Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea

July 06, 2016 in What's New

A long, long time ago we started selling Dried Chile Spiced Mango. Something about the combination of sweet, juicy mango and the heat from dried red chiles made this product irresistible. And now, with Mango Season upon us, we transformed these flavors into a unique, new product: Trader Joe’s Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea. Our Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea is made of high-grade black tea, and then flavored with organic dried mango pieces and organic dried red chile. All three of the ingredients in this tea are grown and processed in...

Organic Edamame

July 04, 2016 in What's New

Way back in the year 1275, a Buddhist priest wrote a thank-you note to a parishioner for a gift left at the temple. What was this gift, you ask? Edamame! Edamame has been gaining popularity ever since this first mention of the food. If Trader Joe’s had been around in 13th century Japan, we’re pretty sure our fully cooked Organic Edamame would have been a hit. Edamame, which means “stem bean” in Japanese, is loved for its...

July 01, 2016 in What's New

White House Cookie Kit

June 29, 2016 in What's New

“We the People of Trader Joe’s, in order to form a more perfect Cookie Kit...” Okay, okay, we know that’s not how the original goes, but this rewrite embodies our attitude when we decided to frame yet another holiday cookie kit, exclusively for Independence Day: the Trader Joe’s White House Cookie Kit. We took the idea of a traditional gingerbread house and did some gerrymandering—the kind without...

Organic Refried Pinto Beans

June 27, 2016 in What's New

There’s a reason beans are considered a musical fruit... because they go great with salsa (music)! Ba-dum-ching. But seriously, our Salsa Style Organic Refried Pinto Beans are no joke (in terms of how delicious they are). We’ve carried organic refried pinto beans before, and they were good; but not make-you-want-to-wiggle-your-hips-and-strut-your-stuff good. Clearly, we had to do something about that. What we did was develop these Salsa Style Organic Refried Pinto Beans that deliver phenomenal flavor and flair. You will want to...

Instant Mango Oatmeal

June 24, 2016 in What's New

It’s official. 2016 is marking another huge comeback for oatmeal—huge. Breaking out of the strictly-for-cold-weather breakfast bowl, it’s now a pan-meal, pan-seasonal must. Realizing that our oatmeal collection was a bit light on profiles that would tempt in the heart and heat of summer, we pursued something a bit fresher and fruitier. Guided by a proverb we once heard, “It’s not summer until you’ve eaten a mango,” we created Trader Joe’s Instant Mango Oatmeal. Beyond the whole...

Seeded Mango & Ginger Crisps

June 22, 2016 in What's New

We first had success with crackers of this nature with our Raisin Rosemary Crisps. That success led to Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps (for fall) and Fig & Olive Crisps (just because). When our minds moved to mango, we knew there had to be a mango flavor combination that would work wonderfully in this format. And we found it! The mango is vital here, but what really makes Trader Joe’s Seeded Mango & Ginger Crisps gleam is the...

Fromager d'Affinois Garlic & Herbs Cheese

June 20, 2016 in What's New

We are fond of all sorts of cheese. You can tell it’s true from a quick survey of the cheese case in any one of our stores. While we readily appreciate (and carry) cheeses with sharper, funkier profiles, we are just as enamored with the more delicate, creamy curds. Our June Spotlight Cheese happens to be of the most delicate, creamy kind. Fromager d’Affinois [Fro-mah-ZHAY dah-fee-NWAH] Garlic & Herbs Cheese is a soft-ripened cheese that benefits from...

Shooting Stars

June 17, 2016 in What's New

Summertime is camping time. Some people wait all year long for those perfect weather conditions that make sleeping under the stars an attractive possibility. Really, there’s nothing quite like it... the crisp, clean air on your skin; the night-time sounds in your ears; and of course the shooting stars, visible as they dash across the sky. Nothing goes better with summertime camping than summertime snacking, and that’s one reason we created Trader Joe’s Shooting Stars. The other reason is...
