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...

Meal Prep With Pep

September 08, 2017 in Category: Guides

Meal Prep. Short for “meal preparation.” It’s what kitchens were designed to accomplish, although most people will say kitchens were designed to provide a space for people to gather during parties. When you aren’t hosting parties, consider using your kitchen to prepare meals. And we’re not talking just one meal. You can start small, by preparing meals for the week ahead. Eventually, you might even want to work your way up to meal prepping that’ll carry you through 2022. But that would involve upgrading to an industrial-type kitchen, complete with futuristic food-saving methods, not to mention a lot of groceries…

Organic Reduced Sugar Cherry Preserves

September 08, 2017 in Category: What's New

Many moons ago (we’re being dramatic—it wasn’t that many moons ago), we carried conventional Cherry Preserves in our grocery section. We discontinued them due to slow sales (our customers vote with their dollars, after all), but we’ve been fielding requests for a replacement ever since. But we couldn’t just bring in any cherry preserves. In the spirit of Kaizen, we knew we could improve them, and improve them we did. Introducing...

Seed & Bean Medley

September 04, 2017 in Category: What's New

When you hear the words “seeds” and “beans,” birds and boys named Jack climbing beanstalks might come to mind, respectively. But what we’ve recently discovered is that a combination of the two leads to an irresistibly crispy snack—a snack for humans that does not contain magical beanstalk-growing legumes. That snack is Trader Joe’s Seed & Bean Medley, and we’re pretty sure that it’s what you’ll think of when you hear...

Organic Cacao & Maca Powders

September 01, 2017 in Category: What's New

Maca might be new to most North American grocery shoppers, but in South America, this revered root has been used in cooking and in medicine for well over 3,000 years. Grown high in the Andes Mountains, it looks a bit like a cross between a turnip and a radish. It’s been called the “Lost Crop of the Andes,” “Peruvian Ginseng,” and “Inca Gold,”—but we’re calling it simply Trader Joe’s Organic Maca Powder. Add a tablespoon to your morning smoothie, stir it into a piping-hot bowl of TJ’s Quinoa & Steel Cut Oatmeal, or use it in baked goods to lend a bit of nuttiness to the finished product...

Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry

August 30, 2017 in Category: What's New

While there’s a certain satisfaction that comes from cooking a meal from scratch, there’s equal enjoyment when something tastes like it was made from scratch, but cooks in a fraction of the time. The plethora of meal options in our freezer cases is a testament to this convergence of convenience and enjoyment—why stand over a hot stove or cutting board (and later, the kitchen sink) when you have tasty, pre-prepped meal components, ready to heat and eat at a moment’s notice? Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry is the newest addition to our user-friendly frozen lineup. A boon to the home cook, it...

The Cow Moos At Midnight

August 25, 2017 in Category: What's New

The Cow Moos at Midnight. We repeat, the cow moos at midnight. In not-so-secret Trader Joe’s code, this secret phrase is meant to announce the triumphant return of Trader Joe’s Organic Midnight Moo—the chocolate syrup to which all other chocolate syrups aspire.

This longtime favorite took an unexpected hiatus from our shelves, but has now returned and is ready to improve your quality of life. No need to thank us; this is the stuff that drives us, too.

In the world of salad, there are seemingly endless choices, so how do you choose? Why not go with something new, something intriguing, something whose name sounds a bit like you’re talking about a hip clergy member? Yes, friends, that would be Trader Joe’s Kohlrabi Salad Blend...
