The Top 7 Most Popular Items Sold At Trader Joe's (Of The Day)

I've been to Trader Joe's exactly once. Clearly I am missing out.

From Huffington Post: "Trader Joe's isn't just a grocery store. It's a tiki-themed wonderland filled with pyramids of Cookie Butter jars and Two Buck Chuck. It's a place you enter thinking you only need to pick up milk but leave with a cart full of things you never knew existed -- PB&J chocolate bars, green tea candy mints, pumpkin macarons... the grub is unbelievable. We broke down the top-selling items by price and taste. Peruse below to see if you spot any of your addictions."

1. TRIPLE GINGER SNAPS
TASTES LIKE: DEEP, SAVORY GINGER ORGY

After the initial crunch, the cookie's inner chewiness melts in your mouth as you bite into the hot, tangy crystallized bits ginger. Like most of Trader Joe's dessert finger foods, this comes in their standard bucket-sized packaging -- a gentle suggestion to share, but you'll probably be tempted to devour it all solo.

PRICE: $3.99

2. COOKIE BUTTER
TASTES LIKE: SNICKERDOODLE DRUG BUTTER

You've probably seen this on Instagram with the caption #omg #heaven #obsessed. Texture is creamy like peanut butter and has a nutty, cookie flavor. It's not unusual for jars of Cookie Butter to disappear the moment it hits shelves and the best/worst part is that is goes great on literally everything from apple slices, bread, shoelaces, etc.

PRICE: $3.69

3. JOE-JOE'S COOKIES
TASTES LIKE: 'BETTER-FOR-YOU' OREOS

The Joe-Joe's line comes in vanilla creme, chocolate creme and the seasonal candy cane creme varieties. It's a lot less sweet than your regular Oreo fare and doesn't carry the same crack-worthy flavor. Still, like its cookie brethren, dunk > twist. This is not an option.

PRICE: $2.99

4. REDUCED GUILT CHUNKY GUACAMOLE
TASTES LIKE: TART, LIMEY

This lighter-than-thou item claims to have 50 percent less fat and 40 percent less calories than regular guac. Think guac whipped with Greek yogurt, which lends a light taste that's surprisingly addicting (I ended up eating an entire container like pudding). Amazingly, the airy dip manages to keep it hearty with chunks of avocado, tomato, and jalapeno.

PRICE: $3.49

5. CHARLES SHAW WINE ("TWO-BUCK CHUCK")
TASTES LIKE: IT DEPENDS

Yes, it's no longer the iconic "Two Buck Chuck," but at just 50 cents more, it's still a boozy come up. The quality varies, so it's a bit like wine roulette. In general, however, the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot tend to be the best picks of the varieties, while the Saugvignon Blanc usually tastes like spoiled bananas. You've been warned.

PRICE: $2.49

6. FROZEN MAC & CHEESE
TASTES LIKE: MILD, SAVORY, SALTY TANG

Gooey, melty and loaded with four different cheeses -- the cheddar, havarti, Swiss, and gouda help class this up. A compromise between frozen dinner and stove-top quality, this is as good as microwaved grub gets.

PRICE: $2.99

7. CHILI-LIME CHICKEN BURGERS
TASTES LIKE: LIME CHICKEN

At 4 per box, it's a great deal and a refreshing option if you're looking for a break from beef. You'll definitely feel the citrus on this one, while the promised chile holds back. We dressed this up with the Reduced Guilt Chunky Guac, which helped amp the lime flavor, and drizzled on a healthy helping of Sriracha. Definitely recommend trying this at home.

PRICE: $3.49

News: 'Mandatory Vagina Inspection' Letters Prank Rattles Minnesota High School

From MyFox9.com.
'Mandatory vagina inspection' letters grace Prior Lake HS mailboxes

PRIOR LAKE, Minn. (KMSP) -

A letter written on imitation Prior Lake High School letterhead tells female students they must attend a “mandatory vagina inspection” before the year's end, and it’s prompting the school and the families who received it in their mailboxes to wonder who's behind it.

The letters were hand-delivered to about 50 mailboxes, and an image of the letter has been circulating on Facebook, Twitter and Reddit, students crediting it as one epic senior prank.

The letter reads, in part,

To all female students at Prior Lake High School:

The district is required to conduct a mandatory vagina inspection on all female students at Prior Lake High School in accordance with Minnesota Health Code 69. End-of-the-year vagina inspections will occur in the Blue Gym.

The mandatory health inspections will be conducted Friday, May 23, 2014 promptly at 8:05 a.m. Make ups will occur the following week on Tuesday, May 26, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. All students who have not already completed a vagina inspection MUST attend one of these two mandatory sessions. Students will be excused from any classes they miss in order to attend an inspection.

Students MUST complete a vagina inspection before the end of the year. The Traditional Midwestern “Pass/Fail” judging system will be used.

SENIORS who do not pass an inspection before the end of the year WILL NOT GRADUATE.

Principal Dave Lund sent an email to parents saying the school is aware of the letter and will be “addressing the issue internally,” also mentioning the letter was “done in extremely poor taste.”

Administrators aren’t sure if they can reprimand the perpetrator because there’s no evidence it was written or printed on school property.
