to shop they have alot of options even for my non Vegan hubby.

  26. stevem says:

    My favorite is a simple creation: a spoonful of TJ’s pumpkin ice cream between two thin triple ginger snaps. Yum!

  27. Amy says:

    I love that Trader Joe’s has PDF lists on their website of the vegan and gluten-free products they carry! My favorite is their extensive and affordable nut selection. Congratulations on the cookbook!!

  28. Jen says:

    Ughh…. If I have to pick ONE, it would be TJ’s cherry chocolate chip soy creamy… and number 2 would be like 16 way tie :)

  29. Sue says:

    I love so many things at TJ’s, but I would have to say I am addicted to their dried apples! All of their dried fruit is amazing, actually.

  30. debbie says:

    I just double checked your request for a favorite, and looks like it doesn’t have to be vegetarian. Although roughly half of our meals are vegetarian, we do eat chicken and fish. My fav is the Chicken Tikki Masala. I usually serve TJ’s Garlic Naan or Indian bread on the side and stir fry some of their organic pea shoots. I’m in heaven! Congrats on the new release!

  31. Jackie Rolnicki says:

    I love the vegan “meats” they carry. I try not to use them too often, but they are a nice treat every once in a while!

  32. Megan says:

    I’m addicted to TJ’s hummus.

  33. celine says:

    Congrats, Kris! As far as a TJ goodie goes, I have to pick their flaxseed peanut butter. Because, peanut butter, man. There’s no way not to pick that.

  34. Lori says:

    I love buying staples at TJ’s…their maple syrup, balsamic vinegar…inexpensive and great quality!
