Wink, Wink — The Summer's Secret Is Out

July 20, 2015 in Product Stories

It may have taken a few years for its popularity to percolate, but it’s official—Cold Brew Coffee is the “it” drink of summer. What makes it so “hot”? Above all else—its cool temperature.  As its name puts forth, Cold Brew Coffee is never heated. As a result, the oils and acids that are commonly released with heat don’t pass through to the brew.

How do these laws relate to Trader Joe’s Fig Bites made with Turkish Figs? We’re glad you asked...

July 06, 2015 in What's New

You’re going to love our Salted Caramel Bread Pudding... though it may not be the “pudding” you’re expecting. It’s not that creamy custard that comes in a cup. No, we’re talking real pudding-pudding; a food as old as the Middle Ages, dating back to at least the 11th century. This is one of Trader Joe’s takes on the medieval classic. We thought that salted caramel in all of its trendy, gooey glory was the right profile to...

Formaggio Lagorai

July 03, 2015 in What's New

Imagine finding an antique wooden spoon with some writing on the back of it. Upon closer examination, you find this flat, wide spoon to have small drain holes. It’s a very old cream skimmer. Then, you realize that the message on the back is actually a recipe—step-by-step directions for making farmhouse cheese, exactly the way it was done by an anonymous dairy farmer who lived years ago in the Eastern Italian Alps. If you were to follow that recipe, you would end up with...
