Unique Trader Joe’s Locations You Have To Visit In The US

0 8

There’s a Trader Joe’s in almost every state. Only the far-flung ones — Alaska and Hawaii — and a smattering of other states, including Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Wyoming, are outside of the brand’s reach. Still, in the other 42 states, there are Trader Joe’s locations ranging from sea level (hello, California coast) to over 7,000 feet in elevation. The highest-altitude Trader Joe’s store? Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The city of Santa Fe is situated at 7,198 feet above sea level — the highest-altitude capital city in the United States. There are some pretty epic mountain views from the parking lot, but you’ll also notice something unique inside the store: puffy bags of chips. Why? Atmospheric pressure. There is less atmospheric pressure at higher altitudes, which means the gas (aka air) inside sealed snack bags can expand until it tests the limit of the bag itself — and might even pop under the right conditions. Your shopping cart full of your favorite Trader Joe’s snacks is safe, just exercise caution when opening so you don’t wind up with a potato chip explosion.
