What Foods At Trader Joe's Are Actually More Affordable?
By Stacie Adams
Trader Joe's is a grocery store with a one-of-a-kind inventory that has many Americans' devotion. The store was ranked number one in a 2019 poll looking at quality and price that surveyed 7,000 households, according to Fox Business.
The chain purposefully lacks any brand-name products as their items are carefully sourced and meticulously tested to meet the high standards of the store. Since these products are under their own label, Trader Joe's is able to mark them at more affordable prices compared to other grocery store chains.
Many of the products found at Trader Joe's are more affordable than other stores thanks to its preference for 'generic' goods. Some great finds include seasonal items, nuts, gourmet cheeses, flowers, pasta, and wine, which are typically cheaper than other supermarket chains, but this is only true for certain items; so, you’ll have to research where you can get the best deal.
