The latest Fearless Flyer from Trader Joe’s recently came out and of course I had to make a few trips to get some of the featured items.
Brewed Ginger Beer
We love the new ginger beer offered by Trader Joe’s. With pieces of ginger floating inside, this non-alcoholic ginger beer has a good punch to it. We previously enjoyed the triple brewed ginger beer that Trader Joe’s offered over the holidays, but what I like about this one is the individual serving sizes. We plan on going back to Trader Joe’s again really soon to stock up on more.
Ts & Js Sour Gummies
I like the “T” and “J” shapes, which are quite cute. I do wish they came in other flavors other than a citrus variety which aren’t my favorite flavors when it comes to gummy candies.
Mozzarella Cheese Log
These cookies and cream brownies are super fudgy, thick and a little bit chewy.
If you can’t already tell, I have a cookies and cream obsession. Making a cookies and cream brownie or blondie has always been a bit of a struggle because most of the time the bars turn out on the cakey side. Not these though. These are ultra fudgy.
Great Maple is a popular brunch spot in San Diego that has been on my to-try list for quite a while.
We finally had a chance to check it out recently. The place was packed when we arrived, with a wait time of about 40 minutes. We actually made reservations ahead of time on Opentable, but we still had to wait 30 minutes before finally being seated.
Bacon Maple Donuts
We started off with warm, fresh bacon maple donuts. These were one of the main reasons I had wanted to try out this restaurant. The donuts tasted great. Warm, fluffy, covered in a sweet maple glaze and studded with bacon. There are three donuts to an order, which was a little too much for just the two of us, so we ended up boxing the last one.
Smoked Bacon Scramble Melt
I chose a bacon, avocado, tomato scramble melt, topped with mozzarella cheese and basil. Accompanying the melt was a slice of grilled olive oil and fig cake, potato scallion cake and fresh fruit.
