Creamy or Crunchy No Stir Peanut Butter Spreads

February 24, 2016 in What's New

Full disclosure: we sell a lot of peanut butter. Probably enough peanut butter to fill football stadia across the country. And we sell a variety—creamy, crunchy, organic, conventional, with salt, without salt... you get the idea. One option we haven’t had is a no-stir variety. Our peanut butters have always been minimalist: peanuts and salt (or not), without anything added. Because of this, they all have oils that separate from the actual peanut butter, and require stirring to...

Tonic Water with Natural Lime Flavor

February 22, 2016 in What's New

A tonic for what ails you? Maybe not. A tonic for your gin? Most definitely. Trader Joe’s Tonic Water with Natural Lime Flavor is here, and we’ve done our best to improve on this classic cocktail mixer. When British colonists started settling India in the mid-eighteenth century, enthusiasm for the new country they acquired was tempered by a new disease that came with it: Malaria.

Now, we’re adding to our pickled deli items with Trader Joe’s Spicy Pickled Vegetables. It’s our own version of Jalapeños en Escabeche... with a twist. Jalapeños en Escabeche is traditionally a mix of pickled peppers, carrots, and onions. We’ve given this Mexican condiment a twist, adding...

Mini Butterscotch Shortbread Buttons

January 22, 2016 in What's New

These buttery, crunchy shortbread cookies hail from Scotland, where modern-day shortbread is said to have originated, perhaps as long ago as the 12th century. Our supplier is a family-owned company that’s been making its signature shortbread cookies for more than 100 years. Given their history, they tend to make a very traditional shortbread cookie. Nothing wrong with that. But we like to mix things up, and when we discussed this possibility with them, we found out that they, too, like to...

Scandinavian Swimmers

January 06, 2016 in What's New

Trader Joe’s Scandinavian Swimmers are soft, chewy candies, in the shape of sea creatures, bursting with fruity flavors, and colored with spirulina and fruit & vegetable extracts (pumpkin, carrot, black carrot, black currant, and apple). The creatures within the aquatically-themed pouch are some you might encounter in the ocean, or perhaps an aquarium. There’s a blue dolphin (huckleberry flavored), a red lobster (berry flavored), a sea horse (mango peach flavored)...
