Trader Joe's Favorites

Hello Ladies!

Hope you all had a great weekend, and your week is off to a fantastic start!


Today I am sharing with you guys some of our favorites from....



Trader Joe's is one of my favorite places to shop!  When we lived in N.C., it was about a 5 minute drive from my house...and I sure miss that!  We are a good hour away from one now, but I go once or twice a month, because it is just worth it!  Below are some of our favorites from Trader Joe's...be sure to leave in the comments your favorites and what we need to try!

MOSCATO


Our favorite wine to drink is Moscato...I grabbed this one to try the last time I was there and we LOVED it!  We just picked up a few more bottles this weekend....and it is only $7.99!  For all you Moscato drinkers out there....give this a try!



ORGANIC TORTILLA CHIPS & PINEAPPLE SALSA


We love chips and salsa...it is one of Jack's favorite things to eat!  These tortilla chips are good, and I really like this salsa...a little heat, but enough sweetness to balance it out!


PIRATE BOOTY

My kids have been loving this snack for YEARS...it is a BIG bag and for only $1.99 you just can't go wrong!


VEGGIE STICKS

This is another one of Jack's favorites!  These are delicious!  


CINNAMON APPLE STICKS

I just tried these for the first time this past weekend, and I really like them!  As soon as I opened the bag it smelled just like apple pie!  These are "airy" and have just the right amount of apple and cinnamon flavor!  I had a hard time closing the bag and not eating the whole thing in one sitting!


HONEY WHEAT PRETZEL STICKS

AJ could eat these all day, everyday!  I prefer these over regular pretzels!  So good.


COWBOY BARK

I saw Andrea post about this little snack on IG a few weeks ago and decided to grab a couple bags!  I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but this was pretty good!  I found it to be pretty rich, but having just a small piece after dinner definitely satisfies my sweet tooth at night!


ROASTED PLANTAIN CHIPS

I tried these also for the first time, and I love them!  These will definitely be on my "regular" list!



BRUSCHETTA SAUCE & BRIOCHE TOASTS


You guys...this Bruschetta was AMAZING...and served on these little toasts...HEAVENLY!!!!  


FIG & OLIVE CRISPS

Mark was not a fan of these crackers...but they are my FAVE!  I picked up some Brie and it was delicious !


EVERYTHING CRACKERS

Another favorite of mine and Jack's!  We are big fans of everything bagels, so these crackers fit the bill perfectly for us!


CHOCOLATE CHIPS

If you guys read here or follow me on IG, then you know we go through A LOT of chocolate chip cookies over here!  I probably make them 2-3 times a week and my family (mainly my boys) gobble them up faster than I can make them!  These chips are great, awesome price, and I keep BAGS of them in my pantry at all times!  


CORNBREAD MIX

Me and the boys love cornbread...and this is the best I have tried!!


BANANA BREAD MIX

Banana bread is a favorite of everyone's here!  This mix doesn't disappoint!


CHOCOLATE CHIP DUNKERS

These are hands down my favorite cookie to eat!  I love having one with my cup of coffee each day!  So good!


PIZZA DOUGH & SAUCE

Trader Joe's has the BEST pizza dough...the BEST!  We love making homemade pizza and their dough and pizza sauce is our FAVORITE!   the dough is only $1.99 a bag and it freezes GREAT!


CHICKEN SALAD

This is DELICIOUS!!!!  I toast up some bread, and this makes the most delicious sandwich I have ever had!  It has pecans and cranberries in it and it is DIVINE!


BALSAMIC GLAZE

Because everyone loves a good Balsamic glaze, and this one for the price is AMAZING!


FRENCH ONION SOUP


This soup is good!  I'm a fan of soup year round..even in the dead heat of summer!  This is super easy...just place the frozen soup in a crock, and cook it in the oven!  


MAC & CHEESE

If you have not tried this Mac & Cheese, you need to...it is the best I have ever had!  Do yourself a favor and just got some!


SHITAKE MUSHROOM CHICKEN

We love this with TJ fried rice!


MANDARIN ORANGE CHICKEN

You guys...this stuff is AMAZING.  My family prefers this over Chinese take out any day!  This has been a staple for us for YEARS...it is so good!  We also love the Teriyaki Chicken!  Serve it with some TJ fried rice and you have a great meal...and it is just $4.99 a bag.  We are a family of 7 and I usually make two bags and it is plenty for us!


VEGETABLE FRIED RICE

We love this!  Super quick and easy to make and the rice comes out perfect every single time!



COCONUT SHRIMP

Mark LOVES coconut shrimp.  I think this was like $4.99 a box and it is pretty good.  He just cooks it up in the deep fryer and its a yummy little snack!


HASHBROWNS

My boys love has browns and these are great to keep in our freezer and just heat them up for the kiddos for breakfast!



MUSHROOM MEDLEY
Mark and I love mushrooms.  This little bag is great to heat up and serve as a side with steak!  So good.


MUSHROOM RAVIOLI

If it has mushrooms 9 times out of 10 we are going to love it...and we love this ravioli.



MINI TACOS

Jack and Mark really like these...Jack peters the beef an Mark prefers the chicken.  They are inexpensive, and great to have on hand for an after school snack or for lunches in the summer!  This has become a freezer staple for us!


MOZZARELLA STICKS

Olivia is a a big fan of a cheese stick....she loves this.  I just throw them in the deep fryer and she will eat these for lunch or a snack!  


BURRATO, PROSCIUTTO & ARUGULA FLATBREAD

DELICIOUS!  I love this for lunch...and I use some of the balsamic glaze drizzled on top and it is amazing!


EVERYTHING BUT THE BAGEL SEASONING& PINK SALT

This everything bagel seasoning is freaking awesome!  I have been using it pretty much every day...I will use it on toast with butter, or sometimes cream cheese, and just sprinkle this on it and it just like an everything bagel...it is so good!  And the pink salt...another one of our staples!


HONEY MANGO SHAVE CREAM
I had heard good things about this shave cream, so I decided to grab some when we were there over the weekend...this will be on my "regular" list!  It smells great and leaves my skin so soft!  I definitely recommend this!


So there are SOME of our favorites from Trader Joe's...if you guys shop there and love something...be sure and let me know!


Thanks for stopping by today...see you guys back here soon!

xoxo,

  2. I also drive an hour to the nearest TJs (which is crazy bc there's a huge TJs distribution center like 20 min from my house ��). I love so many of their items but you've given me a few things for my next list! The frozen pizza you posted is my very favorite! It's good enough I'm serving it at a party I'm hosting this week!

  3. I love the Guiltless Mac n Cheese.....good for those of us counting points! I also love the Apple Cinn sticks and the pretzel sticks! Both are in my pantry! One of my favorite things about the beach house is we have a TJ's 5 min away! So as soon as we arrive, we head to Trader Joes! I do not like sweet wine but I have shared your thoughts on this one with my friends who are!

  4. Love TJ's! You covered so many of my favorites! !'d also add the frozen pork gyoza (pot stickers), the ice cream novelties (mochi, chocolate covered bon bons, oreo/mint chocolate chip sandwiches) and the trail mix and dried fruit, of which they have the best variety at the lowest prices anywhere except bulk stores. Also, they have a great variety of inexpensive and yummy rose wines!
