I have no idea why this post took me forever to get to! I had taken the photos, edited them, knew exactly what I wanted to say, and I was so excited to start this giveaway!! Yet…I did everything I could, besides just sitting down and writing this post! haha! I have to laugh at myself because I think that I am so gosh darn stubborn that I am defiant even against myself!
ok..so enough of that! I’m here now, I am writing and It’s going to be done! yippy!
Many of you have heard me talk about how much I LOVE Trader Joe’s and all of their yummy foods and snacks, I’ve posted pics of snacks I eat from Trader Joe’s on my TwitPics, I’ve talked about them at Twitter Parties, I mention them on a weekly basis if not more! I shop at regular markets also, but I get the best stuff ever at Trader Joe’s.
They are an unconventional food store, they don’t have a lot of main stream name brand items, more of their own brands, but you can find items there that you cant readily find at big stores, and certainly not as fresh, natural, or tasty!
I love to shop at Trader’s for frozen dinner items! They have the best dinner items such as Orange chicken, sweet and sour chicken, jasmine rice, tamales that taste homemade, fettuccine Alfredo, OMGOSH the list is endless! But the point is you can make a complete meal that totally tastes home made! another of my favorites are the fresh frozen french green beans, I love to make spicy garlic green beans with them. They also have lots of fresh fruits and veggies, heaps of cheeses (my favorite being the marinated mozzarella) and plenty of desserts and snackies!
Although I wish I could share everything I love from Trader Joe’s with you all, it would be impossible for me to mail fresh or frozen food to you or to have you all over for dinner..so the only thing I could think of was to buy a few of my favorite (mailable) snacks and treats to share with one lucky winner! So lets get to the giveaway part of this post 😛
The items the winner will receive are as follows:
1- 12oz. bag of TJ’s Honey Wheat Pretzel Sticks (the perfect combo of sweet and salty)
1- 4.2 oz bag of TJ’s vacuum fried Banana Chips

1- 8oz bag of TJ’s Chile Spiced Pineapple (my personal favorite!)

1- box (20 bags) of TJ’s Peppermint Tea (This is my favorite Tea-hot or cold!)
1- bottle (100 tablets) of TJ’s Natural Papaya & Pineapple Enzymes tablets (these taste so yummy and they aid in natural digestion)
