Organic French Roast Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate

May 06, 2016 in Category: What's New

When we first introduced our TJ’s Cold Brew Concentrate in 2013, we knew it was going to be a hit, but how big of a hit... well, even we weren’t fully prepared. Since then, the bottled cold brew and cold brew concentrate trend has all but exploded, and ours is the best value on the market—by a long shot. So, we approached our supplier about introducing a second variety of Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate this year—this time an organic offering—and we were thrilled when they agreed. Like it’s predecessor...

Pickled Cauliflower Medley

April 27, 2016 in Category: What's New

From the same supplier that handcrafts our Raw Fermented Sauerkraut with Pickled Persian Cucumbers comes Trader Joe’s Pickled Cauliflower Medley, a star-studded selection of super foods—specifically, three colors of cauliflower and sweet peppers in a trio of hues. Like its sauerkraut sibling, this mix of vitamin and mineral-packed veggies (every serving has four times the amount of vitamin C you’ll find in an orange!) is raw, never cooked...

Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs

April 25, 2016 in Category: What's New

About five years ago, we introduced a pocket-friendly, one-ounce tin of Dark Chocolate Nibs. The delightful, one-calorie-per-piece, dark chocolate snacking—coupled with the convenience of the cute, flip-top container—charmed. That is, until we discovered a supplier that could source 3.5 times the amount of same-caliber nibs for the exact same $1.99 price. The compromise? We’d have to swap out the tin for a cheery, re-sealable pouch. While the updated packaging may not prove as amenable to the pocket, the radical upswing in value makes them utterly more friendly—definitely time to make a change...

Organic Chia Bar

April 15, 2016 in Category: What's New

The name “chia” is said to have come from the Mayan word for strength. In fact, in ancient Mayan and Aztec cultures, chia seeds were prized (above gold, we’ve read) because of their energy-producing prowess. Runners and warriors ate a lot of them. Here’s where ancient history starts shaping modern snacking. Chia is, once again, a treasured source of sustenance, so we’ve crafted a chia-centric bar, perfect for on-the-run, everyday warriors (you know—parents, accountants, students, athletes, etc.). Each of our...

Joe Medium Roast and Joe's Dark Ground Coffees

April 08, 2016 in Category: What's New

The simple act of brewing a cup of morning coffee can provide a moment of culinary Zen—a quiet and creative start to one’s day, before the flurry of mundane and required tasks kick in. But for those in a rush, this kind of ceremonial coffee prep at daybreak is pure fantasy. While Trader Joe’s may not be able to guarantee daily moments of peaceful meditation around the coffee pot, we are doing our part to...

Organic Black Bean Rotini

April 01, 2016 in Category: What's New

Here’s pasta with a twist. Actually, two twists. When you think pasta, you very likely think of semolina flour—or at the very least, wheat flour. If you’re a gluten free eater, your thoughts may go to rice or quinoa or corn. So it’s safe to say, if you’re thinking pasta, you’re thinking grain. It’s also safe to say that in creating Trader Joe’s Organic Black Bean Rotini, we went against the grain. This is pasta made with 100% black beans. No grains; just...
