Organic Roasted Teriyaki Seaweed Snack (6-pack)

December 02, 2016 in Category: What's New

Seaweed grows in the ocean—not in fields on land—so the idea of “organic” seaweed may seem a little strange. What, then, makes Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Teriyaki Seaweed Snack, “organic”? In farming conventional seaweed, farmers typically use food-grade acid to eliminate the presence of unwanted species growing on the underwater crop. Instead of using these chemicals, the South Korean farmers who grow the seaweed for our Organic Seaweed Snack use two natural methods to control pests. Seaweed is grown on ropes that are...

Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars

November 25, 2016 in Category: What's New

If a bear stumbles upon a gluten free gingerbread snack in the woods, and there’s no one around to witness the stumbling, did it really happen? We think you should ask the bear who adorns the package of Trader Joe’s Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars. Chances are, this bear will bear witness to the bear who is the bearer of these Bars that have just barely landed on our shelves. Bear in mind, the bear on the box may be biased; this appears to be a bear of great bearing, also bearing a couple of the aforementioned Bars. With all the incredibly sweet, high-impact treats on store shelves this time of year, Trader Joe’s Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars immediately stand out because of their...

Nutty Seedy Fruity Bar

November 11, 2016 in Category: What's New

Here at Trader Joe’s, we like adjectives. They help us describe the delicious, exciting, adventurous, international, craving-inducing, palatable, ever-changing and intriguing products we carry, and we’re sure you can never use too many. Take our new Nutty Seedy Fruity Bar, for instance. Just the right amount of adjectives to perfectly, thoroughly relate what this bar is all about. As per the name, nutty, seedy, and fruity ingredients make up our Nutty Seedy Fruity Bar. In the “nutty” category, there are...

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Baking Mix

October 28, 2016 in Category: What's New

All pumpkin, all the time. That’s our motto around here—at least during pumpkin season. We're so goo-goo for pumpkin, we've got two Pumpkin Baking Mixes—our conventional version, and this one for our gluten sensitive friends. Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Baking Mix is easy to make (add egg, oil & water, mix, and bake), and even easier to eat. When we tasted it, what impressed us most about this Mix was that if we hadn’t known it was gluten free, we wouldn’t have known it was gluten free. Our supplier is expert at mixing...

Vegan Spread & Dressing

October 05, 2016 in Category: What's New

Mayonnaise—it's a thick, creamy sauce consisting of egg yolks emulsified with oil and seasoned with salt, pepper, vinegar, and (usually) mustard. Without it, potato salads would just be boiled potatoes, sandwich bread would be crumbly and dry, and creamy salad dressing wouldn’t be... well, creamy. Whether it’s for dietary limitations or fear of egg yolks, however, many people are forced to go without this smooth spread. A sad thought, indeed. In an attempt to take back potato salad and make sandwiches sing for all, we’ve developed a...

Gluten Free Pizza Crusts

September 30, 2016 in Category: What's New

Gluten free breads, gluten free pretzels, gluten free baked goods, gluten free cereal, gluten free beer... We have it all. But we realized there was one large, circular hole in our gluten free offerings, roughly the size of a pizza crust. And Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pizza Crusts seems to fill that quite nicely. We’ve sold Organic Pizza Crust in our freezers for some time now. Many of you have probably enjoyed adorning these crusts with your favorite sauces, cheeses and toppings. With the rise of gluten intolerance, it’s time we made pizza making easy for all those wishing to make pizza. Our supplier uses a proprietary mixture of...

Grainless Granola

September 27, 2016 in Category: What's New

Grainless Granola? Have you lost your gluten, Trader Joe? Well, in a way, yes. But first, some history… The story begins with one Sylvester Graham, who advocated a vegetarian diet including crackers he created—Graham Crackers. Later, in the mid-19th century, Dr. James Jackson baked sheets of Graham flour and broke them into pieces, calling the result “granula.” A decade went by before a certain Dr. Kellogg from Battle Creek Michigan crafted a breakfast food of baked, ground up whole grains. He also called his...

Organic Grass-Fed Uncured Beef Hot Dogs

September 07, 2016 in Category: What's New

Since we always take great care in choosing the ingredients that go into our products, it’s safe to assume that Trader Joe’s hot dogs are going to be better than the average tube-shaped meat. We wholeheartedly believe this to be the case. Now, we’re adding Trader Joe’s Organic Grass-Fed Uncured Beef Hot Dogs to our existing line up of dogs, and the attributes of these puppies are sure to elevate franks to the next level. These Beef Hot Dogs are Uncured, meaning they...

PB & J Bar

August 12, 2016 in Category: What's New

It is estimated that the average American will eat 2,984 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in their lifetime (give or take a few hundred). The number 2,984 may seem monotonously mountainous, but it must be a dynamic duo if people are willing to do it again and again (repeat again 2,982 times). We thought we would shake things up a bit, as we always do, and in the best way since peanut butter and jelly! How, you ask? With the Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars, of course. Trader Joe’s PB & J Bars are prepared with a lot of...
