Best grocery store: Whole Foods or Trader Joe's? | The Tylt
After Whole Foods teamed up with Amazon, the chain cut prices by 43 percent, addressing one of its customers' biggest qualms. Now, the masses can enjoy Whole Foods quality without the guilt. And with such a delicious hot bar, it's hard not to return for lunch and dinner! Trader Joe's, on the other hand, is a grocer for the people. It always has samples, foods you didn't know existed and warm, smiling employees to greet you. Which grocery store is better?
Best grocery store: Whole Foods or Trader Joe's?
Whole Foods' partnership with Amazon changed the game. The chain went from being that grocery store that you only visited on special occasions to the market you frequent. Plus, Amazon Prime members get perks when they shop at Whole Foods AND can have groceries delivered to their home. Nothing beats a grocery store that doesn't require leaving the house.
But if you do choose to hit up a brick-and-mortar Whole Foods, you are greeted with abundant organic products, endless vitamin and supplements, a full hot bar of delicious food, and depending on your location, you might even find clothing, a coffee shop, and freshly-baked desserts (don't sleep on the vegan chocolate chip cookies).
At some locations, you can even shop with a glass of wine in your hand. No other grocery store out there can beat that kind of shopping experience.
Trader Joe's is the hero of the grocery shopper. From its art-covered walls to its smiling employees, Trader Joe's has all of your essential items and then some. Most of its products are Trader Joe's-branded, making prices are extremely reasonable.
TJ's brought you everything bagel seasoning, pepperoni pizza macaroni and cheese, and the infamous two-buck chuck. (Who needs a glass of wine while shopping when you can get the whole bottle for a few dollars?) Is the world a better place because of these products? Yes, yes it is.
Skeptical about some of these new-age foods? Not a problem at all. Trader Joe's will let you sample anything in the store; all you have to do is ask.
