Their cheeses are better quality than the house brands at the supermarkets and a good value, as is milk, butter, and other dairy. Frozen to thaw dessert items like the chocolate ganache torte, the berry caky thing, and the cheesecake have been popular for potlucks or home meals. Don't forget fresh flowers -- here in L.A. they are about 2/3 or less the price of supermarkets or even farmer's markets.
They have excellent cheeses, hard to find spices and sauces, excellent canned items and very unique frozen items....main courses, fruits, veggies and yummy desserts!!! I also enjoy their line of organic products.....hard to find stuff that is actually affordable. Good luck! It's always a treasure hunt at TJs!!! It's worth the trip!
