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...

Paneer Masala Naan

February 02, 2015 in What's New

We’re known for our Indian food. Customers appreciate the authentic flavors and recipes that are delivered with quality ingredients, by suppliers who are actually Indian. Naturally, we’re also known for our naan—at least among those who love our Indian food. For our Indian-food fans, the new Paneer Masala Naan has arrived, none-too-soon. Paneer Masala is our first...

Organic Coconut Water

January 30, 2015 in What's New

There are several ancient and romantic stories about the origins of the coconut. All of them involve burying something (an eel, a lover’s head, a dead girl), and the subsequent emergence at the place of burial of a tree that grows tall and bears large, exceptional fruit. The origin of our Organic Coconut Water has a story, too—a newer and decidedly less legendary story, but one that nevertheless describes the exceptional qualities of our latest coconut item. Amidst the ongoing...

Uncured Sliced Corned Beef

January 28, 2015 in What's New

We’ve long carried Corned Beef in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick’s Day as an integral component of that most delicious holiday dinner. But, it’s been conspicuously absent from our stores at all other times of the year. We absolutely understand that this is no longer acceptable. Our customers’ yearnings for ‘corned beef with which you can make piled-high sandwiches reminiscent of your favorite deli’ have not fallen on deaf ears. Now, Trader Joe’s Uncured Sliced Corned Beef can...

Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies

January 23, 2015 in What's New

In a rare case of math offering the simplest explanation, we present an equation: c + cb = OMg. Translation for the mathematically challenged... cookie + cookie butter = Oh My goodness! (Exclamation added for non- mathematical emphasis.) OMg is also equivalent to our new Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies. By sandwiching...

Half Caff

January 21, 2015 in What's New

In 2013, we introduced Joe’s Decafthe decaffeinated version of our popular Joe’s Medium coffee. Those looking to basically eliminate their caffeine intake were overjoyed. Since then, we’ve come to realize there’s another kind of Trader Joe’s coffee customer out there—the kind who still wants a little jolt, just not the full shock treatment. For those only half-interested in caffeine, we now are offering Trader Joe's Half Caff...
