Above Average Joe

There’s Safeway, Kroger, Costco too,
And Piggly Wiggly?  It’ll do.
But frankly, everybody knows
The cool folks shop at Trader Joe’s.
Yes, every hungry yuppie flips
For zesty soy and flax seed chips,
Roasted salsa (that’s José’s)
And hot wasabi mayonnaise.
There’s fresh mixed chard if you’re in luck
And fine domestic Two Buck Chuck!
With choice, intriguing foods like those,
Who needs Ragu and Cheerios?
Sophistication really shows
When people shop at Trader Joe’s!

    I love it when The Daily Rhyme brings out the curmudgeon in me. I hate the hype with Trader Joe’s, I’ll make sure everybody knows.

    I especially like this verse: “Roasted salsa (that’s José’s).”
    I wrote to the company to complain that Trader Giotto’s line of Italian products was not properly named. “Beppo” is short for “Giuseppe” which is Italian for Joseph.
    They just gave me a standard ‘thank you for writing with your concerns’ answer.

  3. I can’t stop myself from adding this commercial for a longtime favorite TJ’s product:

    May TJ’s never call a halt
    to air-popped popcorn with sea salt;
    organic and with olive oil,
    its light green bag is lined with foil.
