Oak Wood Cold Smoked English Cheddar

January 08, 2016 in What's New

The smell of smoke is redolent of winter. Pouring out of stalwart chimneys into the midwinter chill, smoke conveys the promise of warmth emanating from hearth and home. What about the aroma of a smoky cheese? The feeling is the same—only you get to eat it, too. That’s why we’re pleased to introduce our Spotlight Cheese of the Month, Trader Joe’s Oak Wood Cold Smoked English Cheddar. Our cheese-maker is...

Scandinavian Swimmers

January 06, 2016 in What's New

Trader Joe’s Scandinavian Swimmers are soft, chewy candies, in the shape of sea creatures, bursting with fruity flavors, and colored with spirulina and fruit & vegetable extracts (pumpkin, carrot, black carrot, black currant, and apple). The creatures within the aquatically-themed pouch are some you might encounter in the ocean, or perhaps an aquarium. There’s a blue dolphin (huckleberry flavored), a red lobster (berry flavored), a sea horse (mango peach flavored)...

Tarte à l'Oignon (Alsatian Style Onion Tart)

January 04, 2016 in What's New

This Alsatian onion tart is a new addition to our freezers that’s worthy of your attention. It’s similar in style to other tarts we have in our stores, but without any custard. Rich and buttery, it has a unique crust and topping you might expect to find in a fabulous continental restaurant... not in the freezer case of a grocery store! Trader Jacques Tarte à l’Oignon begins with true...

Bruschette Tradizionale Oven Baked Toasts

December 30, 2015 in What's New

Bruschette (say: broo-SKEH-ta) is a traditional Italian meal starter that involves small slices of toasted or baked bread, topped with a variety of vegetables, deli meats, and herbs. Essential to this snack is the bread. It must be small. It must be crisp. And it should be simple. Trader Giotto’s Bruschette Tradizionale Oven Baked Toasts are all of these things—the perfect blank canvas for whatever fresh toppings the Italian-you craves. These come from...

Organic Spicy Spinach Blend

December 25, 2015 in What's New

Baby spinach is a perennial stalwart of the produce section. But being a stalwart can sometimes come across as being stodgy (we’re not calling baby spinach stodgy, but we’ve heard the talk, and we’re pragmatists). So we’ve found some friends for our old standby, and we’ve put them all together in a single bag. Trader Joe’s Organic Spicy Spinach Blend is a mix of...

Roasted Root Vegetable Ravioli

December 23, 2015 in What's New

Lately, we’ve been rooting for roots. All our Rah! Rah! rooting has led to some rootastic items, including our seasonal Butternut Squash, Beet (Root) & Goat Cheese Ravioli. While this unique and delicious seasonal pasta will eventually be going away, we’ve created another root-based ravioli that one could easily adopt as routine, since it will be on our shelves everyday moving forward. Ladies and gents, put your hands together and give it up for...

A Complete Salad: Kale & Hemp Seeds with Dates, Parmesan Cheese, Almonds & Lemon Vinaigrette

December 18, 2015 in What's New

When the weather gets colder, salad isn’t always the food that comes to mind. However, we’ve got a brand new seasonal salad that might change your idea of what constitutes cold-weather food. It’s A Complete Salad, featuring Kale & Hemp Seeds. The foundation of this Salad is tender, baby Kale and crunchy Hemp Seeds—but if that were all, we’d have a hard time justifying the “Complete” in the title. Red and white...

Artisan Bread Pretzel Croissants

December 16, 2015 in What's New

Pretzels, pretzels, pretzels! Among other things, you can classify Trader Joe’s as a pretzel purveyor. For years we’ve sold pretzels in many sizes and shapes (nuggets, sticks, slims, twists, rods), with at least as many flavor profiles (honey wheat, multigrain, pumpernickel, peanut butter, and covered in yogurt or chocolate). Many of these pretzel products fall into the snack category (as they should), but we’ve also found success with pretzel items in our bakery section. The latest is our Artisan Bread Pretzel Croissants. If you are an...

Partially Popped Popcorn with Butterscotch & Sea Salt

December 14, 2015 in What's New

Introduced earlier this year, Trader Joe’s Partially Popped Popcorn is a snack like none we’ve offered before—except for the fact that our customers love it! It’s popcorn, for sure, but popcorn that’s not fully popped. Our supplier uses a proprietary method in which they first steam a special hybrid of so-called “mushroom” kernels (instead of the fluffier, “butterfly” variety enjoyed in theaters), before heating them in canola oil to a state of half popp-ed-ness. Our original flavor, Partially Popped Popcorn with Butter and Sea Salt, arrived in...
