Are they any good? How do they compare to the national brands?

      I like them. Much better than Nestle. Not sure I like Ghiradelli more. I like Guittard better, but they are a different form factor too. Can't beat the price....

      I really like their white chocolate chips - they are actually white chocolate and the price is fantastic. Seasonal so I stock up and use in any recipe that uses white chocolate. Ghiradelli is not cocoa butter based.

        made cookies last night with half TJ's chips and and half Ghiradelli. seems the latter is a bit creamier in texture. agreed on the white chocolate chips from TJ's. Only if they had them year round :(
