Fior Delle Alpi

March 14, 2017 in Category: What's New

The Swiss Alps are famous for crisp mountain air, high peaks, and skiing. Each year, people from around the world flock to the Alps for world-class winter skiing. From these same Swiss Alps comes Trader Joe’s Fior Delle Alpi cheese—and yes, it’s as excellent as the skiing! Fior Delle Alpi translates to “Flower of the Alps,” a name fitting for our March spotlight cheese. Hidden in a black rind, this raw milk cheese is made by hand at a small mountain dairy. The cows are free to roam and graze on mountainsides covered in grasses and wild herbs, and these herbs are vital to the intense...

Irish Bangers

March 03, 2017 in Category: What's New

When St. Patrick’s Day rolls around each year, we all pull out our green Hawaiian shirts and celebrate with the holiday’s traditional foods: corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, Irish soda bread, shepherd’s pie, stouts... And sausage. This staple of Irish cuisine is a must around March 17th, and Trader Joe’s Irish Bangers are perfect for the job. Though Irish Bangers aren’t actually called “bangers” by the Irish, the rest of the world has adopted...

Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale

February 17, 2017 in Category: What's New

The third president of the United States is well known for writing The Declaration of Independence, making the Louisiana Purchase, helping to found religious freedom, and more. We believe, however, that there is one important accomplishment for which Thomas Jefferson has not yet been given enough credit, namely—the popularizing of mac and cheese in America. Trader Joe’s has already been following Jefferson’s lead with seven or so versions of our own macaroni and cheese—and counting! In the continuing spirit of American innovation, here’s our latest: Trader Joe’s Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale...

Oh My Guava!

November 23, 2016 in Category: What's New

OMG! is a popular exclamation in our culture. (By “culture,” we mean Trader Joe’s, and by “OMG” we mean, of course, Oh My Guava! tropical fruit and black tea beverage.) For us, it’s not just an exclamation—it’s a drink with an attractive and unique flavor profile. To make it, we gathered our guava purée from Colombia in South America. It’s fruit purée that’s certified organic and kosher by the proper authorities. It’s also certified DEE-licious, by us. The purée is blended with...

Avocado's Number Guacamole to Go

November 18, 2016 in Category: What's New

There have probably been several times throughout your life when you think, “Wow, I really wish I had a small packet of guacamole with me right now.” And we don’t blame you. In recent years, guacamole has become one of the most in-demand condiments. Given its popularity, we thought it time to make those small, portable packets a reality with Trader José’s Avocado’s Number Guacamole to Go. Made in Coahuila, Mexico, this is the same Guacamole you’ll find in our...

Pumpkin Vinaigrette

November 07, 2016 in Category: What's New

While we at Trader Joe’s firmly believe a salad is greater than the sum of its parts, we also know the dressing component has a lot to do with a salad’s overall success at the table. Extra virgin olive oil is a must for a smooth mouthfeel. Vinegar adds a bracing kick of flavor and helps cut through the bitterness of salad greens. Finally, seasonings like salt, pepper and mustard provide point of view and personality. Our Pumpkin Vinaigrette meets all of these requirements, but with a seasonal twist. Intrigued? Each bottle of Pumpkin Vinaigrette contains 17% rich pumpkin...

Cold Pressed Pumpkin Harvest Juice

October 26, 2016 in Category: What's New

Think of this as the convergence of two of our favorite things—pumpkin and cold pressed juice. It was bound to happen, and we can’t imagine a more delicious combination of crazes than what you’ll find in a bottle of Trader Joe’s Cold Pressed Pumpkin Harvest Juice. We contemplated a simple cold pressed pumpkin juice, but when we tasted it, it lacked the vibrant flavors of the harvest season. It needed more. So we went back to the garden and discovered a rainbow of companions to brighten and enliven the pumpkin. Every bottle of Pumpkin Harvest Juice contains...

All Natural Ground Chicken

October 21, 2016 in Category: What's New

Ground beef is so passé. Okay, maybe not so passé—cheeseburgers will never go out of style. But ground beef isn’t the only player now, at least on the shelves of Trader Joe’s. We also sell Ground Turkey, and now we’re adding yet another choice to our offerings: All Natural Ground Chicken. Our All Natural Ground Chicken offers an excellent and exciting new option when shopping for ground meat—yes, we think Ground Chicken is exciting. Especially ours, which antibiotic free and from chickens fed all-vegetarian diets. The meat, a blend of white and dark meat, is 92% lean and 8% fat, giving it a mild flavor and moist...

Whole Milk Vanilla or Mango Kefir

October 17, 2016 in Category: What's New

Kefir is yogurt’s drinkable, slightly fizzy cousin with an ancient, storied origin. Legend says that the prophet Mohammad first gifted the rare Kefir “grains” required to make this drink to the people of the Caucasus region. Thankfully, it was eventually shared with the Russian people. The world’s been Kefir-keen ever since! Something that should make the world even more Kefir-keen? Trader Joe’s Whole Milk Kefirs, of course. We already offer a Low Fat Blueberry Kefir and a Low Fat Plain Kefir, but our newest Kefirs stand out for their Whole Milk fat content, and for their flavors—Vanilla or Mango. Whole milk provides a...
