If you know me, you know I am a little bit Trader Joe’s obsessed. We do 80% of our shopping there and it never gets boring. I am generally someone who enjoys grocery shopping (I know not all people do), but I always argue that nobody would mind it so much if they always shopped at Trader Joe’s. It’s the Ikea of grocery stores, amirite?
I picked up a couple of new (and a couple of old, well-loved) items at Trader Joe’s recently and wanted to share, in case you’re making a trip to the store sometime soon.
Prosciutto* (5.29 oz) $4.99 // deli section
With all the bread I’ve been baking during the pandemic, we’ve been having many “German dinners” this last year. This translates to fresh bread with cheeses and cold cuts, and this prosciutto has been a staple in our fridge. I think I have successfully converted Jon into a “Brotzeit”-lover.
Soffrito* (2.7 oz) $3.29 // pantry section
This is the best, versatile seasoning blend ever and if you haven’t picked it up yet, you’re totally missing out. I use this in everything, most recently in all of the soups that I’ve been cooking.
Brie Cheese with Wild Mushrooms* (per lb) $11.99 // dairy section
Jon and I enjoy some brie and crackers every once in a while. I usually go for the regular brie, but I recently found this brie with wild mushrooms and since we both love mushrooms, we had to try it. Well, let’s just say it won’t be the last time that I bought it. It’s delicious!
Somebody (on Instagram? I don’t remember) recommended these protein bars. They have no added sugar and I was willing to try them for that reason alone. I am usually very picky when it comes to protein bars (most taste gross to me), but these were surprisingly good (although they do have some artificial sweetener, I realized, which I am not a huge fan of, but oh well). I love having an alternative (especially because they don’t need to be refrigerated – like Perfect bars, the only other protein bars I will buy, also available at Trader Joe’s.)
If you’re looking for a hand soap that smells good and lathers well, may I recommend this grapefruit hand soap? I am usually a fan of Mrs. Meyers hand soap and picked this one up on a whim, but I would also totally buy this one again.
