Seasoning Salt

May 26, 2017 in Category: What's New

Humility is a virtue, but so is the truth — and the truth is that we have an impressive selection of salts, spices, and seasonings here at Trader Joe’s. From perennial favorites like our Himalayan Pink Salt Crystals and our 21 Seasoning Salute, to some of our newer, off-the-beaten path fare—like our Everything But the Bagel or Chile Lime Seasoning Blends—we really do have quite the array. But something has been missing all along...

Organic Dry Black Beans

February 01, 2017 in Category: What's New

Dry beans can seem intimidating if you haven’t cooked with them before. While they definitely require more time investment than your super-handy canned beans, they are still fairly simple to prepare. The bonus? Dry beans are a ‘blank-slate,’ allowing you ultimate control of the flavor. Trader Joe’s Organic Black Beans are ready for your own black bean recipe. Or, if you’re a newcomer to the bean party, you can follow the recipe on our package. Essentially, the beans get a quick...

Organic Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea

September 02, 2016 in Category: What's New

The use of turmeric [say: "TOO-mer-ick"] is on the rise. This rhizome (underground, rooted stem) is in the ginger family—and looks it, too, except for the striking orange color beneath its skin. Mix turmeric with cousin ginger and put it in in curries or in your grilled chicken rub, and you’ll get an invigorating, fragrant, (brightly colored) result. Mix turmeric with ginger and put it in hot water, and you’ll get the invigorating and fragrant Trader Joe’s Ginger Turmeric Herbal Tea. Actually, it’s not tea...

Tanzania Small Lot Coffee

August 29, 2016 in Category: What's New

Wake up! It’s that time again—that time when we offer a new, limited edition coffee at an unbeatable price. (Actually, “that time” can be just about any time at Trader Joe’s, because offering great products at great prices is a season-less, year-round endeavor, after all!) Now is the time for Trader Joe’s Tanzania Small Lot Coffee. Take your taste buds on a journey throughout Tanzania’s Southern Highlands, home of the finest coffee farms in this small African nation, which is located south of Kenya and north of Mozambique. These beans hail from southwest Tanzania’s Mbeya [say: “mm-BAY-ah”] region, where the landscape varies from...

Organic 100% Melon Juice

August 22, 2016 in Category: What's New

Summer is still in full-swing, and that means continued pool-hopping, hammock-lounging, BBQ-ing, and beverage chugging*—especially the chugging of our new Trader Joe’s Organic 100% Melon Juice. (*Sipping works, too. We’re flexible.) But as things will inevitably wind down into the fall, luckily, Trader Joe’s Organic 100% Melon Juice will not be going out of style—it’s an everyday item. Why confine melon-enjoyment to the summer months? Why put melons in a box when we can bottle them instead? Take a sip and you’ll see for yourself—this juice has a...

In-Shell Roasted Salted Peanuts

August 19, 2016 in Category: What's New

Take me out to the ball game! That’s easier sung than done, but still was accomplished by over 73 million Americans in 2015, alone. Presumably, it’s not just the game drawing so many of us in; it’s the food. And what snack is more synonymous with baseball than peanuts? For a while now, we’ve been chanting to our developers, “Buy us some peanuts...” Our song has not gone unanswered: Introducing Trader Joe’s In-Shell Roasted Salted Peanuts. These lovely legumes are...

Bollywood Popcorn

August 10, 2016 in Category: What's New

Based on the following garnered by our Popcorn in a Pickle, we’ve determined there’s an appetite for popcorn flavors beyond simple cheese and caramel. Boy, have we found the flavor to satiate your cravings. You might not know you’ve been craving Indian-spiced popcorn, but once you taste Trader Joe’s Bollywood Popcorn, you’ll wonder how you managed to make it this far without it. Bollywood Popcorn features...

Hot & Sweet Jalapeños

August 08, 2016 in Category: What's New

Most people know the famous tongue twister where Peter Piper picks a peck of pickled peppers. Well, thanks to a palatable new pepper offering, we’ve decided to reword it. “Trader Joe’s picked a peck of Hot & Sweet Jalapeños...” Sounds rather catchy, we think. The developers of our Hot & Sweet Jalapeños originally came upon a jar of candied jalapeños in Kansas City, Missouri. The concept piqued their interest but the peppers were just a little too sweet. So, for this product they concocted the perfect...

Hass Avocado Oil

July 18, 2016 in Category: What's New

From the world’s most avocado-rich region—Michoacán, Mexico—we’ve recently introduced Trader Joe’s Avocado Oil. Michoacán’s tropical climate, rich volcanic soil, and ample rainfall make it an ideal area for avocado cultivation. The differing elevations on the (inactive) volcanic slopes result in multiple microclimates. So, depending on location, trees bloom at different times during the year—which means there are always fresh avocados to be had! Avocados are also plentiful because...
