Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa

June 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

While rice is arguably the most widely consumed staple food for much of humanity, a small pseudocereal known as quinoa [keen-WAH] is making strides towards larger, global consumption. It started several thousand years ago when Incas on the high Andean plains domesticated the plant that bears this grain-like seed. It continues, today, with Trader Joe’s Organic Sprouted Tricolor Quinoa. Adding to our current quinoa selection—which includes Organic Quinoa, Organic Red Quinoa, and Organic Tricolor Quinoa—this new offering is unique in that it’s Sprouted. The Organic Quinoa is grown in...

Facial Cleansing Oil

June 28, 2017 in Category: What's New

Recognizing countenance importance, Trader Joe’s has developed a sophisticated Facial Cleansing Oil that takes the prospect of a clean face seriously. It’s made from a unique blend of natural botanicals, including coconut oil, argan oil, and abyssinian oil. Each of these oils has a specific function. Coconut oil is rich in phytosterols, which help break up and dissolve impurities. Argan oil is full of natural vitamin E to balance skin and provide...

Organic Aguas Frescas

June 26, 2017 in Category: What's New

If you’ve spent any time around Latin or Latin-American culture, chances are you’re familiar with the thirst-quenching delights of aguas frescas—and if you aren’t, well, you’re in for a treat. Aguas Frescas—which translates to fresh waters in English—are like juice, but lighter (60 calories per 8-ounce serving) and less sweet. Aguas Frescas invariably contain water and sugar, but they get their unique, complex flavor profiles from...

Salad Sideshow

June 26, 2017 in Category: Entertaining

While some think summer cooking is limited to grilling, and others think the words "summer" and "cooking" don't belong together at all, we beg to differ. Whether you're at the stove or simply tossing raw ingredients together, side dishes support the aforementioned activities and offer a fresh counterpoint of flavor to heavy grilled fare. And within this supporting cast of sides, perhaps none are more important than the refreshing summer salad...

Onion Salt

June 23, 2017 in Category: What's New

Allium is the fancy (read: scientific) name for the onion and its many relatives, including garlic, scallions, leeks, and chives. There are alliums that you won’t find in the kitchen—ones that add bright purple and pink flowers to spring gardens—but we tend to keep to culinary endeavors rather than horticultural ones. And with that in mind, we’ve created a new seasoning salt to celebrate these flavorful alliums: Trader Joe’s Onion Salt...

Organic Herbal Flavored Waters

June 21, 2017 in Category: What's New

It's a well-known fact that human beings cannot survive more than a few days without water. In fact, they (whoever “they” are) recommend drinking at least six 8-ounce glasses of water a day to maintain proper hydration. Perhaps you’re already hitting that target. Or even exceeding it. Kudos to you! But—and be honest with yourself here—couldn’t you stand to infuse some excitement into your hydration routine?

Puff Dogs

June 19, 2017 in Category: What's New

Everyone loves a hot dog. And with warm weather rolling in (think: BBQs, pool parties, etc.), we figured now is as good a time as any to officially declare Hot Dog Season. We carry some mighty fine dog options in our fresh and frozen sections as it is (Uncured Beef Hot Dogs, Uncured Chicken Hot Dogs, Turkey Corn Dogs, et al), but when we sampled Puff Dogs, we knew we had to make room in the lineup...

Treasure Hunt

“Treasure Hunt” could be a new reality TV show, or the next in a swashbuckling archaeology anthology. Trader Joe’s is where grocery shopping is like a treasure hunt. You might not know what to expect, but you should expect the unexpexted...

Food & Beverages

June 18, 2017 in Category: Radio Spots

We’ve noticed that a lot of places selling groceries also sell a bunch of other stuff. Like lawn furniture, patio umbrellas, and T-shirts. We’re focused on what we do best – running grocery stores selling food and beverages...
