Cold Pressed Pumpkin Harvest Juice

October 26, 2016 in Category: What's New

Think of this as the convergence of two of our favorite things—pumpkin and cold pressed juice. It was bound to happen, and we can’t imagine a more delicious combination of crazes than what you’ll find in a bottle of Trader Joe’s Cold Pressed Pumpkin Harvest Juice. We contemplated a simple cold pressed pumpkin juice, but when we tasted it, it lacked the vibrant flavors of the harvest season. It needed more. So we went back to the garden and discovered a rainbow of companions to brighten and enliven the pumpkin. Every bottle of Pumpkin Harvest Juice contains...

Pita Crisps with Cranberries & Pumpkin Seeds

October 24, 2016 in Category: What's New

Pumpkin presents so many varied opportunities to create simply delicious foods. It also presents an opportunity to showcase not just the sweet, orange inner “meat” of the pumpkin, but also its savory, crispy seeds. Those seeds get their due recognition in Trader Joe’s Pita Crisps with Cranberries & Pumpkin Seeds. Unlike our other pita snacks, these are thick-cut, definitely cracker-like and wonderfully crispy. They’re made exclusively for us by a small, truly artisan bakery, using whole grains and seeds.  The pumpkin seeds add even more...

All Natural Ground Chicken

October 21, 2016 in Category: What's New

Ground beef is so passé. Okay, maybe not so passé—cheeseburgers will never go out of style. But ground beef isn’t the only player now, at least on the shelves of Trader Joe’s. We also sell Ground Turkey, and now we’re adding yet another choice to our offerings: All Natural Ground Chicken. Our All Natural Ground Chicken offers an excellent and exciting new option when shopping for ground meat—yes, we think Ground Chicken is exciting. Especially ours, which antibiotic free and from chickens fed all-vegetarian diets. The meat, a blend of white and dark meat, is 92% lean and 8% fat, giving it a mild flavor and moist...

Root Vegetable Galette

October 19, 2016 in Category: What's New

When can a pie be considered health food? When it’s called a galette and it’s filled with vegetables, that’s when? Okay, okay, Trader Joe’s Root Vegetable Galette isn’t exactly health food; but it is more or less a hand-folded, free-formed “pie,” and it is filled with vegetables. (Vegetables are healthy, right?) Here’s the scoop on this rustic take on a “pie”… We asked one of our longtime suppliers, a Canadian company that works mostly in the sweets trade, to indulge us with an indulgent take on a side dish. We asked for flaky pastry, something in which they’re well-versed. They delivered. Inside that flaky, buttery...

Whole Milk Vanilla or Mango Kefir

October 17, 2016 in Category: What's New

Kefir is yogurt’s drinkable, slightly fizzy cousin with an ancient, storied origin. Legend says that the prophet Mohammad first gifted the rare Kefir “grains” required to make this drink to the people of the Caucasus region. Thankfully, it was eventually shared with the Russian people. The world’s been Kefir-keen ever since! Something that should make the world even more Kefir-keen? Trader Joe’s Whole Milk Kefirs, of course. We already offer a Low Fat Blueberry Kefir and a Low Fat Plain Kefir, but our newest Kefirs stand out for their Whole Milk fat content, and for their flavors—Vanilla or Mango. Whole milk provides a...

Falling Into Chips & Dips

October 17, 2016 in Category: Entertaining

In addition to signaling the arrival of more pumpkin products than you can imagine, fall indicates another season, of sorts: the opening of (a lot of) parties season! Parties, get-togethers, gatherings, celebrations, carouses, bashes, festivities — they happen year round, but seem to exponentially multiply come autumn. And no matter the occasion, no other soirée-snack combination is as ubiquitous (or necessary, in our opinion) as the chip and the dip.

Halloween. Again. 2016.

Halloween is just around the corner, and that means you’ll soon be faced with the dilemma of what to give your neighborhood ghosts and goblins for trick or treat.  

Harvest Blend Salad

It’s October – when it seems that pumpkin patches are everywhere. Rather than wait for some great pumpkin-thing to happen, why not have a salad?
