What I Buy At Trader Joe’s

Ahh Trader Joe’s…one of my favorite places to go shopping (along with Costco and Target!). So many great things at even better prices. I have a few go-tos I always grab on a trip to Trader Joe’s, as well as a few sections I always browse. Today I’m sharing some of my favorites and some new products I’m loving!

Gummy Vitamins – Reasonably priced multivitamin for kids. I often grab myself a multivitamin there for myself as well.

Rosé Vinaigrette – I love a good vinaigrette so I was super excited to find this one! I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks really promising.

Granola – Great as a cereal with milk or a smoothie bowl topping

Cookie Cocoa Swirl – My kids are big bread/toast eaters and they aren’t huge fans of peanut butter or Nutella. This is a fun alternative.

Chia Seeds – I love adding these to smoothies (my kids love them!) and these are very well priced.

Gorilla Munch cereal – A classic that my kids absolutely love.

Roasted Cocoa Nibs – These are a great topping for oatmeal or smoothie bowls. They add some chocolate flavor without the guilt.

Reduced Guilt Pita Chips – I love pita chips and these are a delicious reduced calorie version that tastes the same as the regular ones!

Creamed Honey – Another delicious bread/toast topping that my kids absolutely love.

Organic Chicken Broth – TJs broth is delicious and well priced. I make soups often so I like to keep a few on hand.

Seasonal Treats – I grabbed these chocolate covered heart cookies for my kids a few weeks back for Valentines. They always have fun seasonal snacks!

Vanilla Bean Syrup – My kids absolutely love this vanilla bean infused syrup.

Rainbow of Honey – We add honey to smoothies and tea, and this rainbow of honey kit is not only good but it looks pretty sitting on the counter.

Cheeses – Trader Joe’s always has the best cheeses. Not pictured but I especially love their Burrata and also their Truffle Cheese. And I love adding feta to salads and the Mediterranean herb is especially good.

Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie – For nights when you want a fresh baked cookie but don’t want to make it from scratch – just toss this one in the oven!

Pizza ingredients – I love homemade pizza dough – but Trader Joe’s does have really good refrigerated dough. I also like their pepperoni, shredded mozzarella & pizza sauce.

Green Goddess Dressing – I bought this after hearing a lot of good things about it. I’ve seen tons of recipes/uses for it on Pinterest and it is low calorie!

Pastry Pups – My kids absolutely love these. These are great for a lazy Sunday lunch or a play date. They are also nitrate free.

Hummus – I’m the only one in my house who really likes hummus – but this makes for a great snack with pita chips & a little feta.

Vegetable Samosas – These aren’t quite as good as the delicious Indian restaurant here we like to go to – but these are a pretty solid substitute.

Tzatziki – TJs has so many good sauces! We had gyros recently and this is so good & easier than making from scratch on a busy weeknight.

Frozen berries – Great for making smoothies

Jasmine Rice – I love their frozen rice for busy weeknights. So simple to prepare! Their brown rice is very good too.

Not pictured but my kids absolutely love their frozen croissants & they make a delicious Sunday morning breakfast.

And a few more things:

Sparkling Berry Lemonade – These are fun special occasion or picnic drinks! They have a few other flavors too.

Breads – I like checking out the various breads they have when I’m there. I like their pita bread & recently saw a cinnamon bread there that I want to try for French toast.

Baking ingredients – I really like their chocolate chips and also their seasonings!

Hand Soap – I always make sure to check out their hand soap section when I’m there. I got the cutest winter White Pine soap/lotion set around Christmas for my bathroom. I think this grapefruit one actually looks cute sitting on my kitchen counter too!

Candle – Their $3.99 soy candles are a steal & they always have new scents!
