I love shopping at Trader Joe’s for 2 reasons: 1) I find I can do my entire grocery shopping in about 20-30 minutes and 2) they sell things you can’t get anywhere else. Unfortunately, I usually spend more at Trader Joe’s (most likely because of reason #2). So I limit to my trips to Trader Joe’s to about once a month – same at Costco.
Of course, I found a few things on my trip yesterday that caught me eye that I wanted to share with you.
Meyer Lemon Cake Mix with Lemon Icing: $3.29
Coffee Flour: $3.99
What would you use this for? I’m thinking maybe brownies or some other chocolate-y desserts.
Vienna Coffee Meringues: $3.49
Organic Melon Juice, 33.8 oz: $3.9
Can’t say ‘ve ever thought about melon juice! I’m curious about the flavor. Maybe it would be good in a punch or as a cocktail, too.
100% Pure Mango Juice, 4 ct 8.4 oz: $2.99
I love mangos and was intrigued by this mango juice. I bet you could use it in cooking and baking as well as drinking.
Giant Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce: $1.99
I nearly bought this, but didn’t (and now regret it). I’m wondering how these could be used. In a soup?
Way more Chocolate Chips Cookies: $4.29
I bought these and yes, they are good!
Roasted Garlic & Onion Jam: $2.99
The sign says to “spread it on anything within reason.” I’m thinking it might make an interesting condiment for bratwurst or burgers. The jar also suggests serving it with meats and cheeses. Other ideas? Have you tried this?
Greens, Beans & Grains: ~$3.29
I’ve seen this in the freezer section before, never tried it. Looks like a good vegan option!
Hearts of Palm: $3.29
The sign reads that the flavor is similar to an artichoke. Any ideas for how you’d use them? Maybe in a salad or in pasta?
Toasted Coconut Pancake Mix: $3.69
This sounds heavenly! Another item I regret leaving behind… sniff!
Have you tried any of these items? Any other items you’ve purchased recently at Trader Joe’s I need to know about?
