Pumpkin Ginger Hold The Cone!

October 08, 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!

Extra Hot Habanero Ghost Pepper Salsa

October 06, 2017 in Category: What's New

A hyperbole is a figure of speech where exaggeration is used for dramatic effect, like “I ate a million chips today” or “this work day will never end.” When we call our new Extra Hot Habanero Ghost Pepper Salsa extra hot, though, we mean it. In this case, there is no hyperbole or exaggeration. It is hot—and also delicious...

Premium Peanut Butter Roundels

October 05, 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 23, 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...
