Hi everyone~
I am still new at this and was wondering if you all could share your best OP food finds. Mine are:
La Favorita corn tortilla's - 40 calories for 1
Sara Lee Delightful Wheat bread - 45 calories for 1 slice

I found another bread I like better but it is 50 calories - Bavarian sunflower bread.

Thanks for sharing your finds!

Love Trader Joe's but unfortunately we don't have them here in Colorado :mad: I am told they won't open stores here since the grocery stores cannot sell liquor.

Which ones do you like? I have tried the ranch and honey mustard dressing and could not stand either one of them.

They have a new "Chipotle Ranch" salad dressing that is yummy...(to me :)

I like there carmel dip for apples, their chocolate syrup and dip, along with their version of maple syrup. I haven't tried everything, but I personally like these products for sure!

what store do you get them at? i finally found a couple of their salad dressings at Publix...i'll have to look for the caramel dip - would make eating apples more fun for sure!

La Tortilla Factory flour tortillas--50 calories, I think. And MRC suggested Bragg's Amino Acids which taste like soy sauce, without all the sodium.

We have a Trader Joe's about five minutes from my house and due to CT Blue Laws, no liquor can be sold within a grocery store. We have no $2 chuck, but we at least have the food! :o

That is interesting. I am originally from California where they are all over the place. When I moved to Colorado I contacted Trader Joe's to ask if they had any plans to open stores in CO and they said more than likely NO since liquor could not be sold in the grocery stores here. Of course this was in the 90's. I think I will ask again.

I did not know about the Bragg's Amino Acids.........that is so good to know. I could use it for a tasty stir fry. Thanks for the tip!:D

Faerychic,
I'm in Colorado too and also love Trader Joes. My family lives in Tucson, so every time I'm down there, I stock up on stuff. I was told recently that they aren't coming to Colorado because of the liquor thing. So sad!
