Organic Pomegranate Seeds

February 23, 2015 in What's New

In today’s world of ultra convenience, virtually no one has the time for fruit with seeds. Recognizing this, horticulturists have developed seedless grapes, seedless watermelon, seedless oranges... Despite the clear sociological preference, we are willing to bet that no one is holding out for the seedless pomegranate. For the pomegranate, seeds are the fruit! Plus, their crunchy, sweet-tart profile is...

Pretzel Bagels

February 18, 2015 in What's New

Traditionally, pretzels have knots—or at least, a twist. Trader Joe’s Pretzel Bagels do not have knots. Perhaps, that’s the twist. After seeing the popularity of our Soft Pretzel Sticks, we decided it was time to bring the Pretzel Bagel around. Speaking of a round, that’s the shape—a circle with a hole, like your typical bagel. But, unlike the typical bagel, our Pretzel Bagels have a...

Vegan Tikka Masala

February 16, 2015 in What's New

The combination of meat pieces (“tikka”) in a creamy sauce with savory spices (“masala”) is an Indian-style dish that is popular in restaurants around the world—especially in the U.K. where some say it originated. Trader Joe’s carries a few different versions of Tikka Masala, including Paneer Tikka Masala, and Chicken Tikka Masala. But, while our pieces of chicken or cheese cooked in Indian curry may keep carnivores and vegetarians grinning, the vegan who craves Indian food has had little reason to smile... until now...

Sprouted Organic California Rice

February 13, 2015 in What's New

Way back in 1989 (yes, 26 years ago), we introduced a rice trilogy that hailed from California. It was unique to us, and sold in our stores for many years. As our customers’ tastes in grains evolved, we had to make room for new things, and sadly, the trilogy’s time came to an end. Cut to 2015 (that’s now), and the trilogy is making a bit of a comeback, albeit in a newly nuanced format. Trader Joe’s Sprouted Organic California Rice is a...

Cocoa Batons

February 11, 2015 in What's New

Every now and then, we take a good, hard look at the products we offer. Sometimes, we end up saying goodbye to a few items to make room for the new. Other times, we’ll find ways to improve upon what we have. That’s what we’ve done with Trader Joe’s Cocoa Batons—formerly known as Petite Cocoa Batons. When we revisited the previous version, we realized they were...

Pitted Dark Sweet Cherries

February 06, 2015 in What's New

It may be that the only negative thing about fresh, ripe, summertime fruits is that you can’t get them in the off-season. Sweet cherries are among the best of the summer fruit crop, but once their short season is over, it’s a long wait until the fresh crop is available again. Wouldn’t it be great if you could satisfy your cherry cravings, even in the middle of winter? Trader Joe’s Dark Sweet Cherries, thanks to the phenomenon that is the freezer, are...

Shishito Peppers

February 05, 2015 in What's New

An exotic delicacy iconic to izakaya (Japanese tapas/appetizers/bar food), the Shishito Pepper has become a ubiquitous and fashionable finger-food of late. Here’s why: Shishito Peppers are enormously delicious and a bit daring, couldn’t be simpler to prepare, are famously finger-friendly, and make perfect appetizers. Native to Japan (perhaps via Portugal, some speculate), the slender, green peppers have...
