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...Read More
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...Read More
Ever have the impulse to spread your bacon? Perhaps you’ve never even had the thought, given that crispy strips of fried pork belly are inherently unamenable to spreading.

Now, listen here: It’s time to forget what you’ve learned of food inflexibility and broken bacon dreams. Trader Joe’s has your bacon—and we’re ready to jam! Our Uncured Bacon Jam is...Read More
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...Read More
Over the last couple years, we’ve introduced a number of Cold Pressed Juices, including Green, Red, Yellow, and Watermelon. This year, we’re adding a unique and delicious flavor to the line-up—one we haven’t seen anywhere else. Meet Trader Joe’s Cold Pressed Cantaloupe Juice. Each 15.2-ounce, 140-calorie bottle contains only cantaloupe juice and lime juice. (That’s one-and-a-half pounds of cantaloupe and one-third of a lime to be precise.) We “juice” it in a slow hydraulic press for maximum liquid extraction. Once bottled, our juice goes through a...Read More
We’ve heard it proclaimed, “Trader Joe’s Pecan Praline Granola is the best-tasting granola ever.” Generally, we don’t like to be such braggarts, but we’re tooting this horn to make a point. The fact is, we believe there is only one thing to do with a really high bar—raise it. So, when our Pecan Praline Granola supplier was no longer able to make this product for us, we didn’t look for someone to replace it. We looked for someone to improve it. Our enhanced Pecan Praline Granola is still...Read More

If you’ve spent any time in Los Angeles, you are most likely familiar with the fruit cart vendors that colorfully dot the urban landscape. Serving up sliced, tropical fruit smothered in chili powder, salt, and lime juice, these beloved vendors are a must-visit for many Angelinos on a hot, sunny day—and there are many of those days in Los Angeles. Taking our cues from this traditional Mexican-American treat—and from the fruit-based slaws you might see in a restaurant served alongside some grilled fish—we give you...
