Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Gyoza

October 09, 2015 in What's New

Gee, we love gyoza. Wander through our freezer section and you’ll notice a collection deserving of commendations (if we do say so ourselves). There’s pork, chicken, Thai vegetable, green curry shrimp... 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...

September 20, 2015 in Radio Spots

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Pudding is one of our favorite comfort foods of Pumpkin Season. Unlike our frugal ancestors, we start with freshly baked pumpkin brioche bread.

It’s fully cooked, so prep is simple – defrost and serve, or warm in the oven to enhance the flavors even further...

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...

Portobello Mushroom Fries

August 31, 2015 in What's New

When you think of french fries, you undoubtedly think of France—even though they probably originated in Belgium. So when you think of Portobello Mushroom Fries, you obviously think of India, even though they probably originated in a restaurant kitchen somewhere in Los Angeles. Or Miami. Or Rome. Why India? Because India is where Trader Joe’s Portobello Mushroom Fries are created just for us. We’ve tried...

Radio - Burrata, Prosciutto & Arugula Flatbread

August 24, 2015 in Radio Spots

Pizza as we know it has been around since the tenth century. Before that, ancient Romans enjoyed panis focacius, or what we call focaccia. Today, at Trader Joe’s, you can enjoy panis flatbreadius...

Burrata, Prosciutto & Arugula Flatbread

August 14, 2015 in What's New

Nope. Nothing ordinary here. This pizza is so extra-ordinary, really, that we don’t even call it a pizza. Nah-ah. It’s a flatbread. And not any ordinary flatbread. This one hails from the small Italian town of Visso, deep in the mountains of the extraordinary Monte Sibillini National Park. Do you see the pattern of extraordinary-ness? And we haven’t even gotten to what’s on the flatbread! Let’s do that, post-haste. Trader Joe’s Burrata, Prosciutto & Arugula Flatbread begins with...

Black Bean & Corn Enchilada

August 03, 2015 in What's New

An enchilada is a Mexican food made of a corn tortilla wrapped around some kind of filling and accented with a sauce made from chilies and/or tomatoes. At once, this description is very specific and very vague. On the one mano, we’re told the exact nature of the wrapper and the main contents of the sauce. On the other mano, what goes inside remains wide open to interpretation. Over the years, our “interpretation” of the inner-enchilada has included...

Salted Caramel Bread Pudding

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...
