Kiplinger, a publisher of business forecasts and personal finance advice, compared prices of Trader Joe's products to similar items found at Kroger, Walmart, Whole Foods and Harris Teeter.

"For the most part, we found that it's tough to beat Trader Joe's. However, there are few things that are better deals at other stores," wrote Kiplinger Online Editor Cameron Huddleston.

Here's the full Kiplinger comparison breakdown in "Best and Worst Buys at Trader Joe's" http://bit.ly/UvIOEx.

Best Buys:

  • Crackers
  • Frozen meals
  • Natural toothpase
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Organic French roast coffee
  • Organic fruits and vegetables
  • Organic ground beef
  • Organic plain yogurt
  • Organic spinach
  • Quinoa
  • Specialty cheeses

Worst Buys:

  • Conventional fruits and vegetables
  • Frozen fruit
  • Natural detergents
  • Organic chicken
  • Shredded Mozzarella

Huddleston noted that Kiplinger's comparison did not include Trader Joe's Charles Shaw wines because not all stores are allowed to sell them due to state or local restrictions.
