Organic Dry Black Beans

February 01, 2017 in Category: What's New

Dry beans can seem intimidating if you haven’t cooked with them before. While they definitely require more time investment than your super-handy canned beans, they are still fairly simple to prepare. The bonus? Dry beans are a ‘blank-slate,’ allowing you ultimate control of the flavor. Trader Joe’s Organic Black Beans are ready for your own black bean recipe. Or, if you’re a newcomer to the bean party, you can follow the recipe on our package. Essentially, the beans get a quick...

Tulip Bulbs

January 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

With their straight stems, limited leaves, and showy blooms, tulips are one of the world’s favorite flowers. And because tulips are perennials that grow from bulbs, they are well suited for botanical magic. What kind of botanical magic, you ask? Behold, Trader Joe’s Tulip Bulbs. These are specially selected, long-life Tulips; imported from Holland, and planted in a hydroponic glass vase, which allows you to watch them grow. Through the clear vase, you can plainly see the dark-colored bulbs with their many strands of pale roots that shoot down under the water like delicate...

Great Values the Trader Joe's Way

January 28, 2017 in Category: Radio Spots

If price is what you pay, and value is what you get—it’s important to have confidence that you’re getting a good deal.  But talk is cheap.

Whenever you walk into a Trader Joe’s, you’ll find both grocery basics and exciting new products that tempt your palate, but won’t challenge your wallet.  We don’t carry soup to nuts, but we do carry amazing soup—and super nuts. 

Heart of Palm Medallions

January 27, 2017 in Category: What's New

We heart [read: "love"] novel versions of food items, but whenever we present a food in a new and interesting way, we don’t just do it for novelty’s sake. There’s always a value proposition linked with the specific traits of that product. Trader Joe’s Heart of Palm Medallions are no different. Generally, hearts of palm are harvested from the inner core of certain palm trees, usually from the youngest portion of plant shoots. This typically yields smallish cylindrical segments that naturally break apart into concentric pieces when chopped. In the case of Trader Joe’s Heart of Palm Medallions...

Golden Spiced Milk Chocolate Bar

January 25, 2017 in Category: What's New

If you’ve been a fan of Trader Joe’s chocolates, you know we’ve emphasized “dark” chocolates for several years. We’re progressively exploring more milk chocolate options—sweeter profiles (as opposed to bittersweet) well suited for the addition of innovative ingredients. Trader Joe’s Golden Spiced Milk Chocolate Bar is a golden example. Our chocolatier out of Chicago is known for chocolates that display craftsmanship and innovation. They also believe chocolates can function as “a medium for storytelling.” This new candy bar weaves the tale of...

Organic Kabocha Squash

January 23, 2017 in Category: What's New

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Season has gone, for now. While some may be glad for the pumpkin pause, for others, the end of our annual pumpkin-product parade results in a serious pumpkin-shaped void. If you’re having a hard time waiting for next fall, good news—we’re now selling Trader Joe’s Organic Kabocha Squash. The Kabocha squash (aka Japanese pumpkin) was introduced into Japanese cuisine from Cambodia in the mid-sixteenth century. Since then, this squash has become...
