Does anyone else find grocery shopping as fun and therapeutic as I do? As a die hard foodie and food blogger, the idea of hitting up a grocery store and exploring the aisles is my idea of a good time. Although I do most of my shopping at either Aldi or Publix, Trader Joe’s has always been my favorite place to find unique items and snacks at inexpensive prices. This week, I’m sharing some of the fun finds from my latest trip to foodie paradise – Trader Joe’s!
Here are 8 of my latest finds!
Trader Joe’s Organic Mango Kombucha
Where are my kombucha fans at? Among the new additions to their organic kombucha is this Mango flavor. Although GT’s Mystic Mango has been one of my go-to’s, I decided to give this one a try. In addition to mango, they also offer an Organic Pomegranate Hibiscus and Organic Green Tea flavor. At $2.69 it’s such a great price.
Miyoko’s Vegan Cream Cheese – Un-Lox Your Dreams
I am a fan of anything by Miyoko’s and anything I can spread on a bagel. Miyoko’s has created the the perfect cream cheese schmear but it’s made with cashews, coconut oil, and nori. I’m super excited to try this on an everything bagel or even mixed into scrambled eggs.
Almond Butter Coconut Greek Low Fat Yogurt
This new one caught my eye and I couldn’t wait to share it with you – Almond Butter Coconut Low Fat Greek Yogurt. Best part is it’s only 99 cents, Trader Joe’s for the WIN! Someone who’s tried it says it has more of a coconut taste than almond butter. I guess I’ll have to try it for myself to be the judge!
Unsweetened Almond, Cashew & Macadamia Milk
Almond, Cashew and Macadamia Nut Milk will make all your non-dairy coffee dreams come true! A touch of sea salt is added to enhance these inherently nutty flavors. It’s also free of dairy, gluten, lactose, and soy. At $2.29 for a quart, it’s priced comparably to other alternative milk products. Since it’s unsweetened it will be perfect in my morning coffee and I’ll be able to use it for soups and sauces too.
Matcha Almond Beverage
This is a new product that came out a few months ago, but it has only been in stock recently at my local TJ’s. I didn’t bother getting the blueberry lavender – just doesn’t sound like something that would appeal to me. But matcha? Why yes! Not too high in calories(60 per cup), and the sugar(7 grams/serving) isn’t bad either. I’ll keep you posted on this one!
Organic Maca Powder
What’s so exciting about this is that the price of maca powder can often run a little high, making it hard for a lot of us to purchase it, even as a special treat. Thankfully, TJ’s is selling an eight-ounce pouch of maca powder for just $4.99, which means I’m foreseeing a lot of superfood-infused smoothies in my future.
Chomps Grass Fed Snack Sticks
I love that I can now find Chomps Snack Sticks in store versus online. At $1.69, I picked up a few of the Grass Fed Turkey flavor. These are awesome for road trips or just tossing into your bag.
Angelcots are a special, limited white-flesh apricot grown in California. They have the juiciness of the ripest nectarine with the delicate texture and aroma of an apricot. Angelcots have the perfect balance of acid and sugar with a buttery, perfume-like sweetness. I plan to grill a few and add them to an arugula and honey goat cheese salad. They’re only available for a short period of time so grab a container while you can.
These are just a few of my favorites. If you enjoy these posts, drop me a comment below! I’m thinking of doing a monthly Trader Joe’s feature!
