There are plenty of reasons to like Trader Joe's: helpful employees in Hawaiian shirts, a no-questions-asked return policy, unusual items such as cookie butter and rosemary marcona almonds, and -- best of all -- low prices.

However, not everything is a good deal at Trader Joe's. We compared non-sale prices on a variety of items with similar items at Harris Teeter, Kroger (KR), Walmart (WMT) and Whole Foods (WFM). While we found that it's tough to beat Trader Joe's everyday prices, there are a few things that are better bargains at other stores.

Here are eight items you can get for less elsewhere -- and in some cases we're talking dollars less, not just pennies. For each one, we've suggested related items you might want to purchase instead at Trader Joe's because the regular prices are better than you'll find on competitors' shelves. And we end this slide show with a bonus item that's cheap at Trader Joe's -- but you have to judge if it's worth it.
