My Favourite Things at Trader Joe’s

My coworker has a joke that I live at Trader Joe’s. And this isn’t as much a joke as a slightly exaggerated truth. I love Trader Joe’s and I am not ashamed of it.

From dips to produce to that glorious frozen aisle, my kitchen is always stocked with the yummiest treats from the always affordable, delicious grocery store we call Trader Joe’s.

Here’s what I always have in my cart…

My Favourite Trader Joe’s Foods

Pollo Asado Burrito

This burrito (the carnitas salsa verde is also delicious) is the best quick lunch ever. A little spicy, the right amount of everything, and always filling, I always have these in the fridge for a quick meal.

Romano Caesar Dressing

This dressing is what got me back into eating salad. It is creamy and perfectly mixes salty and savory. I could eat it every meal. Pair with romaine, chicken, and parmesan for the perfect summer lunch.

Mandarin Orange Chicken

I’ve been eating this since high school. The best sweet chicken to serve over rice, I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love it. In college, a bag of this in the freezer barely lasted a night.

Mint Chip Ice Cream

This is the best mint chip ice cream I’ve ever had – and I’ve had a lot of mint chip. It is creamy, not artificially colored {don’t you hate that?}, and doesn’t melt immediately, keeping that freshly opened texture for a while. I want to buy this in bulk it is so good.

Almond Butter Granola

If you’re looking for a good gluten-free, yet delicious breakfast meal, definitely go for this. It is honestly the most delicious cereal alternative I’ve had, and it’s also perfect for a snack.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

This is a necessity in my house. Creamy, crunchy, and that irresistible contrast of sweet and salty, these are the best thing at Trader Joe’s hands down. And. for those trying to curb your sugar intake, they are so rich that you can barely keep down three of them.


Thank you for reading! Let us take a moment to think of those who were affected by 9/11 on the 16th anniversary of the horrifying event.

Stay classy, Internet,
