Last Sunday, I went to Trader Joe’s for the first time in way too long! I stocked (overstocked?!) up on my usual food items, but discovered a few new items to test out.
From top, clockwise: Pumpkin Cream Cheese ($2.99 for 7 oz), Instant Miso Soup ($3.29 for 4 packages), Pumpkin Spice Rooibos ($3.99 for 20 bags), Inner Peas ($1.29), and Spicy Jalapeno Chicken Sausage ($3.99 for 5 sausages).
I’ll be spreading the cream cheese on rice cakes and possibly baking with it, throwing vegetables and meat into the miso soup to make it more filling, serving the pumpkin tea with a tiny bit of honey, trying not to eat the whole bag of Inner Peas as a snack, and eating the chicken sausages in soup or served on gluten-free bread with onions, peppers, and Frank’s Red Hot.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your favorite Trader Joe’s finds?
P.S. Did you know that Trader Joe’s will open any product for you to sample? I can’t remember where I read that but I asked to do it for the pumpkin cream cheese and they were very gracious about it. That stuff is aaaamzing, so I immediately threw it into my cart! Don’t forget the tip about bringing your own bag too.
