Twenty-three products that are trending at Trader Joe's -- and might show up in Denver

I spent the last week in California, splitting my time between Los Angeles, where I had a stellar dinner at Night + Market, a Thai restaurant that pimps everything from fried pigs' tail to pigs' blood, and Newport Beach, a city whose restaurant scene is depressing, save for Pizzeria Mozza -- and even that was disappointing, albeit more because of the lousy service than the pizzas, which deserve the hype.

Most of my time, however, was devoted to touring farmers' markets and cruising the aisles of Trader Joe's, the cultish specialty grocer that got its start in California and will open two stores in Colorado, one on East Eighth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, in Denver, later this year, and a second store in Boulder, slated to grace the People's Republic next year at 1906 28th Street, in the Twenty Ninth Street mall.
