Absolutely Love It - with a side note

I love it, but could do without the food chewing and talking while chewing on a hot mic.

Research

I just started listening to this podcast and love the whole idea of it! The closest Trader Joe’s is an hour away so I’m doing all my research before making the trip…. Btw I plan on making a trip very soon. I work at a grocery store and only have a few option where I live to buy groceries and I’m excited to branch off and find a new place to buy quality foods at affordable prices!

Stealing recipes

I am disappointed to learned that TJ has stolen a recipe from a small business and marketed it as their own. Shame on you guys! The podcast needs to address this.
