Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend

February 15, 2017 in Category: What's New

As They Might Be Giants famously sang, “There’s only one everything.” Just think about it. Try counting up all the everythings in existence. You’ll quickly conclude that only one everything is sufficient—or even possible. Now, when it comes to spice blends, we also believe that just one Everything is sufficient, and that’s our Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. This is the only Everything Seasoning you’ll ever need for...

Supersweet Dried Carabao Mango

February 13, 2017 in Category: What's New

Carabao is a variety of mango... but also a type of domestic water buffalo. Both can be found in the Philippines. One lives in swamps, and one grows on trees. One is the national animal of the Philippines... the other will be gracing our shelves in the form of Trader Joe’s Supersweet Dried Carabao Mango! Our Dried Carabao Mango is special—and not just because it shares a name with a large bovid. It’s special because Carabaos are known as the sweetest mangoes in the world. This variety, grown only in the Philippines, is on the small side, with a curved and pointed end. In addition to being extra sweet, Carabaos are also...

Mudd Pie

February 10, 2017 in Category: What's New

When one of our Product Innovators announced that she and one of our most trusted dessert suppliers were joining forces to develop a TJ’s version of Mississippi mud pie, we couldn’t have been more thrilled. Any excuse to consume that much chocolate-y goodness is fine by us—and consume, we did. And when we finally settled on a version worthy of our name, Trader Joe’s Mudd Pie was born. (We added the second ‘d’ for funsies… and to make sure nobody thinks this thing is made out of actual mud. Because that would be gross. And this pie is delicious.) Mississippi mud pie came about sometime during...

Milk Chocolate Covered Dry Roasted & Salted Virginia Peanuts

January 13, 2017 in Category: What's New

It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that we’re quite fond of dipping things in chocolate. From fruit, to seeds, to nuts, to beans—we’ve dipped ’em all. Yet for years, we’ve somehow managed to overlook one of the most obvious combinations of all: chocolate-covered peanuts. You've heard that right! For far too long, our shelves have been devoid of this classic combo. Having seen the error of our ways, we’re ready to make amends with Trader Joe’s Milk Chocolate Covered Roasted & Salted Virginia Peanuts. Trust us, it was worth the wait. The perfect goodness of our Milk Chocolate Covered Peanuts starts at the very beginning, with U.S.-grown Virginia peanuts...

Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips

January 09, 2017 in Category: What's New

You might say that we’re tortilla chip aficionados. We are huge fans of these corn-based comestibles, and we’re in constant pursuit of the best possible tortilla chips the world has to offer. In fact, we are so dedicated to this pursuit that we decided to revamp our existing Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips because we had a feeling they could be even better. And if you’ll allow us to toot our own horn for a moment, our new Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips really hit the mark. We start with fresh, white corn tortillas...

Blackberry Spritzer

December 12, 2016 in Category: What's New

We would like to propose a toast. To whom, you ask? Why, to you! At Trader Joe’s, we are thankful for our customers every single day. Our cup truly runneth over with gratitude—and, right now, our cup also runneth over with Trader Joe’s Blackberry Spritzer. No, seriously. We can’t get enough of this stuff. Made with the juice of 17 whole blackberries, our lightly carbonated Blackberry Spritzer is rich with warm, sweet berry flavor and just a touch of tart. We fine-tuned this profile with a bit of cane sugar and a little lemon juice. This Spritzer is so fresh that some of the real fruit purée...

Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars

November 25, 2016 in Category: What's New

If a bear stumbles upon a gluten free gingerbread snack in the woods, and there’s no one around to witness the stumbling, did it really happen? We think you should ask the bear who adorns the package of Trader Joe’s Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars. Chances are, this bear will bear witness to the bear who is the bearer of these Bars that have just barely landed on our shelves. Bear in mind, the bear on the box may be biased; this appears to be a bear of great bearing, also bearing a couple of the aforementioned Bars. With all the incredibly sweet, high-impact treats on store shelves this time of year, Trader Joe’s Soft Baked Drizzled Gingerbread Oat Bars immediately stand out because of their...

Oh My Guava!

November 23, 2016 in Category: What's New

OMG! is a popular exclamation in our culture. (By “culture,” we mean Trader Joe’s, and by “OMG” we mean, of course, Oh My Guava! tropical fruit and black tea beverage.) For us, it’s not just an exclamation—it’s a drink with an attractive and unique flavor profile. To make it, we gathered our guava purée from Colombia in South America. It’s fruit purée that’s certified organic and kosher by the proper authorities. It’s also certified DEE-licious, by us. The purée is blended with...

In recent years, guacamole has become one of the most in-demand condiments. Given its popularity, we thought it time to make those small, portable packets a reality with Trader José’s Avocado’s Number Guacamole to Go.
