Is there room for one more? Always! Our new...

Molten Macarons - Chocolate or Salted Butterscotch

January 20, 2016 in What's New

It’s time we set the record straight: the word macaron is not an alternate spelling of macaroon. Macarons are French almond-meringue dessert sandwiches, whereas macaroons are sweet lumps of shredded coconut that have a toasted, golden crust. Both are delicious confections—but that’s where the similarities end. Having cleared that up, let us introduce you specifically to Trader Joe’s Molten Macarons. You might say these are really a combination of...

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...

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...

Radio - Frozen Whole Fillet Sockeye Salmon

December 23, 2015 in Radio Spots

In December, thoughts turn to good things from the North—and that has us thinking about Salmon—Sockeye Salmon. This is Matt Sloan of Trader Joe’s. Near the 60th Parallel North is Alaska’s Bristol Bay—home of the largest Sockeye Salmon fishery in the world. We made a special buy, just for this season.  We have boneless, skin-on, whole fillets of wild caught Sockeye Salmon from the icy waters of Bristol Bay. The fish is...

Rosemary Garlic Monkey Bread

November 06, 2015 in What's New

‘More fun than a barrel of monkeys’ is an old saying used to describe something that’s considerably amusing. Just imagine a small wooden vat, stacked with mischievous primates... FUN! Monkey Bread is so named for the way that balls of raw dough (usually coated with brown sugar and cinnamon) are stacked on top of each other in a deep pan and baked into a single loaf that is easily pulled apart by mischievous hands... also FUN! Trader Joe’s Rosemary Garlic Monkey Bread rolls with...

Seasoned Wild King Salmon on a Cedar Plank

November 04, 2015 in What's New

Trader Joe’s Seasoned King Salmon on a Cedar Plank is just what is says—a fillet of King salmon, delightfully seasoned and perfectly positioned on a plank of cedar (from a sustainably managed resource in Idaho), frozen and ready to cook. This King Salmon is wild-caught off the coast of Washington state using gillnets—a method that limits by-catch. Our supplier prepares the salmon, removing the bones and leaving the skin on one side. Then they season the fish with...

Rustic Apple Tarte

November 02, 2015 in What's New

We took Northern Spy Apples from the Niagara fruit-belt, and made a S-pie. Truthfully, it’s a Tarte; pastry, open-faced, filled with sweet and tart (tasting) apples, masterfully blended with almonds, cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar. Yes, it lacks sophistication—but not like an uncouth uncle. Traits so unattractive in a relative have the...

Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings

October 21, 2015 in What's New

Soup goes in a bowl or in a cup—unless, of course, you are a fan of Xiao Long Bao. Then, your soup goes in a dumpling. Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are a wonder to behold, both for their display of Chinese food innovation, and for their incredibly comforting flavor profile. This concept originates in the Jiangnan region of southeastern China, where Shanghai is situated. Xiao Long Bao are essentially soup dumplings, but instead of dumplings that go in the soup (though you can still certainly make this happen), the soup actually goes...
