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...

Gee, we love gyoza. Wander through our freezer section and you’ll notice a collection deserving of commendations (if we do say so ourselves).

We are anything but fatigued with potsticker possibilities, and we completely fell for this uniquely fall profile: Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza. Our Gyoza bring a rare autumn...

Salmon & Vegetable Croquettes

September 16, 2015 in What's New

Croquet and croquette are delightful almost homonyms. One is that game with wooden mallets and balls and hoops played on the lawn. The other simply requires an appetite and a fork. While we’re definitely good for a game or two, let’s talk about the less complicated, tastier one. Come to think of it, you might not even need the fork. Trader Joe’s Salmon Croquettes are carefully packed and pressed into deliciously shareable hors d’oeuvres, so just your appetite might suffice. Made in Thailand, this product includes components of...

Freestone Peach Slices or Nectarine Slices*

September 11, 2015 in What's New

Given a choice, fresh is always better than frozen. (Except for popsicles. Fresh popsicles always end up a little too juicy.) Frozen treats aside, who wouldn’t rather enjoy a ripe piece of fresh-picked fruit than one that’s had all its moisture turned to ice? Unfortunately, a little thing called “seasons” gets in the way. What if we told you, you could have your frozen peaches and enjoy them too? It’s true! This small miracle comes in two forms: Trader Joe’s Freestone Peach Slices, and Trader Joe's Nectarine Slices. The same farmers who provide our famous four-pound boxes of Peaches or Nectarines in the peak-season, now provide that same high quality...
