What are your personal favorite items to buy at Trader Joe’s? Let’s chat!
In no particular order, here are 10 of the best and most popular items to buy at Trader Joe’s:
1. Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Back in 2021, this particular product actually won the Annual Customer Choice Award! As we all know and love to snack on, chocolate and peanut butter is such an iconic flavor combination. For some reason, the dark chocolate version of this classic just completely took off over at Trader Joe’s and has been a forever customer fave for years, and many more years to come.
2. Everything But The Leftovers Seasoning Blend
One review on this product stated that it was basically just Thanksgiving in a jar of seasoning. We’ve all heard of, and probably tried, the Everything Bagel version of this seasoning. The Leftovers version, on the other hand, includes the following blend of spices and herbs: dehydrated onion, sea salt, turmeric powder, rosemary, thyme, sage, and so much more!
3. Green Goddess Dip
This is a take on a pretty famous Green Goddess Dressing that you can actually find just about anywhere that calls itself a grocery store. It contains creamy ingredients, such as sour cream and mayo. It also includes things like citrus and garlic, as well as something that adds just a tiny bit of spice to it. Not into dips? They also have a Green Goddess Seasoning Blend as well!
4. Hold The Cone Ice Cream Cones
This is potentially one of the most famous products to come out of Trader Joe’s…ever. They are basically just tiny little ice cream cones, filled with chocolate sauce all the way to the bottom tip of the cone, then filled with some super delicious and creamy ice cream. Not that I ever feel guilt eating any sort of ice cream, but this treat is super tiny and also pretty guilt-free as well!
5. Sweet Corn, Burrata & Basil Ravioli
This was originally released a Summer-themed version of the stuffed pasta; however, ever since then, it’s been a returning customer fave that was even found not in the Summertime as well. Some of the most popular reviews say to just add some simply butter and black pepper as a sauce and then you’re all good to go! Eat up and enjoy, y’all!
6. Mac and Cheese Bites
Fried balls of mac and cheese…what more could someone want, am I right? These were so popular at one point that they had to ‘discontinue’ sales briefly in order to catch up with the supply and demand, so that should say it all right there! The best part, for me at least? They are stuffed with not one, not two, and not even three, but seven different types of cheeses! Sign. Me. Up.
7. Cauliflower Gnocchi
This is something that I’ve seen people try on YouTube videos and Vlogs countless times. This is probably, from what I’ve seen at least, one of the most tried and most popular items at any given Trader Joe’s. Someone even reviewed them and said when they put them out, you better be shopping before noon or else you won’t get any. They are also super versatile to use sauces!
8. BBQ Chicken Teriyaki
Everyone’s talked about and heard of their super popular Orange Chicken; however, I wanted to take the chance to highlight something else that’s super popular, but it the same general category. Now, this particular product comes frozen. Most people say that it goes super well over rice or even some delicious and buttery ramen noodles! Yumm-oh!
9. Vegan Kale, Cashew & Basil Pesto
While this particular product is labeled as being ‘Vegan’, don’t worry! Even non-vegans rant and rave about this. It goes perfect as a base for a pizza sauce on make your own pizza nights! It can also serve as a super delicious pasta sauce and for those that aren’t vegan, mix it with some delicious cheese and cream and you’ve got yourself one freaking delicious pesto cream sauce!
10. Vanilla Bean Joe Joe’s
I just simply couldn’t talk about Trader Joe’s without talking about their Joe Joe’s! It’s basically their store-brand version of Oreos, and man do people love these things that’s for dang sure. I wanted to take this moment to highlight the Vanilla Bean-flavored ones as best to represent their version of a dupe for the name-brand product. These are better for you, and most say they taste better!
