It’s been a while since I shared some of my more recent Trader Joe’s* buys with you. I follow a couple of Trader Joe’s lovers’ Instagram accounts and I constantly see new items that I am adding to my “to-try-list”.
And obviously, since it’s fall, there will be a gazillion new seasonal items soon that I’ll have to try out. Of course, I am also hoping for some old favorites to come back.
Here are a couple of recent buys that I loved. Have you had any of these products?
Organic Fair Trade Breakfast Blend ( 14 oz – $7.99) ★★★★★ \ pantry section
This is our favorite coffee right now. It’s organic, it’s fair trade, it tastes delicious and its affordable at this price. What’s not to love? We usually cycle through a few Trader Joe’s coffees because they have quite a few tasty ones, but if you’d ask me right now, I’d say that this is my all-time favorite.
Joe’s Diner Mac ‘n Cheese (14 oz – $ 2.99) ★★★★★ \\ freezer section
Have you tried the frozen Mac’n Cheese? These are really good and ready in 5 minutes. Definitely a treat for a lazy weeknight or quick side dish, and I mean, who doesn’t like Mac’n Cheese?
Salsa Especial (Mild) (12 oz – $ 2.99) ★★★★★ \\ refrigerated section
I probably have recommended this salsa before. It beats pretty much every other fresh salsa I had from a supermarket or even from any Mexican place. When we get Mexican take-out, we usually get the burritos and the chips, but then eat the chips with this salsa because we always have one of these tubs in the fridge. Just in case!
Dr Praeger’s California Veggie Burger (4 x 2.5 oz – $3.49 ) ★★★★★ \\ freezer section
It doesn’t always have to be meat for me to enjoy a good burger. These veggie burgers are super-yummy and very quick to make. They also stay together pretty well (which sometimes isn’t the case with veggie burgers, so plus points there!) We keep a few in the freezer for easy weeknight dinners and they’re also a nice breakfast item with a side of eggs.
Organic Apple Mango Fruit Sauce Crushers (4 x 3.17 oz – $2.99 ) ★★★★★ \\ pantry section
I am pretty sure that these fruit crushers are meant for kids, but I discovered that they’re a great fuel option for my long runs. They are tasty, easy to store in my running belt, and easy to eat while running. Win – win.
