I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. Come join me. #nablopomo2020
If you know me, you know I am a little bit Trader Joe’s obsessed. We do 80% of our shopping there and although I wish we’d finally also get an Aldi in the area, I would never trade my Trader Joe’s for it.
It’s been a whole year since I shared some of the things that I have recently purchased (and loved) from Trader Joe’s and I thought I’d bring this feature back. The holiday season is an especially exciting time to shop at TJ’s because they always have really great seasonal items.
Here are a few things I’ve recently picked up on my shopping trips:
Pappardelle Pasta* (8 oz) $1.99 // pantry section
It’s surprising how much the shape of your pasta changes the character of your pasta dish. We usually buy whole grain spaghetti or penne for our pasta dishes, but this pappardelle pasta was a really nice change if you’d like to switch things up.
Turkey Burger (12 oz) $2.99 // freezer section
We’ve worked hard to try every single frozen burger variety that Trader Joe’s offers (still a few to go), but the turkey burgers are one of our favorites. They’re just simple patties without any extra seasoning, they cook nicely, and don’t lose a lot of water. Solid buy!
Cotswold Double Gloucester Cheese* (per lb) $9.99 // dairy section
You can’t go wrong with any cheese, IMHO, but this is one of my recent favorites. If you are planning to put together a cheese/charcuterie board for the holidays (and honestly, who doesn’t?), add this cheese to your selection. You won’t regret it.
Fairtrade Organic Bolivian Blend Coffee* (14 oz) $7.99 // pantry section
When we don’t want to pay the big bucks for fancy coffee, this is our go-to everyday coffee. We grind the beans freshly at home and it’s really smooth and delicious coffee.
Speculoos* (7 oz) $2.99 // above freezer section
Do yourself a favor and get a box of Speculoos for the holiday season. These cookies are so good and they pair wonderfully with a hot cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. (I dunk mine into the warm beverage.)
What have you bought at Trader Joe’s recently?
