September 25, 2017 in Category: What's New

Our product team is always unearthing the newfangled. Take our debuting Pumpkin & Roasted Pepitas Cookies: they combine the crisp, thin bite of a chip (think, potato); the rich, buttery depth of a cookie; and a favored flavor of fall: pumpkin. Inspired, delightful, rewarding – yes, Pumpkin & Roasted Pepitas Cookies are. Made for us by a west coast bakery sweet on snacking, Pumpkin & Roasted Pepitas Cookies showcase...

Vanilla Pumpkin Scented Candle

September 25, 2017 in Category: What's New

It’s no secret that, come October, we’re quite fond of adding pumpkin to just about anything. But, lest you assume that we only dare add it to foods and beverages, allow us to present a product that we implore you not to eat: Trader Joe’s Vanilla Pumpkin Scented Candle. Even though this Candle isn’t for eating, we still take great care to make it out of only the highest-quality ingredients. Each Candle is hand-poured and crafted exclusively for us...

Pumpkin Ginger Hold The Cone!

September 25, 2017 in Category: What's New

Earlier this year, we re-introduced our Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones. This reintroduction involved improvements in a number of areas. We improved the quality of the ice cream and the cones, we moved the production from Germany to the U.S. (which speeds up delivery time and keeps the cone crisper), and we increased the total weight in each package without increasing the cost. Manufacturing these Cones domestically allowed us to create some new flavor combinations, including this Pumpkin Ginger Hold the Cone!

Premium Peanut Butter Roundels

September 22, 2017 in Category: What's New

What’s a Roundel? Peanut butter and chocolate perfection, that’s what. No joke. No exaggeration. Of course, the word itself refers to a small disc, a circular shape, and one that’s often used in heraldry and coats of arms. Roundels are used in those contexts because their usage evokes strength, character, idealism… that’s what Trader Joe’s Premium Peanut Butter Roundels will do for you. You might think of Peanut Butter Roundels as a cross between...

Icelandic Style Nonfat Yogurt

September 20, 2017 in Category: What's New

Iceland is home to some of the most wondrous and awe-inspiring terrain we’ve ever seen. It’s also home to some of the most wondrous and awe-inspiring yogurt we’ve ever tasted. Icelanders call this yogurt skyr (pronounced “skeer”), and we call it delicious. It’s so delicious that, after a recent overseas adventure, our Product Innovator returned stateside bound and determined to develop Trader Joe’s very own skyr. Well, her determination paid off… in the form of Trader Joe’s Icelandic Style Plain and Strawberry Nonfat Yogurts...

Curried Carrot & Cashew Dip

September 18, 2017 in Category: What's New

Whether you’re vegetarian or not, we think you’re going to love Trader Joe’s Curried Carrot & Cashew Dip. To all you non-vegetarians... please trust us here; the non-vegetarians in our crowd exhibited similar skepticism, and were quickly convinced—all it took was a single taste. This is a mostly-smooth, creamy dip with just a bit of texture. It tastes like it has a creamy base – that’s the cashews – which, perhaps surprisingly, blend to a smooth and creamy...

Camel & Goat Milk Soaps

September 15, 2017 in Category: What's New

At Trader Joe’s, we really do travel the world in search of incredible products that present incredible values. On a recent food-finding trip to Turkey, one of our senior Product Innovators—always a fan of a product with a great story—came across two bars of soap so simple, so pure, and so interesting that she had to bring them back for us to try. We are pleased to report that it was love at first lather...

Calamansi Cooler

September 13, 2017 in Category: What's New

The Calamansi fruit is a natural cross of mandarin oranges and kumquats, native to Southeast Asia. On its own, the fruit is slightly sweet, and also sour—think of the zing of a sour orange, or a surprisingly sweet lime, and you’re on the right track. The fruit is incredibly popular in the Philippines, where it’s added to drinks, hot sauces, fish dishes…even beauty products. Our Product Developer felt this fruit deserved a stateside starring role in our stores, so they created the newest addition to our beverage lineup: Trader Joe’s Calamansi Cooler...

Cornbread Crisps

September 11, 2017 in Category: What's New

One of the defining (and popular) features of cornbread is its fluffy, cake-y softness. Like a pillow, but made with cornmeal. Trader Joe’s Cornbread Crisps don’t have this signature fluffiness. But that’s okay! As the name suggests, they’re crispy, like chips. This is not a quality you’re probably looking for in a pillow, but it is a great quality for a tasty, crunchy snack. It’s is a new thing for cornbread, but we’re pretty sure it’ll only take one bite for you to...
