I agree 100%. That's why I like stuff from Trader Joes. For example, their maple sugar cinnamom shredded wheat cereal is organic and tastes great. Thanks for the endorsement. I'm going to go have some (maybe even a lot) right now!

Just because it's organic doesn't necessarily mean it's good for you. Anything process and has sugar added it probably not good for you. Not everything at Trader Joes is good for you.

That's very uncharitable. I think Trader Joes has good food at good prices.

The issue wasn't whether or not Trader Joes has good food at good prices.
