Oatmeal Cups

March 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

We’ve recently launched two new Oatmeals, both of which are unique and tasty in flavor, and convenient and easy in presentation. Each Oatmeal starts with hearty rolled oats, of course! In the case of our new Tart Cherry, Chia & Pumpkin Seed Oatmeal, these oats are nutritionally boosted with chia seeds. Tantalizingly tart dried cherries partner up with nutty, crunchy pumpkin seeds to complete this heart-warming profile. One serving (the whole cup) provides 6 grams of fiber and 9 grams of protein, as well as 20% of your recommended daily intake of...

Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar

March 06, 2017 in Category: What's New

Right about mid-March every year, green is on everyone’s minds. This color emphasis owes its origins to St. Patrick’s Day, whose namesake had a fondness for verdant, three-leaved shamrocks. The question arose among our candy developers: If we created a chocolate bar as an ode to green, what exactly would that look like? Their answer is Trader Joe’s Marbled Mint Crunch Chocolate Bar. Crafted in Ireland (perfect!), this is a Chocolate Bar made from a blend of white and dark chocolates, with the addition of natural green...

Irish Bangers

March 03, 2017 in Category: What's New

When St. Patrick’s Day rolls around each year, we all pull out our green Hawaiian shirts and celebrate with the holiday’s traditional foods: corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, Irish soda bread, shepherd’s pie, stouts... And sausage. This staple of Irish cuisine is a must around March 17th, and Trader Joe’s Irish Bangers are perfect for the job. Though Irish Bangers aren’t actually called “bangers” by the Irish, the rest of the world has adopted...

Organic King Coconut Water

February 27, 2017 in Category: What's New

Sri Lanka is known in some circles as the “capital of coconuts,” as its residents purportedly boast the highest consumption of coconut in the world. In addition to drinking, the coconut is used for cooking, fiber production… even roofing! The most prized variety on the island is the King coconut, known for its oil content and clean, crisp taste. It is this specific variety that is used to fill each container of Trader Joe’s Organic King Coconut Water. Organically grown without the use of...

Organic Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars

February 24, 2017 in Category: What's New

What’s in a name? When you’re talking about Trader Joe’s Organic Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bars, the answer is everything. This is our homage to the classic granola bar, with attributes that really up the ante—from a snacking perspective. Whole grain rolled oats and crisp brown rice are held together by tapioca syrup, agave syrup and honey, creating a delightfully toothsome, slightly sweet granola bar base. Each bar is dotted throughout with semi-sweet chocolate chips, so each bite has a generous amount of classic chocolate chip flavor, rounded out with a touch of unsweetened...

Organic Toasted Coconut Granola

“Gotta love crab. In the nick of time, too. I couldn’t take much more of those coconuts…”

~ Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks in Castaway)

Chuck Noland is the exception. Unless you remain stranded on a tropical island, it is probably more likely that you can’t get enough coconut. (And if you’re reading this, we’re assuming you’ve been rescued.) Landlubbers, like yourself, are typically fond of Trader Joe’s because of our comforting cache of coconut products that help fill your coconut fix. Our newest coconut product comes in the form of...

Chocolate Almond Butter Tarte

February 20, 2017 in Category: What's New

When you think “French tarte,” you might first think fruit fillings: apples (of course!), berries, lemon… Certainly, there are French tartes filled with chocolate; but we’ve got one you’ve likely never seen (or tasted) before—in France, or anywhere else. Trader Joe’s Chocolate Almond Butter Tarte was initially conceived as a Chocolate and Salted Caramel Tarte. On second thought, we decided this new dessert needed a different, more decadent twist. That twist is almond butter. We replaced what would’ve been the caramel layer with a creamy, smooth spread made from...

Biscuits (and Gravy).

We've long been fans of the ease of bread from a tube. We know, doesn't sound very "foodie" of us. But in fact, when time is short and appetites are long, the convenience of fresh-from-the-oven bread you can make and bake in just a few minutes is the essence of epicurean (and impossible to resist!).

Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale

February 17, 2017 in Category: What's New

The third president of the United States is well known for writing The Declaration of Independence, making the Louisiana Purchase, helping to found religious freedom, and more. We believe, however, that there is one important accomplishment for which Thomas Jefferson has not yet been given enough credit, namely—the popularizing of mac and cheese in America. Trader Joe’s has already been following Jefferson’s lead with seven or so versions of our own macaroni and cheese—and counting! In the continuing spirit of American innovation, here’s our latest: Trader Joe’s Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale...
