Trader Joe’s first opened stores in 1958 under the name Pronto Markets. In 1967 the name was changed to the name we are all familiar with today.
Trader Joe’s gives you the great food with great prices by…
Ive tried so many items in the store and Ive never not liked one. Here is a list of my top 10 favorites.
Organic Popping Corn
I’m obsessed with homemade popcorn. Take a tablespoon of vegetable oil, place 3 kernels in the pan and heat, once the 3 kernels pop, the oil is hot enough, add another 1/2 cup of kernels and let the popping begin. (I add a tablespoon of butter and a dash of salt so the popcorn absorbs it once it pops).
I don’t need an explanation for these
My dog Harley loves peanut butter as much as I do. PB&J’s and apples with peanut butter are my fave. I give Harley apples with his food in the morning along with his Glucosamine pills hidden in peanut butter. So we always have these in the house.
Coconut Oil Spray
Replaces PAM and tastes way better, especially with baked goods.
Hatch Chile Mac & Cheese
Best microwave Mac & Cheese hands down.
Raspberry and Vanilla Cream Bars
I’m not a huge ice cream fan but these are small and the perfect amount of sweet. Think orange creamsicle but better.
Spicy Chai Latte Mix
Mix a tablespoon of this in with your morning coffee. 100% delicious
Soft and Juicy Mango
My favorite go-to snack
Silver Dollar Pancakes
Easy quick breakfast on the go, I heat a couple up in the microwave, put some peanut butter on them and eat them on the way to work. They are snack size, and smaller than the palm of your hand.
I make a quick salad with this mix. I add apples, strawberries, and sliced Marcona almonds. Then I make a creamy vinaigrette dressing (equal parts Dijon mustard, Mayo, Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, then a dash of salt/pepper). Its an easy, flavorful salad. Looks like this
UGH seriously so good
So those are my top 10 picks that I use the most often. I could make a list about every item in the store but that’d be a little crazy. Try them and you’ll probably make them staples in your kitchen as well.
