While traveling in the Puglia region of Italy (that’s the “heel” of Italy’s geographical “boot”), our Product Developer tasted an extra virgin olive oil so unbelievably delicious, she was determined to bring said olive oil stateside— more specifically, to our shelves— so our customers could have the chance to taste it as well.

A long time ago, someone (or a group of someones) decided that chocolate and mint were the perfect pairing partners for spreading holiday cheer. We’re not quite sure who they are, but we want to thank them all the same.

November 24, 2017 in Category: Product Stories

While there are multiple stories detailing the origin of panettone, one thing’s for certain: this traditional Italian cake—with its cylindrical shape and cupola (domed) top—is synonymous with the holiday season at Trader Joe’s.
