    Flash pasteurized orange juice (can't seem to find any OJ better than TJ unless it's not-pasteurized, but the problem there is then it doesn't last)

    Maryland style crab cakes

    Veggie chips

    Mochi ice-cream balls

        All of their frozen vegetables are superior to any brand you can get in a regular supermarket. Love their Chocolate covered Blistered peanuts and Chocolate covered Peanut Butter filled Pretzels, all of their nuts and trail mixes, frozen shrimp, coffee's. Their Pasta that they sell in the yellow bags ($1.49lb) match up against any Italian Imported high end dry pasta that I have tried. I have basically liked everything I have gotten there, love the store!

            Yogurt, tomato soup, carrot ginger soup, and cereal. Not crazy about the fresh produce in the stores near me. I also bought some of their frozen foods on my last trip, but have not tried them yet.
