Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

September 30, 2015 in What's New

We used to carry Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Almonds. The tag line on the bag read, “an irresistible snack.” These nuts were, in fact, quite irresistible to many people! But all along, we never felt quite settled on the flavor profile. The ratio of crunchy coating-to-almonds seemed a little off.

In Spanish, salsa simply means “sauce,” but English speakers have adopted the term to reference a spicy, Mexican-style condiment used for dipping. Maybe that’s the kind of salsa you’re thinking of when you hear about our Fall Harvest Salsa—you’re probably thinking: tomatoes, onions, jalapeños; diced and mixed, ready for chip dipping. You’d only be partly right! Take your North American idea of salsa and move it north and east, to New England. Now flip the...

Croquet and croquette are delightful almost homonyms. One is that game with wooden mallets and balls and hoops played on the lawn. The other simply requires an appetite and a fork. While we’re definitely good for a game or two, let’s talk about the less complicated, tastier one. Come to think of it, you might not even need the fork. Trader Joe’s Salmon Croquettes are carefully packed and pressed into deliciously shareable hors d’oeuvres, so just your appetite might suffice. Made in Thailand, this product includes components of...
