Contemplates Inner Peas
The bag says these are a "crunchy baked green pea snack," which sounds like a phrase a healthy yoga mom would use to unsuccessfully convince a fussy 4-year-old to eat them. But when they were described as "crispy like a potato chip, but healthier for you," we were excited to get down(ward dog) on a bag.
Dried baby bananas
A tiny package that looked dwarfed by basically everything else in the "New Items" section were the "Dried Baby Bananas," which is not a particularly appetizing name. But one TJ's employee told us to look past the name... and how it appears. "They're really good," she said. "They look horrible, but they're packed full of potassium. And they're sweet." On the upside, they're only $1.99 (again with the cheap bananas), and if you truly hate them, TJ's will let you return food pretty easily!
