I once heard a comedian say that Trader Joe's is the largest collection the world's largest collection of stuff that you will never need but somehow wanted anyway. And I really think that's true.

The menu has been enhanced by the cool different exotic foods that one can find at a Trader Joe's. Plus it always gives you the opportunity to try something for the first time that you never would've thought of eating before.

I'm such a Trader Joe's fanatic that even though it's pretty far from where I live, I make it a point to go there at least once every couple of weeks to try out one of their some of their foodie randomness. Just try to explain to somebody who is never been inside a Trader Joe's exactly what it is and I think you'll understand what I mean by randomness.

If you're not lucky enough to have a Trader Joe's near you I've got a perfect solution to the problem. The folks at TJ's have come up with a way to request a local store right on their website. You can do so by clicking this link.
