Gingerbread Cookie Sticks

November 16, 2016 in Category: What's New

Gingerbread Baking Mix, Gingerbread Cookie Caramel Chocolate Bar, Gingerbread House Kit... we’re genuinely jazzed about gingerbread right now. ‘Tis the season, after all. In the spirit of full disclosure, we’ll admit that the above list is woefully incomplete. There are more gingery treats to be found on our shelves, like Trader Joe’s Gingerbread Cookie Sticks, new this year to our bakery section. Gingerbread Cookies Sticks might be described as a cross between biscotti and soft-baked cookies. They’re long like biscotti, chewy like...

Our customers like to eat Greek yogurt, and we like to sell them Greek yogurt—it works out well. Such a successful symbiotic relationship requires, at times, change.

Nutty Seedy Fruity Bar

Here at Trader Joe’s, we like adjectives. They help us describe the delicious, exciting, adventurous, international, craving-inducing, palatable, ever-changing and intriguing products we carry, and we’re sure you can never use too many.

Italian Bigonda Cheese with Herbs

November 09, 2016 in Category: What's New

The Dolomite mountain range of Italy is a renowned destination for skiers, cyclists and even stair climbers—it’s home to the Calà del Sasso, the world’s longest staircase open to the public at 4,444 steps. The Dolomite mountain range is also renowned for its cheeses, and happens to be the home of Trader Joe’s Italian Bigonda Cheese with Herbs.

The milk used in the making of this cheese comes from cattle that graze on the breathtaking...

Pumpkin Vinaigrette

November 07, 2016 in Category: What's New

While we at Trader Joe’s firmly believe a salad is greater than the sum of its parts, we also know the dressing component has a lot to do with a salad’s overall success at the table. Extra virgin olive oil is a must for a smooth mouthfeel. Vinegar adds a bracing kick of flavor and helps cut through the bitterness of salad greens. Finally, seasonings like salt, pepper and mustard provide point of view and personality. Our Pumpkin Vinaigrette meets all of these requirements, but with a seasonal twist. Intrigued? Each bottle of Pumpkin Vinaigrette contains 17% rich pumpkin...

Korma Fish Curry

November 04, 2016 in Category: What's New

The curry-based dish known as “Korma” originated in medieval India, at a time when the Persian Mughal Empire ruled the subcontinent. This food first emerged in the north as a meal of meat or vegetables, braised in a spicy sauce. Trader Joe’s now presents a twist on traditional Korma, introducing some unconventional elements from the south (coconut milk, tamarind), and putting fish at the center of the plate. Trader Joe’s Korma Fish Curry starts with Swai, a fish native to...

Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter

November 03, 2016 in Category: What's New

We did it! We fit an entire pumpkin pie into a jar. Don’t pretend like you haven’t tried to do the same. Okay, okay, maybe not an entire pie—but that was the best way to describe the deliciousness found in a jar of Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookie Butter. Like all of our cookie butters, we start with cookies. Pumpkin Joe-Joe’s Cookies, to be exact. They are crushed and blended with real pumpkin puree to complete the cookie butter’s autumn alteration. We’ve left chunky pieces of cookie in a nod to oft-overlooked pie crust. Along with the purée, our Pumpkin Pie Cookie Butter has archetypal...

Almond Butter Granola

October 31, 2016 in Category: What's New

Almond butter is not just for spreading on sandwiches. You can use it as a base for sauces, blend it into smoothies and milkshakes, or slather it on celery sticks. We particularly enjoy it as the featured ingredient in Trader Joe’s Almond Butter Granola. Our Almond Granola starts with a base of rolled oats, whole California-grown almonds, and smooth, nutty almond butter. The oats and almonds contribute to this granola’s generous protein and fiber content; 5g and 4g, respectively, without the use of additional protein sources like soy. Crisped brown rice is blended with...

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Baking Mix

October 28, 2016 in Category: What's New

All pumpkin, all the time. That’s our motto around here—at least during pumpkin season. We're so goo-goo for pumpkin, we've got two Pumpkin Baking Mixes—our conventional version, and this one for our gluten sensitive friends. Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Baking Mix is easy to make (add egg, oil & water, mix, and bake), and even easier to eat. When we tasted it, what impressed us most about this Mix was that if we hadn’t known it was gluten free, we wouldn’t have known it was gluten free. Our supplier is expert at mixing...
