    Boy, they've wandered far from the nest now.

    Jamba Juice is pretty widespread. Without one's mum or Trader Joe's, I suspect many a pitiful bachelor would die, or at least be really overweight and unhealthy.

    Out here it's difficult to complain - you'll either spend $10-12+ a day eating crap, or maybe a little more than half that for fairly healthy stuff there (or a lot of time and money going to other stores and cooking, if that's your bag). Cooking for one is remarkably difficult and costs quite a bit. They've filled the healthy frozen meals and organic stuff niche out here where people often don't have the time or drive to cook much. Their customer base basically consists of post-college bachelors (and the occasional female equivalent), the Volvo-driving pseudo-hippie soccer-mom set, and a certain subset of health nuts. Last time I dropped by (last week), I ended up behind another bachelor, who was behind another, who was behind another who had just left. The one in front of me commented about this...

    I shop for major stocked items at Sam's Club, frozen meals and snacks at Trade Joe's, and fresh vegetables at Henry's or at the local farmer's market they hold every week about a block from here.

    Is California really what it's cracked up to be? It's always portrayed as some amazing place, but thats in movies and TV shows, many of which are aimed at preteen girls, so I'm skeptical.

    But either way I think I would trip hard balls if I woke up in february and wasn't surrounded by snow. I can't imgaine living in a snowless place at all...

    But I'd still like to see California (and a lot of the West Caost) some day

    Yeah Trader Joes is all around Maryland too.

    (O/T)
    What's also migrating away from its nest is Wegmans, based out of upstate NY. Not the same thing as TJ, but, it's definitely a grocery super-superstore. <3 their bakery.

    Well, all their stores are still pretty close to the home area... but expanding: Store Locator | Wegmans

    We love TJs, which is great for wine, snacks, cereals & bread, milk & other dairy products.

    Some good friends moved to Austin - they miss Trader Joe's and our fabulous, cheap local produce market the most.

    TJ's has been on the east coast for years but it just got to NC last year or the year before. And now there's one 15 minutes away that I visit two or three times a month.

    It's super awesome, that's why so many people live here.
