I'll throw in on some TJ's hate
Quality tends to suck. Paper Towels and TP are always a good bet, though. I do have to admit a horrible guilty pleasure I partook in tonight. I'm not sure if these are everywhere, but the chocolate soy ice cream sandwiches, the little ones. I took some vegan confetti sprinkles left over from Xmas cookies and put them around the ice cream part of the sandwich... oh it was a cheep thrill...
There are various vegan lists for stuff there. Trader Joes is just a spruced up Aldi (same company just gourmet off label products). I think they alter the products a little bit and use lower quality ingredients. Here's a good youtube that sides with TJ's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lffFi54995Y
I guess it depends on what you are buying. I don't jive on their produce, but I do like their frozen fat free vegan rice.
