Best of Trader Joes

 I am obsessed with Trader Joes! I love living less than 15 minutes away from one! I go about once a month for a few awesome items. I don't do all of my grocery shopping there. The produce is a hit and a miss, and is generally a little overpriced, as well as their meat. But there are plenty of awesome things there, far cheaper, or just unique and yummy that you can't get anywhere else. Be sure to try their seasonal items. I really love their fall and Christmas stuff! I always stock up on their nuts and their cheeses especially. Here are some of my favorite things, in no particular order. Their items do occasionally rotate, and I think they can be different from store to store, so hopefully, you can find these to enjoy! 


Fresh Flowers

Their fresh flowers are amazing! They are so cheap and often last two weeks!

Seriously my favorite thing to have in the house.

Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Coins

They just came out with these this summer! They are such a yummy treat!

Grab them while you can!

Pecan Praline Granola

Very sweet, no doubt loaded with sugar, hahah but so yummy! 


Acai Puree Packets (frozen)

Perfect for making easy acai bowls! I always stock up on frozen fruit from TJs as well.




Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches

They are not joking when they say sublime! These are sooo good!! 

Midsummer Night's Cream Moisturizing Cream

I LOVE this stuff. Makes my hands so soft! And is so lightweight!

I hate when my skin feels caked in lotion, but this is very light and absorbs really well.

Micellar Cleanser Makeup Remover Towelettes

I am very picky when it comes to my make up removers, but this one is one 

of my faves that I have found that don't leave my skin feeling dried out, and is super affordable! 



Their cheese is all so yummy, excellent quality, and very affordable.

I always have mozzarella and goats cheese on hand! 

Garlic Naan and Frozen Indian Meals

Their garlic naan is sooo good. I have tried making homemade naan a number of times, but have never

been able to make it succesfully. This stuff is so yummy and easy! Their frozen Indian meals are so tasty! 

I think you could honestly fool someone into thinking it was homemade! Perfect for a lazy dinner!

Chilie Lime Chicken Burgers

These are so easy to cook up and so flavorful! Top with a little mayo, lettuce, tomato, and guac

and you have another quick and yummy dinner!

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning

This stuff is so yummy! So far we have been using it to make keto bagels

(we are not 100% keto, but just trying to eat healthier...)

and this seasoning packs so much flavor! They have lots of very affordable seasonings!

I also usually buy coconut oil, and almond butter here 


Mandarin Orange Chicken

Trader Joes freezer meals are THE BEST! They seriously just taste like you ordered take out.

Perfect to have in the freezer for quick and lazy dinners. Check out their Kung Pao Chicken as well! 


Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry

Easy and healthy side that pairs perfectly with their freezer meals! 

Pretzel Slims

These are HEAVEN! Dave and I can eat a bag in one sitting.

They make a great gift as well! People always love them!

Canned Jackfruit

They don't always have this one, but if you find it, give it a try! Jackfruit works as an amazing meat substitute.

We make chipotle tacos and BBQ "pulled pork" sandwiches with them. I think everyone should try it at least once! 

Frozen Chocolate Croissants

These require some patience as they do need to proof overnight in order to be airy and flaky, 

but it is well worth the wait! Once baked, they honestly taste like something straight out of a fancy French bakery! 

Balamic Glaze

I looooove making caprese salads for a quick snack or side dish,

and drizzling this over top is heaven!  

Lemonade and Other Drinks

Dave loves their lemonade and I theirthier pink lemonade!

They have so many yummy and unique drinks! 


Multigrain Bread

I don't know what it is about this bread but it is SO GOOD!

Makes for the best sandwiches and toast!

Toasted Coconut Pancake Mix


Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Another favorite lazy dinner. I normally do not like tomato soup AT ALL, but this has such an incredible flavor!

I honestly crave it all the time. Must have pantry item.

Mango Chipotle BBQ Sauce

I hear they have lots of yummy BBQ sauces, but this is the only one I have tried so far and we were obsessed!

I loved slapping it on some chicken or pork chops. So good.
