Mum's The Word

May 08, 2017 in Category: Guides

The act of giving flowers reaches back through history, across cultures, oceans...even languages. In Victorian times, when outwardly expressing emotion was frowned upon, people used floriography (secret communication through flowers) to convey their deepest feelings, send layered, hidden messages to loved ones, or say things their societal norms wouldn’t otherwise allow...

Great news: we’ve given classic carrot juice some extra character! (You have had your fingers crossed for that, now haven’t you?) Turmeric has long been valued for its unique taste and versatility—we’ve seen it in everything from soups to lattes to cakes as of late—and its notable presence in our new Organic Carrot Turmeric Juice Blend creates a distinct, enjoyable beverage that is sure to have everyone talking...

Rosé Bouquet

May 08, 2017 in Category: Wine Insider

From the traditionalist’s perspective, the words “rosé” and “bouquet” don’t belong together. That’s because in wine-speak, bouquet refers specifically to those aromas that develop only during aging—characteristics of which youthful rosés have none. So, how can we justify such a verbal pairing? Aside from the obvious rhyming fun, we submit that similar to “a bunch of flowers, picked and tied together,” we’ve picked and tied together a bunch of wines... a Rosé Bouquet, if you will. And, just like a floral bouquet, these wines are...

Organic Coconut Aminos Seasoning Sauce

May 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

The versatility of the Cocos nucifera (the coconut tree) cannot be overstated. It produces an impressive number of coconut-based products with varied, but important, uses: coconut meat and coconut milk for cooking, coconut water for hydration, coconut sugar for baking… impressive, indeed. Another lesser known (but not for long) member of the coconut clan is the sap of the coconut blossom. When fermented, this sap forms a savory, amino-rich sauce with...

Birthday Cake Bar

May 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

No, dear readers, “Trader Joe’s Birthday Cake Bar” does not refer to a local gathering spot where folks congregate to celebrate the days of their birth. But, while you can’t head on down to the Birthday Cake Bar, you can eat it—and we promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s a masterpiece of confectionary convolution that you never knew you needed. Until now. And since we’re in the “now,” let’s talk about this “wow” of a...

Coffee Syrup

You’ve had milk. You’ve had coffee. But, have you had coffeemilk? If not, just imagine a frosty glass of 2% in front of you… and imagine someone hands you Trader Joe’s Coffee Syrup. You unscrew the cap that sits atop the narrow neck of the vintage-looking bottle and you begin to pour. The thick, dark-brown syrup flows into the milk—at first invisible—until you grab your spoon and stir. It looks like chocolate milk. It’s not. This is...

Organic Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Frosted Toaster Pastries

May 03, 2017 in Category: What's New

What makes Trader Joe’s Frosted Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Toaster Pastries so good? For one, they’re Organic, just like our other flavors (Organic Frosted Strawberry, Organic Frosted Cherry Pomegranate, and our seasonal Organic Frosted Pumpkin). This one fact makes them different from most other toaster pastries on the market. In addition to leaving out the unwanted “extras” that come with non-organic foods, we’ve also completely left out any artificial flavors, or artificial preservatives—as we do with all our products. For instance...

Organic Grapefruit & Ginger Splash

May 02, 2017 in Category: What's New

When creating Trader Joe’s Organic Grapefruit & Ginger Splash, we toyed with some other potential ingredients to include in the juice that started with the letter “G”: grapes, green tea, goat cheese, guava, garlic… Okay, so that’s not exactly how we developed this product, but we’re confident our choices of grapefruit and ginger have created one impressive drink. This is a pink juice blend with bright flavors to match. Organic, not-from-concentrate grapefruit juice contributes a punch of tartness—while grapefruits produce...
