Convivial Cookie Collection

January 13, 2016 in What's New

Our European Cookie Collection (featured only during the holidays) is popular. With twelve varieties and more than 100 cookies, it’s well suited for a season when large gatherings of family and friends are frequent. But it’s a little much for daily, non-holiday consumption. Sticking with the cookie combination concept, we thought we should create a smaller version more fitting for everyday cookie eating... so we did! Trader Joe’s Convivial Cookie Collection is an...

Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros

January 11, 2016 in What's New

For a number of years, we searched for a source to make churros for us. We knew we wanted them frozen so you could take them out at home and heat them up whenever the mood struck. We also knew there were a good number of suppliers who already made churros. Unfortunately, not a single one of those suppliers made churros without a bunch of artificial junk and preservatives—and we’re not at all fond of that stuff. But we...

Oak Wood Cold Smoked English Cheddar

January 08, 2016 in What's New

What about the aroma of a smoky cheese? The feeling is the same—only you get to eat it, too. That’s why we’re pleased to introduce our Spotlight Cheese of the Month, Trader Joe’s Oak Wood Cold Smoked English Cheddar. Our cheese-maker is...

Tarte à l'Oignon (Alsatian Style Onion Tart)

January 04, 2016 in What's New

This Alsatian onion tart is a new addition to our freezers that’s worthy of your attention. It’s similar in style to other tarts we have in our stores, but without any custard. Rich and buttery, it has a unique crust and topping you might expect to find in a fabulous continental restaurant... not in the freezer case of a grocery store! Trader Jacques Tarte à l’Oignon begins with true...

Bruschette Tradizionale Oven Baked Toasts

December 30, 2015 in What's New

Bruschette (say: broo-SKEH-ta) is a traditional Italian meal starter that involves small slices of toasted or baked bread, topped with a variety of vegetables, deli meats, and herbs. Essential to this snack is the bread. It must be small. It must be crisp. And it should be simple. Trader Giotto’s Bruschette Tradizionale Oven Baked Toasts are all of these things—the perfect blank canvas for whatever fresh toppings the Italian-you craves. These come from...

Build A Crostini-Rootini Bar

December 27, 2015 in Entertaining

At the peak of entertaining season, when the edibles seem endless, distinguish your fête fare by engaging your eaters in a build-it-yourself Crostini-Rootini Bar. Crostino is Italian for “little crust” and the eponymous appetizer has traditionally been crafted of thin slices of toasted or grilled bread that can be dressed with an assortment of toppings (spreads, toppings, garnishes). While simple in concept – a base with toppings – the possibilities for expressing culinary gumption are glorious!

Organic Spicy Spinach Blend

December 25, 2015 in What's New

Baby spinach is a perennial stalwart of the produce section. But being a stalwart can sometimes come across as being stodgy (we’re not calling baby spinach stodgy, but we’ve heard the talk, and we’re pragmatists). So we’ve found some friends for our old standby, and we’ve put them all together in a single bag. Trader Joe’s Organic Spicy Spinach Blend is a mix of...
