My husband claims he saw people going in and out the other day.....and they didn't look like workmen.

Is it open?

    No, not open, at least as of yesterday; we walked by around 2:00 p.m. and they had a chain linked gate, padlocked, blocking off the entire driveway. I think people are so anxious for it to open that T.J.'s had to close off access to folks.
    Are the orange/chocolate slices THAT good? Where in the store do I find them? if they are near the chocolate covered raisins and jelly/jam sticks, I think i can find them.

        Jeez, don't even remember writing about these. Can't point out where they are exactly. You should ask. They are orange jelly filling shaped into small fingers (about 1.5" long) and covered with chocolate. I think I must love them in part because they reminded me of childhood candies. They are a bit bitter (in a good way) and chewy. They are packed in see-through plastic tubs.

          I think those are the same as the jelly/jam sticks she mentioned. I used to be very fond of the raspberry version.
