Organic Toasted Coconut Granola

February 22, 2017 in Category: What's New

“Gotta love crab. In the nick of time, too. I couldn’t take much more of those coconuts…”

~ Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks in Castaway)

Chuck Noland is the exception. Unless you remain stranded on a tropical island, it is probably more likely that you can’t get enough coconut. (And if you’re reading this, we’re assuming you’ve been rescued.) Landlubbers, like yourself, are typically fond of Trader Joe’s because of our comforting cache of coconut products that help fill your coconut fix. Our newest coconut product comes in the form of...

It’s no secret that we love cheese here at Trader Joe’s—stroll on over to our cheese case and you’ll see what we mean. And what is there not to love? Cheese just makes everything better. (See: burgers, baked potatoes, pasta, crackers, casseroles, omelets, sandwiches, vegetables... ad infinitum.) So why, then, should you not be able to enjoy cheese anytime, anywhere? That’s a trick question, because you should be able to enjoy cheese anytime, anywhere. Now, with a pouch of Trader Giotto’s Oven-Baked Cheese Bites in hand, you can...

Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips

January 09, 2017 in Category: What's New

You might say that we’re tortilla chip aficionados. We are huge fans of these corn-based comestibles, and we’re in constant pursuit of the best possible tortilla chips the world has to offer. In fact, we are so dedicated to this pursuit that we decided to revamp our existing Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips because we had a feeling they could be even better. And if you’ll allow us to toot our own horn for a moment, our new Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips really hit the mark. We start with fresh, white corn tortillas...

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...

Gluten Free Rolled Oats

October 06, 2016 in Category: What's New

For some people, gluten-free is a fad. For others, it’s a way of trying to eat a little more healthfully. For people with celiac disease – a digestive and autoimmune disorder that causes damage to the small intestine when gluten-containing foods are eaten – gluten-free is an absolute necessity. Gluten is a naturally occurring component in many grains – wheat, barley and rye among them. In recent years...

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...
