Exclusive to the mode of mango, we’ve crafted sweet-to-be-square Mango Bar Bites that are nothing short of brilliant, if we do say so ourselves. Trader Joe’s Mango Bar Bites feature a...

Diced mango, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño peppers, seasoned with lime juice, sunflower oil and salt—Mango Salsa boasts fresh vibrancy, heat, and sweet, ripe mango flavor. Here’s the kicker, though—Mango Salsa starts frozen. When the tasting panel first reviewed Mango Salsa, deep discussion ensued. The quality was unquestionable.

Nourish Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer

June 03, 2016 in Category: What's New

You win some, you lose some. Not talking about Vegas. We’re talking about moisture. Your skin’s hydration is in constant flux—gaining moisture from your blood vessels and from the air around you, and losing moisture when damaged skin cells fail to maintain the moisture that’s been absorbed. When too much moisture is lost, you’re left feeling dry; a state that also promotes wrinkles and dull skin. Of course, the remedy for dry skin is lotion—and some lotions hydrate better than others. Our new Nourish: Enriched Intensive Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer is specially formulated for us by...

Muesli

June 01, 2016 in Category: What's New

There once was a Swiss-German doctor intrigued by the positive effects raw foods seem to have on the human body. He experienced such effects firsthand when he reportedly healed himself from jaundice by eating raw apples. Seeking a new, healthy, breakfast option for his chronically ill patients, Maximilian Bircher-Benner developed a cereal that came to be known as Birchermüesli—which effectively means: “Bircher’s little mash-up.” “Mash-up of what?” you ask. It was a...

Small Lot Sulawesi Coffee

May 27, 2016 in Category: What's New

Indonesia is an island country, an archipelago of more than 18,000 islands in the Eastern Pacific ocean. But fewer than 1,000 of these islands have significant, permanent populations—and Sulawesi is one of them. Sulawesi is also one of Indonesia’s oldest islands, and the eleventh-largest in the world. In South Sulawesi, coffee is grown in the foothills of the Latimojong Mountain area at altitudes of 3,000 to 6,000 feet above sea level. Coffee plants here benefit from the volcanic soils, and cool, dry climate. Trader Joe’s Small Lot Sulawesi Coffee is...
