Trader Joe's

Trader Joe’s is a privately held chain of specialty grocery stores headquartered in Monrovia, California. As of October 2010, Trader Joe’s had a total of 349 stores in 26 states. Trader Joe’s was founded by Joe Coulombe and is owned, since 1979, by a family trust set up by the late German businessman Theo Albrecht, one of the two brothers behind the German supermarket chain Aldi.

Unlike typical grocery stores, which may carry 50,000 items, Trader Joe’s stocks about 4,000 items, 80% of which bear the Trader Joe’s brand. Trader Joe’s maintains low prices by having smaller and plainer stores, using plainer packaging, and carrying a smaller variety of products.


Organic Corn Flakes

I love corn flakes, and these are just as good as any other corn flake I’ve had. These are ~~*organic*~~ so I feel like I should feel better about myself while eating them. I do, so I’m pushing the satisfaction rating up to a solid 7.
