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...

Organic Ranch Dressing

February 01, 2016 in What's New

Ranch Dressing. It’s a staple in so many American homes. And yet, the big national brands of this cultural touchstone of American cuisine are loaded with preservatives and artificials. What do these preservatives and artificials accomplish for the big national brands? One, they lower costs—cheaper ingredients equal lower finished cost for the manufacturer. Two, they allow the national brands to maintain a lower pH in their Ranch, which allows the buttermilk flavor to really pop, and ultimately, gives the dressing its...

Organic Spicy Spinach Blend

December 25, 2015 in What's New

Baby spinach is a perennial stalwart of the produce section. But being a stalwart can sometimes come across as being stodgy (we’re not calling baby spinach stodgy, but we’ve heard the talk, and we’re pragmatists). So we’ve found some friends for our old standby, and we’ve put them all together in a single bag. Trader Joe’s Organic Spicy Spinach Blend is a mix of...

Our new Organic Cream Top Plain Whole Milk Yogurt is good yogurt that comes from good milk—which makes it great! But there’s more.
