Red Refresh Herbal Tea

August 16, 2017 in Category: What's New

Trader Joe’s Red Refresh Herbal Tea is a zingy, zesty blend of flowers, herbs, fruit, and even bark(!), that refreshes and rejuvenates, without caffeine. Inside each tea bag is a blend of hibiscus, rosehips, lemongrass, peppermint, orange peel, lemon verbena, wild cherry bark, and natural flavors. And speaking of flavor, Red Refresh lives up to its name with an invigorating fruitiness, uplifting herbaceous notes, and a tongue-tingling tanginess...

Gochujang Flavored Almonds

August 14, 2017 in Category: What's New

Hot sauce, formerly “a thing,” has become so many things to so many people. This is a good thing. One of the hottest (figuratively speaking) sauces in the food world right now is gochujang, a Korean fermented condiment made with red chilies. Perhaps surprisingly, we’re not here to tell you about hot sauce. Instead, we’re here to tell you about hot almonds. Trader Joe’s Gochujang Flavored Almonds...

Just Coconut Chunks

August 11, 2017 in Category: What's New

While coconut is abundant in tropical climes, most countries that cultivate copious coconut crops aren’t so big into freezing. We found a willing partner, though, in the Philippines, and though we quickly discovered they hadn’t made this product for anyone else, that just made us all the more eager to get it into our freezers. Trader Joe’s Just Coconut Chunks lives up to that name. Coconut is the sole ingredient in each bag...

Golden Oolong Tea

August 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

Trader Joe’s Golden Oolong Tea boasts a bright, golden flavor profile to match its bright, golden color—and its pleasantly floral finish leaves an almost sweet, slightly toasty taste on the tongue. Stronger than most green tea but more mild than black tea, oolong is known for being exceptionally drinkable. Part of its drinkability stems from how it’s processed: oolong tea is made from tea leaves that have only been partially...

Sparkling Waters!

Everyone could use some extra sparkle. Even the bubbliest person benefits from excess effervescence—and we’ve got just the thing to push fizzy to the fringes: Trader Joe’s Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters. Each bottle contains water drawn from carefully selected sources in the U.S., which is then infused with bubbles to create a crisp mouthfeel. But it’s not just the bubbles that make this water sparkle... It’s also the...

Cultured Coconut Milk

August 02, 2017 in Category: What's New

“What in the world is Cultured Coconut Milk?” would not be a strange or silly question to ask. You see, we can’t technically call it Coconut Yogurt because it’s made with coconut “milk”—which isn’t milk in the strict sense of the word. But, if you’re looking for an explanation of what Cultured Coconut Milk is, that’s pretty much it in a (coco)nut shell...

Chocolate Filled Crêpes

July 31, 2017 in Category: What's New

A long, long time ago (1895), in a land far, far away (Brittany, France), a delicious dessert worthy of dreams was created—the crêpe. Crêpes, with their thin, pancake-like dough, and sweet or savory fillings, are treats so extraordinary we’ve considered flying to France just to get our hands on one. There has to be another way to get great crêpes without international travel, our Buyers thought! After a few months, and a number of taste-tests, they found a way to bring Chocolate Filled Crêpes directly from France to Trader Joe’s freezer cases...

Chicken & Mushroom Pelmeni

July 26, 2017 in Category: What's New

Tortellini, pierogi, wonton, ravioli, gyoza…whatever you call it, the humble dumpling is a food phenomenon found across cultures that can be transformed by all manner of available fillings: winter squash, savory meats & cheeses, summer veggies…even sweet apples for dessert! In Russia, these dumplings are called pelmeni (a derivative of the word pelnyan, loosely translated as “bread ear” due to the dumpling’s ear-like shape). Historically, they were a convenient means of preserving meat and feeding a family over the course of a long winter...

Organic Purple Maize Flakes

July 24, 2017 in Category: What's New

An entirely new take on a breakfast classic, Organic Purple Maize Flakes channel the energy of the summer of love into a cereal that’s vibrant in both flavor and hue. If you're a traditional corn flake fan, you won't be disappointed by this groovy reboot. It's wonderfully crisp and oh-so-yummy, true to old-fashioned corn flake form—but with a visual twist. The pleasantly purple pigment of these Flakes can be attributed to...
