Step aside Golden Globes and Oscars: These are the awards we really care about. Trader Joe’s (aka the best grocery store *ever*) just released its 9th annual customer choice awards winners and It. Is. Everything.
Too dramatic? Well, that’s just how excited we get about TJ’s. In fact, the location closest to our office has been known to have a line out the door. And we still wait in it. That’s how big a deal it is.
Like any good awards show — er, online list — there were the expected winners (hello, dark chocolate peanut butter cups), as well as some upsets and surprises. Here are some of this year’s favorites (plus the runners up), otherwise known as our grocery list for the week:
