Organic Tahini

July 13, 2016 in What's New

You say tahina, I say tahini. Let’s call the whole thing off... and you gladly will for a taste of this product! Depending on dialect, tahini (or tahina) comes from the Arabic verb “to grind.” That is an accurate description of what’s packed into our jars of Trader Joe’s Organic Tahini; simply ground, hulled sesame seeds. This savory sauce is made in Greece with premium organic sesame seeds that are gently ground in a stone mill. One of the thankworthy things about this creation is the ingredients list: It isn’t a thousand-word essay with complicated chemistry, but one simple ingredient...

Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea

July 06, 2016 in What's New

A long, long time ago we started selling Dried Chile Spiced Mango. Something about the combination of sweet, juicy mango and the heat from dried red chiles made this product irresistible. And now, with Mango Season upon us, we transformed these flavors into a unique, new product: Trader Joe’s Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea. Our Organic Mango & Chile Black Tea is made of high-grade black tea, and then flavored with organic dried mango pieces and organic dried red chile. All three of the ingredients in this tea are grown and processed in...

Organic Edamame

July 04, 2016 in What's New

Way back in the year 1275, a Buddhist priest wrote a thank-you note to a parishioner for a gift left at the temple. What was this gift, you ask? Edamame! Edamame has been gaining popularity ever since this first mention of the food. If Trader Joe’s had been around in 13th century Japan, we’re pretty sure our fully cooked Organic Edamame would have been a hit. Edamame, which means “stem bean” in Japanese, is loved for its...

Organic Refried Pinto Beans

June 27, 2016 in What's New

There’s a reason beans are considered a musical fruit... because they go great with salsa (music)! Ba-dum-ching. But seriously, our Salsa Style Organic Refried Pinto Beans are no joke (in terms of how delicious they are). We’ve carried organic refried pinto beans before, and they were good; but not make-you-want-to-wiggle-your-hips-and-strut-your-stuff good. Clearly, we had to do something about that. What we did was develop these Salsa Style Organic Refried Pinto Beans that deliver phenomenal flavor and flair. You will want to...

Organic French Roast Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

May 06, 2016 in What's New

When we first introduced our TJ’s Cold Brew Concentrate in 2013, we knew it was going to be a hit, but how big of a hit... well, even we weren’t fully prepared. Since then, the bottled cold brew and cold brew concentrate trend has all but exploded, and ours is the best value on the market—by a long shot. So, we approached our supplier about introducing a second variety of Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate this year—this time an organic offering—and we were thrilled when they agreed. Like it’s predecessor...

Organic Chia Bar

April 15, 2016 in What's New

The name “chia” is said to have come from the Mayan word for strength. In fact, in ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures, chia seeds were prized (above gold, we’ve read) because of their energy-producing prowess. Runners and warriors ate a lot of them. Here’s where ancient history starts shaping modern snacking. Chia is, once again, a treasured source of sustenance, so we’ve crafted a chia-centric bar, perfect for on-the-run, everyday warriors (you know—parents, accountants, students, athletes, etc.). Each of our...

Organic Black Bean Rotini

April 01, 2016 in What's New

Here’s pasta with a twist. Actually, two twists. When you think pasta, you very likely think of semolina flour—or at the very least, wheat flour. If you’re a gluten free eater, your thoughts may go to rice or quinoa or corn. So it’s safe to say, if you’re thinking pasta, you’re thinking grain. It’s also safe to say that in creating Trader Joe’s Organic Black Bean Rotini, we went against the grain. This is pasta made with 100% black beans. No grains; just...

Organic Pitted Kalamon Olives

March 28, 2016 in What's New

Pits can be, well—the pits—especially in your and our favorite Greek olives, Kalamons (aka Kalamatas). Rather than grouse, we went to Greece, the historic Sparta region to be specific, to seek out the finest, Pitted Kalamon Olives. We found them. In the midst of what seemed to be an endless olive grove, our buyers happened upon a facility dedicated to pitting and packing the organic olives grown right around them. We were enchanted to find the deep purple...

That’s why we’re introducing Trader Joe’s Organic Shredded Green & Red Cabbage with Orange Carrots—your simple slaw starter kit. It’s a fresh mix of Green Cabbage, Red Cabbage, and Orange Carrots—all three certified Organic. They’re also triple washed, which means you can take...
