Sharing my favorite finds from Trader Joe’s!
Hellooooo! How are ya? I hope you’re enjoying the day so far. I have a couple of meetings this morning and looking forward to a massage later today. I hope you have a lovely day ahead!
For today’s post, I wanted to share my favorite Trader Joe’s finds! I LOVE learning about new Trader Joe’s products — they have so much good stuff. Since 2020, the Pilot had been doing most of the grocery shopping. Since he was “out in the world” more during that one time that shall not be named, it was something we did for safety. He would get most of our groceries at Trader Joe’s, and we would order everything else for pickup from Whole Foods.
Over time as things changed, the grocery routine remained the same. He would get most of the groceries at TJ’s, I would pick up the extra stuff at Whole Foods or Natural Grocers. While I loved the fact that he took this major chore off my plate, I definitely missed browsing Trader Joe’s and finding new fun things. When I finally went back… I went a little wild lol. The guy at checkout was like, “I’m going to grab you a second cart” lol.
For today’s post, I wanted to share some of my all-time faves. Please try to keep in mind that I tried to only include more *fun* stuff on this list. Yes, Everything but the Bagel seasoning is life-changing, and Trader Joe’s has lovely medjool dates, salad greens, flowers, and candles, but I wanted to include products that are exclusive to Trader Joe’s. Please let me know if you have any favorites, especially for fall!
My 15 favorite Trader Joe’s products
1. The gluten-free brownie mix
I’ve tried so many gf brownies mixes over the years and this one is hands down the best. It’s fudgy, soft, super rich, and let’s just ignore the fact that the #1 ingredient is sugar.
2. “Everything but the Elote” chips
These chips are LIFE and there’s nothing that tastes as good as the first chip. They’re extremely savory, a little spicy, and have the perfect Frito-esque shape and crunch. 10/10
3. Chili and Lime Flavored Rolled Tortilla Chips aka TJ’s Takis
We all agree that these taste even better than Taki’s and have way better ingredients. The flavor is much more bold and lime-y, and no red food dye. Wins all a
