5 Trader Joe's favorites we are loving right now!
I love Trader Joe's. I love everything about it. The friendly staff, the extra long lines (notreally), the teeny "new" stuff section, and of course, the flowers. I love it all! I've been shopping at#TraderJoessince the late 90's. I first started shopping there while living in Southern California. Back then it was a quirky little grocery store with clever food titles and prices that fit a tight budget. For the most part, almost 20+ years later, it's still pretty much the same. So, with that in mind, you can expect to see regular posts about my TJ's. To kick it off, here are five currently stocked things at my local TJ's that we're loving right now!
Ultra Chocolate Ice Cream, Fair Trade Shade Grown Ethiopian Dark Roast, Vanilla Pumpkin Scented Candle, Honey Mustard & Onion Seasoned Pretzel Pieces, Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea
Ultra Chocolate Ice Cream
This may be the darkest deepest chocolate ice cream that I have ever tasted. It's rich, creamy, not too sweet, has a robust chocolate flavor and it doesn't take a lot tobe satisfied. Plus, go figure ... each serving has 3 grams of fiber.
Fair Trade Shade Grown Ethiopian Dark Roast
Starbucks is usually my go to coffee. Whether I go to the cafe or make it at home, it's my standard go to brand.However, one day while shopping in Trader Joe's an older lady saw me eyeing the coffee section and told me how much she loved the Ethiopian Dark Roast and Iquicklyproceeded to thank her and share that Starbucks is my go to. But, a few minutes later I decided to go out on a limb and try something new. Since then it stays in my morning brew rotation. It's a full, smooth deep roast that doesn't have a bitter aftertaste.
Vanilla Pumpkin Scented Candle
More vanilla than pumpkin with a gentle spice scent. My only complaint is that it seems to burn out pretty fast.
Honey Mustard & Onion Seasoned Pretzel Pieces
Brace yourself, these are low-key going to be your favorite pretzel snack if you like savory, sweet, salty combinations. It's one of the snacks where the flavor crumbs get all over your hands. Buyer beware. They are pretty tasty!
Organic Moroccan Mint Green Tea
This tea has been around for a few years.It's minty, green, and packs a gentle amount of caffeine which is often enough to get me through the afternoon slouch.
