3 Cheese Wafers

September 09, 2016 in Category: What's New

When it comes to cheese crackers, the options out in the market are seemingly endless. It may shock you to discover, however, that many of these so-called “cheese” crackers don’t have any actual cheese in them—really! Rest assured, nothing could be further from the truth when it comes to our 3 Cheese Wafers. One of our Product Innovators first found these small, snack-size crackers while on an airplane to...

Wines for the Picking

September 08, 2016 in Category: Wine Insider

How does that saying go? You can pick your wine, and you can pick your friends, but you can’t pick your friends’ wine…? Something like that. As your friend (we're friends, right?) we have a hard time abiding by that old wine-friend-picking adage. Clearly, we already pick the wines we carry in our stores; and that picking is tantamount to us saying, “Here, friend… these are some wines we’ve chosen for you.” Still, we’re well aware that staring at the rows of bottles in any of our stores might arouse some anxiety, culminating in the moment you grasp the fact that you still have plenty more picking to do! Grape farmers can relate; September is picking season...

September 07, 2016 in Category: What's New

Coffee Mochi

September 05, 2016 in Category: What's New

As any Crew Member can tell you, our customers love mochi ice cream, which is often referred to in freezer-aisle conversation as just mochi [say: “MOE-chee”]. We’ve long carried the stuff in Green Tea, Strawberry, Mango, and Chocolate flavors, and in 2014, we introduced our now-beloved, seasonal Pumpkin Pie Mochi Ice Cream. But something was missing. What about mochi for the non-dairy crowd? What about creating a delicious frozen dessert that everyone can enjoy? We answered our own question(s) this year by creating...

Organic Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea

September 02, 2016 in Category: What's New

The use of turmeric [say: "TOO-mer-ick"] is on the rise. This rhizome (underground, rooted stem) is in the ginger family—and looks it, too, except for the striking orange color beneath its skin. Mix turmeric with cousin ginger and put it in in curries or in your grilled chicken rub, and you’ll get an invigorating, fragrant, (brightly colored) result. Mix turmeric with ginger and put it in hot water, and you’ll get the invigorating and fragrant Trader Joe’s Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea. Actually, it’s not tea...

Marinated Rack of Lamb with Herbs

August 31, 2016 in Category: What's New

On average, Americans consume less than a pound of lamb per year. That’s amazing when compared to the whopping 270 pounds of other red meats we eat annually. We’ve been racking our brains, trying to figure out how to stop such delicious meat from being so overlooked—and we think we’ve come up with a solution: Trader Joe’s Marinated Rack of Lamb with Herbs. The process of cooking lamb makes some people sheepish, since it’s a food with which most of us are unfamiliar. Worry not! The fears associated with preparation, seasoning, and cooking are put to rest with Trader Joe’s Rack of Lamb. It’s marinated with olive oil, garlic, sea salt and white pepper and topped with...

Tanzania Small Lot Coffee

August 29, 2016 in Category: What's New

Wake up! It’s that time again—that time when we offer a new, limited edition coffee at an unbeatable price. (Actually, “that time” can be just about any time at Trader Joe’s, because offering great products at great prices is a season-less, year-round endeavor, after all!) Now is the time for Trader Joe’s Tanzania Small Lot Coffee. Take your taste buds on a journey throughout Tanzania’s Southern Highlands, home of the finest coffee farms in this small African nation, which is located south of Kenya and north of Mozambique. These beans hail from southwest Tanzania’s Mbeya [say: “mm-BAY-ah”] region, where the landscape varies from...

Organic Vanilla Fudge Chip Ice Cream

August 26, 2016 in Category: What's New

Would you eat it in a cup? Would you eat it on a cone? Of course we’d eat it in a cup, or on a cone, or with a spoon, while on the phone, or on the moon. With apologies to the good doctor (Seuss, that is), we’re having difficulty thinking of any scenario in which we wouldn’t want to enjoy Trader Joe’s Organic Vanilla Fudge Chip Ice Cream. Sounds good, right? It really is that good. TJ’s Organic Vanilla Fudge Chip Ice Cream comes from...

Dried Kalamata Olives

August 24, 2016 in Category: What's New

Trader Joe’s Dried Kalamata Olives are not the canned black olives you used to put on your fingers as a child—as fun as those were. Nor are they the quintessential jarred olives you’ll find lining grocery store aisles across the country—including ours. What are they, then? They are dried, they are packaged in a vacuum-sealed bag, and they are delicious. Kalamata olives can only come from Greece—and that’s exactly where we found our Dried Kalamata Olives. If you were a fan of the...
