Instant Mango Oatmeal

June 24, 2016 in Category: What's New

It’s official. 2016 is marking another huge comeback for oatmeal—huge. Breaking out of the strictly-for-cold-weather breakfast bowl, it’s now a pan-meal, pan-seasonal must. Realizing that our oatmeal collection was a bit light on profiles that would tempt in the heart and heat of summer, we pursued something a bit fresher and fruitier. Guided by a proverb we once heard, “It’s not summer until you’ve eaten a mango,” we created Trader Joe’s Instant Mango Oatmeal. Beyond the whole...

Seeded Mango & Ginger Crisps

June 22, 2016 in Category: What's New

We first had success with crackers of this nature with our Raisin Rosemary Crisps. That success led to Pumpkin Cranberry Crisps (for fall) and Fig & Olive Crisps (just because). When our minds moved to mango, we knew there had to be a mango flavor combination that would work wonderfully in this format. And we found it! The mango is vital here, but what really makes Trader Joe’s Seeded Mango & Ginger Crisps gleam is the...

Shooting Stars

June 17, 2016 in Category: What's New

Summertime is camping time. Some people wait all year long for those perfect weather conditions that make sleeping under the stars an attractive possibility. Really, there’s nothing quite like it... the crisp, clean air on your skin; the night-time sounds in your ears; and of course the shooting stars, visible as they dash across the sky. Nothing goes better with summertime camping than summertime snacking, and that’s one reason we created Trader Joe’s Shooting Stars. The other reason is...

Mango Galette

June 15, 2016 in Category: What's New

Galette. It looks like a fruit pie, hastily made. Roughly round, with imperfectly folded pastry edges, galettes are usually brimming with apples, pears, peaches, or berries—nothing wrong with that! However, being mango season at Trader Joe’s, we couldn’t resist... Trader Joe’s Mango Galette is indeed rustic in appearance—and elegant, all at once. Our (close to) Boston bakers form these beauties by hand, starting with a traditional, wheat flour, pastry dough. The dough is filled with mangos, and lots of them. Notice, “Mango” is the...

Mango Bar Bites

June 13, 2016 in Category: What's New

Sometime in the twentieth century, somewhere, someone wedded pies with cookies to create a treat category unto itself—dessert bars. Genius. Sometime in 2011, Trader Joe’s wedded frozen, bite-size convenience with Classic Lemon Bars. Smart move. And that brings us to now. Exclusive to the mode of mango, we’ve crafted sweet-to-be-square Mango Bar Bites that are nothing short of brilliant, if we do say so ourselves. Trader Joe’s Mango Bar Bites feature a...

Mango Salsa

June 08, 2016 in Category: What's New

Diced mango, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño peppers, seasoned with lime juice, sunflower oil and salt—Mango Salsa boasts fresh vibrancy, heat, and sweet, ripe mango flavor. Here’s the kicker, though—Mango Salsa starts frozen. When the tasting panel first reviewed Mango Salsa, deep discussion ensued. The quality was unquestionable. The quandary—would customers look for salsa in the freezer? Sure, frozen fruits and vegetables are ubiquitous. We’ve even had tremendous success with frozen products as a result of their amazing...

Mango Sorbet Bon Bons

June 06, 2016 in Category: What's New

Goody, goody! That’s what you’ll be saying when you get your hands on some of these delicious Mango Sorbet Bon Bons. No really, that’s what “bon bon” translates to from French. So if you are as excited as we are for this summer novelty—goody, goody, indeed! Trader Joe’s Mango Sorbet Bon Bons with Chocolate Coating are a bold, refreshing re-imagining of our traditional ice cream bon bons. Instead of ice cream, they showcase sorbet made from...

Nourish Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer

June 03, 2016 in Category: What's New

You win some, you lose some. Not talking about Vegas. We’re talking about moisture. Your skin’s hydration is in constant flux—gaining moisture from your blood vessels and from the air around you, and losing moisture when damaged skin cells fail to maintain the moisture that’s been absorbed. When too much moisture is lost, you’re left feeling dry; a state that also promotes wrinkles and dull skin. Of course, the remedy for dry skin is lotion—and some lotions hydrate better than others. Our new Nourish: Enriched Intensive Antioxidant Facial Moisturizer is specially formulated for us by...

Muesli

June 01, 2016 in Category: What's New

There once was a Swiss-German doctor intrigued by the positive effects raw foods seem to have on the human body. He experienced such effects firsthand when he reportedly healed himself from jaundice by eating raw apples. Seeking a new, healthy, breakfast option for his chronically ill patients, Maximilian Bircher-Benner developed a cereal that came to be known as Birchermüesli—which effectively means: “Bircher’s little mash-up.” “Mash-up of what?” you ask. It was a...
