Whole Foods vs. Trader Joe's

The other day, my mom and I drove to Winter Park. We wanted to try out Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.  We don't have any stores like that in our town...well, we do, but it's pretty small. There's always so much hype over these stores, so we decided to give it a try! 

First we went to Trader Joe's.  The girls were just so excited to get their own cart!

I already had a lot of what I would normally get there in stock in my pantry, so I was just kind of comparing prices.  I did however, find some YUMMY frozen meals (like eggplant and veggie mix!). And I found this peanut butter goodness.

I already use PB2, but I thought I'd give this a try too.

Then we headed to Whole Foods.  

This place was a bigger and had a lot more pantry goods.

I found some Goji berries, which I haven't been able to find at my local Publix.

And some Coco-Roons, which the TIU girls talk about a lot. Look at all those flavors!

So, here's my vote on the two stores.

While Whole Foods has a lot more pantry goods, and a fancy cheese and wine section, they are more expensive.

I really liked the "meals" that Trader Joe's had to offer, and how Trader Joe's even has their own line of food and meals, which are actually really good! They were cheaper too.

Which do you prefer? Do you have a different store in your town?

  1. I am totally a Trader Joe's girl! I love their cheese tortellini, their wine country chicken salad, their latkes and they have awesome chicken burritos. The people that work at TJ are so friendly I've found which I really appreciate. Whole Foods just has an intimidating vibe to it and is more expensive for sure.
