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 be lying on your (real) pillow, dreaming of Crisps.

To make these Cornbread Crisps, we first make cornbread. Yes, the traditional, fluffy, flavorful cornbread. We use cornmeal, sunflower oil, and sugar for this step. Then, the cornbread is flattened and cut into small diamond shapes. Into the oven they go, and out come crunchy bites of cornbread. A touch of sea salt creates that perfect sweet-salty flavor balance that results in Crisps you won’t want to put down.

Our Cornbread Crisps pair wonderfully anywhere you might want traditional cornbread. Crumble into bowls of soup. TJ's Butternut Squash, Turkey Chili, Black Bean, or Tomato Feta, perhaps?

But they’ve got more to offer, too! Make an appetizer with Cream Cheese, Turkey Chili, and Three Cheese Blend, and dip those Crisps like crazy. Of course, they also make an excellent anytime-you’re-in-the-mood-for-cornbread snack.

We’re selling each six-ounce bag of Trader Joe’s Cornbread Crisps for $2.49, every day. That means on any day, at any time you so choose, you can be snacking on bites of crunchy cornbread. What a dream.
