Curried Carrot & Cashew Dip

September 18, 2017 in Category: What's New

Whether you’re vegetarian or not, we think you’re going to love Trader Joe’s Curried Carrot & Cashew Dip. To all you non-vegetarians... please trust us here; the non-vegetarians in our crowd exhibited similar skepticism, and were quickly convinced—all it took was a single taste. This is a mostly-smooth, creamy dip with just a bit of texture. It tastes like it has a creamy base – that’s the cashews – which, perhaps surprisingly, blend to a smooth and creamy...

Camel & Goat Milk Soaps

September 15, 2017 in Category: What's New

At Trader Joe’s, we really do travel the world in search of incredible products that present incredible values. On a recent food-finding trip to Turkey, one of our senior Product Innovators—always a fan of a product with a great story—came across two bars of soap so simple, so pure, and so interesting that she had to bring them back for us to try. We are pleased to report that it was love at first lather...

Calamansi Cooler

September 13, 2017 in Category: What's New

The Calamansi fruit is a natural cross of mandarin oranges and kumquats, native to Southeast Asia. On its own, the fruit is slightly sweet, and also sour—think of the zing of a sour orange, or a surprisingly sweet lime, and you’re on the right track. The fruit is incredibly popular in the Philippines, where it’s added to drinks, hot sauces, fish dishes…even beauty products. Our Product Developer felt this fruit deserved a stateside starring role in our stores, so they created the newest addition to our beverage lineup: Trader Joe’s Calamansi Cooler...

Cornbread Crisps

September 11, 2017 in Category: What's New

One of the defining (and popular) features of cornbread is its fluffy, cake-y softness. Like a pillow, but made with cornmeal. Trader Joe’s Cornbread Crisps don’t have this signature fluffiness. But that’s okay! As the name suggests, they’re crispy, like chips. This is not a quality you’re probably looking for in a pillow, but it is a great quality for a tasty, crunchy snack. It’s is a new thing for cornbread, but we’re pretty sure it’ll only take one bite for you to...

Organic Reduced Sugar Cherry Preserves

September 08, 2017 in Category: What's New

Many moons ago (we’re being dramatic—it wasn’t that many moons ago), we carried conventional Cherry Preserves in our grocery section. We discontinued them due to slow sales (our customers vote with their dollars, after all), but we’ve been fielding requests for a replacement ever since. But we couldn’t just bring in any cherry preserves. In the spirit of Kaizen, we knew we could improve them, and improve them we did. Introducing...

Peanut Butter Protein Granola

September 06, 2017 in Category: What's New

Granola is delicious. If you take one look at our cereal aisle, you’ll see that we back up that assertion with variety. Mega variety. We’ve got Toasted Coconut Granola, Almond Butter Granola—heck, we’ve even got Grainless Granola! And now? Now we present you with Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Protein Granola. Because granola is delicious, and getting an extra protein boost in that granola? Bonus!

Seed & Bean Medley

September 04, 2017 in Category: What's New

When you hear the words “seeds” and “beans,” birds and boys named Jack climbing beanstalks might come to mind, respectively. But what we’ve recently discovered is that a combination of the two leads to an irresistibly crispy snack—a snack for humans that does not contain magical beanstalk-growing legumes. That snack is Trader Joe’s Seed & Bean Medley, and we’re pretty sure that it’s what you’ll think of when you hear...

Organic Cacao & Maca Powders

September 01, 2017 in Category: What's New

Maca might be new to most North American grocery shoppers, but in South America, this revered root has been used in cooking and in medicine for well over 3,000 years. Grown high in the Andes Mountains, it looks a bit like a cross between a turnip and a radish. It’s been called the “Lost Crop of the Andes,” “Peruvian Ginseng,” and “Inca Gold,”—but we’re calling it simply Trader Joe’s Organic Maca Powder. Add a tablespoon to your morning smoothie, stir it into a piping-hot bowl of TJ’s Quinoa & Steel Cut Oatmeal, or use it in baked goods to lend a bit of nuttiness to the finished product...

Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry

August 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

While there’s a certain satisfaction that comes from cooking a meal from scratch, there’s equal enjoyment when something tastes like it was made from scratch, but cooks in a fraction of the time. The plethora of meal options in our freezer cases is a testament to this convergence of convenience and enjoyment—why stand over a hot stove or cutting board (and later, the kitchen sink) when you have tasty, pre-prepped meal components, ready to heat and eat at a moment’s notice? Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry is the newest addition to our user-friendly frozen lineup. A boon to the home cook, it...
