Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale

February 17, 2017 in Category: What's New

The third president of the United States is well known for writing The Declaration of Independence, making the Louisiana Purchase, helping to found religious freedom, and more. We believe, however, that there is one important accomplishment for which Thomas Jefferson has not yet been given enough credit, namely—the popularizing of mac and cheese in America. Trader Joe’s has already been following Jefferson’s lead with seven or so versions of our own macaroni and cheese—and counting! In the continuing spirit of American innovation, here’s our latest: Trader Joe’s Ditalini Pasta + Cheddar Cheese + Cauliflower + Kale...

Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon Ends & Pieces

September 16, 2016 in Category: What's New

“Waste not, want not,” is how the proverb goes. Like many truisms, it’s common sense. Save what’s left over (instead of throwing it away) and you’ll have more for another day. Sometimes, we’ll ask a supplier to save “what’s left over” from the creation of a Trader Joe’s product, and reserve those unused portions to be packaged up and sold separately. We’ve used this approach with our bacon [Trader Joe’s Uncured Bacon Ends & Pieces], salami [Columbus Peppered Salame Ends and Pieces], and several other items. Our latest application of this ‘waste not’ approach has produced Trader Joe’s Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon Ends & Pieces. The supplier of our regular sliced Wild Sockeye Smoked Salmon harvests its Red Salmon from...

On average, Americans consume less than a pound of lamb per year. That’s amazing when compared to the whopping 270 pounds of other red meats we eat annually. We’ve been racking our brains, trying to figure out how to stop such delicious meat from being so overlooked—and we think we’ve come up with a solution: Trader Joe’s Marinated Rack of Lamb with Herbs. The process of cooking lamb makes some people sheepish, since it’s a food with which most of us are unfamiliar. Worry not! The fears associated with preparation, seasoning, and cooking are put to rest with Trader Joe’s Rack of Lamb. It’s marinated with olive oil, garlic, sea salt and white pepper and topped with...
