Better than a Trader Joe's cookbook, this book takes you back in time through a vintage Trader Joe's flyer Imagine life without the Internet, cell phones, or Trader Joe's. For many, that described 1982, the year that TJ's mailed a flyer to our house. We left this flyer in our car, where it lay hidden for years. (Hoarders unite ) A fan of culinary history, I wanted to bring TJ fans a glimpse of Trader Joe's history - when there were only 16 locations in Southern California. You won't believe what then were new, exotic foods that we now cannot live without. Witness Trader Joe's inspiring customers to become the adventurous, health-foodies we are today. This amazing 35-year old flyer unlocks the secrets to how TJ's keeps us coming back for more. This unauthorized "fan non-fiction" book about Trader Joe's feeds you light-hearted tidbits about our food history. It's the perfect gift and conversation piece for TJ's fans of all ages - especially now that Trader Joe's is more than 50 years old.
