Cheese tastings at Trader Joe's?

greygarious Apr 13, 2008 08:04 AM

I saw a TV ad which, if I've got it right, said there will be cheese tastings at Trader Joe's stores from 5-7 pm on April 15. I find no mention of this on their website. BTW, I can't get enough of their English Cheddar with Caramelized Onion.

      At the Coolidge Corner shop, they have little flyers at the checkout that say wine and cheese tastings on Tuesday (4/15), Wednesday(4/16), and Thursday (4/17), but didn't have any times listed...

        I was in the Coolidge one last night - yes, it is Tues/Wed/Thurs 5-7pm for the wine and cheese tastings according to the signs on the registers.

          yeah, i remember seeing a flyer saying something to that effect last time i was in a TJ's. i like buying cheese there, they have decent stuff at good prices, but i can't imagine making a special trip for a tasting - nothing they sell is really that impressive. i'd go for free samples at formaggio kitchen over TJ's anyday.

            The one in Framingham is having a wine and cheese tasting on Tuesday the 15th , I think the flyer said from 5-7.
